Pros: Fast, cooler, battery life

Cons: Wish it was a Pro

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace the original 500GB Seagate hybrid drive that came with my Samsung Series 5 ultrabook before the drive died on me. I used the Apricorn USB 3.0 wire to clone the OEM drive to the Samsung SSD and everything worked flawlessly. I use this laptop as the machine that sits on my lap in the evening for casual gaming, music storage and ebook repository. It's also the machine that I travel with since it's small and light and I've found that since I installed the SSD the battery lasts significantly longer. I'm pleased and would not go back to a regular HDD.

5 out of 5 eggs Worked well for me 07/08/2014

This review is from: APRICORN ASW-USB3-25 USB3.0 to SATA Adapter

Pros: Worked

Cons: None for me

Other Thoughts: I bought this in January when I discovered the drive cloning hardware/software combination I had been using for years did not work on my Dell Latitude 6520 with UEFI bios. Who knew? A tech I know recommended the Apricorn system and it has worked to clone 2 drives to Samsung SSDs. I had no problems with either the hardware or software, either with USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 ports.

Pros: Fast, cooler

Cons: EVO not Pro

Other Thoughts: The original equipment Seagate HDD failed in my less than 3 year old Dell Latitude in January. Dell replaced the HDD twice (the first Seagate replacement lasted less than 24 hours), but when NewEgg put this SSD on sale for $549.99 I decided to upgrade the laptop and get something that I hope will be more reliable in future. I cloned the HDD to the SSD using the Apricorn SATA wire 3.0 hardware and their EZ Gig cloning software and the transition was painless. It's expensive, but after dealing with hard drive failures on the laptop I use daily for business, I wanted something that was more reliable. So far I have not been disappointed. I didn't realize when I bought this that the EVO was not top of the line, but so far that hasn't seemed to be a problem.
