[外置硬碟] 2.5" External HD 全部牌子都3年保?

問問

2.5" External HD 係咪
全部牌子型號都3年保?

如果有任何特別例子唔係3年保,
無論多過或少過,
可以提示一下.....

Other than 3-yrs of warranty, it seems we should stick with transcend and a-data as far as 'true' SATA-USB controller is concerned.

I think its a kind of 50/50

we can get an adata 3tb (2.5" portable) at less than $1K, not bad

btw, we should notice that many of the adata portable hdds do not support sleep mode (inactivity in 5~10 mins).  In contrast, all or most of the transcend models do support such feature.

WD, Touro, Seagate external
support sleep mode?

if left never unplugged from PC or NAS,
no sleep mode over the time
could kill the HD much faster .........?

"WD, Touro, Seagate   external support sleep mode?"
No idea coz I don't have any of these models

"if left never unplugged from PC or NAS, no sleep mode over the time could kill the HD much faster .........?"
Can't tell.  However, common sense telling me, something not designed for non-stop operation, and we stress it to run at 7x24, might lead to premature failure.

I've two transcend 2tb and one adata 2tb.  All are permanently attached to (never unplugged from) NAS/Magic TV/PC.  As the adata does not support sleep mode, it cannot (should not) be attached to NAS/Magic TV.  Otherwise it will non-stop 'working' until the end of the world!

As my PC would power up for more than 10 hrs per day, the adata would then be non-stop 'working' for similar time.   Without unplugging the hdd, there is a work-around by ejecting the usb device in Win environment.   As such, it goes offline until next Win startup (not equivalent to sleep mode, just better than none!).

It seems transcend portable hdd is my real cup of tea!
