This review is from: VANTEC CB-SATAU3-6 NexStar SATA 6Gbps to USB 3.0 Adapter - 2.5"/3.5"/5.25"/SSDs
Pros: used to migrate/clone my C-drive (OS) to a new 1 gig SSD.
Worked fine... transferred about 110 gig somewhere between 20 and 30 minutes (sorry not exact, wasn't paying attention)
Cons: I started the process of cloning with my laptop on my lap... about 10 minutes in I moved my laptop to the table, including the USB 3 adapter with the hard drive attached, and it disconnected and reconnected momentarily... forcing me to restart the cloning process. is this the adapters fault, or the USB3 slot on my laptop, or just what happens to any connection when moving it around? I don't know... but i restarted with the laptop stationary, and the cloning went off without a hitch. I should have known better then moving it around while in the middle of a big job. my bad.
Other Thoughts: I am very satisfied with the results.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: more memory... working well, shipped very fast.
Other Thoughts: doubled my memory - works great - slightly boosted my windows experience score for memory - not much but a little.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE1T0BW 2.5" 1TB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: everything is faster! Booting up, moving files, very easy to install and migrate OS to new disk. really idiot proof.
SSD - 1 gig. yahoo!
Cons: non yet. well, ok, the software "Samsung Magic" triggers a notice asking me if i want to make changes to my system everytime i boot up. is this normal? will have to look it up - it isnt a big deal anyway.
Other Thoughts: this SSD is rated at random read/write of 540/520, but my benchmark tests are showing average 1100/1000. I am transferring files over 100mbs. I went from a windows
experience number" of 5.9 with the original 500 gig/5400 rpm drive to 7.9 with this drive.
The cloning/migration software couldn't have been easier to use - plug in the new (SSD) drive to USB3, the new drive shows up as target, (original OS drive clearly marked, no mistaking) click yes, and 20 to 30 minutes later, your done. turn off computer, swap drives, and your done. I'm tucking the original drive away as a backup... what more could you ask for?
