Pros: Motherboard has solid b75 for business use no overclocking. Bent pins on your CPU socket will make your ram slot not work. The memory controller is in the CPU, bend a pin ever so slightly and you kill it (I've done one myself and spent about 20 hours fixing all the pins)
Cons: Needs more usb 2.0 on the backREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: It is very fast as a boot drive with plenty of storage.
Cons: NOT RELIABLE. This was a replacement RMA drive for one that failed hard during a data transfer from a 1.5TB drive it was replacing. The new replacement drive was working great for one day after the transfer and 8.1 fresh install on a B75 MOBO. Then for no reason it stopped booting, the data was there and usable if I wanted it as a second drive. I reloaded 8.1 using a different MOBO/chipset (Z77) believing it to be a compatibility issue. Unfortunately history repeated itself…this drive is defective! I will be returning it for a refund.
Other Thoughts: I find it hard to believe I got two defective drives in a row. This is a first.
Rather than upgrading to a single 4TB drive I decided to do a two drive solution; a 240GB SSD and a Seagate 3TB. So far so good but I do have a uneasiness about the 3TB because it’s a Seagate. Too bad because up to now I always had a good experience with Seagates.
Pros: Plenty of speed and storage. Had no problem getting the full 4TB recognized. Windows 8.1 w/Update 1 loaded without a hitch.
Cons: Again, Installed windows 8.1, worked like a champ. Started copying data from 1.5 TB WD RE drive it was replacing. (It had reached capacity after 2.5+ trouble free years.) After about 95% done and the 4TB failed,,,, hard! Very discouraging.
Other Thoughts: New egg is replacing the drive. Hopefully my experience is an exception and the replacement drive can give years of trouble free operation that I have experience with the 2.5" SSHDs in other application.READ FULL REVIEW
