This review is from: Samsung 128GB BAR (Metal) USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Speed Up to 130MB/s (MUF-128BA/AM)
Pros: It is small, it is fast, well priced, has a very sleek look and has no issues on any system I have used it on so far
Cons: It is small, very small. I got the one in brushed looks like Stainless. It is so slick and so small, that when lying flat on the desk, it is hard to pick up with my large fingers. It will also easily slip out of your fingers when you do manage to pick it up
Other Thoughts: Overall it is very nice. One can add a key chain or the like to make it easier to handle but also that adds weight and detracts from its sleek look. Nice product with a minor catch 22. They could have put some knurling on one end or the other, or possibly on the sides to make it easier to pick up, still would look great.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TuneUp + AVG Anti-Virus 1 User For System Builder
Pros: Good Software
Cons: If this is OEM system builder software, and from what I know about this kind of stuff, keep in mind that that is exactly what it is, System builder software, making what you are getting nothing more then trial versions of both software, not full one year or longer subscriptions. Expect 60 to 90 days.
Other Thoughts: Thinking about it, why would you pay for software you can download for free and transfer to a new build, thus not risking it in any way to unprotected contact with the internet.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Patriot Pyro 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PP120GS25SSDR
Pros: It is a solid State drive, Beyond that none
Cons: As others have stated, the read/write speeds don't even come close to what the Manufacture claims. Even after making sure I had all the proper updates for my machine and updating the firmware from Patriot website, I get at best 200/192 read/write with this drive using full SATAIII with proper cables in AHCI mode. Can’t send it back, which I would if I could.
Other Thoughts: Although it is faster than my WD Blacks, by a bit less then a quarter margin, it is very disappointing considering other SSD drives seem to almost meet the 600 mark. I could not in good conscience recommend this drive to anyoneREAD FULL REVIEW
