This review is from: Corsair 64GB Voyager Slider USB 3.0 Flash Drive (CMFSL3B-64GB)
Pros: -cant really say anything positive about a drive that loses data
Cons: speeds were fairly mediocre for a usb 3.0 drive. but i was more concerned with capacity than speed so it wasnt a big problem.
A little over a year after purchase i started having problems accessing certain folders. for the first minute or so after plugging in, the drive would behave as though nothing is wrong. it reports the correct size (which was about 52 GB used, btw) and even now, i can run a disk check and windows reports no errors. once i attempt to access many of the folders beyond the top directory, however, it starts to hang. after that, windows throws an error saying that the location does not exist, or if i attempt to run the disk check, windows says it cant continue because it is unable to access the drive. it also shows the drive as having 0 diskspace at this point. then if i unplug for about 1 minute, then plug it back in, its back to acting as though nothing is wrong, showing the top directories and sizes just fine. was only able to copy about 6 GB off of it, the remaining 46 GB has apparently been lost. the drive fails every time i attempt to access or copy any of the remaining folders.
Other Thoughts: fortunately for me, all of the data that was lost was redundant (afaik). that doesnt excuse the failure though. still, this is the first time ive ever had a flash drive fail on me. dont think ill be buying anymore drives from this product line.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Sabrent USB-GAMEKIT Pack of Two Twelve-Button USB 2.0 Game Controllers for PC
Pros: -6 face buttons have become rare and hard to find in modern pc controllers, but it is my preference.
-a lot like ps2 contollers. they basically took the shell of a ps2 controller and redesigned the right face to support 6 buttons.
-works great for a variety of emulators, including n64.
-long cable with no worries about battery life.
Cons: -no rumble.
-not compatible with most modern games out of the box. (this is actually more microsofts fault though).
-thanks to microsoft, most modern controller based pc games are designed for an x-box controller only and will not assign buttons correctly on anything else.
Other Thoughts: -fortunately, people have created xbox 360 controller emulators that, when used properly, make the vast majority of games work just fine.
-i've successfully been able to use these with most of my controller based steam games using the x360ce controller emulator.
Pros: only minimal effort required to get these to work at their rated speed. been working fine for 3 years. very stable. not had any memory problems the whole time.
Cons: nothing specifically related to the ram itself. see other thoughts
Other Thoughts: it might be different now but when i got these most motherboards and processors would default to 1600 or lower for any higher speed ram, so i did have to manually set them up in the bios, both the frequency and timings. didn't have any trouble making them work at rated specs though; running dual channel at 1866MHz 9-10-9-28.
other relevant system specs:
gigabyte ga-970a-d3 (rev 1.4)
amd am3+ fx-4100 quad core; OC @ 4GHz
amd radeon hd 7790 1GB GDDR5
