extremely slow write speed, slow read speed

 

This was the first Asus product I have ever ordered. I've built quite a few custom computers, and have always tried to stay with brands and companies that I have had good luck with. Well Asus has a huge name, so I figured I'd give it a try. Needless to...

Price

Have to give at least 1 star ; Grinding noises on one drive as soon as it was installed ; Loud when loading/reading a disc. Purchased 2 drives, and both have issues ; Surprisingly enough, the drive that made the less noise, was the first to fail
