BIOSTAR TZ77XE3 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: worked great (until it didn't)

Cons: Ethernet and USB began intermittently failing functionality after 10 months of use. I see other folks here have had similar issues so I'm not the one-off. I won't be trusting this manufacturer again.

Kingston DataTraveler 100 2GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model DT100/2GB
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: There is no cap to lose. The slide locks open/closed like a retractable box-cutter. I am getting write speeds at an average of 6MB/s which is excellent in my book, especially when compared to my newer 16GB 'water-proof aircraft-aluminum' model, which only writes at 1.05MB/s on average.

Cons: The plastic feels a bit cheap/flimsy. If this was a longer model with a cap, I'd be afraid it would break. As it is so small though, the cheap plastic seems adequate enough I guess. I hope I'm not wrong.

Other Thoughts: I purchased two of these. This review is applicable to both.

CORSAIR 16GB Flash Survivor Ultra Rugged USB 2.0 Drive Model CMFUSBSRVR-16GB
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: It's big. It's sturdy as hell. You can attach it to your keychain (or whatever) from either side, so you have the option of having it removable from the cover or having the cover removed with the drive still attached, which is nice. It also came with a short USB extension cord, which comes in quite handy as you can imagine.

Cons: I'm getting a write speed average of only 1.05MB/s (in Windows Vista) (yes USB 2.0 mode), which I am quite disappointed with. I am accustomed to having write speeds in the neighborhood of 6MB/s and get this on my 2GB drives.

Other Thoughts: Maybe read/write speed is a known sacrifice with larger drive designs, but if so, I was not aware of it.
