Sorry to hear that SSD failed. Most of the reviews on Amazon are positive (y) I have taken the reviews screensot from Amazon below and it says 4.7 out of 5.0 which is very good... :D

mrBrian

out of all the ssd's i have used, this one is the only model that has ever failed on me. luckily it wasn't being used much and had only a small ammount of data on it that couldn't be replaced. good price,just can't trust the same model if one has already shown weakness. a lot of negative reviews on amazon about early death, so i'm not alone.

Briefly at £299 a while ago too. But even at this price it is a fantastic deal for two 8TB WD Red drives (I believe) with USB C connectivity. Last time I checked this out people were saying it's easily shuckable too, for those wishing to use in their NAS of choice...

FireOnAWire

Yeah same. Tried all of them but reserved the likes of Evo & MX for my main rig and the others for lower end machines.

spannerzone

Well my preferred choice is a Samsung EVO 860 or a Crucial MX500.... but I've also purchased lower spec (dram less) Crucial BX500, Integral V series and a few Sandisks and so far all been good.

FireOnAWire

Which DRAM equipped drive would you recommend?

spannerzone

Yes worth reading up about, it's not a show stopper by any means but worth knowing.....as I said, I'm no expert but know it's worth a mention as some may prefer to spend more to get DRAM. A 250GB SSD for under £30 is superb value and even these dram cache-less models will still be a worthy upgrade from a mechanical drive.

all2humanuk

Yeah actually reading about it the use of the word cache is a little misleading as it doesn't cache in the classic sense of storing raw data but rather the block map of the drive.

eternald

I got this laptop shortly after it came out, mostly because of the 4gb graphics card. Native gaming was ok, a bit slower than the other 1050 I had and it can't do vr as the graphics output has to go through the onboard. Overpriced for what it is worth imo. Worth it for around the £425-450 but no more really.

This is an excellent price athough has been a little cheaper through Amazon US - UK distribution place. I forget the exact name but I did wonder whether they warrenty would apply to foreign sales. Think the price was £156, it was on here a month ago.

TheDodger

i got one the other day. it's a 10tb 256mb cache white helium drive that you might have to perform a slight mod with tape or kapton tape which is what I used because this drive can be incompatible with some power supplies so i just did it to be safe since its super simple. wd100emaz-00wjtao is the model number i got. A white is pretty much the same as a red but the 3.3v pin. here is the guide if you were interesting in getting one https://old.reddit.com/r/DataHoarder/comments/7g2v9o/33v_pin_reset_directions_d/ I'll add it was really simple to take the drive apart also I didnt really even have to look at a guide just used a screwdriver to force it open a bit then used cards to do the rest on either side then the enclosure just slides away and you only need to unscrew 2 screws which use a standard philips head

Marko73

I guess this device is OK if all you have is an IDE drive and/or USB 2 ports but if you have a SATA drive, I really wouldn't recommend it. Something like this is better and cheaper, and almost any semi-modern PC should support it: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3-5-SATA-Aluminium-External-USB-3-0-Hard-Drive-Enclosure-Caddy-Case-Computer-HDD/401721850388 From my cursory search, 3.5" IDE to USB 3 enclosures do exist but they're expensive (https://www.amazon.co.uk/3-5-HDD-SATA-Drive-Enclosure-Velocity/dp/B00HYZA1EE/). I expect that's because they're a fairly niche product as you wouldn't typically be connecting such an old drive unless you really needed the data that was on it.

Hammerit44

Its a docking station not an enclosure and it does not do support IDE drives as mine is... I could have missed it though... looks nice kit but I also have a WD external hardrive thats 10 years old and the power supply blew,mine will drive both comes with all cables all provided. each to their own kit that serves them better (y)

Haircut_100

This is £16.99 at Amazon but there is a £2 off voucher at checkout so should be £14.99. I've got one of these, branded as Tecknet, but looks exactly the same. USB 3.0 and nice and fast at transferring data. Some people though like to get a two dock bay to make cloning drives easy or for using multiple drives together. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Alxum-External-Docking-Station-Support/dp/B01K7IQR1K/ref=mp_s_a_1_15?ie=UTF8&qid=1552333307&sr=8-15π=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=usb+3.0+dock+hdd

Use it for backup, not storage. Perfectly fine to use RAID0 for backup, provided you aren't leaving massive amounts of time between them.

Balfington

Yes. I am desperately serious. I'll assume it's the fan and its firmware more than the drives. For the occasional back up and tapping for files I don't see why you'd need something with nas drives or an active cooling solution.

aLV426

Seriously? Red drives are designed to spin slower (5400rpm vs 7200rpm) so they should run quieter than other drives in their range. They are also designed to withstand the heat generated from being constantly powered on and the vibration... If you really want to know the information is freely available on their web site...
