CORSAIR Flash Voyager 32GB Slider X2 USB Flash Drive Model CMFSL3X2-32GB
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Nice design, fast reads 07/08/2015

This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager 32GB Slider X2 USB Flash Drive Model CMFSL3X2-32GB

Pros: Feels solid for being plastic, the slider locks into place well.
Fast reads.

5 year warranty

Corsair name which has a good reputation.

Flashing mild blue LED at the end which is clear plastic.

Cons: Wider then most but not enough to block ports unless you have another wide USB stick and horizontal ports.

More expensive then other established brands for the same size in a competitive market.

Average writes speeds, abysmal 512K random write speeds.

Other Thoughts: Without a cap debris could get inside especially lint if carried in a pocket.

Transferring a 1GB mixed folder to the X2 started out at 83mb/s but dropped to a measly 13mb/s by the end.
Moving the same folder back to my Raptor it started at 301mb/s and finished at 83mb.

29.8GB after format as expected.

First unit died after a few hours with bad blocks where the master file table was located.
It could have just been a dud but it makes me leery about longevity. One egg removed due to this.

Overall a decent USB drive for reading from but not so much reading to. The slider clicks well into place, it's lightweight and feels sturdy.

Klevv Genuine 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Memory Model KM3G4GX2Y-2400-11-13-13-31-0
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Klevv is a new memory brand by Essencore which uses high binned select memory ICs and claims rigorous quality and reliability testing.

The fit and finish is nice and aesthetic, the black PCB is different from the standard green.

The white LED lights on the top are not bright but put off a soft ambient glow.
The LED's are also in a unique pattern, not just round which looks appealing and artistic.

Multiple memtest rounds showed no errors, they worked at default JEDEC and once in BIOS and choosing XMP profile they worked again at the correct settings.

Lifetime warranty, though that has been standard with memory for a long time.

Cons: Price, they are 2-3x the price of more established companies with the same size, speed and timings [ due to the added LED's].

The heat-sink although nice looking upon a tear down from another review of this model shows the black portion is aluminum but the silver frame is made of plastic.
For the premium price plastic was a surprise as I've never seen it on any RAM I've ever purchased.

Other Thoughts: 1.65v is technically out of spec for Intel but it can be done.
These modules are both overclocked and overvolted but can be backed down manually.
I was able to drop voltage to 1.5v @ 1866 with 9-10-9-27 which is equal to other top end ram at that speed.
You may have to increase VTT in BIOS to 1.15v for stability @ 1.65v if not done automatically.

The heat-sinks are quite tall [ 2 inches] so if you are using a large aftermarket cooler they most likely will not fit under so measure before purchase.

Klevv makes other modules for a lower cost if LED lights are not for you or you lack a windowed case.

Neo and Urbane use all aluminum heat-sinks. Same speed, size and timing are much less thus in a sense you are paying quite a premium for just the LED lights.

If you have a window on your case and want to see some glow the price premium might be worth it to you.

I'd suspect with competition they will drop in price to compete with established brands.
Klevv is a new player in a saturated scene and longevity and credibility has not yet been established.

Overall good enthusiast RAM, no issues and worked at the correct timings.

Seagate Expansion 4TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs No drama instant storage 04/17/2015

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STEB4000100

Pros: Solid built, attractive, heavy for being a plastic case.
Rubber feet keeps it stable on hard surfaces.
Plug and play, the drive was already formatted to 3.6TB.
It fired right up once plugged in and was recognized by windows.
Simple and mild blue LED to know it's ON, blinks when being accessed.
Included HDD.15 ST4000DM000 is fast for 5900 RPM due
to the 1TB/platter and cache algorithm.
Works with 3.0 and 2.0, tried both without issue.
Generous 4ft USB cord.

Cons: Only 1 year warranty, the drive inside by itself has 2 years.

The drive is a HDD.15 ST4000DM000 which does not have the most robust track record for reliability.

As an external drive their NAS version could be better suited.

Power brick [wall wart] is on the larger size.

Other Thoughts: No active cooling, it does have vents in the back and bottom of the case.
Once it heats up with file transfers it does not appear to cool
down fast but remains stable.
That said with sustained transfers it reached 96F which is well within spec and should not be a concern for longevity.
