Team 8GB microSDHC Flash Card (Card Only) Model TG008G0MC28X

5 out of 5 eggs Good Card 05/12/2014

This review is from: Team 8GB microSDHC Flash Card (Card Only) Model TG008G0MC28X

Pros: Bought this to add more storage to a Garmin Nuvi 1450. Does its job and just works. I haven't had a lot of experience with this brand, but they haven't let me done so far; 1 for 1.

Cons: In mid-2012, it was reasonable to buy an 8 GB microSD card for cheap but decent size storage. Fast forward to Q2 2014, really getting anything less than 16 GB is silly as pictures and videos have gotten bigger from higher resolutions, and 16 GB or even 32 GB is now the sweet-spot for price/GB. Also, larger memory units are faster than smaller ones, generally-speaking.

Other Thoughts: Good product, just low-capacity.

5 out of 5 eggs Does Its Job 05/12/2014

This review is from: SCM SCR3310 1 card USB 2.0 USB Smart Card Reader

Pros: It's hard to get excited about a multi-card reader. It's simple: this model just works. Good variety of cards it can read, though newer models are out and can take newer formats and bigger cards.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I haven't used this card reader much personally because I installed it on my parent's PC. Which is my old gaming rig, just reconfigured for "normal" usage, haha.

SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Samsung SSD's are probably as reliable as consumer SSD's get. Although the 840 Pro is more expensive than the 840 Evo, it's a bit more robust.
This drive is very fast, but where I feel Samsung really kicks tail compared to rival SSD's is power consumption. The 840/840 Pro/840 Evo consume less start-up, idle, and full-load power than any other SSD, while being one of the fastest! This is an impressive feat even for Samsung.

Cons: 840 Pro is considerably more expensive and therefore a lower overall value than 840 Evo. I can't recommend anyone buy this drive unless you are putting an SSD in a business or office laptop.
Therefore, price/GB is low.

Other Thoughts: Fast, reliable, power-sipping SSD by a market leader.
