Pros: Over the past two years of so I, and various members of a computer club I'm associated with, have purchased this HDD. To my knowledge not one of the purchasers, including myself, have experienced any problems with the drives. They've performed admirably.
Cons: None of any consequence.
Other Thoughts: Some of the negative reviews are quite puzzling. There's no need for "drivers"; ordinarily no SATA data cable is packaged with these products, we've not encountered any "heat-related" problems or broken plastic connectors, etc, etc.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The only "Pro" I can think of is that the disk wasn't defective. It could be initialized, partitioned, & formatted. But that's about it.
Cons: Slow as molasses. Hard to believe you're working with a SSD. My advice is to seek another SSD in that disk-space capacity assuming you're looking for a 240 GB - 256 GB SSD. There are plenty others to choose from.
Other Thoughts: Yes, you'll pay somewhat more for a decent SSD, but do so is my advice.
(I guess the reviewer who stated this Hyundai Sapphire "increased my Elantra ten-fold" was speaking tongue-in-cheek. The Elantra, of course, is a Hyundai auto.
Pros: I've only worked with this StarTech USB 3.1 dock a few days now but I'm mighty impressed with its performance. My system is an ASRock Z170 Extreme 7+ that has, of course, USB 3.1 capability.
Obviously I purchased this device for one reason, and one reason only, and that is speed. It hasn't disappointed me in that regard. While I haven't benchmarked its performance it's obvious that it is considerably faster than USB 3.0. There's simply no comparison. I've been using the device for moving/copying large chunks of data between my system's SSDs & HDDS and have used both of those types of drives as well in the unit. I also use the device for my disk-cloning operations that I use for comprehensive backups of my system (frequently on a daily basis).
The device is nicely designed - it's quite compact (see the Newegg specs), and wisely installed the power switch & bright blue LED on the front/top of the case. The drive eject button is adequate.
Cons: Obviously the price.
Other Thoughts: Highly recommended if your system can support USB 3.1 capability and can afford the rather steep sales price.READ FULL REVIEW
