This review is from: SSD 1T|SAMSUNG MZ-75E1T0B/AM R Configurator
Pros: Dropped in, full Debian installed and running in record time. Storage should not be a surprise, and this SSD is doing exactly what it should be doing: Working.
Cons: None yet.
Other Thoughts: I made sure to follow SSD recommendations in /etc/fstab, as well as turning swapiness down to nothing and using ramdisk for /tmp. That said, I couldn't be more pleased with "long term storage" (can't say disk drive any more) that just works.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: USB 3.0 2.5 Inch SATA Enclosure External Case for Notebook Laptop Hard Drive HDD
Pros: Small, tight, simple. Once put together there is nothing to indicate that the drive and case were not made for each other. The case is no bigger than it needs to be, and the aluminim is light and stiff.
Includes three screws where two are needed, just in case one is dropped.
Packaging is excellent. Useful zip-lock bags and the cloth carrying bag, and the double-ended cable simplifies things greatly.
Cons: There is not a lot of forgiveness for being sloppy. Take care with connecting the drive. I'm not sure I would use the word "fragile", maybe just "delicate", there simply isn't much margin for error until it's put together.
The included screwdriver is one size too small. They work, but having your own P1 phillips head driver will make it much easier.
Other Thoughts: I wanted something simple and inexpensive, and I received exactly that. Thank you, I will certainly buy one again in the future.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Silicon Power 1TB Armor A80 Portable Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model SP010TBPHDA80S3B Blue
Pros: Quiet and rugged, it does exactly what it's supposed to do. I've used it on 1 desktop and 2 laptops, USB3 and USB2, with no problems at all. I have had it running for a week at a time, it stayed merely warm and performed without error.
Other Thoughts: This does exactly what it says it will do.READ FULL REVIEW
