This review is from: SanDisk Extreme 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ80-032G-A75
Pros: This drive does the job very well, has been detected by computers virtually every single time without hiccups, and transfers speeds was fantastic (under the host's capabilities)
Cons: It finally died after one month and a half of daily usage, see the other thoughts section. This might NOT be the drive's fault. An RMA is currently underway with SanDisk.
Other Thoughts: I'm an IT guy, and I have used this drive on customers PC on a daily basis to diagnose, clean or otherwise service PCs in a computer shop. Basically every PC I have to touch has used my USB key, and I use this drive in a write once, read *ALOT* of times, where I have ISO's and Live OSes being booted off this USB key.
Considering the (ab)use above (read: INTENSIVE usage), this might have shortened the drive's lifespan dramatically, even if this is basically "read only", albeit alot of reads. Just to be on the safe side, I always safely eject the drive off PCs, even though this might just alter the partition and not the physical drive.
This review is from: Crucial M4 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CT064M4SSD2
Pros: No issues to report so far. OS has no clues it's running on a SSD.
Cons: I would have assumed a tad more performance out of a SSD (this is my first SSD drive), this might be not be due to this actual drive model however.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works like a charm. I have set that up on my secondary PC at home acting like my router, with Debian Linux on it. The modem never acted weird in the months I had this product so far.
Cons: None?READ FULL REVIEW
