Good drive the price. Worth every penny, so far.

Summary: This is a solid and relatively fast drive. There are faster SSDs on the market but for the price this one gets the job done. I have one in my personal gaming machine at home and one in the workstation I maintain for my work. If you can afford it get the biggest SSD you can afford. I would like 512 GB but the price to storage just wasn't there at the time.
Very good performance, but somewhat slow to install

Summary: Bought to replace the 80GB/7200RPM drive in my recently-bought Dell Latitude 630 laptop running Windows 7. I like the computer, but one never knows how much life is left in a hard disk in any used machine, so I planned to replace it. Indeed, wags divide hard drives into two categories: Those which have failed, and those which WILL fail. They are the most trouble-prone component in most home computers. After research, I decided this SSD was the one to use.
Summary: We've only had the 128GB SSD installed for a few weeks. Our Laptop used to take 56 seconds to boot up and now it takes 13 seconds. I loaded an SSD disk monitor program and the drive appears to be logging lots of correctable errors which is a concern. Installation was simple as we just cloned our old one across.
Summary: ***If i could i'd probably give it 3.5 stars. Pros: 3x my hdd speed, 2-5 sec shorter boot time silent Cons: *Using CrystalDiskMark, it achieved an average read of 475 MB/s read vs the claimed 550 and only about 300 write. It could also be that the benchmarking software is crap. Who knows? *Also, the holes in the 3.5 bracket mount didn't fit with my case (CM storm enforcer).
Summary: I installed the drive but had problems getting it to be recognised by the computer. I did eventually. The software links that they give you aren't the best. If you want to transfer the operating system over, their zip software was supposed to be exe, according to the software folks. I had a lot problems transfering the operating system to the new drive. This isn't the fault of the drive.
Good Basic SSD...but for full speed it needs to be used on Linux

Summary: I got this SSD somewhere else online and posted a review back when I got it. I've had this drive about 7 months and can say I've gotten some use out of it. I use it for Multi-Distro Linux installs....i.e....I install a lot of Linux OS's on this drive for fun...for testing. Back when I got this drive I could only run a read test to see what the speeds would be on Linux but recently I figured out how to use Gnome Disk Utility to benchmark the whole drive.
