BYTECC BT-2000 USB to PS2 Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Most Work Flawlesly 08/02/2011

This review is from: BYTECC BT-2000 USB to PS2 Adapter

Pros: Works on both Windows and DOS. Nice looking.

Cons: One I bought doesn't work under DOS.

Other Thoughts: I bought four of these and they all work under Windows. I tested a couple of them with DOS, with a Microsoft wheel mouse and its DOS driver, and it works just fine. But another one doesn't. (I tested only two under DOS.) It's odd that it works under Windows but not DOS.

4 out of 5 eggs Correcting my Speed Mistake 01/17/2010

This review is from: SanDisk Cruzer Micro 16GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable/Black) Model SDCZ6-016G-A11

Pros: See Other thoughts.

Cons: See Other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: I just posted my review and realize I made one mistake in reporting the speed. I said that the read speed ranges from 10 to 15 MB/s. Actually it is more like 15 to 20 MB/s.

4 out of 5 eggs Buyers Need the Truth on Speed 01/17/2010

This review is from: SanDisk Cruzer Micro 16GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable/Black) Model SDCZ6-016G-A11

Pros: Low price, sturdy, reliable, fast read speed, decent write speed for large files (video, ISO), no cap to lose.

Cons: Annoying LED, very low write speed for small files.

(Lesson I learned: Be wary and double check when read/write speeds aren't specified for a flash drive.)

Other Thoughts: I've seen this same drive being sold for twice the price. My 4 eggs assumes you can buy it at the low end of the price range for 16 GB drives.

At first I was surprised that only a couple people mentioned the slow write speed, whereas others claimed a high write speed. Then I did a lot of testing and discovered that the speed depends upon the file size. Here are my approximate measurments for write speed:

20 MB Files: 5.5 MB/s
10 MB Files: 3.5 MB/s
2 MB Files: 2.0 MB/s
1 MB Files: 1.5 MB/s

So even photo files will be written slowly.

The read spead ranges from 10 to 15 MB/s, which is quite good.

Despite the slow write speed on small files, this drive got a high score on an independent comparison of several drives. Apparently because the data leveling is quite good and so the drive will last a long time.

You might find the bright, large, orange light annoying. I would if was right in front of me, like on a laptop. It's always on!
