This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Basics 3.0 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTB110XK3BA Black
Pros: Compact unit that uses USB 3 connection for power. This means no transformer to lug around.
Cons: While I can save a large book file I am working on, 586 MS Word 2007 pages, in about 5 seconds in my desktop computer internal drives, the same file may take 5 minutes to the Toshiba. While it works, such miserable performance, even for a drive running at 5,400 RPM, is lousy.
Other Thoughts: Since I bought this drive as a gift for my daughter, I failed to discover in a timely fashion that it is far too slow. If you like very slow, you will like this unit. Otherwise, I would have returned it for another product.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BYTECC UH-430 Super-Speed USB 3.0 4-ports Internal 3.5" Bay HUB
Pros: Mounting on the front of my Kingwin KT-424 mid-tower case, I find that I use this speedy interface heavily for mostly flash drive data transfers to my other computers. I also like the green LEDs on the fron that confirm a connection. Naturally, I enjoy the USB 3 speed improvement, which is significant. I usually have 3 USB 3 flash drives mounted all the time.
Cons: While the short side mounts are sufficient, I would have made the mounting strips on the side longer for a steadier mounting using 2 screws on each side instead of 1. I move USB flash drives in and out of this hub everyday, which means somewhat busy use. However, I am not suggesting that it is shaky. But, I had a little trouble with the one screw mount on the right side with my particular case. I finally drilled a new hole in my case mounting bar to achieve alignment.
Other Thoughts: Fine product.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Team F108 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive (Golden) Model TG032GF108N3
Pros: While it worked it was fast and capable.
Cons: One day, after about 6 weeks of good service, it simply stopped working. When I tried to format it again, Win 7-64 said there was nothing there, meaning no folders or directory table. In an experiment, I had Kaspersky check it for a virus. No virus was present and Kaspersky "read" it. So, why is it Win 7 cannot see it?
Other Thoughts: I contacted The Team Group manufacturer and requested a utility to restore the drive. I received a reply indicating no utility was available and they would RMA it. Now, after about 4 weeks and no reply, I suspect I have a gold colored piece of junk.READ FULL REVIEW
