Top critical review
Two drives DOA.
Reviewed in the United States on September 14, 2020
Be careful when purchasing this, I ordered two due to the price and the high level of positive reviews over more reputable companies such as PNY, Crucial, or WD. Against my better judgment, I purchased two and lightning struck twice. Both drives were DOA. At first, I thought it was my adapter so I purchased new adapters, but when they both didn't get recognized, I threw the drives that these were supposed to replace into the new adapters and it popped right up. I then took these two drives to four different stations: Two windows laptops that immediately threw errors "The request failed due to a fatal device hardware error" and then over to two Macs where they didn't even show up in the disk utility. Perhaps I just got the two bad apples of the bunch, but I would think twice, they are this cheap for a reason. Both are being returned to Amazon. Thankfully, the return process was quick and easy.
