SanDisk Ultra Fit 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive 128bit AES Encryption Model SDCZ43-064G-G46
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: It's tiny, so you can leave it in the port on a laptop. Makes it great for one of those low-capacity on-the-board storage laptops. It's USB 3, so it's fast.

Cons: It gets really hot on the underside metal. I bought the 64gb model over the 128gb because of all the reviews people wrote about the latter getting so hot - apparently they both get hot. Seems to stay hot even while idle. It's hot enough that I feel the need to pull my finger way from it to avoid burning myself.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my sister who has a HP Stream with only about 21gb of usable space (don't buy a laptop based on it's color). I moved all of her documents, pictures, and music to it and you couldn't tell the difference performance-wise.

3 out of 5 eggs Practical, but electronics are not durable 11/07/2015

This review is from: ORICO 1106SS Tool Free 3.5 SATA to 5.25 SATA Stainless Bracket Internal Hard Driver Mounting Bracket Adapter

Pros: Tool-less hard drive swaps, power switch, and activity light

Cons: Electronic components lack durability. Had hard drive go out in one of the bracket (I have 3 of them) and the bay went out. So I put it in another bay, unaware it was the HD, turned it on to see the light come on and dim out. So now I'm down 2 brackets. Suggests to me there was an electrical issue with the hard disk that destroyed the controllers in the brackets.

Other Thoughts: I need to replace these, but I may look for a competitor's product. Or I may just go without as it isn't the first time I've had problems with similar products. Last product I used (Icy Dock 4-drive bracket) had power issues, too, and burned out all the drives I put in it at once (hurt the computer budget).

SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Decided to take the plunge with this as I was doing a fresh install of Windows 10. My laptop has space for two drives, so I kept the hard disk and setup the windows equivalent of symbolic links to store user profiles and some programs on the hard disk. Windows boots in about 5 seconds which is an insane improvement from before.

Something to remember about V-NAND, it's supposed to last a lot longer than NAND flash. You can upgrade to this with confidence.

Cons: None so far.
