This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced atom 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model MKNUFDAM32GB
Pros: For my purposes, which was to add storage for recording off a digital video recorder, this device is great. It is very small, so it doesn't stick out too far from the front panel. It has sufficient speed that I can record full HD programs off the air without losing any frames. I haven't had a lick of trouble with it.
Cons: None, although I can't say how fast it is under USB 3.0, since my machine only has 2.0 ports.
Other Thoughts: I bought a couple of these for around $15 about a year ago. Since then, the promo price is down to $12. My advice is to buy a couple; you'll have use for them and they won't let you down.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Fosmon 3 Port HDMI Switch / Switcher 3 x 1 Auto Switch 3-In 1-Out with Pigtail Cable
Pros: This switch works exactly as described.
Takes up to three inputs
Switches from one device to another autmatically, or
you can switch them manually
Picture quality is fine
Each active input is shown by an LED on the switch
Cons: The output cable could be a bit longer, but, in my case, at least, it was okay.
Other Thoughts: This switch is easy to use. You simply plug in up to three HDMI cables from your devices, then connect the output of the switch to one of the TV's HDMI inputs. The switch will automatically select the last device to be energized. For example, if I turn on my DVD recorder, it will be selected. If I leave it on, then turn on my DVR, then this will be selected. If I want to go back to the DVD recorder, I simply push the button on the switch to move it to that input.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Team Color Turn 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Brown) Model TG032GE902CX
Pros: Cheap, compact, reads reasonably fast
Cons: I bought these to be used in storing the output of a DVR. Turns out this device writes too slowly to capture HD or even 720p transmissions without skipping. Works on standard def okay. I've been using a San Disk Cruzer 32 Gig, and it has no problems capturing any definition, so I was surprised that this unit couldn't handle high and medium def. I'm not going to return them, since they work just fine as storage devices, and the price from NewEgg was so low, it would cost me almost the same amount to return them as I paid for them.
Other Thoughts: This device is not totally useless, just keep in mind its speed limitations may not be useful for your particular application.READ FULL REVIEW
