The Nexus fan controller has a history of earning a high rating from tech sites so should this review's outcome be any different? The final score can change and for some beauty is in the eye of the beholder and for others it may just miss the perfect mark. It's shocking to learn that the Nexus doesn't "blow away" the competition.
I remember back a few years ago, when I read a review on the OCZ Gladiator and because of the review I picked it up for my 1 GHz @ 1.3 GHZ system that I still use today as my main box. I still use this system to surf the web, write reviews, and develop web pages. In the past few years my ears have gotten tuned to that 7500RPM Delta that the OCZ Gladiator came with, but I have to admit that it gets annoying at times. When OCZ gave me the chance to review the Gladiator II, I jumped on it.
I was quite late in reviewing the SanDisk Cruzer, and with that said, I have to admit that I knew about this very product we are reviewing today for some time now. As was stated many times in past with other reviewed product from PenDriveUSA, their chipsets and solutions are home-grown; none of what lays on the inside of the USB Flash drive is in fact a copy-cat from another manufacturer or re-licensed for use. The products – inside and out – are designed, engineered, and manufactured by PenDrive, and it is in fact the other way around; other firms license the use of their solutions. Like SanDisk and their Cruzer.
