Terrible

Not my best buy. On a (quite) cluttered system (2/3 to 3/4 of the disk full) on a mainstream laptop (with an Intel i3 CPU), I saw no difference between this and my preview built-in HGST 5K1000, it disappointed me. It's only after a few months of still no good latency and speed that I saw that this model, even if it's widely used, is not better than a classic 7200 rpm hard drive.


Terrible

It generates more heat than SSDs and slower than 7200 rpm HDDs! When it's used as an external drive, it sometimes loses our precious data! You're fired, FireCuda!


Excellent

Large capacity storage in a tiny package. :v
