SAMSUNG 500GB USB 3.0 Portable SSD T1

5 out of 5 eggs Tiny Powerhouse! 03/18/2015

This review is from: SAMSUNG 500GB USB 3.0 Portable SSD T1

Pros: Always moves data as fast as the drive it's coming from / going to. Very small (2 3/4" X 2" X 1/4") and very light. The rounded sides make it feel even smaller. Big enough storage space to do some serious archiving. The built in encryption is easy to set up and should keep most people out of your data.

Cons: USB cable is only about 3" long. Pretty silly, but since the drive only weighs an ounce or two it is supported by the cable and can just hang off the front or back of a PC without issue. It's still a bit pricey but that also is not the biggest con ever because you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: I got blazingly fast transfer rates from my OS SSD to this via USB 3.0. Other hard drives and solid state hybrid drives perform predictably and better than just about any external hard drive of any kind I've ever seen. I moved a 3GB video file for these tests and it came across fine each time. (It played normally from this drive.)

1TB WD Slim SSHD - 60 Mb/s
1TB Seagate Momentus SATA III HDD - 100 Mb/s
2TB Seagate SATA III SSHD - 150 Mb/s
240GB Sandisk Extreme II SSD - 350 Mb/s!!!

I don't know where the marketing people get their information on SATA speeds but 350 Mb/s is the absolute fastest I have ever seen data transfer by a large margin! These tests were all done with my front panel USB3 port.
System:
i5 4670K @ 3.4GHz
ASUS Z87 Pro
8GB GSkill 1866 DDR2
Sandisk Extreme II SSD (OS)
Windows 8.1
EVGA 1000P2 PSU
2GB MSI R9270x (irrelevant to this but brag-worthy!)
Corsair C70 Case

I would recommend this little beast to anyone who needs to take large amounts of data with them. It will fit in a jeans pocket and barely be noticed, plus it feels solid although it is very very light. Carrying the cable will be a bigger hassle than the drive! We are entering a new era, methinks... ;)

5 out of 5 eggs Perfect Trainer 01/31/2015

This review is from: UDI U818A 2.4GHz RC Quadcopter with Camera - 4 Channel, 6 Axis Gyro

Pros: Very powerful. Two modes for novice and experienced pilots. Great stability. Complete trim control. Easy battery swap. Good LED lights and colored propellers to tell which direction is forward. Decent camera, but not even 720p. 5-7 minutes flying time on stock battery -easily upgradeable. Fun and very easy 360 degree flip ability. Comes with a 2GB micro SD card! Manual has some of the most hilarious Engrish ever. Great remote control with buttons for trim, mode, photo, video -all on the fly, plus it tells you the % throttle you are using, so glancing at it can tell you how much juice you're having to give it to keep it up thereby letting you know how close you are to the end of battery life.

Cons: No sounds when recording video. Somewhat twitchy controls and a tendency to overcompensate after maneuvers. Camera transfer with included USB is painfully slow. Camera is really only good in broad daylight. Even a slight breeze will toss it around or carry it away...

Other Thoughts: I got this as a training quad for my company's employees to learn on before I let them fly a DJI Phantom 2+. It is proving to be very resilient and since it's actually harder to fly than a Phantom it is the perfect training vehicle. I am confident that anyone who can control this will be a pro with the Phantom. The video is grainy, but pretty smooth and it adjusts to most light conditions well -but at night you can forget about it. The included USB cable transfers videos and photos at the blazingly fast rate of 1MB/sec. Plan to upgrade the SD card to a class 10 and use a reader if you don't want to wait 10 minutes for videos to download. For the price it makes all the $20 sym@ s-109's i bought seem stupid. Now if I could just get my hands on some spare exactitude electron parts...
