SanDisk Extreme 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ80-064G-A75
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

2 out of 5 eggs Be advised 03/24/2013

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ80-064G-A75

Pros: Fast transfer if it works

Cons: Poor quality control and cheap construction

Other Thoughts: Sandisk makes good products generally. The Extreme seems to be an exception. Speed is very important, but reliability matters even more. If you absolutely need a large, fast, USB 3.0 flash drive, go for the Lexar. If you can wait, look at the new Corsair, which is not yet widely available. If you buy the Sandisk Extreme, cross your fingers and prepare for the drive to fail. When the Extreme stops working, repair your registry but not by following the advice that's on the Sandisk website.

Koutech IO-PESA230 PCI Express Low Profile Ready SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs Watch out for incompatibilities 03/11/2012

This review is from: Koutech IO-PESA230 PCI Express Low Profile Ready SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card

Pros: Unknown

Cons: A controller card would allow me to extend the life of an old motherboard. This card is not compatible with an ECS: GF7100PVT-M3 (nVIDIA chipset). The incompatibility creates a mess -- Windows won't start, orphaned and cross-linked files. It's not adequate to disconnect all drives from the card. You must also remove the software driver.

Other Thoughts: This review adds to a growing a list of incompatible boards and chipsets for this product. Manufacturers who do not document incompatibilities are behaving irresponsibly.

Cavalry CAXA Series 1TB USB 2.0 / eSATA External Hard Drive - CAXA3701T0
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Buy this only if you don't need it 02/11/2011

This review is from: Cavalry CAXA Series 1TB USB 2.0 / eSATA External Hard Drive - CAXA3701T0

Pros: An external, portable, device for storing data, especially backups

Cons: Owing to poor support by the company, you can't count on it

Other Thoughts: I run a daily backup of my entire system. One backup goes to an internal hard drive, a copy goes to an external drive. I bought this 1 TB unit to supplement 2 320 GB external drives. It worked fine for about a month, then suddenly failed, making all of the data inaccessible. The company issued an RMA, gave detailed instructions about acceptable packaging, required a considerable outlay for postage, and provided no information about receipt, process, or transit. It may arrive at my door some day. If it does, I'll put it back into the routine. 1TB is a nice size, but anyone who counts on this drive as your main backup source is asking for trouble. You'll be happier if you buy an external hard drive case and put an old reliable drive back in service.
