This review is from: Silicon Power 128GB Blaze B30 USB 3.0 Swivel Flash Drive, Black
Pros: This thing is a fast as lightening, has an impressive capacity (128GByte), and is amazingly small.
It fits in a normal USB port without crowding its neighbors.
I have not noticed it heating up when I do something intensive (e.g. 30 Gbyte file transfers).
I bought this along with a "Corsair Flash Voyager Slider USB 3.0 128GB," and with the performance and price of each of these, I can't imagine buying a lesser USB thumbdrive.
Cons: Built-in software is an annoyance to me. I re-formatted it out of existence before I used the drive.
Other Thoughts: Any very large drive forces a choice of file format. I choose exFAT over NTFS (both proprietary to Microsquash), Apple's HFS+, or the opensource ZFS. FAT32 is hopeless, maxing out at 32 GByte.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Sennheiser HD598 On-Ear Headphones
Pros: The sound is clear, warm, and rich. I'm an old rock and roll guy, but the only really good quality (.flac) audio files I had on hand were a set of cello pieces. Mein Gott! I think I might have to change my favorite musical instrument. I can hear every detail, the "attack" of the bow as it strikes and caresses the strings. And the beauty of that instrument - this is auditory heaven.
I can't wait to hear Crosby, Stills, and Nash on these babies.
The fit is comfortable.
The long (3m) cable will be helpful sometimes. I like the locking plug on the headphone end.
Cons: Same old issue with the 1/8th inch headphone jack. All of my computer and stereo equipment has 3.5 mm jacks. I will eventually buy a 1.5 m cable with 3.5 in jacks on each end, and light weight to boot.
Other Thoughts: I very much recommend this specific pair of headphones. I did not know you could get this level of quality for $150. - $200. Sennheiser makes really good headphones , and these are my favorite.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I was amazed when the migration software allowed me to move my entire Windows 7 boot drive to my new SSD. It was as easy as a few mouse clicks. I attached the 840EVO as an external USB drive using the SATA-to-USB converter included with my drive. Then I loaded the migration software. I ran the software, choosing my boot drive as the source and the SSD as the destination. Finally, I replaced my boot drive with the new SSD AND IT BOOTED UP IMMEDIATELY AND WITHOUT ANY ISSUE WHATSOEVER! Amazing.
The 840EVO is fast, even for an SSD. Mine was the 250 GByte model, and it is, indeed, lightening fast.
I highly recommend this drive and the use of the included software.
Cons: I have no complaints.READ FULL REVIEW
