This review is from: HP v125w 64GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD64GHP125-GE
Pros: It's small
64 gb size
Cons: Seems to be connecting at USB 1.0 speed
Slow as molasses
Other Thoughts: I've got a lot of USB drives and I've never encountered one so slow. I can usually transfer data at a rate of 1gb per 2 mins. This one is taking 4-5 mins per gb. I just don't have the time to wait, especially if I'm copying 10 gb and it's taking 50 mins. I thought the HP branding would assure some sort of quality control. But it doesn't. Don't buy. Try another one.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Usually rock solid performance. I've bought at least a dozen of these.
Cons: I'm wondering if WD has stopped manufacturing these since the price has skyrocketed recently. I went to buy one and instead bought two of the 2tb FAEXs for the price of this 1tb drive.
Other Thoughts: I still have old XP computers and need to provide compatibility with these old systems. I like buying non-Advance Format 1tb drives particularly because 2tb is a lot of data to lose and copying 2tb disks take a long, long time. And I don't want to spend 20 minutes or more re-aligning the AF drives. Just wondering if they're going to be unavailable soon.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cheap price. High Storage.
Cons: WD Green drives are NOT BOOT DRIVES! They're designed for media players or for storage. I don't know why there's so many reviews from people trying to use them as boot drives. They're not boot drives. Also you can use them with Windows XP if you put a jumper between pins 7-8.
Other Thoughts: About half of the WD Green drives I have have been dying after 6-24 months of use. I make sure I back up everything I put on Green drives. The cheaper price may not equate with better value because of the replacement costs and the time and effort to copy data to new drives.READ FULL REVIEW
