Great OS Drive

Chris G., Newegg
29 December 2014
  • Summary: Great deal from a great manufacturer.
  • Pros: This drive is great for the price, Reliable and really can perform for an OS drive. I have owned mine for 4+ years and bought it from our local shop. However I feel the review on here would be helpful. They update their firmware quite often and keep it up to date.
  • Cons: I did have my first one fail. However it was replaced and ran 100% since then. It failed on the first day with such a minor error that I almost didnt find it.

About 50 of these ordered thus far and we are getting more

TIGRAN V., Newegg
13 March 2014
  • Summary: We are an IT firm and have been selling these in our standard builds for a few months now. Probably got ~50 or so out in machines at this point. Prior to this we used a 60GB Mushkin drive that had about a 2% DOA rate and 4% failure rate within a year.
  • Pros: High Speed. Good price compared to others
  • Cons: None really. Would certainly like them to be cheaper still.

It Died

Rudy A., Newegg
26 January 2014
  • Summary: I have very good things to say about SSD's, however I'm sticking with Mechanical Drives until a better manufacturer releases a Larger Capacity SSD at affordable prices, and no 300 for an SSD is not affordable for the masses.
  • Pros: Very Fast, taught me the wonders of SSD's
  • Cons: Firmware Upgrades are a joke, process seems simple enough but nothing really happens. It Died, loading new Operating System on it, then it died. BIOS will not pick it up, tried it on another computer.....yep its dead.

bad luck

Nick P., Newegg
13 October 2013
  • Pros: low price
  • Cons: Had it for little over a year. When alive it was working good. The first time it died after six months and it was replaced under warranty. The second time died after 3 months and also replaced under warranty. I did not want to wait third time and sold the replacement on e-bay. Will not buy again ...

Great upgrade to office machines

IT D., Newegg
15 July 2013
  • Summary: This is a great upgrade to any machine running on a 5400/7200 RPM machine. OS loads in about 6 seconds ready to use. Most apps open instantly. My clients love the speed increase. Combine with a cheap mobo/cpu and you have a really good business machine on the cheap.
  • Pros: Speed, cost
  • Cons: cost per GB is still higher then I like

Great drive, if a little small

Kyle E., Newegg
1 May 2013
  • Summary: Overall, a great drive, just a little smaller than I needed it. Not going to downvote it for that though, because that is not the fault of the drive. If you know that 60Gb is going to be enough for you, then absolutely buy this drive, it's a fantastic product and a great deal.
  • Pros: I bought this drive as a boot drive and it does the job perfectly. I am coming from a laptop with a hybrid HDD/SSD, and this blows it out of the park. Install was flawless and it took the OS without a problem. For it to go from cold to fully running is about 15 seconds, and that's not an exaggera...
  • Cons: This was my first time running a separate drive for my OS vs, having everything run off of the C drive. As such, I wasn't sure how much space I would need and tried to save a few bucks by going smaller. Keep in mind that you are going to need space for all your system files and the other little t...

update from 7/22/12

donald s., Newegg
12 February 2013
  • Summary: Lots of people including my self are to eager to blame a new part as being bad instead of the system as a whole and hoe each component interacts.I have only bought ADATA's SSD's since then and never a problem I couldnt resolve by total system adjustments.The ADATA SSD always worked,but was allways...
  • Pros: see old post still not one single problem since 7/22/2012
  • Cons: none,just make sure your system is right,I blamed the drive when really it was my bios.
