  • Summary: Newer purchase ADATA SSD again.
  • Pros: Worked for a while
  • Cons: Installed in a computer that was started for one day each month. Worked fine for a year. Then we where lucky to get the drive to work for 1 to 2 minutes and then freeze. Now it is dead, with less than 100 hours on it.

Didn't last.

  • Summary: Gave me 5 good years and then crapped the bed yesterday. Controller apparently died as it no longer shows upas a drive with any interface . Sort of painful since it was the OS. The 1T drive sitting next to it is still kicking along and it got most of the work.

Nice upgrade

Edward S., Newegg

  • Pros: Fast enough. Older technology but still viable. No issues or problems. Just be sure BIOS is set to AHCI for smooth results not IDE.
  • Cons: The firmware updater is picky as all if the SSD is your boot drive and I could never get it to run.

  • Pros: FAST Cheapest I can find ($150 at time of purchase) Worked out of the box on two seperate systems. No firmware worries SATA II compatible Mounting hardware
  • Cons: Acronis software is OLD

  • Summary: I went and bought 120gb Intel and a 256 corsair
  • Pros: came with a Bizlink connector so you could turn any SSD into a huge flash drive
