Transcend 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Should be rugged, unlike the last two disks it replaces in my automotive application.

Cons: While copying my music collection to this disk, the highest speed I have seen is about 600 kBps. It is taking 10-15 seconds per file for <5MB files.

Other Thoughts: The computer boots quickly and seems to operate with generally low latency, indicating that this disk has a problem primarily with write speed. I'm hoping that there is a way to tweak this setup to get better performance, but it isn't looking promising.

3Dconnexion 3DX-700026 Gray/Black 15 Buttons USB Optical SpaceExplorer
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Excellent functionality, very ergonomic.

Cons: I have liked it alot, save for a few durability issues:

After the first 3 months or so, the soft rubber coating covering the black surfaces started to peel off. Not a big deal since I finished the job and just scraped the rest off, but it was somewhat nicer with the coating.

After the first 6 months, the unit started to loose it's calibration periodically. Now, about once daily I have to open the control panel and press "calibrate" to stop it from rotating my view continuosly. Another minor annoyance.

Other than that, I like the functionality of this little guy.
