Pros: I put a Team 240Gb SSD in the case and it runs reasonably fast.
Cons: Very picky about the USB 3 port used. Under Win 7 64bit didn't like the front panel USB 3, it either didn't recognize the device or would run very slow when it did. Used a USB3 extension into a rear MB port and it rocks for an external (~200Mb/sec read & write). Very short built in cable (~4 in)
Other Thoughts: All in all works really well with the SSD, just be prepared to play with it to get the higher speeds.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Inexpensive and works great with Win 8 64bit. Runs 1080p with no problems.
Cons: Not really a con, but be aware this only comes with a short bracket making it pretty much useless in a normal case. Also VGA pig tail only, no DVI. What you see in the picture is all you get.
Other Thoughts: I always wanted to try a Quadro card and at this price I couldn't pass it up. I don't game and was more interested in the display image quality . . . and this little guy delivers. So if you want an inexpensive card to play with go for it. This card was never intended to be for gaming so don't expect it to be something it's not, but what it can do it does very well.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Kingston 16GB DataTraveler SE9 USB 2.0 Flash Drive (DTSE9H/16GBZ)
Pros: I've carried various USB drives on my keyring for years and through the school of hard knocks have come up with a list of requirements. This USB drive meets these requirements.
The metal housing is high quality and durable with a big enough hole to actually be used directly on a keyring. The drive is small enough to be unobtrusive while still allowing a good grip. The USB plug has a full shroud for dependable insertion/connection.
This drive is reasonably fast ~17.5 MB/S read, ~12.5 MB/S write. Not screaming fast, but plenty good enough for everyday use.
All in all, this is the best USB drive I've ever owned, and I've owned a mess of them through the years from about any manufacturer imaginable.
Cons: Not really a con, just a heads up. The drive is open on the end so dirt and debris can get lodged in the opening. If it bothers you a slip on cap from another drive can be used.
Other Thoughts: I was worried about the case, but it is a none issue. It is a very high quality extruded aluminum (way better than I ever anticipated).
The drive is made in Taiwan using Toshiba chips giving me the opinion this drive has a high overall quality.
