HyperX DataTraveler HyperX 3.0 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTHX30/64GB
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Above all- Reliable.
Large enough for now
Fast enough for now ;D

Cons: Fat Form Factor- can't get into tight places.
Pricey- but I needed something I could count on above all consideration. Still, for this price it should have the best of all worlds as much as possible.

Other Thoughts: I use this thumb drive heavily on the job. I've owned other brands and none of them have survived- a couple even with normal use. Brands I thought should have known better. I can't have that at work.
Kingston was more expensive, but I've used it heavily, washed it, dropped it down a stairwell, been in a pool- I even managed to crack the casing on one- and it still worked without data loss. I gag at the price- but this has saved my tail more than once.

Canon VIXIA HF M52 (6093B004) Black 1/3
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great picture. Not difficult to use the basics. Strongest thing about it is its ability to get great video in low light settings. I LOVE having 32GB and room for over 2hrs of HD. My days of 30 minute videos are done. It's light and has pretty flexible display. Battery life is about 2hours.

Cons: Wi-Fi is more complicated and inflexible than it needs to be. Note: Works with AES but not with TKIP+AES on my WR. The auto-focus is slower than I'm used to. Does not support USB 3.0. Some of the setting details are not as clear for general public- but it isn't rocket science either. Complete battery recharge- about 5hr- have a spare.

Other Thoughts: First- I did not get it here but on clearance as I suspect they are turning over the line. Overall, this is really a great deal- take some time out to use the features.

SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC256N/AM 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I bought this for a laptop purchase I’m going to make soon but tried it out in my old SATA (SATA1 if you prefer) 2006 LT and it worked without a hitch. Be sure that when you install it to enable AHCI to avoid possible problems. The Ghost utility is a nice thought and it worked OK for an OS disk copy and the shim that comes with this specific package was also useful as this drive is so thin it would rattle in the LT compartment otherwise. Of course you’re not going to get all the advantages of a SATA3 system, but it did at least double my boot speed over my old 320GB/7200RPM drive and GUIs are definitely snappier. The SSD software that also comes with it measured close to 100Mbps and about 10K IOPS (remember it’s an old SATA1 LT).

Cons: These things will stay pricey until we have more competitors with more capacity. That may be very soon.

Other Thoughts: I got this on a sale at the time, so I thought it was reasonably priced considering the market. I also bought it with a future LT purchase in mind- otherwise you’re better off with a less expensive drive. Still, this drive is very easy to install even on older systems and I think the extra $10 for the LT kit is worth it for less handy folk. I look forward to seeing what this baby can do on my new LT and may write that review later.
