"Good value for money, SSD doesn't yet rule because of price/"

By Stefan Schwartz on 15 June 2019

  • Pros:
    Good price / Tb
  • Pros:
    Lot of space for photos
  • Pros:
    Small, easy to transport
  • Pros:
    Not noisy
  • Pros:
    Looks good
  • Con:
    USB port is special. in case cable lost will have to look for a replacement, not in house.
  • Con:
    When I copied like 100Gb it got a bit warm, no fan.
  • Con:
    Cable is a bit short, has to stay very close to laptop

cannot say yet on reliability but I already transferred like 600Gb from a different HDD and it took some hours and all is good. Copying speed when you transfer from external HDD to another external HDD depends of course on both drives as well as USB ports of computer. That said I reached peaks of 120Mb/s with steady copying at 80Mb/s. It also went down to 20-30 Mb at times. After 1h of crunching it got bit warm which is not strange given there is no active heat evacuation, all is based on natural evacuation through holes.
