PNY Attaché 2 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD128TBAT2-GE
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Nice big flash 01/11/2015

This review is from: PNY Attaché 2 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model 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.

WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBMWV0020BBK-NESN
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great big little backup 01/11/2015

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBMWV0020BBK-NESN

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.

WD Green WD40EZRX 4TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Faster than expected, very quiet, very cool running, lots of space.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Plugged it into an external case, only 2tb shows. Plugged directly into SATA port on desktop and see all 4tb. In W7 set to GPT, create and format a partition, put back into case and all is well. As others have stated, if you don't see the whole drive, it's not the drive's fault. In W7 it just works.

I'm pleasantly surprised at how cool and quiet this drive is. I have it in an external aluminum case that's very compact but has no ventilation. Other drives run 20-35 degrees C above ambient but this drive only gets to 10-11 degrees C above ambient, even after running a surface test for 7 hours and then copying 3Tb of data to it. And if the case didn't have an activity light, you'd never know the drive was running.

If you need 4Tb, I recommend this drive.
