Pros: Fast, attractive
Cons: This is the same size drive that most other manufacturers list as 120GB. SSD Magician software has few useful features and upon clicking "Performance Optimization" actually runs disk benchmarks without asking or prompting! The firmware update feature is also a joke, doesn't tell me what firmware version I'm currently running and clicking "F/W Download" button does nothing at all.
Other Thoughts: First, Samsung, consider getting in line with the rest of the 21st century and list your SSDs at their formatted sizes. Second, if you're going to tout "magic" software, make sure it actually works and doesn't run benchmarks that stress and wear the SSD without so much as asking the user first.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Can't comment on max speeds as I'm using a 3gb controller, but the drive is, of course, fast. It's also one of the prettiest pieces of computer hardware I've owned. At $139.99 I'm thrilled with my purchase.
Cons: None, yet.
Other Thoughts: For SSD noobs like myself, be sure to enable AHCI in your BIOS BEFORE INSTALLING WINDOWS. This allows Windows to use all the newer features (NCQ etc...). If you enable AHCI after installing, your machine won't boot. Ask me how I know. =(READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Seagate 250GB USB 2.0 2.5" External Hard Drive ST902504EXA101-RK Black
Cons: Died in a few months.
Other Thoughts: I've purchased 3 Seagate drives in recent years, two are in a landfill. Their warranty is a joke, and now, so is their image as a quality manufacturer.READ FULL REVIEW
