CENTON DataStick Pro 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Grey) Model DSP32GB-001
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs You can do better 09/29/2014

This review is from: CENTON DataStick Pro 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Grey) Model DSP32GB-001

Pros: It looks nice, and seems very sturdy.

Cons: Pretty slow. Mine died after a month and a half.

Other Thoughts: Their (newer) USB 3.0 sticks are much faster. Mind you, the difference has nothing to do with USB: USB 2.0 is plenty fast to keep up with the newer ones. At least Centon didn't hassle me (unduly) to replace it; otherwise, it would have been 1 egg.

HooToo® HT-UH007 USB 3.0 HUB (4 Port, Bus-Powered, Built-in 1ft USB 3.0 Cable)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Fine inexpensive USB-3, NOT cheap. 02/03/2014

This review is from: HooToo® HT-UH007 USB 3.0 HUB (4 Port, Bus-Powered, Built-in 1ft USB 3.0 Cable)

Pros: Plenty of room around plugs.
Delivers USB-3 speeds.
Integrated cord (you can't lose).
Power indicator LED (blue, of course).

Cons: Integrated cord is fairly stiff.
Integrated cord only about a foot long.
No external power option (bus power only).

Other Thoughts: As long as you are OK with the cord and don't need a lot of current (you can't charge 2 high-draw devices at the same time, for example), it seems to be an excellent product.

These limitations are both mentioned in the short product description, so it's not fair to deduct an egg for them.

(If you DO need a lot of current, you'll need a hub with an external power supply that plugs into the wall.)

PNY Attaché 2 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD32GATT2-GE
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It's a flash drive. When it works, it holds 32 Gb (if you measure generously).

Cons: Mine died after about a month. (There are a lot of complaints about the PNY 128Gb Flash Drive dying, too.) NewEgg replaced it for me very quickly, but still.

Also, not terribly fast,

and no activity indicator (LED).

Old-fashioned separate cap; they act like being able to attach it to the other end (if you're not using the hanging hole) is a major feature. ?!?

Other Thoughts: The list of cons is a lot longer than the list of pros. No matter HOW cheap it is, be sure you're only using it for backup, so if it dies you won't be heartbroken.

I'm thinking there's a good reason why PNY reduced their warranty from lifetime to 1 year on flash drives.
