Cons: I have been cloning mechanical drives to SSD drives for several years now and would caution anyone going to a SSD drive to be sure to back up their important data. I have had other brands of SSD's fail and then not be able to obtain any data from them. With defective mechanical drives, most of the time the data and other information could still be accessed.
Overall Review: I cloned a Western Digital WD5000AAKX drive to this Team Group CX2 512GB SSD. Running Windows 7 Pro, the old drive would take about 3 minutes to boot to desktop and about 33 seconds to open the Google Chrome browser. (By the way, it was slower than that before I cleaned it up with Malwarebytes and Ccleaner.) The cloned CX2 drive now boots up in about 20 seconds and only takes about 4 seconds to open Google Chrome. Also the old drive took a couple of minutes to shut down and the new one does it in about 8 seconds.
Side note: I used the free version of Macrium Reflect 7 to clone the drives.
Cons: Sluggish with Windows 10 machine.
Overall Review: When I first plugged this in to my Windows 10 machine, the response was very slow (almost unusable) and I planned to return it. But after being plugged in for about a day, it got much better and was usable. So I plan to keep it. I have used many wireless mice over the years and I have never had one be this sluggish when first plugged in. But like I said earlier, it got better with time. Because of this problem, I would not recommend it.
Pros: Great price.
Seems pretty fast.
No problem with wifi or bluetooth.
Larger screen & newer technology than my Samsung Galaxy S4.
Overall Review: Was using a Samsung Galaxy S4 that I paid over $400 at AT&T, but the wifi kept disconnecting, so I decided to try this phone. My wife's Galaxy S4 has no problems with wifi.
Pros: This is my 2nd Lite-On burner with LightScribe. Both have been faster than the Lite-On's that I have had without LightScribe. The CD'R's they produce have been more easily read and played on my Bose system.
Overall Review: Would recommend.
