Silicon Power Jewel J10 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive @ NikKTech
Up until recently the only high performance USB 3.0 compatible flash drives in the market where either average or quite large in size making it somewhat difficult to carry around and especially on a keychain. Personally I've always carried a USB flash drive on my keychain so i know firsthand how much of a role size plays when choosing the right one for the job so although performance is crucial for me i have to admit that size is even more important. Lately however things have changes so quite a few manufacturers including Kingston and Patriot have begun releasing very small USB 3.0 drives with very good performance levels. Silicon Power is one of those manufacturers that never falls behind in new things so it was just a matter of time really before they released their own tiny USB 3.0 drive and so today we will be taking a look at the Jewel J10 32GB model.

At the first glance of the DA-F60, we can see that the woven textile cover cloaks the wireless speaker. This cover is primarily used to protect the underlying metal grill. As we continue to tour around the elaborate and almost luxurious wireless speaker, we can see a Hi-Fi Dial, which is used for adjusting the volume, as well as the mute, function and bass buttons. The function button can be used to enter the DA-F60 into pairing mode, if it is not already connected to your smartphone or mobile device. The base button will dramatically increase the amount of bass that will be pumped out of this little speaker. Finally, at the bottom of this side of the DA-F60 you will find the power button.

The overall look and feel of the DataTraveler Mini 3.0 is exceptional. It was hard to put into words how light this USB drive actually is. To put it in perspective, we placed the DataTraveler Mini 3.0 on a ordinary kitchen scale, which demonstrated that this drive only weighs 0.10 ounces. It truly is unbelievable how light this drive feels, but whether that makes it prone to being lost is another story.

There is nothing more frustrating than buying a tech product that has been reported as being the best and finding out that there are some serious concerns with its operation. As a journalist, it is much the same where we analyze tech gear and, when things just don't seem right, seek published reports to see if we are doing something wrong. It is very uncomforting when the majority of published reports claim this product to be the best, yet we find serious concerns in its operation. Such is the case with the Logitech Harmony Ultimate that we are providing a user review on today.
The underlying cause of the reviewing problem is actually twofold, the first being that most published reports on products are conducted after minimal use, and the second of course being that the product is being retained post review. The first we met head on a few years back with an ultrabook (http://technologyx.us7.list-manage2.com/track/click?u=3d9b6193ffd32dd60e84fc74b&id=6ce928d9b9&e=312ec141fb) that was touted as possibly the best, yet its Wi-Fi didn't work outside of the office. I remember the frustration of taking this system to Taiwan and getting absolutely no reception the entire trip. The ultra was useless. The other difficulty is with product retention that is, in most cases, unavoidable as resources retain their reviewers through that retention.
