Summary: PROS: Inexpensive. Fast. Easy to install. Great backup drive. CONS: None. I recently built a computer and bought two of these for my applications. They were easy to install and are fast at processing my data. If you are looking to backup your data or build a new computer, forgoing a SSD, this is a reliable option. The drives have been functioning for months now with no errors or delays in speed.
Summary: I really had a difficult time getting my Computer to recognize this drive but after I finally got it it has worked well. Also I didn't get the software on CD like the box said, I downloaded it from the web.
Summary: using it for over couple of years with usb sata dock, doing good job. one important thing in using disks for longtime is don't move them often and don't move them during the operation. I cannot comment any thing on speeds, because i didn't measure them, but over all my feeling is i am getting good speeds during file transfers and during video editing reading or writing to the disk.
