Samsung 128GB BAR (Metal) USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Speed Up to 130MB/s (MUF-128BA/AM)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I get 30-40 MB/s write speeds consistently when copying large file such as movies to it. I have seen on rare occasions 130MB/s, but it is only for a second and then drops down to the 30-40 range. While nowhere near 130MB/s on a consistent basis, I'm happy with the speeds I do see. Much faster than my Patriot Glide USB 3.0 drive which peaks at 8-9MB/s. Cool design. Metal casing makes it feel like a quality item. Good price.

Cons: Smaller than you might expect. No lanyard comes with it, which, in my opinion, is needed being so small and easy to lose. Not a big deal, but I do wish it came with an LED.

Other Thoughts: I'd buy another one no problem.

Maxtor 4TB D3 Station Desktop External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 STSHX-D401TDBM

4 out of 5 eggs Works great so far. 08/12/2016

This review is from: Maxtor 4TB D3 Station Desktop External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 STSHX-D401TDBM

Pros: Been using this drive for over a month now with zero issues. Installed, detected, no problem. Seems fast. I consistently get about 85-90Mbps write speed on large file transfers. I like the design. Compact. Great price at under a $100. Comes with a good software package that will appeal to some. I didn't need it as I already had paid for back up software.

Cons: You get a non-standard USB cable (A to micro-B) that is ridiculously short at about 32.5". If you keep your PC on your desktop, you'll probably be OK with this length. If your desktop is under your desk, like with me, good luck in getting this short cable to reach.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this drive to others. Just be aware of the short USB cable. This is the only reason I deducted one egg. I ended up buying a 6' cable to replace it.

Patriot Glyde 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PSF64GGLD3USB

1 out of 5 eggs Sooooo Sloooowwwww 07/01/2016

This review is from: Patriot Glyde 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PSF64GGLD3USB

Pros: 64GB. USB # 3.0 (snicker). Well, that's what the box says.

Cons: Average about 8MB/s. Not even close to USB speed.

Other Thoughts: I had to laugh at Patriot's response to another poor review below. "Cost effective entry level USB 3.0 drive" Now go buy our much more expensive thumb drives that might actually be USB 3.0 drives. Hey Patriot, If it doesn't perform to USB 3.0 speeds, then don't sell it as one!
