This review is from: Corsair 128GB Voyager Slider USB 3.0 Flash Drive (CMFSL3B-128GB)
Pros: Looks cool and has a great storage capacity.
Cons: Ordered this while it was on sale and thought it would be great since I've had good products from Corsair. It worked for like a few minutes, then when transfering files over to the drive it died. Windows detected 0 bytes on the usb slider, and a formatting window kept popping up. I got an RMA from Newegg and after getting the new usb slider the same thing happened, but this time it didn't even last long enough to transfer anything. Total garbage in my opinion.
Other Thoughts: Perhaps I got unlucky or the batch that Newegg had was bad. Either way I was saddened that this item did not work. Newegg was easy to work with and refunded me my money. Just so that your wondering if it was my computer, I tried the stick on two other computers in the house. The results were the same for both usb sliders. If your on the fence about this item I would say don't risk it and go with something else.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MSI GeForce GTX 980TI GAMING 6G LE
Pros: Easily overclocked and out performs the more expensive cards out there in this line. The fans are quiet when pushed to the max, and are even quieter than the Evga 980gtx. Maxes out all games I have thrown at it, even a heavily modded Skyrim. Metal gear solid looks stunning maxed out and keeps good framerates especially when the card is overclocked.
Cons: None that I can think of other than I should of ordered two when they were on sale.
Other Thoughts: The decision to buy this over other models was a no brainer for me especially since it can be overlocked higher than the more expensive versions whether it be this line or any other. I upgraded from a gtx 980 mainly because I wanted more vram due to running two 32 inch 2560x1600 monitors. I will be ordering another and then after making sure they both overclock well will be adding them to my water cooled loop system.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Lots of space, and was cheaper than getting a bare drive. Easty to remove froom casing. Ran several checks with seagate tools to ensure the drive was good (bought two).
Cons: Drive isn't that great at moving large file sizes. Though I knew this going in, I was just amazed at how slow it is, like 410 GB @ 30 MB a second, however it started out fast. So move smaller file sizes.
Other Thoughts: Other than the drive being a bit slow when moving large file sizes, it is a great drive. Now I just hope they hold up as long as my other drives. I might get two more just to back these puppies up, though I will wait for a sale again.READ FULL REVIEW
