This review is from: HP X702 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD128HP702-GE
Pros: Inexpensive for this much storage, small, light, fast read speed.
Cons: Write speed significantly slower than claimed. Less than half, in fact.
Other Thoughts: Bought this on sale elsewhere. Adequate device, just don't expect it to blaze though writes.
Also, I believe the thing is actually made by PNY. I have not had a great deal of luck with PNY devices in terms of reliability, so we'll see how this goes.
This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Ventura Ultra 120GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model MKNUFDVU120GB
Pros: Mushkin name, faster than any thumb drive I've owned so far, seems to be built like a tank - very solid.
Cons: Not nearly as fast as claimed on my win7 core i7-2600K 3.4 gig machine with 16 GB memory. Using ATTO, best I could get was a peak read speed of 216 MB/s, and a peak write speed of 173 MB/s. Not shabby, but FAR from the claimed speeds. Deducted one star for that.
Other Thoughts: Larger, heavier, runs warmer than any USB stick I've had before.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Skype $25 Prepaid Credit
Pros: $25 worth of Skype credit for $17 on sale.
Cons: Skype is now owned by Microsoft, which means they are getting a little more up into your business every day, while the video quality tends to slowly degrade. One egg off for being busybodies.
Other Thoughts: Microsoft continues their maniacal drive to force you into doing everything with a Microsoft ID so they know exactly what you're doing both on and off line at all times. They want to store all your data on their servers, and track your every move, every call.
Who do they think they are, Google and Apple?
