Didn't take bang for buck

miker, Amazon
5 March 2015
  • Summary: It worked Ok but it failed when subject to what, in my opinion, was insufficient force to cause failure. My wife dropped a plastic container on it and it was sitting on the floor so any acceleration could only be result of minimal displacement. I also don't like how S.M.A.R.T.

Unsuited for PS3

Ruibing W., Newegg
16 September 2013
  • Summary: This drive may be fine for PC use, but it is unsuited for consoles. I suggest using HGST, Samsung, or Seagate. Returned to Newegg.
  • Pros: Cheap 2 platter design
  • Cons: Noisy while idle (platters may be imbalanced) Causes PS3 system to periodically lock up during download/installation of games during automatic update Slow write speed (read speed is okay)

  • Pros: Got this on sale for $70. For a terabyte, that's a good price.
  • Cons: Clicking noise two weeks into owning it. I used it normally - just as a storage drive for downloads and movies. Data can still be read from and written to the drive, but I'm very worried that it'll fail any day. The hard drive it's replacing failed, so I'm quite worried that this one will die too.

  • Pros: На мой взгляд достаточно шустрый. Стоял в ноуте такой. Проработал 1,5 года, потом вылетел процесс classpnp.sys и после проверки на бэды выявилась проблема с контроллером. По всей видимости, где-то переломился или оторвался контакт, идущей от платы контроллера.
  • Cons: Стоял в ноуте такой. Проработал 1,5 года, потом вылетел процесс classpnp.sys и после проверки на бэды выявилась проблема с контроллером. По всей видимости, где-то переломился или оторвался контакт, идущей от платы контроллера. Как итог - пришлось заменить.
