Pros: Seems to work regardless of the heat - so far. Good price for such a large-memory drive, in such a small package. Because of cons, I've put no data on it yet - but it's nice to know that I could protect so much data using the internal encryption software.
Cons: Overheats. Just plugging it in in gets so hot it almost burns. A drive using only memory can get hot, but this much heat will burn the drive out before long.
Other Thoughts: Has anybody else had this problem?
It is not strictly physical: if I tell the OS to stop the USB drive and it tells me I can remove it, but I don't, the temp goes back to normal temperature.
This review is from: ARRIS SurfBoard SB6141 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem
Pros: Invisible: it even sits behind the other TWC cable/phone modem and I've only once turned them both off and restarted them - who knows which caused the hiccup.
Cons: None with an effect on me. So far, though rumors are that after the buy out it may be different.
Other Thoughts: I have TWC phone & Internet. That means I was leasing their modem that I had to reset (turn off, wait 20 seconds, turn back on) often. Bought this SB6141 on advise from several sources for my internet connection. Needed extra cable to go to the new modem, and splitter to use both. No problem following online directions on calling TWC with modem IDs.
A few weeks later our phone died. Called TWC, they came out & (eventually) replaced their modem with a TG1672. No battery! (Had to buy one online.)
As stated above, since that time I've only restarted the 'modems' once instead of often.
If you are buying this to replace the leased modem from your cable company, be sure to follow your cable company's instructions to use them - I've had various clients who DIY and within hours, days, or even weeks, lose their service; in the meantime they were still paying for the company's modem - even though in some cases they'd taken it in. Getting things fixed up usually isn't all that hard, but it may take several phone calls and being sent to supervisors, and lots of hold time, to get your money returned. Follow the directions first and save yourself some hassle.
This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Series UV128 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Black/Blue (AUV128-32G-RBE)
Pros: Price and size are right
Cons: Not sure yet ...
Other Thoughts: I've had it 2 months today. Plugged it in and it wasn't recognized. Tried another port, no better. Tried it in another computer & I was able to read the data. Back to the first computer & it started to copy the data, then quit. After awhile the sys tray notified me that a new device was recognized. I eventually copied all the data. Is it the computer or the AData? If the latter, it's out of warranty. Hope it's neither the thumb drive nor the computer.READ FULL REVIEW
