Lexar LRW307URBNA USB 3.0 Support UDMA 7/SDXC/SD UHS-I Professional Dual-Slot Reader
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Good but it has some problems 04/20/2014

This review is from: Lexar LRW307URBNA USB 3.0 Support UDMA 7/SDXC/SD UHS-I Professional Dual-Slot Reader

Pros: Fast
Compact
Easily portable
Internal Contacts are protected for when getting thrown in a bag of gear. (ie no chance to bend cf pins)

Cons: compact usb3.0 connector on card reader side
Only lasts about 6 months

Other Thoughts: Had it for about 6 months, Went from reliable to inconsistent and questionable.

Part of the problem imo is the Compact usb B connect on the back of the reader. It takes a lot of strain directly at the connector. Which I have a feeling is part of the reason Mine is now useless. Would of been better to have a standard full size B plug on the device.

I only use it for CF cards, Occasionally I throw a SD card in it at the same time. However It has lost the ability to communicate with the CF card slot. When it does manage to communicate with it and have it show up correctly the error rate is through the roof.

Firmware updates had did nothing to fix this. Neither did replacing the cable. With a new and certified working correctly cable.

While I will accept that its most likely user induced wear and tear on the connector. It still has a bit of a feeling that its engineered to fail. Not to mention the chance that its actually a flaw in the chip behind the connector makes me question the worth of paying top dollar for what is suppose to be a premium card reader that is suppose to be reliable?

I don't travel with my card reader Its not like it has to survive my laptop bag, which I could understand would most likely make this device live an even shorter life.

Eaton 5P Tower UPS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Good strong unit 10/24/2013

This review is from: Eaton 5P Tower UPS

Pros: Hot start capable
Well built
ventilated
screen goes into a sleep state when not actively going through settings.

Cons: I haven't found any yet, Possibly could be a bit smaller but seems they left the extra space mostly for ventilation to prevent overheating during loads
Screen, could do without it to be honest. I prefer not having a screen on the units as it keeps the few paranoid people that complain about everything from being concerned about stuff they shouldn't be sticking their noses in.

Other Thoughts: I bought this unit to replace and older APC smart-ups unit. That was about 10 years old. Since I will no longer buy APC ups's due to constantly getting defective units from them. (we're talking about server grade unit not the cheap ones). Eaton has become my trusted source for power conditioning and protection. This device is no exception to the rule. So far its tested well, recovered correctly during over power and under power sitations.

I use a large number of UPS's like this onsite for user workstations for the reasoning that we have extremely bad power at most sites. Due in part to the proximity to heavy machinery for manufacturing. This tends to result in a lot of under voltage, over voltage and complete losses of power at times for the offices.

SanDisk Extreme Pro 64GB Secure Digital Extended Capacity (SDXC) Flash Card Model SDSDXP-064G-A46
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast

Cons: Price

Other Thoughts: I currently own three of these cards for use with my camera. I've used slower cards with it but Since I do alot of high speed burst shooting. I really need the high speed cards to keep up with the Speed that I shoot at times.

I am generally shooting at 20mpx, at around 7fps peak. I also output in dual format, which is extra taxing on the storage since I only used a single card setup.

You will definitely be happy with these cards if need the speed capabilities.
