This review is from: SanDisk Extreme 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ80-032G-A75
Pros: 11 out of 10. 180/110MB read/write with ATTO Disk Benchmark. SanDisk states up to 190MB/s read and 110MB/s write and my scores are right in line with that! I installed a Windows 7 .iso to the drive to boot from and I'm about to test an install to an SSD. I am about to be amazed. Also, I booted a live Linux .iso in 45ish seconds, as if it were installed on a HDD. The work it performs in USB 2.0 slots is great too! Caps everything at 35/35MB read/write. The USB lever switch is solid feeling and feels "the 4-letter word for risque" when I use it. I. Love. This. Drive.
Cons: Why it didn't come with a lanyard is beyond me. Really, just throw one in haha. I have a lanyard for it though. The drive is too awesome to drop an Egg. It deserves every Egg. Sandisk did very well.
Other Thoughts: I don't use the 2GB of Cloud storage that comes with the purchase of the drive. Seriously SanDisk should just include a lanyard instead if you ask me. :) Also I have not used the encryption feature and probably won't. But seems like a good feature nevertheless.
Shipping from Newegg this time took a while but I patiently waited for this gem. Please don't hesitate, just buy the drive!
The formatted capacity is 29.7GB.
This review is from: Rosewill RCDV-11011 - 1.6-Foot (50 cm) SATA III Cable with Locking Latch
Pros: These cables are great! Super thin, flexible, airflow is good and they are sturdy. I was thrilled when I got the package and saw how thin SATA cables have gotten. However, then I realized other cable models are still the stiff regular SATA cables.
Cons: No complaints here, 5-star product. I bought 4.
Other Thoughts: I am confident in my purchase of the Rosewill SATA III cables, you should be too!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Obviously large space. Quick. Quiet.
Cons: After a month, click-click-click drive failed in Windows Disk Management. -- Came alive again! -- Another few weeks, click-click-click, drive was failing, then came alive again. Passed all SeaTools long tests.
Other Thoughts: Buy 2. Have a backup.READ FULL REVIEW
