Short life

Strengths of the product

Works as advertised until it doesn't work at all.

Weaknesses of the product

This drive, used only as once-a-week backup drive lasted only 6 months. The WD version lasts much longer.

Additional Comments

Short life drive. Try another brand.

Likely SMR

Strengths of the product

These drives have a great $/GB (especially with Black Friday pricing) The power adapter comes with every international plug end you could ever need if you travel with it. Compact form factor, activity light on top.

Weaknesses of the product

Likely an SMR (Shingled Magnetic Recording) drive, random read/write performance is terrible.

Additional Comments

For sequential large block size reads and writes, this drive does ~185-190 MB/sec, for small block size random reads and writes this drive does ~0.5-1.5MB/sec (not a typo). For backups, media, and large file storage these drives will work great, think of these drives like Backup Tapes, this isn't where you want to store small files or have random access.
