Summary: First time user for ssd drive. I was looking to buy one of those drive for long time. Impressive booting performance on my ubuntu machine. I was surprise by the weight of this little an tiny drive. performances are very good for my usage.
Summary: This drive is insanely fast. Purchased to replace a laptop hard drive, and it changed the windows 7 boot time to about 7 seconds. Consistent transfer speed R/W average is about 200Mb/s. If you're transferring to/from a USB or network, you won't get the speed out of it though.
Summary: I got this drive to upgrade a small slow hard drive in an old netbook I am giving my daughter. I couldn't give her something that is old and slow so this was just the ticket for it. Sped up the Lenovo S10 to a significant degree as the hard disc drive was its choke point. Anyway, the drive was installed and Windows 7 loaded with no issues. I've used it quite a bit over the last three weeks and it has been rock solid stable.
Pros: Fast and reliable so far, Comes with 3.5" adapter
Summary: It's a good drive, if you get it to work. Overall I'm going to give this drive 4 stars. Reasons: I would see how this would be non user friendly during installation. It's far too small in capacity; quite frankly I'm having a hard time understanding why I only got a 120GB version. Seriously people get 240GB or larger you will thank me later! OS + Drivers + Necessary programs already adds up to about 40~50GB out of the 111GB.
Pros: FAST!, Cheap! 85$ post rebate.
Cons: Setup was a pain/BSoD., Locks up/Freezes somewhat., Small Capacity.
Summary: this SSD was on sale for $80 and I jumped on the opportunity to finally get a SSD hard drive for my desktop. I tried the Hard drive as a internal drive in the PBO core media player, but found that the playback and read wasn't that better than using a USB external hard drive. But overall, my computer is booting up pretty fast now, more like under a minute.
Pros: great price for great speed and decent performance for a SSD, no problems so far.
Cons: wish the hard drive space was bigger, but will buy a larger one in the future.
