This review is from: Silicon Power 128GB Blaze B05 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SP128GBUF3B05V1K)
Pros: - Works well
- No problems with PC or mac
- Protects itself (physically)
Cons: - Case feels a bit fragile
Other Thoughts: I formatted this in windows and used it on a macbook without any issue. The design was stylish and it seemed to be quite quick.
I couldn't really get consistent benchmarks, but I would put it about at their advertised speeds.
Really there's not much to say other than it works, works well, and looks good doing it.
If you are in the market for a USB 3 drive, this has a ton of space and so far seems quite reliable. I would definitely recommend it for work or at home.
With 128GB you could definitely load this up with movies for a trip or for your phone (if your phone works with an adapter, my android did).
This review is from: Corsair Gaming K70 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Brown
Pros: - I've programmed, gamed, and typed on this and it never has failed to register a keypress or double up.
- Awesome colors
- Great responsiveness
- Nice finish
- Volume Wheel
Cons: - Media keys do not fit the "theme" of the board
- Software was a bit clunky
- Lots of effort for customizing RGB profiles
Other Thoughts: I really highly recommend this board.
I've read reviews, I've seen complaints about dying LEDs, but I still recommend it. It types great, it sounds great, and it feels great.
It has awesome RGB profiles available online, or you can make your own. Don't expect it to be super intuitive though, the software kind of sucks and creating your personalized RGB profiles takes quit a bit of effort.
I've used other corsair products lately and they have all been solid, so I really don't expect this to be any different. I know corsair has really been making a push into gaming peripherals lately, and the K70 stands out.
I wouldn't recommend this if you just want a pretty keyboard, while it is pretty I feel that the super high-raised keys take a bit off the aesthetics, and I think that some competitors probably have brighter/better lights.
If you do want a really solid board with a company behind it that has a proven track record in the gaming scene, I do recommend the K70.
A final note, this uses Cherry MX Brown switches, your middle of the road, everyday use switches. If you type regularly and game regularly, this board will rock your world.
Pros: - Cheap, massive SSD
- Near advertised speeds
- Easy to install
- Very light
Cons: - I think I could break this if I dropped it
- Frame got bent when screwing in (I was gentle)
- Less than stellar memory chips
Other Thoughts: Installation was easy enough, if you have ever installed a hard drive or SSD, it's the same thing. One thing to be careful of was when I tightened in the screws I actually bent the frame of the drive. I don't know if I got hulk powers or it's just cheap metal, but it happened.
I read up about the memory chips and it seems like they went with the ones that aren't nearly as durable as offerings by higher tier manufacturers. If you are looking for a storage drive for games, this will work great, but if you want to put your game saves on it, you might want to look into something a bit more expensive.
I read some negative reviews saying this drive died on them. I didn't have any problems in the past month, but that doesn't mean it won't blow up next week. While that's true for ANY piece of hardware, reviews suggest it happens more frequently with this drive. Take it with a grain of salt.
I recommend this drive for anyone looking for cheap SSD storage.
