Pros: This is one fast puppy! I get up to 90+ MB/s read speed and up to 51+ MB/s write speed (slightly better than advertised) using NTFS format and ATTO Disk Benchmark. The speed with small files is exceptional. The reliability is very good, and I have not experienced any problems with formatting, recognizing the card, or bad sectors. This is a great deal and tough to beat!
Other Thoughts: I use this in both my camera (great for high res pictures and HD video) and my laptop as a ReadyBoost device (32 GB is the most that can be used so far under Windows 8.1). Hopefully soon the super high end 100+ MB/s cards will fall in price enough to make them more affordable.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Tek Republic TUH-3400 Aluminum USB 3.0 4 Port Hub with 3A Power Adapter
Pros: - Solid metal case
- Powered or unpowered (bus only)
- Plug-and-play (no drivers needed)
- Hot swappable
- Cool power LED and port activity lights
- Long 3' cable
- Solid power supply
Other Thoughts: This is a solid, portable, and fast hub that is perfect for my laptop with a limited number of USB 3.0 ports. I used to use separate bus powered and externally powered USB 2.0 hubs, depending on my need, so having one that can do both is really handy. The LEDs and lights are professional looking and not overly distracting. I highly recommend this hub!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ADATA 64GB UV128 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (AUV128-64G-RBE)
Pros: This was a good buy on sale. The capacity and speed are very good, and are very close to the advertised specs. It is attractive, capless, and has a strap hole.
Cons: The outer part and strap hole are made of plastic. I prefer an all metal composition, which the more expensive version has, but I did not like the larger physical size of the more expensive one (too bulky). The actual size was 63.75 GB, where 1 GB = 1E9 bytes, so it was just a tad short of the advertised size.
Other Thoughts: I ran USBDeview for my x64 system using a USB 3.0 port and default allocation size, and here are the results:
exFAT (default) format with using USB 3.0 port:
Read: 75 MB/sec
Write: 89 mb/sec
NTFS format using USB 3.0 port:
Read: 74 MB/sec
Write: 15 MB/sec
exFAT (default) format using USB 2.0 port:
Read: 32 MB/sec
Write: 24 mb/sec
NTFS format using USB 2.0 port:
Read: 31 MB/sec
Write: 13 MB/sec
This thing rocks in exFAT format with USB 3.0! Even using USB 2.0, the speed is still very good. I would not use NTFS format with this one, which is very slow.
