Hey guys, just trust the experts on this one. Many have negative reviews. In the short day that I have had this drive, I can say that something is really not right. I use a duplicater to dupe some of my ssd server drives. In every case, it takes somewhere just under an hour for my particular duplicater to image a 1tb ssd. Duping to this drive however ...so far 8 hrs and counting. Something is just not right about this drive. May work fine as a spare for pics and other data, but just spend a few extra bucks for another known name brand drive if you're looking for performance and/or reliability.
