This review is from: Silicon Power 128GB Blaze B05 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SP128GBUF3B05V1K)
Pros: This is a sleek flash drive, worked great out of the box, and I appreciate the cap-free design since there’s no cap to lose. It works well and provides a large amount of storage capacity on the cheap. The USB 3.0 support makes a good modern flash drive to choose. The read speeds are pretty good, benchmarking at an average read rate of 40.3MB/s on my computer.
Cons: The write rate is a bit disappointing, benchmarking at only 5.1MB/s average write rate on my computer. While certainly usable, it would take at least 7 hours to fill the flash drive at this write speed.
Other Thoughts: The design of the drive is upside down in my opinion, usually when I own a capless flash drive the slider is on the “top” of the USB port, but on this one it is on the “bottom” side and I feel like I’m plugging it in upside down as a result.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This SSD performed very well for me, I saw an average read rate of 280.2MB/s and average write rate of 163.7MB/s on my benchmark tests. The SSD seems to pull a faster write rate for awhile due to a write cache, writing at over 260MB/s for about 40% of my benchmark period, then dropping to around 85MB/s.
Cons: I haven’t found anything negative to say about this SSD, I am hoping for longevity and this may encourage me to check out other Silicon Power products in the future.
Other Thoughts: Even at its lowest write speed, this SSD is still faster than a traditional hard drive by far. SSD’s are a great way to provide a performance boost for your computer by reducing the amount of time spent waiting for reading and writing of files. I have personally been switching everything except my largest storage over to SSD’s to enjoy the speed benefits. Seeing the positive performance of this Silicon Power drive at a very low price point, I may buy some more SSD’s from them in the near future.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I like the appearance of this Oil diffuser. It looks like a Genie bottle and is very colorful when it is lit up. It is very quiet, lights up the room in pretty colors, and disperses the fragrances throughout the room. It lasts for around 4 hours with continued steam.
Cons: The unit is white and the cord is black. It would have a much nicer look if the cord was white. I would hesitate using the unit around small children or pets, as it does not seal and if it was knocked off the counter, it would spill. It is a cool mist, so no one would get burned, but I feel my cat could easily knock it down.
Other Thoughts: I have never owned an essential oil diffuser and was not that familiar with how they work. When it arrived, I had to go out and purchase essential oil to use the diffuser. Since I have never owned one, I wasn’t sure where to buy the oil or what type of oil to use. The directions state: “Use only water and essential oil in the water reservoir”, but the next line says “Do not use any other additives -e.g. inhalants, synthetic fragrances, essential oils or aroma concentrates – that are not intended for aroma diffusers.” Not being familiar with oil diffusers I found this confusing. I went on the Internet and searched for something to put in it. I found some essential oils, but quite frankly, I am not sure if they are the right oils. It would be nice if they would have included a sample oil so I could start using the unit the moment it arrived.READ FULL REVIEW
