5 out of 5 eggs Not just for video surveillance! 01/11/2013

This review is from: Western Digital WD10JUCT WD AV 2.5-inch 1TB 5400 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Excellent sequential read OR write performance, 100MB/second.
Excellent for video editing.
Small enough to fit in laptops including many CD-ROM bay caddies to allow for dual-1TB drive RAID setups.
16MB cache on a 1TB drive helps greatly with random read/write performance.

Cons: Power draw is higher than some alternatives, so battery life will suffer if you use this drive a lot on battery.

Other Thoughts: If you're a power user trying to set up a workstation-grade laptop with all the fixings, this is an excellent drive to use one (or two! It's small enough it fits in CD-ROM bay caddies!) alongside an mSATA or other SSD boot drive.

Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series 240GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDAT240GB-DX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Random read/write performance is excellent.
Works great in Lenovo Ivy Bridge laptops.
Full SATA-3 speeds for reads in some situations.
Saves noticable weight versus even a normal SSD, let alone any HDD.
In many laptops, allows for an SSD OS drive, plus dual HDDs for storage for road-warrior use.

Cons: Unable to break SATA-2 speeds for writes.
No included software to handle overprovisioning.
No included software to handle migration.

Other Thoughts: For the many laptops that have dual-SATA3 internal bays, but the mSATA slot is only SATA2, this SSD is ideal.

Especially if you're going to reinstall from scratch, this drive is excellent.
