Kingston 64GB DataTraveler SE8 USB Flash Drive Model DTSE8/64GB
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs Not particularly speedy on writes 07/03/2015

This review is from: Kingston 64GB DataTraveler SE8 USB Flash Drive Model DTSE8/64GB

Pros: capacity

Cons: My write speeds averaged 6mb/s. I get the same write speed whether the unit is formatted for EXFAT or reformatted for NTFS. Most of my USB 2.0 drives have write speeds of 10 mb/s, the slowest giving me at least 5 mb/s on older units. I expected a faster write speed on a newer unit.

Other Thoughts: It's case has a nice design.

5 out of 5 eggs Best bang for the buck 03/08/2015

This review is from: Panasonic BK-3MCCA12SA 12-pack AA eneloop Rechargeable Batteries

Pros: I’ve purchased several dozen of the Sanyo Eneloop AA and AAA batteries over the past few years. They will seemingly last forever if you use a good charger such as the POWEREX MH-C9000. Any charger used needs to have a microprocessor that can read the battery and keep from overcharging. Cheap chargers can permanently kill the batteries within a few charges. When new, before first use, I run a break-in charge that takes about 48 hours. When needing a recharge I run a regular charge but select a low 300ma charge rate which takes about 6-8 hours. If I do that, on subsequent charges, the batteries typically charge to about +5-10% of their rated capacity. After a number of charges, if they don’t exceed their ratings, I run a REFRESH/ANALYZE cycle that will bring them back over spec again. I haven’t charged any of these more than a few dozen times so I can’t say how long they will actually go. I use these batteries in everything in the house from remote controls to game console controllers to clocks and flashlights. I bought size adaptors to use AAs in size C and D applications. Remote batteries typically have lasted two years before needing recharging. The batteries have lasted in Wii controllers almost as long as alkaline batteries before needing to recharge. I keep about a dozen charged and ready to swap out as they hold up to 75% of their charge for 3 years sitting unused.

Cons: Charging times when charging them properly.

Other Thoughts: These could literally last most of one's life when properly charged. Key is to buy a quality charger. It may seem fifty bucks is a lot to spend on a charger but when you figure alkaline AAs on sale cost about 50 cents each, and two charges on these will equal one alkaline, and Sanyo says they can be charged over 2000 times, even with diminishing returns the overall savings over the years is huge with a side benefit of less old batteries ending up in landfills.

Cons: Charging times when charged properly

Other Thoughts: When on sale they can be gotten for about 2 bucks each versus fifty cents each for a quality alkaline. Each charge doesn't last quite as long as an alkaline but with the capability of being able to charge them 2000 times they are a big time money saver long term. I'll be dead long before the batteries have reached their end of life.
