Speed and work
After 6 months of use, I can mention the complete absence of problems with this device, there is only one caveat: every time you have to turn on and off the power manually. It does not track the computer via USB and does not automatically switch.
I got a read speed of 35Mb per second and a write speed of about 26-27 Mbit / sec, it is a normal result.
In regular stores are sold, as a rule, branded products and much more. Although, according to my personal experience, there are no advantages except for local warranty is not added.
You can try to find on the radio, but certainly always cheaper on Aliexpress .
