I know that till now here at Igeekphone.com, we are speaking mainly for mobiles, tablets, smartwatches and various gadgets. But there are and other things that you can find and get at a very good price form the eshops that we mention here. During promotional time I took the decision to try and something else and for that reason I bought from Banggood a 120GB SSD HDD from Blitzwolf and a external case of 2.5 inch, just for my SATA SSD. The bad thing was that the case I bought, turned out to be non compatible with my Blitzwolf HDD, so after speaking with the customer’s support of Banggood for that, they send me an other, compatible this time, free of charge to replace my first order, and I really thank them for that. So I end up getting the BlitzWolf® BW-D1 120G 2.5 inch SATA3 Solid State Drive SSD Hard Disk and the ORICO 2599US3 HDD External Enclosure Tool Free 2.5 inch USB 3.0 Hard Drive Disk Box.
The SATA HDD will be used as a backup disk, despite the fact that they are not used mainly for this. I want to put inside valuable images and data, so this HDD won’t have much read/write. I have chosen Banggood because I have bought many times from there, it has a variety of products and at good prices. My choice, the BlitzWolf® BW-D1 120G 2.5 inch SATA3 Solid State Drive SSD Hard Disk, was done because I found it on promotion, very cheap and Blitzwolf is a well known company.
The SATA HDD came to me well protected in bubbles. In the package was a small black box which contains the HDD. This HDD is SATA III, with 6GB/s transfer rate, with 500MB/s read speed, featuring ECC, Wear leveling, TRIM, S.M.A.R.T and RAID Protection, controller from Marvell 88NV 1120, while there is also a 18 months guarantee. As I said I bought it on a promotion, with the final price to be only 44.99$. Inside the black box, except from the HDD, was a manual in English and the guarantee document, saying about the 18 months.
Now that I have a good SSD HDD, time to find an also very good external case. AS I told in the beginning, My first choice was incompatible, so with the help of the customers support from Banggood, they send me the right one and this was the ORICO 2599US3 HDD External Enclosure Tool Free 2.5 inch USB 3.0 Hard Drive Disk Box, e very beautiful case, that worked like a charm with the Blitzwolf SSD HDD.
The case opens very easily. Needs no screwdriver, to open and insert inside the SSD HDD. When keeping in hand you have a feeling of keeping something from velvet. The case all it has is a small light on top showing if it reads or writes. So, now that we have inserted the SSD HDD, it is time to work with it. On the case the only thing we see is a small light, showing if it is idle or doing something.
I have a Lenovo Laptop with Intel i3, and Windows 10 64bit.
The Blitzwold drive was recognized from the system without any problem. After seen at the Disk Management of Windows, all I had to do was just to Initialize the disk and format it. ( To initialize the disk, you press Windows key + X, from the menu that appears we choose Disk Management, right click on the left side of the area where the SSD HDD is and choose initialize) and after that we do a format to the drive. The whole process took me about 30sec!
So, after doing all these, I run some tests. The bad thing in the test is that my laptop has only USB 2.0 ports. Despite that, I was very impressed with the speed of the transfer and how Blitzwolf reacted. Check out some photos from the info I gathered.
As I said before, not used to ssd speeds, I’m really thrilled.
So, if you have some SSD HDD spare or looking to buy a spare HDD to use it as an external hard disk, check my proposal, I’m sure you gonna like it. The BlitzWolf® BW-D1 120G 2.5 inch SATA3 Solid State Drive SSD Hard Disk you can find it at Banggood at 59.99$, but if you use the coupon code 10bwssd, the price will drop down to 44.99$! As for the case ORICO 2599US3 HDD External Enclosure Tool Free 2.5 inch USB 3.0 Hard Drive Disk Box, you can get it for as low as 9.99$! I’m waiting for your impressions also!
