5 out of 5 eggs Great Little Spin Drive 07/21/2016

This review is from: Seagate ST1000LM035 1TB 128MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive

Pros: Put drive into my Dell D4620 installed windows 10 pro 64 bit on it in about 30 minutes drive seemed to function quite fast for a 5400RPM spin drive, after got all the updates done partitioned it with windows disc manager and had no issues there then I rebooted and setup a dual boot with Peppermint 7 Linux took about 10 minutes to fully install again saw no issues with the job. Then it was time to delete everything and set it up as an external drive in a Rosewill USB2 case transfer speeds seem better that expected transferred 11GB of MP3 files to it in about17 minutes then JPEG files 17.6GB 8776 files took about 13 minutes. The drive never showed signs that it had less than quality build took everything in stride then deleted all partitions and put into the Dell again and put win 10 Pro on it again did not watch time as closely but seemed about 30 minutes again. I took out again and put it into storage for a backup drive in case my SSD dies and I need something quick. Good price factor for 1TB drive in 2½ format. Looks like some of the solder joints use gold instead of cheaper lead but not all the solder points solder points look clean and no slop in them like cheaper drives sometimes have

Cons: it is a spin drive so of course will use more power from laptop battery reducing run time

Other Thoughts: SYSTEM USED

Silicon Power 32GB Elite microSDHC UHS-I/U1 Class 10 Memory Card with Adapter, Speed Up to 85MB/s (SP032GBSTHBU1V20NE)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: Packaging was simple no hassle to open at all. First thing I did was put it in the adapter and plug it into the SD card reader that is connected to a USB 3 header and synced my music to it (4010 MP3 files of various sizes in 635 folders plus sub folders 10.9GB) using windows media player which took 77 minutes to do. Syncing is of course about the slowest transfer of files so the rest of my transfers were much faster for data throughput. Then tried it without the adapter and got about the same amount of time, so the adapter does not interfere with the transfer of data or slow it down in any notable way. Deleted a few folders and that went just as smoothly see no issues with this Micro SD card at all. Was able to transfer ISO files to it just the same as MP3 files or JPEG files all the same nothing drags it’s speed down. Then I started deleting files while transferring files to the drive and encountered no problems it took it all in stride like I expected it to. Then I tried large file transfers while doing the pictures folder to it with over 6000 JPEG files at same time as larger files and it looked to be about the same rate of transfer of both groups of files it did not appear to take first come first serve but divide resources between them equally as best I could determine

Cons: None noted very pleased with its performance overall
