  1. Quite simply, the fact that 3 years or so ago XPG marketed an 8200 PRO drive that was currently impressive in its performance is no basis for tapping into the rest of their products, and it makes no sense when it comes to testing latest drives from the same brand. If you watched the review I attached things would be much more than a reservation, what they are doing right now is close to being called a scam, or being deceived. Because not only do they release multiple editions of the same product without detailing the differences between them but in practice to save costs they incorporate inferior components that affect the drive's performance relative to the reviews consumers were exposed to when launching the product. That is, they first create a certain consciousness and then ride on that reputation and exploit it in a way that is difficult to define as fair.
  2. Let's start with the fact that in principle XPG is nothing more than a sticker, they are not manufacturers or developers of anything, they do what many companies in the field like TEAMGROUP, PNY, and others do, branding "their" product that is made up entirely of components they do not manufacture or develop. A selection of manufacturers what to incorporate on the electrical circuit and marketers under an independent brand. So it is true that they had at least one "product" that scorched the headlines and proved an even more impressive performance than some successful and well-known companies, but that still does not make them a reliable company or have reliable principles accepted by any standards. What sets XPG (A-DATA) apart from other sticker companies is a policy of product reliability and transparency of what they market under the officially declared product compared to what the consumer gets at the end. And they are not the only ones among these marketers who use tricks that the consumer should not swallow if he knew what he was being fed.
  3. +1, the cooling and case are outrageously expensive, there is no justification for that. You can cut NIS 1000 from the price without losing anything from the performance. It is better to invest in other components like a more advanced processor and SSD in the latest technology. It was also advisable to give up XPG on the disk and take a more reliable brand, including why not upgrade to a disk in a 4.0 generation PCI interface, like WD's SN850 with a capacity of 500GB. But if you decide on an Intel ** processor, you can save about 200 NIS, if you check the sales area of ​​the forum. (Proper disclosure, the processor is offered for sale by, .... I have no connection to any stores or commercial business in the field ** Note: Choosing a tenth-generation Intel processor drops the advantage of a 4.0 generation SSD because it is not supported by this generation processors. Alternatively, the recommended Hynix P31 disk has probably the highest cost / benefit ratio in the PCI-3.0 generation, its performance is superior to the Samsung 970+ in almost every parameter and so is the manufacturer's stated lifespan. It will save about a hundred shekels more, or it might be worth considering a 1T disk in such a case.
  4. Similar to the previous response it is difficult to give an informed answer without getting additional vital information. Like, what motherboard is installed in the computer today, and for what uses or purpose is the upgrade intended. In principle, in order to get USB3.1-C and WiFi6 connectivity, it is enough to add expansion cards at a cost that does not exceed 300 NIS. It is possible that the addition of an SSD disk in the M.2 interface at an additional cost of about 400 NIS can upgrade performance considerably. However, it is not possible to verify that such a disk is compatible with the current system without knowing which motherboard it is. Not necessarily, speed depends on many variables, from factors like accumulated dust, to hardware problems or limitations and problems with the various installations on the computer. (There is also a question concerning the subjective sense of speed compared to a modern computer in which the technological changes that have taken place over the years in relation to the computer from previous years have been assimilated. That is, the feeling that something is not fast may have been significantly affected.)

  7. I know I did not go into great detail so as not to tire the readers. USB3.1 2nd generation or in its current official name USB3.2 has existed for a long time and in the tests I conducted this hardware was also included and yet despite the theoretical potential this was not reflected in the improvement results in cases where it was minor. During all the months that the drive was in my possession I conducted such tests at every opportunity where I was under a system with state-of-the-art hardware different from the previous specifications. In almost all tests the results were very dismal on the order of tens of individual megabytes, with parallel devices in the same systems and in the same ports achieving incomparably superior performance. The "best" results I was able to produce were precisely on top of a system with an NEC USB3.0 chip, where an "impressive" result of 205 MB was achieved. The last tests I performed about two weeks ago were performed on a state-of-the-art laptop - a tenth-generation Intel processor with built-in USB3.2 support, a clean 2004-WIN10 system with the latest Intel drivers, with all power-saving settings disabled and cached. Also in this test despite the improvement the results reached 400 megabytes, and I repeated the tests over and over again with 3 different programs. I was not satisfied with static tests, I also tried regular use that included a variety of copying and writing operations, in all of them the performance was so appalling that it was less than a generic flash drive. Copying 250GB of MP3s took over 6.5 hours, with most of the writing time being around 1800K, just to illustrate. It is very possible that the specific device I have is not working, or the cables are not working, although I checked with the 2 cables that came with the drive in C and A configuration, but I am quite skeptical that this is the reason, the drive heats up very soon and it is probably a combination of heat and poor design or combination Of components that are not at the required level. I can direct readers to review on Amazon with screenshots of the tests from about a year ago, things speak for themselves. Very disappointing and a pity. In general, the lack of uniformity in the standard of USB3 and the lack of a body that confirms the variety of hardware in the field creates a huge night of scams of all possible types. The introduction of high-speed cargo and compatible cabling in parallel with various hubs have added countless problems, and it is no longer possible to discern what really meets the standard and what does not. And as far as cables are concerned there 90 percent are not at all designed to meet the hardware requirements. A thorough examination of this broad issue has been required for a long time, but measures are needed because, as mentioned, due to the huge variety, in order to cover the variety of aspects in the review, a great deal of equipment needs to be purchased. There are some good reviews and comparisons on hubs, but no one dares to get into the issue of shackles where there is complete chaos.
  8. Although the Rocket Nano model looks very cool, I recommend anyone who does not want to be discouraged to get away from this drive. The drive suffers from severe delays, a dramatic drop in performance within minutes of starting use, and is very far from scratching the stated speeds. I did many tests on a wide range of computers in the variety of possible configurations in USB3.0 + USN3.1, in no case did the speed exceed 400MB / S. No matter which operating system and drivers, all tests failed without exception. By the way, the company's service does not meet accepted standards either, they only responded after I published a negative review of their service, but then they completely ignored further inquiries.
