This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Series UV128 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Black/Yellow (AUV128-16G-RBY)
Pros: Very cheap
Cons: Very slow write speeds, which made the rating lose two stars. Some benchmark scores in "Other thoughts" section.
Other Thoughts: I've purchased the 16gig drives during the 3 for $12 sale, and after doing some benchmarking on an Apple computer with USB 3.0 and Blackmagicdesign's Disk Speed Test, all three drives reported the following speeds:
Not surprising, especially since other reviewers had very similar results, and while the write speeds are very slow for a USB 3.0 drive, the read speeds are decent if you're using them for things like OS installation.
I've also read that these can break from time to time, but the three I received seemed to be in working condition during my testing. If they break, there's always the warranty coverage.
This review is from: Rosewill RCX-Z90-AL - 92mm Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
Pros: - Works better than stock Core 2 Duo hsf, and almost same size
- Comes with thermal compound applied to the heatsink
- The plastic fasteners seem to install with less effort than Intel's
Cons: - Can get loud at times (see Other thoughts)
Other Thoughts: I've purchased this hsf to replace the stock Intel on a C2D CPU. The case I've used this on was limited on space, so I needed something that would be close in size to Intel's, and this one was only slightly taller. Initially it was loud, spinning at over 3000rpm, but I ended up changing the fan settings in BIOS (can also be done with third party apps in Windows) so it would spin at 2400rpm, which is very quiet. It lowered idle temp to around 50c (stock was 60c with indoor temp at ~25c), and doesn't go over 63c under load (this system isn't used for gaming) when the stock hsf was hovering in top 70's to low 80's.READ FULL REVIEW
Works with latest Canon DSLR cameras and Apple laptops.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: I got this card a few days ago, after it was on sale, for a Canon SL1 DSLR camera. I've performed several speed tests using Black Magic Disk Speed Test application and the results were as follows:
With Transcend RDF5 reader and USB 3.0 - 90/60 read/write.
With MacBook Pro's built-in card reader - 85/58 read/write.
Ran the same tests on an older FujiFilm SDHC 6 card, and got 14/7 read/write.
