This review is from: Patriot Vex 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PSF64GVEX3USB
Pros: Very small size
Inexpensive (especially with promo pricing)
Cons: Very small size
Only 2-year warranty (compared to much longer for other Patriot drives)
Other Thoughts: This drive is tiny. Very similar in size to your thumbnail. That feature can be a pro or con. If you want to use it as a portable drive, it can be difficult to install or remove from a USB port (it would also be easy to lose). I bought this to put in my TP-Link router to use for multimedia storage and streaming. I won't need to insert or remove it frequently, the small size is unobtrusive and not prone to damage. While it can't compare to Sandisk Extreme drives, it is satisfactory (got 127/24 read/write on USB 3 port using CrystalDiskMark).
I just received this drive so I can't comment on it's reliability.
BTW, I got 64GB for $17.xx - so that's a pretty great deal, IMO.
This review is from: ARRIS SURFboard SB6141 8x4 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem
Pros: Big savings over paying monthly rental fee
Fast enough for Comcast Blast! tier
Cons: Lights are brighter than necessary
Other Thoughts: I got this when I switched to Comcast with Blast! speed tier. Getting speedtest results that are as good or better than advertised (overprovisioning apparently). Overall completely satisfactory modem.
Only two negatives are that 1) The lights are very bright - but I reduced this (also on router and cable box) using "Dim-It" filtering film. The other problem 2) the unit is very lightweight and can be moved/tilted by the coax cable and ethernet cable. These are both minor issues and not worthy of deducting an egg.
Pros: Very good user interface & easy to setup
Decent range & signal throughout my house
Button on back to disable wireless
Got great deal in combo offer with modem
Cons: Bright lights on front of unit
Other Thoughts: Heads up on James M.'s review below. It appears he is actually reviewing a different product from a different manufacturer (Amped Wireless NOT TP-Link). There is no provision to dim or turn off the front panel lights on this model (and they are pretty distracting). The unit he is talking about does have an LED button on the back to perform this function - but NOT this product.
Overall a good bang for the buck, high quality router. Lots of configuration options and ability to use open source firmware is a plus.
