This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler Generation 4 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTIG4/128GB
Pros: Attractive, delivers 26.8-30.6 GB write speed for large photo inventory.
Cons: No transfer indicator light. While not essential, I like to see that a transaction is in work as indicated by a flickering LED. Case width a tad large making for at tight fit next to another USB drive, but it does not prevent use.
Other Thoughts: I subtracted 1 egg for no light.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Basics 3.0 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive HDTB110XK3BA
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
