Feedback, Fallout and Contributions

The SanDisk 512GB Ultra Fit USB 3.1 Flash Drive is really pretty good - works like a charm, almost invisible to the port, read/writes seem fast enough. Cool!


I swapped the Dell Hub/Station for another one I had kicking about and the lag with peripherals when attached to the laptop in exactly the same way is all gone. So even though I had tested the Dell thing on my GiantPC and it seemed to work fine, perhaps I was just lucky. Happy again now with Stream Deck doing what it should!
