Brilliant SSD by Arron
In comparison to other SSDs this 1TB SSD is simply the best both price performance wise in terms of value and performance with it's given capacity.
From running CrystalDiskMark benchmark I found that this SSD was slightly superior to my Samsung 840 256GB SSD and both SSDs had the lastest firmware updates.
I have brought two of these where internally one is used for storing games whereas I put the other SSD into a LaCie external HDD enclosure (with USB 3 and Thunderbolt ports and is powered when connected through either port) which was originally fitted with a Samsung M8 1TB HDD (2.5), Rev B (in stock configuration).
Both configurations have worked well with full stability from internal 1TB SSD when playing games (it's seperate to main SSD with OS installed on) and I have been getting maximum USB 3 speed (roughly 300MB/s on average) with the SSD in the LaCie enclosure. I have not personally seen average transfer speeds with Thunderbolt as my PC does not have Thunderbolt technology, but I know my external SSD does detect and functions normally with Macs with Thunderbolt ports.
All in all this SSD is good as both a main OS drive and also as storage where another SSD is being used for OS for particular purpose, and is worth it's price given it's an SSD with good performance.
A magnetic HDD would be better for overall storage though with all factors consider, especially if you get a HDD which has 3TB capacity or more.
