iStarUSA BPN-DE110SS-BLACK 1 x 5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The overall quality is outstanding.
If you want an easy mount/dismount of a hard drive, this is one of the best.
Price sometimes very low.

Cons: Looking at the little circuit board, I see the problem noted by James M. With care, it is manageable.

Other Thoughts: With most of us moving on to SSDs and beyond, these may soon be dinosaurs for dinosaur hard drives.

It has a two-pin connector on the back for a fan.
Finding a fan for this may be challenging.
Hard drives last longer if not hot to the touch.

Intel 530 Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Rock Solid
Totally dependable
As fast as any
Good supporting software -- Intel Toolbox

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Have used Intel SSDs for over five years
My first SSD was an Intel 160 GB
Never had a problem with an Intel SSD

I don't want anything other than Intel and "S" SSDs.

HGST Travelstar H2IK10003272SN (0S03563) 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Working flawlessly

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Using as target for drive backup
Clone to this, reboot on this to verify successful clone
Keep "just in case"

Best to save more than one clone, in the event you discover a problem after your next clone.

I don't trust drive images -- how can you actually test them?
