CORSAIR Survivor Stealth 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFSS3-32GB

5 out of 5 eggs Tough as Nails Flash Drive 09/30/2012

This review is from: CORSAIR Survivor Stealth 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFSS3-32GB

Pros: USB 3.0 heavy duty mate black high quality (could not use a colorful metaphor) piece of machinery. I work as an IT professional in industrial atmospheres (plants, factories, construction) and this does the job.

I was afraid that it may to be large considering that I use an Ultrabook (Dell XPS), but it plugs right in without a problem. Speed is decent for a 32gig flash drive -- I avg around 20MB+. All and all not bad based on ruggedness, speed, and portability.

Cons: I really don't have any. The fact that it comes straight out of the packing without any bloatware (factory security junk (could not use colorful metaphor) -- it is indeed a nice product.

Other Thoughts: If you need a reliable, tough as nails product -- this is it!

DELL XPS XPS13-40002sLV 13.3-inch Ultrabook - Silver
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Top of the Line 08/22/2012

This review is from: DELL XPS XPS13-40002sLV 13.3-inch Ultrabook - Silver

Pros: Lets start by the fact that this is a 13.3 inch screen in a 12 inch body. The screen is wrapped in Gorilla Glass with hardly no bezel -- hence how they were able to crunch this into a smaller frame. A mix of carbon fiber, aluminum, and magnesium make up the structure of this beauty.

The touchpad is glass and there are rubber strips that go along the entire length of the bottom to prevent slippage and scratches to the carbon. The keyboard is back-lit and responsive and the keys are spaced nicely via a chicklet style.

I will not get into the specs considering they are provided.

This is one of the nicest Ultrabooks I used, and I used quite a few such as the Zenbook, and the Folio. The build quality is fantastic, and it looks very professional aka not a lot of "bling".

One more thing. . . it has a little button on the right next to the USB 3.0 port that allows you to check battery power without opening it up -- pretty cool.

Cons: Some of the problems I have with this unit is that it does not come with a USB to Ethernet converter, nor a mini display port to VGA -- the Zenbook comes with these. Since the keyboard area is black, it gets dirty and ugly quick, and there is some glare due to the Gorilla Glass. Other than that, It is a very nice machine.

Thermaltake WATER2.0 Pro Closed-Loop All In One Liquid CPU Cooler Dual 120mm PWM Fans 120x49mm Radiator CLW0216
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I have this CPU cooler running on my AMD FX 8150 that is overclocked to nice and stable 4.5GHz. Stress testing via Prime95 kept a cool 60-65c at 100% for a good hour. The reason I got this was because the stock cooler could not keep up and I wanted to mess with this processor.

The quality is very good for the price and the radiator is nice and thick, and the two fans keep the air flowing. I have this in a NZXT H2 case (very nice case by the way) and there is plenty of room even with an additional 140mm fan (mounted on the top of the case). The hoses are nice and flexible with no kinks. I find this very nice considering the Corsair closed loop systems are stiff and hard to manage in smaller mid-tower cases.

I hardly hear the fans running, but this could be due to the NXZT H2 case which is designed to reduce noise. All and all a great product!

Cons: I really have no complaints with this setup. The install is quick and easy and the instructions are easy to understand.
