Warning! Defective Items are being shipped with July 2018 releases I ordered a hard disk and tested through the Crystal Disk benchmark. It was only giving 50% less speeds than specifications. I have a 5 yr old Samsung SSD with same operating system which was reading above 500MB/S for the sequential test. I have run the same test with another Samsung SSD 850 EVO, which also gave above 500MB/s. I made sure that all the parameters are same for different SSDs.I got a replacement disk from amazon and it turned to be defective as well. I tried one from Best Buy released in the same month and discovered the same. Samsung’s Quality testing has gone downhill and they should be ashamed of themselves for selling so many defective units.Before a person from Samsung replies to my comment, they should also note that I have already contacted Samsung and they said the issue can’t be fixed and to return the drive.

Think you need a new computer because yours is slow? It used to be that adding RAM was the easiest and cheapest way to speed up a slow computer. That never addressed the real bottleneck of a computer, which is the hard drive. I had a customer complaining that they probably needed a new computer even though theirs was only a little over a year old. Knowing that they had a standard platter-style hard drive, I suggested this. Boy is she glad that I did! Saved her hundreds of dollars on a new computer and likely thousands on lost time waiting for her computer to ‘compute’ as her entire business relies on her computer to make her money.

Works perfectly as an external boot drive for my Late 2012 iMac The hard drive in my Late 2012 iMac is starting to die. Since the hard drives in iMacs are not user accessible (at least not without major surgery), I decided to use an external drive as my boot and system drive. I bought this drive, and the HighPoint Dual-Bay Thunderbolt 10Gbps Storage Dock (RocketStor 5212) to house it. I put the drive in the HighPoint, plugged everything in, then…Booted to recovery mode (Command-R at boot chime).Reformatted the disk to HFS+ journaled (with GUID partition map).Reinstalled MacOS.Once MacOS was installed, I followed the prompts to migrate data from a Time Machine backup (Users, Documents, etc. I clicked all the options).Everything is up and running great! During the OS install process, the drive format was changed to APFS (instead of HFS+) since I’m running High Sierra.Lastly, I went into System Preferences and turned on FileVault (which is still running in the background and will probably take…
