ADATA DashDrive UV128 64GB Flash Drive Model AUV128-64G-RBE
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Good Buy 04/02/2014

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive UV128 64GB Flash Drive Model 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.

Keurig K45 Elite Brewing System with bonus 12-count K-Cup Variety Pack and Water Filter 20029
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: The ability to brew a single cup of coffee, rather than a full pot, is an excellent idea. Not being stuck with a lot of wasted coffee is a huge pro, plus each individual cup is freshly brewed. This appliance is about as simple to use as it gets. The power usage is low, and it is fairly fast.

Cons: The price is high, likely due to this being a somewhat unique new idea in the market. The K cups are also expensive, even on sale. Most of the components are plastic, like most appliances. At this price, everything should be made of metal and tempered glass -- stainless steel would be ideal. I noticed that on some of the newer versions, the handle is now made of metal. It loses an egg for the high price despite the use of plastic.

Other Thoughts: I got some reusable K cup style containers that can be filled with any coffee I want at a fraction of the price of the disposable K cups.

BELKIN BE112234-10 10 ft. 12 Outlets 3996 Joules Home/Office Surge Protector w/Phone/Ethernet/Coax Protection
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This surge protector has a long, thick cord with an angled plug (can fit in tight places), many well spaced outlets, protected/not grounded LEDs, covers for unused outlets, good warranty, cord management, phone/fax protection, LAN/ethernet protection, and cable protection. The response time to an electrical spike and EMI/RFI noise suppression are very good and useful in a noisy RF environment.

Cons: The case and many other components are made of plastic, like most surge protectors. I would rather pay a bit more for an all-metal case. If I could, I would take off half an egg for the liberal use of plastic.

Other Thoughts: This is a useful product, and basically protects everything electrical in a household. I bought two of these.
