This review is from: WD 8TB My Cloud Personal Network Attached Storage - NAS - WDBCTL0080HWT-NESN
Pros: Works fairly well in Ultimate Edition Linux (writing software to auto detect it) I am by hobby an Operating System Architect & Leading Programmer. I see at peak 110 MB/s via avg 90 MB/s, 80 at the low. Make sure you have Gigabit. Cables mean a ton, do not bottleneck yourself. I had cat5e and was a horrible product. I have a Netgear Nighthalk 8000 router, pay attention to the color of the lights. Ordered Cat 7 cable. Cat 6 right now. I have been writing custom firmware for this bad lad. Turn off all features you do not need. I do have Iphones in house and flicked off Itunes serving. I have Winders devices in house and can not find it in Win 10, ironic is it not; even hard wired.
Cons: I have a Quad Core Atom running Win 10 (Voyo V2) used as a media center in the bedroom and can not find the NAS even with Western Digitals software & hard wired. It has a USB Netgear AC 6200 wireless adapter, I am currently fighting with, because the integrated is something to be desired. The built in wireless works, but causes it to cut out in HD & 4K, not the fault of the product until I get connectivity.
Other Thoughts: I have attached a 6TB USB3 Hard disk to it and functions perfectly. The My cloud portion of it works well, unless you want to access your control panel. It is limited on ram, when you strip services it is a rock solid performer. I am robbing it of an Egg because it does not play well with Windows, it's intended environment. Probably should have robbed it of 4 eggs. 90% of my house uses Linux.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Ventura Ultra 60GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model MKNUFDVU60GB
Pros: It works, made from Aircraft Grade Aluminum.
Cons: Expensive for what you get. I bought this thumbdrive and a
ADATA DashDrive Elite UE700 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model AUE700-128G-CBK for $10 more This drive is slower, half the size and runs extreamly hot. I do not look for this drive to last a year. I'm snatching 2 eggs, one for heat and the other for the overrated speed. It does function and is physically well constructed. The speed rating they are providing is a synthetic benchmark and not realtime, realworld thoughput as one would expect to see.
I see 85MB/s when I copy and paste to this drive a far cry from the 445MB/s they advertise and the 220MB/s I see with the Adata as they also advertise. I have purchased other Mushkin thumbdrives and love them. This drive in perticular was a real let down. An expensive lesson learned.
This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Elite UE700 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model AUE700-128G-CBK
Pros: No, I do not work for Adata, and no I do not get any comensation from sending them business. That said, this drive is FAST!!! and spacious. I purchased this drive and a Mushkin Ventura Ultra 60 (claimed to be 455MB/s) This drive blows the Mushkin out of the water. When Adata says it is 220MB/s they are not lying, the speed they post it at is realtime, realworld speed, not some synthetic benchmark or test.
I have purchased many Adata products over the years and all have stood the test of time. I look for this drive to be no exception.
Nice looking, fairly durable construction. Adata stands behind thier products as you can see by manufactures response throughout this website. There may indeed be a faster drive out there, however I have not physically ran into one yet. I have at least 20 thumbdrives currently and over the past have had hundereds of thumbdrives.
I build Operating Systems (Ultimate Edition Linux) for a living, so I go through thumbdrives like most people go through underwear & speed helps me get my job done quicker. This is my #1 tool in my current arsenal. Thanks Adata
Cons: I did not buy 2 instead of the Mushkin Ventura Ultra 60READ FULL REVIEW
