Just bought myself one of these - Transcend JetDrive Go 300S - I got the 128GB Model and being the impatient person that I am, decided to pay for premium delivery from Amazon so it would get to Australia within 3 days. Arrived right on time so kudos to Amazon for keeping their delivery promise.
Have been playing around with it for a few hours now and my first impressions are that I am suitably impressed. Even though my iPhone 7 is already a 128GB, I find I've never got enough space so it's already about 70% full, which made me go looking for something to increase it.
It's fast, the IOS app for my iPhone and IPad is great and it doubles as a nice 128GB USB 3.1 Thumb Drive for my Windows PC as well. Should be great for quick compressed Backups of my iPhone when travelling without my PC too!
Once I've explored all the available options and tested the unit thoroughly, I plan to write a review about it as an article here.
Wondering if anyone else owns one of these (or similar) little gadgets? What do you think of them?
Further to my last post about testing a variety of browser performance statistics, I've recently discovered something that I think may be of use to other EE members.
When using Google Chrome as my default browser along with a variety of different AdBlocking extensions, visiting a page like this one: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/ returns the following error after about 36 ads have been blocked. All further reading is prevented unless the site is whitelisted.
However, visiting the same page with the Brave Browser I can view the site and read any articles on there without ads and without triggering the Ad Blocker warning.
The site (along with a few others I've stumbled across) does not appear to recognize the built-in AdBlocker in Brave. How long that will remain to be the case I'm not sure.
I've also confirmed (from my own tests) that Brave is by far the quickest browser to use on Social Media sites like Facebook. Nowhere near the number of slowdowns that I experience with Google Chrome (or other browsers) that I've tested so far.
Further, using this extension (credit to McKnife for finding it) you can also leave Google Chrome as the default browser if you want to, yet easily send links to the Brave browser when needed. Works a treat here :)
I hope this little tidbit of information helps you out.
