Kingston A400 120gb
WD Blue 1tb 2.5" 9.5mm hard disk

I was never happy with performance (came w/ 1tb 5400 WD Blue drive), so I bought a Kingston A400 SSD and a Highfine Universal Caddy.

However, the 1tb drive does not seem to be working correctly in the caddy. It works fine installed in the main disk area of the laptop, and in my external hard drive enclosure. I've formatted, formatted again, and did a 18 hour wipe of the drive (fill in all ones, then zeros, etc), but to no luck.

Weirdest part of the issue, is everything goes smooth after a format, but once data is written the drive is stuck at 100%[strike] till I restart[/strike]*. My really old Hitachi 320gb drive works fine. Other amazon reviews say 1tb drives work fine for them.

*It still happens after a restart. I have to re-format to stop it.
