So far so good
on 3 April 2013
Well, it's just arrived today. This will be a rolling review, updated as I use it.
So far, a good sturdy feeling drive, lots of reviews on the web have been very complementary about it (i spent ages researching it). It is marketed as a budget drive. But what's budget about it?
Well from the looks of the reviews it's not able to handle as high a workload as many of the other more expensive drives. BUT as one review pointed out, the amount of work they were using to test it was pretty high (64 queue depth)and way out of the way of people who use their system to a 'normal' degree.
So it looks like if you are doing ALOT of things all at once and all wanting disk access, other drives may be better. BUT if you are doing all that you're likely to look for the higher performing drives anyway.
On the positive side the reviews show it holds it's own VERY well in other areas compared again to the more expensive drives.
**UPDATE 1 MONTH ON***
It's great, boots INCREDIBLY quickly and windows now flies around.
If like me you are spending ages looking at all the different options and require a good fast drive and you're not going to be overloading it with work then save yourself some time and just get this one.

Excellent still (although am running out of space!!) It was time to buy another one today, BUT i just saw the reviews above. UHHOH,,,,may rethink my purchase!!!!!
