This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced atom 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model MKNUFDAM32GB
Pros: Got it on sale so good price per Gig.
Cons: Slow for 3.0.
I have a Patriot Supersonic 3.0 I've been using for a long time now. So when I got this Mushkin I tested them both copying a 1.6 Gig folder full of 100s of files with various file sizes from 1k to 20Mb.
The Muskin accepted the files (write speed) between 8 and 14Mb/sec., mostly around 12MB.
When I wrote that folder back the PC (Read Speed) it ran between 22 and 28MB/sec., mostly around 22MB.
Same PC, same port, same 1.6 Gig folder using my Patriot Supersonic 32G:
Write ran between 11MB and 19 MB/sec. Mostly around 12.
Read ran between 61 and 91MB/sec., mostly around 68MB.
Other Thoughts: While faster than 2.0 USB thumbs this Mushkin was disappointingly slow.
I'm a big fan of their SSDs. I own 2 in fact. But this 3.0 thumb was unimpressive in my head to head real world speed test with real files.
Pros: Steady power. No issues.
My first modular. So nice to not have unused cables. Helped my airflow in some areas.
Rebate came back 6.5 weeks after I mailed the forms.
Cons: Flat cables kinda suck. I prefer round shielded but I knew this before I bought it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC240GOPT-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: I bought 2 of these with the rebate deal.
I read the reviews below and figured its NewEgg so if I get a bad one I know they'll take care of me. Mine both have the Silicon Motion controller.
So far no issues. Mine are in Raid0 and running everyday. I've had no issues at all.
I benched them individually before the Raid setup and they are not the fastest SSDs but fast enough. In Raid of course they are lightning fast benching at 793Read/689write in ATTO. My Mushkin SSDs in raid are hitting over 1000 both Read and write in ATTO but they are not $79 for 240G either.
Cons: Faster SSDs are out there.READ FULL REVIEW
