I have been using Transcend StoreJet 25S3 2.5″ SSD/HDD Enclosure with Seagate 500GB 5400RPM HDD on Asus RT-AC68U for 2 years. Didn’t care to review it as 5400RPM HDD does not have the chance to push its limit until now. Yup, 480GB Kingston SSDNow UV400 SSD should be able to test its SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface with UASP support. Is StoreJet 25S3 perfect as SSD enclosure? Let’s find out…


Want a docking station that can support both two 2.5” and 3.5” SATA hard drives at the same time? I have one to introduce you.

Always backup all your important files. Why? You will regret when your hard drive is going down… One of my hard drives failed me. And the operating system was resided on it. There are several symptoms of a hard drive failure. They are the warning sign to inform you to change a new hard drive. Well, I was getting failed to access files issue and very slow when reading them. And frequent Windows system freezes. No high-pitched whining or loud clicking sound yet. And failed to boot into Windows after few days when this symptoms occurred.


Yeah… I received my defective Seagate hard drive replacement after 3 days I returned it through RMA. It was sent from Singapore. The hard drive was labeled as certified repaired drive. Hmm… A common question came to my mind ~ should I use Seagate certified repaired hard drive? Anyway, I benchmark it. And the result looks promising. Hopefully, it can perform for years.

It is time to diagnostic hard drive if you discover these hard drive failure symptoms. Some of the hard drive issue might be caused by software, therefore a hard drive diagnostic tool software is needed to determine the condition of the disk drive. Most of the hard drive companies like Seagate, Western Digital (WD) and SAMSUNG need you to check your hard drive condition with their own hard drive diagnostic tool before sending faulty hard drive for replacement (if still under warranty).
