Silicon Power Blaze B30 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SP128GBUF3B30V1K
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs UFD_Recover_Tool is a must have 06/29/2015

This review is from: Silicon Power Blaze B30 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SP128GBUF3B30V1K

Pros: Swiveling metal guard acts as a heat sink, LED is not too bright, fastish contiguous USB3 reads/writes with NTFS.
Read speeds (contig blocks); 180 MB/s
Write speeds (contig blocks): 50-60 MB/s
Bigger than 100GB

Cons: Swiveling metal guard is required to act as a heat sink - very slow writing when writing many small files (like MP3s): 1-3 MB/s, even when NTFS format. Size "128GB" is exaggerated. Usable size after formatting is closer to 108GB - this is a larger difference than accounted for by the "1 GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes" convention.
Gets very hot when bricked - OS keeps trying to read until device is removed from USB port (or recovery tool is run)

Other Thoughts: UFD_Recover_Tool is a must have - while reformatting for NTFS, was eventually told "couldn't write to device" and ended up with a very hot brick. After reading comments here, went to Silicon Power's site and downloaded the recovery tool. Tool worked, recovered USB device, was able to format / reformat / read / write.

Coboc EPS8EX-8 8
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Cheap, Continuity OK, "Motherboard side" connector splits from single 8pin to dual 4 pin as necessary

Cons: Cable is not 8 inches long. Description includes lengths of the connectors (1 inch at each end).

Conductors, themselves, could be one size wider (awg).

Other Thoughts: If you're using this extension cable to run CPU 12V from a power supply "below" the mobo, running the cable "behind" the motherboard tray, "over the top" of the tray (or through a hole), and then to a CPU +12V connector along the top of the mobo, then beware. The cable length between connector ends is only 6 inches long. Since the cable is running at a 90 degree angle with the end connector (plugged into mobo), that last inch of so called length does not count.

If you need 8 inches, you probably need to order two of these and daisy chain them together. Good thing they're cheap.

SeaSonic M12II 620 Bronze 620W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cheap
Supplies 600W
Not too loud

Cons: Active PFC fried operating off of "Modified Sine Wave" UPS

Other Thoughts: PSU did not fry when computer was asleep during power interruption/UPS switchover. However, with computer running under load, loss of AC power / switchover to UPS caused PSU to FRY (smoke was emitted).

Am switching both PSU (gotta get a new one, anyway) and UPS (to "pure sine wave")
