Better speeds and stats across the board by a better brand. $99 ($5 more than this slower model by a unreliable brand)
To be fair, 99 only gets you 500MB on the WD you linked. Almost double that if you want 1TB as this Centon has. If I’m spending that kind of , I’d get a Samsung Evo 970. That being said, you’re right about speeds and trust but this drive would prob be fine for use as a secondary drive for storing games and non-critical items.

Was cheaper yesterday.
