This review is from: Logitech K750 Black USB RF Wireless Slim solar-powered Keyboard
Pros: Very nice. The top appears to be made of glass, so, even though it is a low profile, the keyboard has nice weight and is rigid. This was purchased (along with a Logitech m705 Marathon Mouse) for our conference room in order to hide the PC. The PC is 20+ feet away and in a cabinet. The wireless mouse/keyboard work perfectly. (BTW: The PC is also using WiFi for LAN connectivity and all works well.)
It looks really nice and no battery maintenance is a strong plus. I wish there was a matching style solar mouse.
We normally have the room lights off except when in use, then lights are normally at a lower level. Still plenty of power for the keyboard.
Cons: There is a thumb print on the inside of the glass covering one of the solar cells. It is not terribly noticeable, but still there, none the less. Since it appears to be bonded together, there is no way to clean it.
This is the only reason for 4 Eggs instead of 5.
Other Thoughts: It's a bit expensive compared to an ordinary wifi kb/mouse, but not prohibitive. The looks make up for this in my opinion.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Looks nice, great packaging.
Cons: USB 3 connections is UNUSABLE as it drops and reinserts every 20-30 seconds. USB 2 is much better but still has occasional drops.
My machine is a very recent model Dell Optiplex 9010 purchased in June 2012. The built-in USB3 shows to be Intel USB3 Extensible Controller and Host.
Thermaltake makes great stuff, but it appears that the controller selected for this unit has problems. I feel for them but I'm still left with a door stop with a pretty, blinky blue light.
Other Thoughts: It is highly likely that firmware updates would fix this problem, but I have no idea how long (if ever) that will happen.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Voyager 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFVY3S-64GB
Pros: Please read ALL of this review - This is NOT a complaint, but you need to be aware of it.
Very fast read speed.
Corsair Tech Support was great even after 4 RMA's (however, they refused to issue a cash refund since the original NewEgg Warranty was only 30 days and it first failed at 50 days)
Works great - BUT....
DON'T BEND THIS DEVICE !
DON'T CARRY THIS IN YOUR POCKET !
You have been warned !
Cons: Not a huge issue, but slower on writes than some other USB3 drives and all of the Voyager line is physically larger when compared to many other similar devices. (2 times the size of a cheap pocket flash drive and 3 times the size of one of the capless folding type drives.)
MAJOR ISSUE - I had to RMA FOUR of these in less than 60 days use each. The drive is fine... the problem is that the case is fairly large and is SOFT RUBBER. If you put this in your pocket, the device will flex and crack the circuit board and you will be unable to access anything on the drive.
I had some serious discussions with Corsair Support in which they denied any logic flaws... But, if you look online, there are quite a number of complaints on the entire line of drives as well as another brand with a similar soft rubber case. With this many failures, I was CERTAIN that there was a problem.
Other Thoughts: After so many problems, I thought it was a chip or manufacturing problem until I ran across a comment where the user was able to get back into the drive by squeezing the casing really hard and someone else suggested "Reflowing" the device. That's when I realized the real issue was that there is NOT a rigid casing inside the rubber.
When I got my 5th RMA, I used the device as a FlashCache on my PC and it has been GREAT.
So - Great drive - but DON'T BEND IT !
