This review is from: ZOTAC 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) ZTSSD-A4P-120G
Pros: Purchased this drive as a replacement for a broken hard drive on a SATA II system. Boot and application load times have decreased by a lot.
Cons: None at the time of writing this review.
Other Thoughts: Seq. Read/Write gets 275/165 in using SATA II controller. The write speed is close to advertised, but read speed requires a SATA III controller, which most of the newer systems already have.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ADATA 16GB UV128 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (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.
