Plextor PX-M2 Series PX-128M2S 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Took a licking and kept on. 02/13/2014

This review is from: Plextor PX-M2 Series PX-128M2S 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast, Very fast, Tough ESD hardened.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This drive just took a huge ESD ZAP by accident. The resulting zap erased the drive completely. I thought this SSD was now a totally fried brick. But although it was empty, it took a format, and I was able to restore the data, and this drive was able to boot up again. I was amazed. The ESD zap was very strong, and had to be tens of thousands of volts. Always make a backup!

AZZA Helios 910 Black Japanese SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

4 out of 5 eggs Fantastic case, but. 02/13/2014

This review is from: AZZA Helios 910 Black Japanese SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Huge, with room for far more goodies inside than you could possible fill.

Cons: This a bad one, but easy to fix. The rails that hold the disk drives in their bays is painted a nice shiny black. Unfortunately that paint is a bit of an insulator, so when you mount an optical drive, or a external dual 2.5" drive bay in this case, the frame of this external device is not grounded to the frame ground of the PC. So when I walk up to my DVD drive mounted in this case, and press the open tray button, and get a static electric ZAP from walking across the carpet, this kills the DVD drive, and caused the PC to reboot with some free complementary disk errors. Later I mounted a dual 2.5" Rosewell external drive bay, and pressed the open door button, and instantly erased my boot drive with a ESD zap.

Other Thoughts: The problem is easy to fix. Just take some sand paper to the disk mounting holes in the drive bay rails, and sand off a small area of paint. This will allow a low resistance connection path for the ESD current to flow harmlessly into the bulk of the PC case, thus preventing an ESD data disaster. If the frames of the external devices are allowed to electrically float in relation to the PC frame ground, then this harmful ESD current flows through the grounds in the signal cable inducing bad voltages in the sensitive circuits of the disk.
