perf/price is better than WD black

Best buy on the market considering performance and storage capacity. It's faster than WD Black and Seagate Barracuda as tested with CrystalDiskMark. In short, sequential read/write are over 190 MB/s. The only downside is rather high "spin up retry count" as within 1000 working hours it already has already 4, 5 or more, while WD and Seagate have 0, but that shouldn't affect its lifetime or performance during the 5 year period. Afterwards, it's questionable.
