EVGA GeForce 9800 GT DirectX 10 01G-P3-N981-TR 1GB 256-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Price vs. performance. It's shorter than the GTX200 series cards, but still a relatively long card as some have pointed out. Go to EVGA's web site for full specs. Because of the RAID disks in my system, the long GTX series won't fit (sigh), but this one does.

Cons: NONE. Yes it has a fan. Unless your system is fanless, you won't notice any fan noise from this card. Besides, don't most gamers use headphones anyways?

Other Thoughts: My wife liked the cool EVGA stylized "E" logos in the sheet metal and told me this was the one she wanted to get me. Nothing says "I love you" better than getting a new Nvidia graphics card for your birthday! :-)

Kingston DataTraveler Vault - Privacy Edition 8GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) 256bit AES Encryption Model DTVP/8GB
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: If you want everything AES encrypted on your USB drive, this one is for you. Easy to use - everything loads directly from USB drive (i.e. no CD).

Cons: Read speed is fast. Write speed a little disappointing.
For 201 MB consisting of 477 files in 39 folders: Reads took 10 sec = 20 MB/sec. Writes took 70 sec = 2.8 MB/sec. For my old 512 Mbyte Corsair USB this took 10 sec read and 35 sec write (so writes about 2X Kingston DTV = 5.6 MB/sec)

Other Thoughts: Nice waterproof aluminum case with cap that clips on the end. Approved by my company's IT for proprietary info. I like everything about this USB drive, except the write speed - if only it was closer to the 10 MB/sec advertised. Perhaps with larger files it would be faster.

2 out of 5 eggs 8Gbyte but slow 01/10/2009

This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model CMFUSB2.0-8GB

Pros: Has 8 Gbytes and is cheap - with free shipping.

Cons: Very slow. I read Newegg reviews that it's only 7 Mbyte/sec write. I have an old 512 Mbyte Corsair stick that's about 6-7 MB/s so I figured that's fine (sure there are drives that hit 10-15 Mbyte/s write). WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT! Trying to back up a 200 Mbyte directory with 486 files takes only 30 sec on the old 512 Mbyte drive, BUT IT TAKES NEARLY 2 MINUTES ON THIS 8 GB DRIVE. So we are talking of a write speed of about 100 sec for 200MB or ** 2 MB/sec **. Suprisingly the read speed is lightning fast to restore the same 200MB back to the hard drive takes only 5 sec! or 40MB/sec read. Luckily I found a friend who bought it from me for $10. Now I need to get the rebate.

Other Thoughts: Rubber case makes a good lint collector :-)
Try it and see. :-)
