Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
PlexCombo - PlexCombo
Mon, October 14 2002 | 5:50PM | PermaLink Feedback?
"The drive was easy enough to install, just like anything else. Set your jumper, connect the IDE, connect the power and then your audio cable and your good to go. You might wanna put in some screws though too, that helps. After I got it installed and ready to go (I'm using it here as my master drive with my other CD-RW as my slave) I fired up my system and put in a cd. I noticed something IMMEDIATELY, it is slow. The read rates from a normal cd are just slow. The benchmark results are listed below. The burn speeds are real nice though, the module we have here is a 20x one. The DVD-ROM speed is 12x, that's pretty good combined with a read speed of 40x. I know 40x doesn't sound that slow but to me it seems like it because I have something a good bit faster then that."
