Need a drive for Windows to Go (or any other need), this fits the bill
19 February 2014
Summary: I am a tech geek and decided to give the Windows to Go feature of Windows 8 Enterprise a try. I quickly realized that my existing external hard drives were not supported (officially), using the Windows 8 utility. While there are workarounds (that really aren't too difficult), I wanted to try creating a drive using the official method. I purchased the 500GB edition of this drive. The price of this drive has come down to a more reasonable level from when I purchased it.
Summary: I ordered 3 of these when they were on sale for around $60. They were the most affordable option for the Windows To Go drives I needed to carry and use at various events. They work great for what I need them for, but are also great for additional storage to connect to your computer or even your home network via a compatible wifi router.
Summary: Whenever the speed of the hard drive is not mentioned, I assume it is only 5,400 rpm instead of 7,200 rpm. The speed is not mentioned. I would prefer at least 7,200 rpm, and I would be willing to pay extra for a 256GB SSD USB 3.0 external Hard-drive which is certified for Windows To Go. P.S. I have had this, and it seems perfect. I have Windows to Go (WTG) installed, and the speed seems as fast as the host computer which has a 7,200 rpm hard drive.
Summary: I have been looking for a reasonably priced WTO solution since WTO came out. This solution while much bigger than its competitors, has much more storage space. The price per GB is approximately $.25 vice $4/GB. And it works right out of the box. If you don't need a thumb drive for the small size this is the way to go. (PS. You will need Windows 8 or 8.1 Enterprise version to create a WTO environment.
Summary: Después de haber cambiado de disco duro porque el otro era demasiado pequeño decidimos comprar este otro, nos costaba poco más y ganábamos 180 gigas, cosa que para el momento nos iba perfecto, aunque ahora por el precio de compra de este nos darían 1 Tb o incluso más. El disco nos costó unos 60 euros, tiene 500 gigas, pero tengo que confesar que aunque tuviera más no lo usaría, con estos 500 gigas tengo suficiente, aunque nunca está de más tener más gigas por el mismo...
