Pros: Said to accept a great variaty of cards
Cons: Never worked constantly. Or simply, almost never worked.
It only works occasionally, at a frequency of about 3 or 4 weeks out of a year period. which means during the 2 years ownership it showed up for about 2 month, and I only had a chance to use it once.
Other Thoughts: Almost whenever I need it, it doesn't show up in windows. I hope rosewill could design some kind of driver software to make this thing work more steadilyREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Have two of them, both from Newegg. This drive is very quiet and the price (when with MIR) is unbelievable for such a huge capacity.
I am pretty sure that this drive generates less noise than WD Green, which is famous for its quietness. I have had Seagate drives, WD Blue, WD Green, Hatachi 7K2000 drives etc., this makes least noise, you'll never hear it working if you keep your case close.
Cons: Not very fast. 5K3000 serious, in terms of 4K IOPS tested with HD Tune, is about 60%-70% performance of my 7K2000 2TB drive. But who cares? the purpose of this drive is quietness, power efficiency, and capacity. It is doing its job perfectly.
Other Thoughts: The proper subsidiary storage drive for SSD, or other fast drives like 7K3000, WD Caviar Black etc.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Patriot Xporter Dash 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model PSF32GDUSB
Pros: Very good price for the capacity.
Cons: First, it is slow. Tested it on my EVGA X58 and SONY Z39 laptop USB ports with HD Tune, results yield a reading speed below 15MB/s, write is between 3~4MB/s.......miserable.....
In addition, It is a little fragile. It feels like I can twist it without much force, and at the same time it makes slight plastic rubbing noise. Also I suspect the little handle, which pushes the USB connection out, could break some day in future.
Other Thoughts: For the price, (didn't get the MIR yet, but it is $25 after rebate.) it is a good product. Reading speed about 14MB/s is acceptable, write is just too slow.
For Patriot brand, I expected more than this.
