Pros: -runs cool with minimal airflow
Cons: -none so far
Other Thoughts: I have 2 of these drives in an HTPC/backup server. One is the main recording drive and the other is used for daily backups. The recording drive gets 10-12 hours of active use a day and the backup drive about an hour a day. I just noticed they have just over 18000 and 19000 hours on them and they just work. A quick check just showed no errors, no relocated sectors and only about a 10 degree C rise in temperature rise in a well ventilated but fan free environment. It's a very quiet system and these drives add no sound at all.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: PNY 128GB Turbo Attaché USB 3.0 Flash Drive (P-FD128TBAT2-GE)
Pros: Lots of inexpensive storage for a flash.
Cons: A bit slow.
Other Thoughts: It just works. I immediately filled it with much of my photo library and emptied it to my laptop. It works fine. I've been through this cycle a few times now with no problems.
Real world flash drive speeds are never as advertised and this drive is no different. Seems fairly robust so far & I expect it to last quite a while.
This review is from: WD 2TB My Passport Ultra Portable Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model WDBMWV0020BBK-NESN Black
Pros: Small, robust, fairly fast, super portable, very low power needed. Nice case that doesn't show fingerprints.
Cons: Short USB cable.
Other Thoughts: I've been using this drive almost daily for over a year to do backups and large data transfers between my laptop and desktops. I've always been pretty happy with the speed and really like the fact it runs on USB power. It's almost like having a 2Tb flash drive.
A couple days ago I grabbed my laptop off my workbench forgetting the drive was attached. Before the USB cable came out of the drive it flung it off the bench to the hard floor where it bounced and clattered to a stop several feet away. Other than a dinged corner and couple light scratches there was no damage. I plugged it back in and tested it, even checking through much of it's 1.5Tb of data looking for anything corrupted and it is running fine. I'm now even more amazed at this little spinning platter drive.
