Even if it's not as fast as SSD.. I got 3 of these babies in 1 laptop, xbox one s, ps4.. still running. It's true it's not as fast.. it needs some time to learn what files should be in cache.. but it does the job reliably.

I have a few SSD with high failure rate after a year. So if you want to avoid burning cash with cheap SSD.. get a high quality SSD or this. I like the firecuda because it's got 2 tb with a little bit of high quality cache (8 gb). Best at $60. Has not been lower.

You want this if you have limited slots (i.e. console or labtop). Desktop obviously get a high quality SSD like EVO or Crucial. Avoid PNY as they die quickly and their customer service on that 3-year warranty is a pain in the butt to deal with. Adata mixed but seems ok.

It uses 5400 rpm drive so pretty slow. Unless your files are 8gb and less.. its a mediocre performance. More for the casual user. I wouldn't recommend this for any production as that requires hefty resources.

I have a 2TB desktop version of this drive, it works great for storage, but if you are wanting to deal with huge files in realtime, NVME pcie x 4 is the route you want to be going with. You can get a 1 TB Sabrent with around 3K read and write for around $100 now on amazon. I actually just updated my MacBook Air 2015 model from a 256GB drive to a 1TB and it sped up about 3 times faster on the access speed and the sad part is that it is held back by the MacBook Air.

You must have some bad luck as I have 2 of these and both have over 17k hours on them.

I have 6 of these dating back 2 years. I tried to get them to work in RAID in a dell server, but kept getting errors. Couldnt figure it out so used them elsewhere. One in a XboxOne, some in laptops, one in a 2.5" to usb3 converter as a portable usb storage. No problems with any of them; no errors, bad spots, or speed issues. Recommended if you need a 2tb 2.5".

Bad for PCs but great for consoles as mentioned. I've had one in my PS4 Pro for going on two years now and have not had any issues. Load times are around 35% faster on certain games. If you play a bunch of different games in a given week, it may not help much but I tend to stick with 1-2 and play through them before going on to something else.
