Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review

RunCore Pro V 120GB Solid-State Drive Review - PCSTATS.com RunCore Pro V 120GB Solid-State Drive Review

"The RunCore Pro V 120 SSD is one of the few drives to come with the ability to connect to a USB port which is nice for data migration. They make it easy to do. The SATA II to USB connector just needs to be attached and fitted into the chrome piece and then the entire enclosure screws together. Performance will be severely hampered because of the limited bandwidth of USB 2.0 so nix any ideas of using it as an external USB drive ongoing - it would just be a waste of a good drive. Outside of the enclosure, the drive is very attractive. If you are into bling, the engraved brushed aluminum shell may ring your bell. As far as the SATA II performance goes, we saw greater performance than the 260MB/s read/write specifications RunCore lists in their specifications. In the ATTO benchmark, we saw closer to 275MB/s writes and 285MB/s reads. Overall, its well on par with the other SandForce drives we've tested as we anticipated as the drives push the SATA II bandwidth limits already so its nearly impossible to do any better..."
