Crucial MX100 CT512MX100SSD1 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs Boot to tone from 80 sec to 45 sec 06/25/2014

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT512MX100SSD1 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Really cuts program load time. From button push to W7/64 welcome tone cut from 80+ seconds to about 45. Video editing program load time cut by like ratios. AV scans much faster. Faster rendering of videos. Great price per GB. Comes with a spacer for laptop install, I mounted it in a tower HDD bay.

Cons: Heinous Acronis registration process took longer than the actual clone. At least the SW allowed a 1T HDD to clone down to 512GB. Some do not. The 16 digit code supplied with the drive only gets you to the registration page, which emails you a 64 digit SN. To long to cut & paste, you must type it in to continue. 5 looks like S, O like 0, so it is a thrash.

Other Thoughts: Mounted the drive on an adapter with 60mm fan for cooling. Cloned the drive on desk via USB and while it did not get smokin' hot, I felt the fan was a good idea.

TOSHIBA Canvio Connect 1TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive HDTC710XL3A1 Blue
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Really bright red case. Egg is quick to process refund.

Cons: DOA. RMA to Egg for refund. Cost me 9$ to ship it back.

Other Thoughts: Egg RMA process was no hassle but this is the fourth DOA drive from them in about a year.

WD My Passport Ultra 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBZFP0010BBL-NESN Blue
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Short phone wait. Friendly Tech. No argument, pretty instant RMA and a discounted UPS shipping label. Tech explained that warranty swap outs are classified as refurbished but are actually merchant returns of unsold drives. Tech emphasized the fact they are NOT re-mans or repaired. I understand the legality of that. While displeased with the failure rate I appreciate the rapid RMA system at WD.

Cons: Another brand of USB thumb drive failed and while I had to pay to ship it back on RMA they sent me a brand new TD in a blister pack. A well known printer maker sells its re-furbs in their web site store at discounted prices. Another printer maker replaced our color laser MFC with a brand-new boxed one. Just sayin'.

Other Thoughts: I've not yet received the replacement so I cannot comment on whether it is OEM boxed or in a retail package.
