Re

It's not reduced performance. It's overhead. It's an inherent disadvantage of a serial bus.
Ok, just tested in my office PC running Win 7 Pro with a HDD on USB 3.0. The transfer was disappointing about 145MB/s as compared to transferring to my SP3 reaching about 245MB/s.

I think the issue lies in the receiving HDD/SSD and not the UASP-supported USB 3.0 enclosures.

The SAMSUNG 850 PRO 512GB SSD is a top notch SSD with an ability to reach about 450MB/s in read/write. This is a proven fact.

Now if transferring to a slower HDD/SSD it is sure to impact its transfer speed. Although the SP3 comes with a built-in SSD I believe its performance is not as good as the SAMSUNG 850 PRO 512GB SSD. And that's the reason I'm only getting 245MB/s in transfer speed.

So to test the real capability of the SAMSUNG 850 PRO 512GB SSD you'll need two (2) identical or equivalent speed SSDs - one reading from and the other writing to.

Can surface 2 install qvod player? 快播? As when I try to install it says 'this app cannot be installed in my PC' is it because of the windows 8.1?

you didn't get the extra warranty? I thought that's pretty important, at least for me bcos I bring my device out everyday and use extensively.

if I buy sp3 from retail shop, I can still buy the extra warranty online? my worry is if I buy the full set online, I may end up getting a set w defect, so if buy fr retail shop at least can check thoroughly before paying.

nope....i change devices every 6-12 months so getting additional warranty kind of pointless for me....yes you can purchase microsoft complete even if u bought ur set from local retail store
