This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager GT 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFVYGT3B-128GB
Pros: Pretty close to advertised read/write speeds. I'm seeing around 200MB/s read and 110MB/s write on Windows 8.1 on a Z68 board.
Price is not too bad vs. competitors offerings. 5 year warranty.
Cons: Bulky. No cap loss protection.
The prior model CMFVYGT3A-128GB appears to have an extremely high failure rate which may carry over to this model, so I'm a little nervous about trusting it for anything important that isn't backed up elsewhere.
This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PB10400 :10400mAh Dual-USB Ultra External Portable Charger/ Power Bank,2A Fast Charging, Compatible with iphone, ipad and all iOS and Android Devices, Practical Flashlight
Pros: Well priced for this type of product.
90% efficiency rate
Protected against: Short circuit, over-voltage, over charge, over discharge, over heating, over current.
Charges relatively quickly, around 5 hours using my Nexus 7 charger (see cons below).
I tested it vs. my motorola android car charger and it seems to charge my Moto G just as fast on my drive to work. Charging my Nexus 7 vs. using its charger was slightly slower even using the 2A plug, but nothing to write home about.
Cons: No charger included and only 1 cord. Not a big deal though if you already own any recent Android devices.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: WD Purple WD40PURX 4TB SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Surveillance Hard Drive Bare Drive
Pros: TLER, ATA streaming.
Very good performance, around 5 - 10% faster than a Seagate ST3000DM001 I benched it against (in seq r/w & rand r/w). It is in fact the fastest mechanical drive I've tested.
Very low noise, I think it may be quieter than my WD Greens and also stays unbelievably cool. I have not seen it go above 30C.
3 Year warranty.
Cons: A little pricey, but not that much more than a WD Green, so not really a deal breaker.
Other Thoughts: Although not "recommended" for use in a NAS I moved it into a 4 bay Synology after running benchmarks, etc. on my desktop to replace a 3TB unit so that I would have 4 x 4TB and it has been working just fine alongside 3 WD Greens with no problems so far.READ FULL REVIEW
