  • Boots and performs like an SSD, PC & Mac Compatible

  • Height: 7.00mm
  • $79.99

Pros:

Fast boot up, quiet, and cool. Feels as fast as a 7200rpm WD black 500. this is an update to an earlier review.

Cons:

After 5 months of light use (303 hours on) getting blue screens. Fails Seagate short drive test and the reallocated sectors (161+), seek error rate, and raw read error rate are increasing.

Other Thoughts:

Really hardware and electronics after the first month or so should have weeded out the defects. After 300 hours one would think the reliability should be there, but not in this case. I have had a number of drives fail (mostly WD), but only after long use or very shortly after installation. This is a small sample, but disappointing.
