This review is from: HitLights RGB Multicolor Changing SMD5050 LED Light Strip Kit - 150 LEDs, 16.4 Ft Roll, Cut to Length, Includes 60W Adapter and 44 Key Controller - Color Changing, 149 Lumens per foot
Pros: Cute. I installed it as an under-cabinet light in the kitchen, using the white-light only mode. It was nice for that. I had no use for the various flashing modes, except for initial entertainment.
Cons: Failed quickly. First it wouldn't turn on/off easily, then it died completely.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: low power, good light output
Cons: Two out of three are dead already. So much for the 25,000hr lifetimeREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: HP x755w 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD128HP755-GE
Pros: When new, the read and write rates for this drive were very high. Crystal Disk Mark gives ~200MB/s and ~130MB/s for sequential reads and writes respectively.
Cons: After writing to the drive a few times, the write performance drops dramatically to less than ~20MB/s. Even the rate for deleting files drops, down to ~10/s from the initial value of hundreds/sec.
The read rate remains high, making this drive good for a write once, read mostly drive. But that wasn't what I want in a thumb drive. Back to my Kingston thumb drives.
Other Thoughts: Reformating the drive restores its performance, but takes forever.READ FULL REVIEW
