Vantec NexStar TX 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Black metal case good for heat dissipation. Looks good. Includes screwdriver.

Cons: I had two of these I bought years ago. I recently removed a 500gb mechanical WD drive when I swapped in a SSD. Initially it seemed to work right, but when I tried to copy 50 gb of data off my hard drive, the USB case would disconnect from my PC running Windows. Tried this on two PC's with same results. I had a second identical Vantec, installed my HD into it, and had the same problem.

I gave up and installed the HD directly to my motherboard's SATA connection. Had no problems. Installed this HD on to a Insten USB external, and ran the same test and had no problems.

Other Thoughts: The rubber cushions inside were too firm. After 2 weeks, the end of the case burst, breaking off the plastic retaining tab. It's going into the recycle bin today. Vantec is supposed to be a good brand, but not this model.

SanDisk 32GB  Cruzer Ultra Fit  USB 3.0 130MB/s Nano Flash Pen Thumb Drive CZ43
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs Very Fast in USB 2.0 and 3.0 08/06/2015

This review is from: SanDisk 32GB Cruzer Ultra Fit USB 3.0 130MB/s Nano Flash Pen Thumb Drive CZ43

Pros: Very fast in Crystal Disk Mark 4.0.3 64 bit: tested on my MSI motherboard:

USB 2.0
Sequential R/W: 42.0 / 28.6 MB/s

USB 3.0
Sequential R/W: 131.2 / 45.4 MB/s

Small size is great for semi-permanent install on my notebook or Chromebook. Cheap for the size and speed.at this price level.

Cons: Small size, I'm going to lose it someday. Bought from another vendor.

Other Thoughts: I'm going to use this for Linux OS drive running on an old X200s Thinkpad. Not sure if it has wear leveling, but hopefully it will last me a year. Sandisks have great reputations in Rasberry Pi machines as the OS media.

This review is from: Corsair Force Series 3 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CSSD-F120GB3A-BK

Pros: Currently used as a boot/system drive for a laptop. I've install multiple OS's on this baby already and have experienced no unusual problems yet.

Cons: Maybe not so quick as newer drives, but the laptop I have is pretty old anyway.
