This review is from: Seagate GoFlex Desk Kit 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" External Hard Drive STAC2000106 Black
Pros: Lots of storage space when it works. Faster than my USB 2 drives. Initially very happy to own it.
Cons: After 3 weeks of little to no use, it died while moving just 20GB of data with "delayed write failed" messages and clicking sounds. All data that was on drive was lost. No longer appears as a disk when connected to ANY PC.
Other Thoughts: Did not install supplied software. Used only for cut/paste operations. Spectacular failure is a classic example of made in China junk. I had thought much better of Seagate until this experience. I should NOT have trusted it to help organize my files. I'm usually more careful than that.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Team SR1 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive (Blue) Model TG032GSR1XL3
Pros: Very fast even on a USB2 port compared to Kingston 2GB drive. Instead of 2 minutes 10 seconds to write a 650MB file, it was just 42 seconds! Can't wait to use on my equipment with real superspeed USB3 ports.
Cons: The plastic housing quality is *almost* comparable to a breakfast cereal toy. It is cheap, cheap, CHEAP! Care must be taken when transporting this drive or it will surely crack and break. Retractable switch very flimsy too. Regardless, happy with the purchase!
Other Thoughts: Please manufacture it to be more durable and charge another $1 or $2. Even without activity LED, such improvement would perfect it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Trusted brand name and warranty, very affordable, and works fine in Dell Vostro 230 with latest BIOS 1.4.0 installed. Shows 4GB total, the maximum the system will accept! : )
Cons: I do not know why the Crucial website did not list this memory as compatible with Dell Vostro 420. I was almost going to buy something more expensive, but this works great.
Other Thoughts: Dell originally shipped 2GB DDR3 1333 PC10600 memory in the system even though it actually runs at the slower 1066 speed. Probably due to the 1066 bus of my CPU. Recommend installing latest mainboard BIOS prior to replacing memory or CPU.READ FULL REVIEW
