This review is from: DEEPCOOL M3 Laptop Cooling Pad 15.6" with 2.1 Speaker System 140mm Fan
Pros: This is a nice laptop cooling pad, has 2 usb ports and a micro usb port, nice 140mm size cooling fan.
Built in speakers that sound good for what they are, comes with speaker cable to connect to laptop and comes with usb cable.
built sturdy enough and looks nice too boot, cools laptops enough to keep that heat source down to a more minimal temperature.
Packaged well for shipping should mean you wont receive a damaged product when you receive it.
Cons: While I like this as designed for a 15.6 inch laptop I think it should be setup for a 17.3 inch laptop and usable for a 15.6 inch so you can have one cooling pad for either size laptop depending on what you have.
Other Thoughts: Overall I thought it to be a nice product that does the job it is designed for, and the built in speakers are a welcome bonus as most laptop cooling pads do not offer them.
It looks nice, sounds good, and cools well enough for it to be a laptop cooling pad that I would recommend to family, friends, or anyone looking for a nice laptop cooling pad.
So pick this up if you are in need of a decent colling pad for your high heat laptop.
This review is from: CORSAIR Voyager Mini 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFMINI3-32GB
Pros: This flash drive is quite small being a mini. It has brushed aluminum casing that looks nice, and a rubber piece with key ring loop attached. Seems durable enough even though I didn't put it through a rigorous test to see how long it lasts physically.
I did put it through plenty of read and write tests using it in usb 2.0 and 3.0 ports, using varying file sizes from 500mb up too 4gb.
USB 2.0 (4gb file)
read = 145 to 185 mb/s
write = 11 to 16 mb/s average time was about 3 minutes
USB 3.0 (4gb file)
read = 145 to 185 mb/s
write = 16 to 22 mb/s average time was about 2 and half minutes.
As you can see the read speeds between 2.0 and 3.0 were pretty much identical, while you do gain a little bit of write speed with usb 3.0 over 2.0, But not a whole lot.
On average the read speed of the 4gb file transfer to my SSD drive was about 10 seconds, and write speed of the 4gb file transfer from my SSD to flash drive via usb 2.0 or 3.0 was an average of 2 and a half minutes to 3 minutes.
The smaller files I used for this test were 500mb and 1gb the write speeds were the same usb 2.0 11 to 16mb/s and usb 3.0 16 to 22mb/s but with faster times, while the read speed of the transfers back to my SSD were virtually instant.
Cons: The only con I have with this 32gb mini flash drive is the inconsistent write speeds they were up and down, they would start at 44 to 60mb/s then drop down to 11 to 22mb/s depending on usb 2.0 or 3.0 and fluctuate up and down constantly. Hence the 4 egg review.
Other Thoughts: All in all if you want a usb 3.0 flash drive this will certainly do what you need it too.
It works fine for transferring files to and from PCs.
Its very small so its not an eye sore like some bigger flash drives, easy to store in pretty much any place you might need too.
As far as durability it seems to be rugged enough but as with anything only time will tell.
I recommend this mini flash drive, and its corsair so you get a great company to back your warranty to boot.
