IOGEAR GCS1924 4-port DualView Mini DisplayPort KVMP Switch with Peripheral Sharing
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: * The surface finish matches my MacBook Pro...

Cons: * Only need 1 montitor support, this supports 2 which increases the cost.
* Doesn't work with any of my machines (HP Elitebook, Mid-2013 MacBook Pro 15", whitebox desktop workstation with AMD FirePro W5000x2)
* Super expensive
* Clumsily packged so it will be nearly impossible to return
* Much larger form factor than I have room for on my desk

Other Thoughts: IO Gear has historically made really good stuff. This device will not be going in IO Gear's hall of legendary gear. This device belongs on the desk of a senior engineer with a sticky note attached that says "Redesign".

Mushkin FLUX AT-ENCKIT Aircraft Grade Aluminum 1.8
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: No DoA units. Reliable connection.

Cons: Gets really hot. Concerned about drive longevity.

Other Thoughts: I've purchased so many mSATA to USB3 enclosures. Nearly all of the have the same footprint as this one: Kingston, Mushkin, and three brands I've never heard of. Except for these Mushkin units, none of them was reliable. In every other case, it seems like the connection to the adapter board is flimsy. Even swapping around USB cables, only Mushkin was consistently reliable.
On the consumer Newegg site, the Mushkin units have so-so ratings. I ordered 5 of these, expecting 1 failures...I now have 1 extra! I'm guessing Mushkin resolved the issues they and other manufacturers were having.
These units do get uncomfortably hot. My SandForce mSATA drive is worse than my Samsung EVO's but based on estimated active drive power consumption alone, this is not surprising.
I love the form factor of these. Having 1TB portable backups (1 each for my Linux and Windows laptops, and my MacBook Pro) is really convenient. If you do this also, don't forget to encrypt your drives!

HP X702 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD128HP702-GE
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Windows On the Go! 06/23/2014

This review is from: HP X702 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD128HP702-GE

Pros: * Plenty fast for my use
* Great form factor -- fits in standard USB allocated space

Cons: * There are no cons for this device.

Other Thoughts: I use this for my Windows On the Go drive for forensics work. 128GB is plenty for the OS and some tools, and when I need more I just connect a larger drive via USB.
Most 128GB USB3 drives are considerable larger. I like the size of this one. I do what I can to travel as light as possible because when I have to use this, I usually have a lot of gear with me.
