|Seems reliable and does all that it is supposed to do. It is not the fastest drive, particularly on powering up. This unit seems to do all that is is supposed to do. Because it is SATA I did have a problem getting it to work in my PC. Easy installation, quick burning performance, quiet Slightly more expensive.|
