Pretec i-Disk Rex 100 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Quality product 01/22/2013

This review is from: Pretec i-Disk Rex 100 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive

Pros: it performs better than advertised speed

Atto benched
max write 73.07 MB/Sec
max read 77.28 MB/Sec

Cons: also be aware those are Max values, at times it dip down to 25~40 MB/Sec for read speed, and 50~70 MB/Sec writes.

Other Thoughts: I would buy it again

OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-60G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: According manufacture:
Sustained Sequential Read is up to 525 MB/s (SATA 6Gbps)
Sustained Sequential Write is up to 475 MB/s (SATA 6Gbps)

My test on it with atto:
max read 519 MB/s at 8GB sizes
max write 475 MB/s between 256 MB ~ 1 GB

Thanks to Sata III and SSD performance, my boot time on w7 is down to sub 20 seconds.

Cons: n/a

ASRock Z75 Pro3 LGA 1155 Intel Z75 HDMI 2 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 5eggs - Plenty of options with this board, other than well mentioned usb & sata 3.0 on this board, I like how Asrock designed and organized all extra headers down on the bottom side. hd audio, usb, cmos, onboard speaker

Cons: 3 eggs - Cannot have RAID-0 and SSD coexist and have both perform max of their capability. SATA3 SSD boots only with AHCI mode, and RAID-0 only on RAID. I can get a RAID disk (ctrl+l) assigned, and recognized with Intel utility under AHCI mode, but it will bottleneck at 150MB/s. There seems to be no workaround to it. The same 500GB x2 RAID worked on other system and benched around 290 MB/s on RAID-0.

2 eggs - Driver cd, be warned, do all drivers only. Thanks for putting that SmartView garbage software and zynga shortcut all over the place, you know I love these bloatwares so much.

Other Thoughts: The system panel header... maybe I got lazy over the years with it and got use to color coded pins, this time I really have to read which one is Ground Pin
