This review is from: Silicon Power 128GB Blaze B05 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SP128GBUF3B05V1K)
Pros: Really no pros with this item, except perhaps for its black color.
I purchased this item with one of the Newegg specials. Over the years, I have purchased many Newegg specials with great results, fast shipping, great prices, and items that proved themselves to be very good buys. I had expected much the same from this Silicon Power 128GB Blaze flash drive, but this one did not make the cut of Newegg's usual very high standards. (I had written a previous review on this item, at the time feeling a bit of anger, so I am sure that Newegg will not post that review, please). I am trying to be as objective as I can and simply state why this item is a total failure. I understand that many vendors to Newegg purchase much of their merchandise from China; I find that this item's failure is just another example of the type of low quality that so often we find ourselves with China manufactured items; the build quality is not there and the performance quality often lacks also. I am sure that there probably are many of these same flash drives that are working for their buyers as expected, but like anything mass produced, there always are defective product, as every single item is not inspected or checked. I happened to receive one of the defects.
Cons: - very slow to copy files -- note inserted into a USB 3.0 port
- overheats, gets quite hot to touch
- the pushout slide is very difficult to work, takes way too much effort to slide out; then when attempting to slice back into the case, again way too much effort, and the slide does not want to move at all, the only acceptable result so that it may be used is to have to leave the USB connector slid out with no attempts to return it back inside its case; once back inside the case, it may not ever come out again.
- overall build quality poor, the case is weak and flimsy with little strength; certainly with hard pushing on the slide to get the connector out and then again to get it back inside will eventually damage or break the case
Other Thoughts: - I cannot recommend this product to anyone, unless they are prepared for the same results as I received; as stated earlier, I am sure that not all of this product suffers from the ills that the flash drive I received does, that there probably are many better performing drives, but how can you be sure you will get a good one?
- as much as I would love to return this item to Newegg (I am sure that they would make things right), I carelessly destroyed all the packaging. The flash drive will go on the shelf and cannot be used for general multiple copy/move tasks; instead if it will copy several GB of photos and music, it simply will be used as backup storage
Pros: Not too stiff, good latch,
Other Thoughts: Bought these cables to replace another brand purchased from Newegg where one cable out of 4 purchased failed within one week (wrote review on that one too). Very happy with these cables, especially the latch, which works much better than the failed brand. Will buy this cable again.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TOPOWER TP-6205BB-500 Black SGCC 0.5mm ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 500W Power Supply
Pros: Nicely constructed case for the money -- no sharp edges internally --- very good looking --- plenty of room for multiple drives --- quiet power supply
Other Thoughts: This case is very attractive, plenty of room for any size motherboard, multiple drive installations, easy installations. Am very pleased with the case, which was used to install a motherboard and CPU and SDRAM that had been purchased a couple years ago and never used. I have no complaints about this case and would buy another one if I needed it.READ FULL REVIEW
