"Goed produkt voor een goede prijs"

Ruud | 2 September 2019 | Total storage capacity: 1 TB

  • Pros:
    snel
  • Pros:
    groot
  • Pros:
    prijs/kwalteit
  • Con:
    De ssd is niet genitialiseerd
  • Con:
    Het was even zoeken naar cloning software

Met schijfbeheer (disk management) kan je de ssd herkenbaar maken als drive in Windows. Western Digital heeft twee gratis programma's voor de ssd op de site: met Acronis om je C:\ schijf klonen naar de nieuwe ssd, en SSD Dashboard waarmee je kan kijken hoe het met de ssd gaat. Na een paar weken is volgens de Dashboard de slijtage 0.05%. Na wat rekenen kom ik op een levensduur van ongeveer 50 jaar.
