Been awhile for an impression of Paragon, although I might mention
I've done well with Easeus for the most. Similar situation but with
larger green and black +Tbyte drives for $50 or $60 I began amassing
before prices corrected. Did have an issue, though, with the last one
just last week swapping out a 10-yr-old Seagate for a Samsung 1T
black, in laying in a somewhat difficult boot arbitrator from one of
the last older Dos versions of Hirems boot discs. But, to be expected
over some time and effort required to keep functionality in purpose
over a hodgepodge of means and specialties involved. 1T Samsung is
working (well, almost, that is) like a charm now. Like a computer I
can build. Given to just anyone (a non-specialist), I really do
resent what *some* people then expect of me once they come to sense by
vaguest inklings of what all it's capable. Quickly enough, I might
add. Don't get me wrong, though. Whenever I'm in a garage I'll
freely admit to the owner or person assessing charges I usually can
accomplish whatever is being done in five times their amount of time
with my 60gal. compressor at home. (At a reasonable expectation over
twice what I might pay myself in wages, yes?) Easeus is often on
sale, whatever and however that works, although as do many I'm sure it
follows fair come-on conventions in distributing a limited or
restricted functionality for potential customers to place value.
