Not bad for $30

J. Watkins, Amazon
6 August 2015
  • Summary: The price made it a good deal, however my drive keeps hanging up while in use and is causing my system to lag sometimes. it's only 3-5 seconds a few times a day. I also had to reinstall windows after having it installed for about 20 minutes because the drive had lost a file somehow that soon.

Backup hard drive

Arthur F., Amazon
16 June 2015
  • Summary: I guess I love it...it's a 500GB hard drive and so far it works with no problems. It was a replacement for a 40GB hard drive in an older SFF HP computer I decided to upgrade for a backup computer, so it most likely won't get a lot of use...at least for now.

Matt, Amazon

  • Summary: Nothing spectacular of earth-shattering here. Works as advertised, however, there was nothing in the way of literature included with the drive. Granted, if you are purchasing this item you should know what to do with it, but I had expected at least some connector cables so I could test the drive...

A nice SATA 3 GB/s drive.

USgov.Planned911, Amazon
3 April 2015
  • Summary: These are nice SATA Hard drives for slightly older computers. A lot of people might just go for the drives that the retail stores carry, but I think that these Audio-Visual (and the older Enterprise drives) might have something to offer over some of the latest hard drives.
