Too new to tell how long it will last, but it went in and fired up easily. Very quick. Very quiet, not as quiet as a SSD, but very, very much quieter than my old Samsung and WD HDDs. Runs cool as well. Wish I'd got 2TB now.

Very fast on startups and data transfer


October 2020

good cross between a SSD and conventional HDD


April 2020

my games and pc run a lot quicker now

I have used 1TB Firecuda to give old Laptops a speed boost and plenty capacity in a 2.5" and slim form factor. Also used 2 in my main PC in "Storage Spaces" ...that is effectively Raid 1 that back-ups are quicker and data is duplicated for security. Very easy to set up.
