Frequently Asked Questions

  • What the purpose of the acronis software is?

    The Acronis software included with the drive is for cloning your old drive to the new.

  • How does this compare to the Samsung 850? Or 950?

    The CS1311 is faster than the 850 EVO on normal day to day tasks, but if you use the SSD for more data intensive tasks, the 850 EVO will be a more consistent performer. The 950 PRO is a different animal. It uses PCIe NVMe which is a different form factor and interface. This technology is much faster than SATA III.

  • Does it come with the data cable for Acronis Data Migration software?

    This was just a plain drive no cables were included.
