This review is from: SanDisk Extreme 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ80-064G-A46
Pros: Fast, light, compact, and retractable. I formatted this to NTFS to take advantage of larger individual file sizes and benchmarked with HD Tune Pro with very satisfactory read/write speed on my laptop USB 3.0 ports.
Cons: None so far. I am not crazy about leds, but this one is actually pretty dim, as to not be so much of a distraction in ambient lighting. In a dark room it would probably be a bit of an issue for me.
Other Thoughts: I have been looking for a decent higher capacity USB 3.0 flash drive, and this appears to be the one to get based upon multiple sites bench-marking it with a variety of different applications. This drive is always in the top three.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper TX3 - CPU Cooler with 3 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Pros: Low price and super fast delivery.
Cons: Used this on a socket 775 motherboard. I hate the clips for this chip configuration. They always tend to bend and/or break unless you take the motherboard out of the tower. Even after removing the motherboard, applying Arctic Silver 5, aligning the clips correctly, and applying equal pressure so all clips are pushed through the motherboard fully, the performance has a lot to be desired on a Q6600 overclocked to 3.0Ghz. The idle temps are at 45C. The stock Intel HSF had them at 40C. Again, I am not impressed.
Other Thoughts: I expected better.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: As mentioned in a previous review, the drive enclosed is Z7K500 HTS725050A7E630 and not H2IK5001672SP (0S02858), which actually is not a bad thing because it has better specs. It has 32MB of cache and is SATA 6.0Gb/s instead of 16MB of cache and SATA 3.0Gb/s. I am pleased with the response, boot speed, and average 98.6MB/sec benchmark speed. It fit perfectly fine in the drive tray even though it is a 7mm height drive instead of a 9.5mm. To be honest, the extra 2.5mm of space probably allows this to breathe a little better. I ordered this on Thursday morning in Virginia, using the Newegg 4-7 day free delivery option, and it delivered Friday afternoon. Thanks Newegg
Cons: It wasn't free
Other Thoughts: For a 500GB 7200RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s drive, $50 is a heck of a good deal. Hopefully this drive will be a long lasting one. My fingers and toes are crossed.READ FULL REVIEW
