WINTEC FileMate 16GB Professional Class 10 Secure Digital SDHC Card - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Great Performance on Garmin Zumo, Nuvi, PC and Cam 05/11/2013

This review is from: WINTEC FileMate 16GB Professional Class 10 Secure Digital SDHC Card - Retail

Pros: Purchased 3 of these.
Formatted out of the box
Ease of use
Works flawlessly on Garmin Zumo 550 & Nuvi 765T
Works Great on PC
Great Transfer Speeds. Crystal Diskmark results 19.90 MB/s Read 11.34 MB/s Write
Limited Lifetime Warranty

Cons: Write speed falls just slightly short of the maximum write speed on the packaging.

Other Thoughts: I got a few of these for use in my GPS units and PC. It's formatted out of the box. I plugged them all into my USB 2.0 internal card reader. Copying my roughly 2GB Garmin map file took only a couple of minutes. I used them in my Garmin Zumo 550 and is detected the full size of the ssd, loaded my maps fine from the SSD and played MP3's. Same results with my Garmin Nuvi 765T.

I Did additional speed test with Crystal Diskmark 3.0.1 , set to random data and 1000MB test size.

Results as follows
Sequential Read Speed 19.9 MB/s Write 11.34 which comes right in line with the packaging estimated of up to 20MB/s read but a bit short of the 15MB/s write estimate.

Rest of the results
512k Read 19.72 Read 4.584
4k Read 3.050 Write 0.914
4KQD32 Read 3.214 Write 0.111

Overall at $15 each, no tax free shipping and limited lifetime warranty and the overall performance I couldn't recommend these more highly.

OCZ Synapse Cache SYN-25SAT3-128G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This drive does exactly what it promises. Giving you SSD performance from your standard HDD on your exhisting Windows 7 install. Easy to setup, and nothing to do, it works automatically from there. Reduces game load times by 50% or more. Windows boot time triple the speed. This drive cache's my full 2 TB Raid Volume (out of 4TB total) which is split into two partitons, OS parition and other parition I install my games and programs to.

Cons: Doesn't support more than 2 tb partiton or more than one HDD or RAID Volume. Only supports windows 7, doesn't support two of the synapse drives in RAID0.

Other Thoughts: I reccomended the Synapse drive who use it on computers with a SATAII Controller. They're both using RAID HDD's and notice massive improvements in application load times, especially MS Outlook. I have a SATAIII Controller, I got 550 Reads and 500 writes on ATTO benchmark. Wonderful performance, worls flawlessly, and no problems with the cache even when i've had the occasional blue screen (do to overclock testing). Get it, you wont be sorry.

Corsair Performance 3 Series CSSD-P3256GB2-BRKT 2.5
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Good drives and customer service. Ignore 1 star reviews for DOA units 04/02/2012

This review is from: Corsair Performance 3 Series CSSD-P3256GB2-BRKT 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Firs off please don't get put off by people who place 1 star reviews for a DOA unit as those reviews don't give a fair view of actual performance of the drive. My friend has owned a 256GB Corsair SSD for over 2 years and it's had great performance. He just now is getting bad sectors on the drive and calling OCZ support they're replacing his 2 year old SSD with a new Force Performance 3 SSD. Great going Corsair.

Cons: Ignorant people who put up 1 star reviews for DOA units. All manufactures have them, it happens.

Other Thoughts: Corsair sells solid products with great overall quality and performance and excellent r service.
