At first I was very concerned I received a fake product because the drive feels like an empty case with only a tiny bit of weight at the end with the connections. I was worried that it was some dodgy case with a flash drive taped inside. I installed it and did some tests and the drive appears in the Crucial S.M.A.R.T. scan as legit and the benchmark tests I did are in the region of the expected read and write speeds. So I think this is good?
