This review is from: PNY Attaché 2 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD32GTBAT2-GE
Pros: Nice and slim, easy to plug in next to closely stacked USB cables or flash drives. Nicely textured hard plastic, which won't get sticky like the rubber ones.. Reasonably fast for the price. Cap snaps on securely. Strong looking lanyard hole.
Cons: No activity light, which is a MAJOR inconvenience. Maybe it has one that doesn't work, but I can't find it. Gets a bit warm, which I guess is cost of USB3 speed.
Other Thoughts: If the lack of an activity light doesn't bother you, I recommend it. In that case, I recommend you use the Windows dismount utility in the Sys Tray to prevent data loss.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Solid construction, HDMI, boots fast, great for i3 CPU's.
Cons: Priced on the high side for this type of board. Should be around 20 bucks cheaper.
Other Thoughts: You have to pay attention when installing the drivers from the included CD. If you're not real careful, it will install useless bloatware like Symantec AV, Google Drive, and Google Tool Bar. An premium priced board like this should be free from annoying bundleware.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Heavy, meaning it has copper and big iron coils inside.
Decent price, meaning I can build a system that's affordable
Whisper quiet. I can't even hear it.
Plenty of connectors.
Comes without a cord. Everyone has 10 extras, right?
Cons: Stiff braided covering on main cable bundle. Maybe it's attractive to some, but it's just bulky and stiff to me. I rather good quality, flexible bare wires.
Other Thoughts: I build a lot of "business" machines. I use mostly i3 4330, which is a perfect business CPU, and it draws only 65 watts. I use Samsung EVO SSD's which draw maybe 2W. I use a WD Green storage HDD's, which draws perhaps 5-6W. The whole system with everything maxxed out at once probably uses 120W. It's not like the old days when you need 500W minimum just to get by.READ FULL REVIEW
