This review is from: Crucial BX200 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CT240BX200SSD1
Pros: Reliable, and good read / write speeds
Other Thoughts: Using as an external drive for my Xbox One (make sure you use a 5 volt 2amp power adapter to get the best read/write performance) . It loads Fallout 4 and other games in about half the time which I am very satisfied with.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TROND® D6 2.5” SATA III Hard Drive External Enclosure w/ 3-Port Powered USB 3.0 Hub (Tool-Free Design, 5V/2A Power Adapter Included, Compatible with all 7mm to 9mm Thick 2.5” HDD & SSD)
Pros: Comes with a 2amp power adapter. I don't think people realise the relevance of this when using an SSD as an external drive. Yes you can run an SSD externally with just the power off the USB cable (USB 3.0 is 900mah, USB 2.0 is 500mah) However most SSD drives require their full power rating in order to get their full potential read/write speeds. Before I purchased this trond case, I was using a USB 3.0 cable for the power, the read / write speeds were 255mbps. This would have been ok if the interface was SATA II, but since the SSD is SATA III and using a USB 3.0 connection, I was only getting less than half the speed off the USB's power alone. Adding the 2amp adapter this external case comes with put my read / write speeds back up 550 MBps.
Cons: None. It does with it is advertised to do and that is good enough for me!
Other Thoughts: Im using this drive case with an SSD drive to run games a little faster off my Xbox One. Works great, just make sure you use the power adapter if using an SSD!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Stable and very good memory for my desktop!
Other Thoughts: I wish I had two more memory slots on my motherboard. Sometimes when the leds sync up flashing it reminds me of the warp core from Star TrekREAD FULL REVIEW
