ADATA Premier SP550 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The price per GB is what sold me on the drive

Cons: Read and Write speeds are incredibly slow 100MB a sec. My 20gb intel ssd from 7 years ago is faster. In fact it replaced a 1tb 2.5" mechanical notebook drive that was faster.

Other Thoughts: Should have spent the extra 50 bucks on the samsung 850 evo. I'm not going to rma it just to have another broken drive. Keep your $ adata.

Dell Latitude E6520 - 2nd Generation i5 2.5GHz - 8gb RAM - 160GB SSD Drive - 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Ordered 2 machines, one was faulty upon arrival. Contacted support and they paid return shipping of the faulty machine and sent a replacement back in excellent shape

Cons: had to use the warranty

Other Thoughts: Although I wish both laptops would have worked on arrival I understand electronics natural state is to be thrown through a window or down a stairwell. With that said, their support was fantastic and immediate. Direct email contact with the same person start to finish. Thanks Kym.

5 out of 5 eggs AWESOME NAS'S 05/07/2013

This review is from: WD My Book Live 3TB Personal Cloud Storage

Pros: Best price/performance single drive NAS around.
SSH is a checkbox away.
Using these everywhere I can. Using rsnapshot to backup to servers off-site.
I get solid 70-80 MB read and 50-60 MB write speeds (big b people look on wikipedia) from the 20 or so I have purchased. This is using windows Vista/7 machines.
They are Quite, consume very little power, and sleep.

Cons: So the 100MB read speeds are not possible in any useful task besides presumably WD's synthetic benchmarks.

Other Thoughts: The 800MHZ cpu in these is the weak point and if it was faster I'm sure the speeds would incre
I have had 1 issue with a NAS that a later firmware flash resolved. So far no RMA's.
This device needs to be stored in a climate controlled room under 85* with high humidity otherwise the device send warning emails and ultimately will shut the nas off until temps return to normal.
Disable all unused services via management interface to speed it up a bit. (twonky, time machine, web access) Twonky being the worst offender.

I think the large majority of owners rating this device down where failure was not the issue appear to be simply inexperienced. 3 MB read speeds sounds like a VERY NICE 2.4GHZ 802.11G wireless network.

If you want good network performance plug in that cat5 or study up on your wireless capabilities.
