Fast but totally unreliable. Avoid.

  • Summary: I bought two of these drives and they both failed, the first one thankfully before I even managed to get any data on it. They have a fan mount in the back of the case but NO FAN! Naturally they overheat and die. Read the other reviews, you'll see the build quality is rubbish.

Fast but not Reliable

Bryan Spaulding, Amazon
5 January 2015
  • Summary: Purchased two units new in August 2013. One unit failed in the first few months of operation and the other unit failed several months after the first. Both were replaced by the factory in an easy process. Then the two replacement units eventually failed in almost the same timeline as the first two.

  • Summary: Drive failed after 3 months. When I called the company, they tried to blame the failure on me. Apparently, the drive is not meant for heavy/normal use. They are going to likely replace the drive, but I have to pay for shipping.

nice but flawed.

Petecpocala, Amazon

  • Summary: I really wanted to love this product. I own a media company and these drives seemed like a great fit. They are small the read and write speeds are extremely fast and they run quite. Unfortunately of the 5 we purchased 8 months ago only 1 is still functional.
