Good USB 3.0 Performance for Price
Pros: - Crystal Disk Mark 3.03x64 Read 123.4 / Write 41.27 as last checked....which is about what I expected. - Solid construction with features as noted by other reviewers - Lifetime limited warranty
Cons: Nothing noted.
Overall Review: I noticed that Silicon Power does have a premium USB 3.0 flash drive line with higher speeds....but it is suitably priced at higher prices. The Blaze B30 USB 3.0 flash drive may not be the fastest flash drive available, but the performance for the price paid is a solid value!
Worked Great for All of 47 days
Pros: This drive did it ALL....and worked great...for all of 47 days from my Newegg.com invoice date. The price was great as I remember paying about 10x the price years back for a Plextor drive which had fewer features.
Cons: It died without heavy use as I burned maybe a 1/2 dozen data DVD+-R's, and a few CD-R's. No DVD movie viewing, etc.
Fulfills All Expectation of Product Desciption
Pros: PC TEST (Windows 10 - Stereo Mode): Great Sound...very comfortable (for a 6 hr day test...lite in weight...just tight enough on the ears. ANDROID SMART PHONE TEST: Good sound, microphone worked well used in home office.
Cons: No Cons...no problems for my personal use. COMMENT ON OTHER POSTED CONS: Philips SHB3075BK BASS+ is NOT MADE of metal, but is not fragile with normal use...put on...use for hours...take off...store in safe place. This headset will not fall apart by itself. The construction seems very precise and I wouldn't want to drop test these headphones.
Overall Review: Summary: I got what I expected at a reasonable price. It is Bluetooth only...as clearly stated in the specs....and there are other Philip products which have additional features including a 3.5mm option if desired.
Great Bargain at my daily special purchase price of under $150.00
Pros: An Intel Core i5 for a desktop computer for under $150.00 was a bargain I couldn't pass up when featured as a Newegg.com daily special! ....and with Windows 10 Pro 64-bit + 1 TB HDD yet!
Cons: There were some shortcomings with the configuration...but starting with the low base price of $150, it was easy to upgrade and add other components without spending a lot of money. So, I purchased the HP 512MB graphics for this computer (used) and monitor connecting DVI-D cable; and purchased new a USB 3.0 PCI-Express card & 500GB WD Black HDD to replace the 1 TB drive supplied (manufactured in Dec 2009). (The 1 TB drive is now used for archival storage and is used with a USB 3.0 adapter cable as needed.) The memory could be upgraded to 32 GB, but the included 4 GB is OK for my daily use. Total upgrade cost was under $100.
Overall Review: THE MATH: $150 (base price for the refurbished computer) + $100 for upgrades = $250 for an Intel Core i5 desktop computer with a New WD 500GB Black drive (5 yr warranty), USB 3.0 ports, and dual monitor capable 512MB graphics card.
Compact ...but does the job well.
Pros: I am now have 4 - USB 3.0 connections from the single USB 3.0 port on my laptop...and it works as advertised. I have attached at one line a 2TB exterior hard drive (via USB 3.0 adapter), two USB 3.0 thumb drives (32GB & 64GB), and have moved files of various size between the laptop and the different drives.
Cons: This USB 3.0 hub does get (very) warm with multiple drives (see Pros above) attracted and after moving a number of files, but I believe this to be normal.
Overall Review: Good value from a trust brand!
