This review is from: StarTech SAT32MSAT257 mSATA SSD to 2.5in SATA Adapter Converter
Pros: Not expensive
Works at full speed SATA 3 (6Gbps)
Works with Samsung EVO 1TB
Speeds with EVO 500-550 MB/s Read/Write screens
Installed in laptop 2.5" bay
Cons: Puts another point of failure in your setup, less is always better regarding that.
Other Thoughts: I think the open design would help with heat, but maybe I'm wrong...I like it.
Bought because I already had a mSATA 1TB ssd, didn't want to have to buy a whole other drive just because new laptop didn't come with mSATA slot.
Pros: Low cost per Gig
Speed is comparable to other ssd's on the market
3 year warranty
Works in Alienware 17 r2 2015 (can't test Raid yet, Bios not updated)
Cons: description is wrong - doesn't come with Acronis or a screw, but as the other reviewer said newegg usually sells oem type products...so I'll take it.
Other Thoughts: I hope they change the description but oh well, good product so far. Bought 2 to test RAID, but my laptop can't configure RAID yet...BIOS needs updating.
CrystalDiskMark and Atto both gave the drive around 450-550 MB/s Read/Write speeds....fast enough.
Alienware 17 r2 2015
GTX 980m 4G
16 GB 1600 RAM
256 Crucial MX200 M.2
Pros: Seems like this will be a nice ssd (once I hook it up)
Cons: You get only what is on the picture, the card in some plastic container....
Doesn't come with Screw or Acronis True Image as stated in the features and the Overview page.
Shipped in a bubble wrap lined bag (the ones that are kind of flimsy) - if someone put a little bit of pressure on it, it would probably break the ssd, the plastic isn't that sturdy.
Other Thoughts: Little disappointed in newegg as this was sold and shipped by them, not an outside partner. I bought two, shipped separately. Emailed both Crucial and Newegg and waiting for a response now.
Card looks like it will be good, bought it to try in my Alienware 17 r2 2015 laptop which should come in early March. Will update with another review once I actually have used this product.
Just wanted to make sure people know what they get when purchasing this item.
