Corsair 16GB Voyager Mini USB 3.0 Flash Drive (CMFMINI3-16GB)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs What a joke 04/22/2014

This review is from: Corsair 16GB Voyager Mini USB 3.0 Flash Drive (CMFMINI3-16GB)

Pros: -It holds data
-It's small

Cons: -No protection for when it's in your pocket, even though it's made to be on a keychain. Bends too easily, making the keychain idea a horrible one
-It's horribly slow. Actually slower than a 3 year old Toshiba 16GB USB2 drive I have.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my truck, just for music. Unfortunately, my truck really doesn't like it, nor does my wife's BMW. Works fine on the computer, but that's about it. I was hoping for USB 3 write speeds, but the USB3 interface is completely pointless since it will hardly write at USB 2 speeds. I've gone back to my old USB stick, and will keep this for other tasks.

Buy something else, seriously.

Seagate Constellation ES ST500NM0011 500GB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It's a hard drive

Cons: Slow slow slow. No faster than a 4 year old SATA II hard drive. Even connected to a brand new machine with SATA III, it performs no better than a SATA II drive.

Other Thoughts: I regret purchasing this drive

ASUS P9X79 LE LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with USB BIOS

3 out of 5 eggs A bit peeved about this one 10/23/2013

This review is from: ASUS P9X79 LE LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with USB BIOS

Pros: High quality board that has what I need, for a great price

Cons: -No on-board speaker
-Too few SATA ports
-No 1394 (not that big of a deal)
-Contradictory documentation. The manual says one thing, and the quick start guide says another with the wrong pictures of the board.
-Quick start guide just said to place bios file on a USB stick, but that didn't work. Read the manual and you must rename the file. Why didn't ASUS just name the .cap file within the .zip file, what it should be named?
-No troubleshooting guide in user manual

Other Thoughts: Overall, a very nice board with a few limitations. Took me about 2 hours to get past the hurdles of upgrading the firmware to support the i7-4390k processor. The manual wasn't clear about the CPU LED that is on the board. It just says that if the CPU LED is lit, something is wrong with the CPU. This made me start examining for bent pins and other connectivity issues, rather than going straight to upgrading the BIOS. A little google research led me to the solution.
