Pros: Was fairly cheap and included a microSD to USB and microSD to SD adapters. Maintained 10MB write and 20MB read on most larger file sizes.
Cons: Speed drop under 10MB/s quickly on small files however this shouldnt be a big deal on most mobile or camera applications.
Other Thoughts: Raw stats from "USB Flash Benchmark" using the supplied USB2 to microUSB converter:

Pros: Fast! Newest Tech, Long life. Included software transfers your data with ease! No need to boot from a boot disk and do a bit-bit copy.
Cons: Not as fast as i was hoping, but still fast! Not really a con, but i couldnt think of anything else.
Again, not really a con.. But the 850 EVO just came out too... 1 week after i purchased this!
Other Thoughts: Replaced a 840 EVO with this 850 PRO. I have 32GB of ram of which i can not really tell how much RAPID is using. Seems to be around 4GB or so (from the non-paged pool). I can say that i have never been beat on my load times on League of Legends!
Dont have any raw stats, but i am running an older Ivy-Bridge 3770. Using Magician, my speeds are right where Magician says they should be, but the IOPS are slightly lower. I am sure that is a limiting factor of my mobo.
Pros: Cool and Quiet since it is based on the newer Maxwell architecture. No additional PCIe Power needed.
Cons: No SLI
Other Thoughts: I purchased this for my HTPC, that doubles as an occasional game machine. Usually Same-Screen Co-op games for having friends over.
29C idle at 34% fan speed (on Auto)
Simple GPU-Z Load test running for 1 minute increased overall load to 99% and temps stabalized to 45C with still just 34% fan speed. TDP only hit 58% of max as this is not the best test to run.
