This review is from: ADATA 16GB UV128 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (AUV128-16G-RBY)
Cons: Like most USB drives ... if you take them out without properly ejecting they will start to have issues. Easily remedied with HP's USB Format Tool.
Other Thoughts: I have had over a dozen of these and still am using the first one I bought. How do I know ? I write a number on them because I want to know which drive is oldest and has had the memory used the most. I have had to re-format it over a dozen times due to being impatient and removing it without a proper eject. I have several OS's and Repair tools on them and Codysafe portable repair tools. I recently reformatted my #1 USB and it is back to functioning perfectly. Next time I will check for bad blocks with Rufus. Just picked up 3 more at $7 ea and had my Tech partner buy 4 more for the same deal.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: USB 3.0 – Decent Speed Performance
4TB Hard Drive support
With proper configuration it works very well with a Video Server HTPC etc.
(Need to use NoSleepHD software to stop drives from going to sleep.)
Cons: The sleep feature that is common to these devices and drive combinations
has no internal or switched setting … so drives typically go to sleep every 10 minutes
... this can be irritating for a video server / HTPC user since meals or breaks happen during show viewings.
Other Thoughts: Just download NoSleepHD - a 25k utility that pings the drive every 9 min or preset time to keep it spinning during viewing times.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Solid build quality
Mainboard USB 3.0 connector and 2 USB 3.0 ports
Power button for Hard Drives.
Great for hot swap capable Motherboards
Cons: A tad high in price. I bought the second on sale plus a 10% off bitcoin code. Dollar cost averaged to be a decent price for both units.
Other Thoughts: Very please with the purchase. I have always had removable hard drive bays in all my main PC's ... now I have that bay "Plus" one for a 2.5" drive so I have swapables between desktop and the DVD-HD-tray Laptops I use. Considering you get a motherboard USB 3.0 connector with 2 USB 3.0 ports ... in the right situation this is a very good deal. My case was an older case with a newer Mobo ... so it worked out well for me.READ FULL REVIEW
