This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop Hard Drive STCA4000100 Black
Pros: Affordable. Seems fast enough
Cons: 4KB native drive with no option that I know of to use Advanced Format (i.e., 512b logical sectors)
Other Thoughts: If you want to do drive cloning between an external 4TB drive and a standard internal 4TB Advanced Format SATA drive, DON'T BUY THIS DRIVE. You will not be able clone to or from this drive to an Advanced Format drive. It's extremely disappointing to find that Western Digital has the option to format their 4TB drives with 512b logical sectors but Seagate does not. I spent $160 or so on this drive only to find out the hard way that it's essentially useless for my purposes.READ FULL REVIEW

Other Thoughts: It's exactly what you'd expect. Nothing more, nothing less.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model CMFVYA32GB
Pros: While it worked, it worked well.
Cons: During the last couple of months, I noticed it wouldn't always be recognized right away when first inserted into a USB port and would need to be reinserted. Tonight, it stopped working; while plugged into a USB port, it slowly becomes hotter and hotter.
Other Thoughts: I purchased it from newegg on 5-19-2012. It lasted two days shy of a year. Is that long enough? I think not. Sure, USB flash drives can be fickle devices, but if it doesn't last at least two years then it's a waste of money.READ FULL REVIEW
