Pros: Fast and silent
Cons: Generates more heat than I expected
Other Thoughts: My laptop touchpad gets warm now that I've installed this Corsair SSD. A household thermometer placed on my touchpad reads 94 F.
A Kingston SSDNow V+200 I purchased last fall and even a Western Digital Scorpio spinning hard disk ran cooler than this.
Consider other brands if you're looking for a cooler drive.
Pros: Easy to remove
Cons: The plastic that makes up the hole at one end seems very thing and might break.
Not very fast
Other Thoughts: Using a magnet, see that most of the drive is magnetic except for the black end with the hole in it.
Plastic hole seems thin and might break.
The metal part of the drive has a smoke tint to it.
Comes with 3 1/2 “ beaded chain that is 1 1/2" when made into loop. Once on my key ring total length including chain is 2 1/2 "
When inserted into the computer, the flash drive extends 1/2 inch.
Times for copying 10 large files totalling about 2.4GB. My laptop has a USB 2.0 port and the operating system is Ubuntu Linux.
Silicon Power Touch T01 Mini 8GB USB 2.0 - approx 10 minutes
Patriot Xporter XT Rage 16GB - a little over 3 minutes
The flash drive is small, easy to remove and aside from the thin plastic end that the chain loops through, seems like it should hold up on my keyring.
I have faster USB flash drives but on my key ring this is more convenient.
Pros: Great colors
Cons: NO HDMI even though Newegg description says it is
NO USB hub as I saw in some other description
Very bright blue LED power light in lower right
Built in speakers are unimpressive
Screen doesn't seem perfectly level but seems to tilt a little to the right
Other Thoughts: NO HDMI even though Newegg description said it was.

I'm using this for my Google ChromeBox so I never did anything with the included software.
I wanted a cheap large monitor and this fits the bill nicely.
I wish Google Chrome had large fonts but I can't blame that on this monitor.
Happy with my purchase.
