This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler SE9 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model DTSE9H/16GBZ
Pros: Perfect. Durable, small, high capacity, works.
Other Thoughts: I can't believe I'm reviewing a USB stick (although I see over 100 other people have), but this item is so great I just have to.
Kudos to the designer at Kingston who realized that people who carry USB sticks around want them to be (a) small, (b) durable, as in the little ring that attaches to the keychain not being prone to break after a week, (c) high capacity, (d) free from a cap. This item is simply perfect. I had been through 3-4 USB sticks, on three of which the ring attaching it to the keychain broke after a very short time, and all but one of which were uncomfortably large to carry around. This design is top notch; I can't recommend it highly enough.
Pros: OK, it's a case.
Cons: Only comes with one rear mounted fan.
Other Thoughts: If you're going to put the words "Cooler Master" on the front of a case, then the case ought to cool the components. Here's the description of this item: "All your components will stay cool in the Elite 335 Upgraded, with its 120mm rear fan, one optional front fan, one optional bottom fan and three optional side fans. "
I can tell you from experience that those "optional" fans don't do much to cool the unit if you don't install any of them. My system displayed signs of overheating until I added more fans.
There are plenty of places to install the "optional" fans, and you'll want to install the one in front at a minimum. One can legitimately ask why the maker, whose name, I repeat, is "Cooler Master", doesn't do that for you, since it is absolutely necessary. It's not very "cool".
