    Willing to bet the slower is connecting at a slower usb protocol, perhaps usb2 vs. usb3 for the faster. I doubt it has anything to do with the drives themselves inside the enclosures.

    After reading the linked article, it appears that the PNY with a different controller is a match for the original. However the Kingston with slower ram is not a match. Other products, such as the...

    Too true. Mobility and convenience have crowded out power. The mobile devices have "enough" power to satisfy our needs.

    Try it with a different psu if you have another. If nothing changes, it's more likely to be the motherboard than the cpu. If you have another video card I'd try that too.

    USB thumb drive problems

    I've had many problems with usb flash drives and laptops. An ongoing one is usb 2 drives defaulting to usb 1 speed. I put that down to power, and assume that a powered usb hub might cure it.

    The XP install in this laptop, overdue to be replaced, will get the tray icons mixed up after being on for days or weeks. Click on an icon and something else opens.

    Icons aren't the problem. Googling found one possible answer saying that Windows had a 5000 folder limit in setting behaviour and suggested a registry change that reset that to 10,000. I need to give...

    Plenty of demand for Windows 8?

    Sure. After all, nobody out here knows how or can be bothered to wipe the hdd and install either another version of Win or a Linux. [/sarcasm]

    I was under the impression that the newer lead-free solders were a little harder to desolder -- needed higher temps.
