Hama Probo Review
The Hama Probo has an under the average performance in terms of sequential read speed for a USB 3.0 drive. Itâ€™s sliding cap makes it an easy to use and slick device, however just as weâ€™ve seen before, it does not protect from contaminants and in a dust ridden environment it could not last a year. But I doubt anyone would use this in a mill or something similar
As I was saying, the sequential goes as high up as 70 mbps with a read of 35 mbps which means youâ€™d be getting good value for your money, seeing how the device is priced at $18 . This makes it go ( in terms of value ), above most devices which are under the average as Â USB 3.0.
The Hama Probo 4k tests have revealed it to be one of the weakest tested : it only goes 0.1 mbps in write, which means youâ€™re going to be waiting ages for your picture files to upload. The read is at 5 mbps, meaning youâ€™ll get to see them slightly faster.
It seems flimsy in design ( I actually got the impression something was moving inside it when I shook it ) and it really makes me want to believe it is a safe device to purchase, not requiring my using the warranty every 2-3 months.
