Good drive with fast write speeds.
on 26 May 2016
I have always used Seagate external drives, however, they are currently one of the least reliable brands and have one of the highest rates of drive failure, and as a working pro photographer who needs to back up his work securely, I decided to switch to a different brand. I spent quite a while looking at reviews, and doing my homework, and this drive had rated highly. It is meant to be shock proof, although I have no intention of finding out how good that feature is, in one review on a tech website, the reviewer dropped the drive repeatedly until it gave up working! It took him seventeen drops to break the drive!
So far, I'm pleased with the drive. It appears to be well made and very solid, it's far quicker than all of my Seagate drives, even those apparently equipped with USB 3.0. It seems good value for the price I paid, and depending on how reliable the Transcend proves to be, I will be buying more of them in future to back up my photographs on.
