Patriot Blast 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Both were very fast compared to spinning disks

Cons: Both died early deaths. One within 2 weeks, the other after two months.

Other Thoughts: On 8/28/15 I ordered two Patriot Blaze 120GB drives from Newegg with the intention of using them as Windows system only drives. Data would be stored on a different drives. On 9/15/15 the first of those two drives died. Newegg made the replacement quick and easy. Today the second drive died. Since it has now been more than 30 days Newegg says I now have to deal Patriot Memory for warranty. To tell you the truth I’m not sure I want another Blaze drive and I’m reluctant to put the replacement Blaze drive that Newegg sent me into service. If I could return both for credit I would.

SATA 2nd HDD HD Hard Drive Caddy Case for 12.7mm Laptop CD / DVD-ROM Optical Bay

2 out of 5 eggs Great idea , but...... 08/12/2015

This review is from: SATA 2nd HDD HD Hard Drive Caddy Case for 12.7mm Laptop CD / DVD-ROM Optical Bay

Pros: Will work in just about any modern laptop. At $10 it's cheap.

Cons: It wouldn't sleep while there was a HDD in the bay. I couldn't even get my laptop to sleep by pressing the button. Simply removing the tray let the system work as it should.

Other Thoughts: Like the title says. It's a great idea but the execution is just a little off.

The other little niggles I had was that the face of the bay was a flat DVD style front. If your laptop has any kind of shape to the front of t's optical drive tray like mine did it won't look right.

The mounting screws on one side wouldn't screw all the way in so they were flush. This made it so the tray couldn't be installed. Simply removing those two offending screws made it so it could slide in.

One last thing. On most laptop optic drives there is one screw at the back of the drive that holds it into the chassis. This tray seems to rely on it's friction fit as there is no screw hole to secure it with.

Overall I'm not impressed. It works but not really properly.
