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?
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit
Pros: Seems stable
Cons: I'm using 8.1 on a tablet, and Microsoft INSISTS on tying everything on the machine to a Microsoft account, including logins and everything else.
All the apps on the machine insist on it.
And all the while Microsoft insists this is helpful, this is good for you, while they poke their nose into your business. What a crock.
It's ridiculous, I hate it, and frankly, I'm investigating installing Windows 7 on the machine.
Other Thoughts: I know Google does this with every phone, tablet, and netbook. And I know Apple does this with every phone, tablet, and computer. That does not make it right, or even sane.
