This review is from: Team Xtreem 64GB microSDXC Flash Card With Card Reader Model TUSDX64GUHS05
Pros: Worked as-is w/ Samsung Note 3 (which can read exFAT) with a Meenova microUSB adapter.
Works on Nexus 10 (which I bought it for) using the same adapter after formatting to NTFS and using Paragon NTFS & HFS app (which requires your device be rooted). Nexus 10 can't do exFAT apparently.
Cons: Card got *extremely* hot during the write phase while testing with H2testw.exe. Almost too hot to touch. I put a flexible ice pack on it once I noticed for fear of the heat damaging the card. I removed it during the read portion of the test to see if it would get hot again. It did, but not nearly as hot as when writing. This probably wouldn't occur during "normal" use, but may if you're reading or writing several gigs of data on it at once.
The included USB adapter has a keychain attachment, but the connector is always exposed (no cap, doesn't retract). I put it on my keychain, but doubt I'll ever use it.
Other Thoughts: H2testw.exe results:
Format: NTFS w/ 64kb clusters, 60,340 MB available
Write: Consistently 14.7 MByte/s. Took 68.5 minutes to fill the card.
Verify (read): Consistently 17.7 MByte/s. Took 57 minutes to read the card.
Notes: All tests were performed using the Meenova microUSB adapter. I did not try formatting the card to FAT32. I assume it would have worked on the Nexus 10 formatted as FAT32 without any additional software, but I don't want a 4 GB file size limitation. I already have a microSD in my phone, so I did not try it internally.
This review is from: APEX TM-302-3 Black/ Silver Steel MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case 300W Power Supply
Pros: -Inexpensive (didn't want to say "cheap", as it's fairly well built)
-Includes power supply
-Includes 1x80mm rear fan
-Much sturdier than other cases I've used in this price range
-Includes fan shroud for the CPU fan
-Very quiet, nearly silent, only thing I can hear is the hard drive I installed in it
Cons: -Only 1x3.5" bay
-Front panel difficult to remove without fear of damaging it and it *has* to be removed to mount 5.25" drives
-Internal "rails" for mounting a 5.25" drive (e.g. DVD burner) are weird and left my DVD drive a bit loose
Other Thoughts: Wish it used a 120mm rear exhaust fan instead of 80mm
Wish it could mount a front intake fan (preferably 120mm)
The front is ugly. Plain black wouldn't look as cheap as the silver does. That being said, due to the price, I feel like I bought a power supply and got a free case. :-)
Used this to throw together a new office pc for my dad:
Core i3-2120 3.3GHz
ASUS P8H61-M LE/CSM
4 GB DDR3 and a 750 GB SATA hard drive I had laying around
All things considered, I would definitely purchase again for a cheap build. Almost want to buy another just to have a spare handy.
This review is from: CORSAIR Survivor 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFSV3-16GB
Pros: Fast, sturdy and well designed body. Dirt cheap after rebate if you can actually manage to get it.
Cons: Died after about 3 months of light use.
This is not an isolated issue, as others have had them die after 2-3 months and have complained about it on the Corsair forums (search for "Corsair Survivor 16 GB 3 months", thread id is 98245).
Those that have bothered paying to ship back their devices with an RMA have had them replaced with drives that just fail again after a few months, indicating that the root cause has not been addressed.
Other Thoughts: FWIW, I've owned several other brands of flash drives and never had a problem like this before.READ FULL REVIEW
