Pros: Fast read/writes. Reliable. I've used Corsair SSDs in all six of our (wife and myself) PCs since the early days of SSDs and have yet to have one fail. I've retired drives through size and speed upgrades, but no failures.
Cons: None. See below.
Other Thoughts: I use refurb SSDs for the second (data) storage drives in PCs, not the boot disk (software) drive. All data is backed up to external storage. By using SSDs for both the boot drive and the secondary (scratch) working drive, I get excellent overall performance with minimal worry of data loss through failure.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Tiny. Setup is pretty straight forward -- simple if you're familiar with Win 8X. Silent. Excellent HTPC. Plays BD disks and 1920x1080 MP4s across LAN without hiccups using PowerDVD.
Cons: It does get a little warm, but that's to be expected. Have not had any problems, even after 5+ hours of continuous HD playback. Length of cable on AC converter is a bit short...
Other Thoughts: Definitely worth the money.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: PNY 128GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive (P-FD128TBOP-GE)
Pros: Nice small format and no cap to lose.
Cons: Poor read/write speed. When testing the actual sustained data throughput using 5-10 GB MP4 and M2TS files, this device averages 35 MBps write and 42 MBps read speeds (NTFS format). This places this device into the category of being only slightly faster than a good USB 2 flash drive.
Other Thoughts: Using this test method, I get near stated throughput from my Lexar and Corsair fast USB 3 flash drives, but their price is higher as well. This drive is inexpensive and performs like it. If PNY had rated the speed more accurately to it's actual sustain data throughput, it could deserve a 5-star review. As it stands, it's at best a 3-star.READ FULL REVIEW
