Pros: All outweighed by Failure Rate
Cons: Failed. I purchased four of these drives for use with the Black Magic HyperDeck Studios. I formatted the drives properly, used them for about a month when randomly one of them just stopped being recognized, by my gear or even Disk Utility. Tried everything but I couldn't get it to show up anywhere or reformat, and then the same thing happened with the 2nd drive. Sent them into Intel for Warranty Replacement, they sent out 2 new ones. One of the 2 new ones wouldn't format through Disk Utility, had to do a COMPLETE zero out on that drive to get it to format (in simply Mac OS Extended Journaled). Then this morning, one day after getting the replacements, I plugged in my older two drives (which literally have just been sitting on a desk for 2 weeks, not used at all. And NOW THEY WON'T BE RECOGNIZED. Can't reformat them, won't show up in Disk Utility. These drives have nothing but the worst failure rate. I've been using SSDs for a few years now in many capacities but have NEVER had this many issues with one particular brand.
Other Thoughts: I've used these in multiple settings and systems, they've all failed. At different times, in different conditions.READ FULL REVIEW
