Summary: It was good while it lasted. Once you get a SSD going back to a spinning disk drive is painful. I have an OS loaded on a conventional drive until I get a new SSD and it feels like going back to the 90s and using 56k.
Pros: - Fast enough. Never ran a speed test, but I never experienced a slowdown (while it was working fine) due to the SSD - Fairly priced among drives - All the other benefits of having an SSD
Cons: - Started to fail after 9-12 months of use. Had to reformat once, worked a little better, problems arose again. - 2 years in, its finally given up completely. Can't install a new OS on it. - Attempted to look for new drivers/firmware (maybe that could be the issue) but learned two things: 1) Your...
Summary: This SSD performs as it was advertised, however it was a major let down that the pins used to connect the 3.5" adaptor did NOT fit through the holes. This SSD also does not work with clips used to secure the SATA 3 cable
Pros: Capable SSD
Cons: issues with the included 2.5" to 3.5", does not support lock-clip for the SATA3 cable
Summary: I bought two of these and they have really performed extremely well. My one and only issue is not about their performance, however, but a lack of forethought on the part of the manufacturer involving how to mount these into a computer. The screws that came with the SSD were MAYBE 1/8" long.
Summary: Purchased a few of the 128GB SX900 drives, from NCIX and other stores, all have worked flawlessly, couldn't be happier with them. However, today is now the second 256GB SX900 drive that has died inexplicably. Completely dead, BIOS sees nothing in each case.
Pros: Great Cost/Performance Ratio
Cons: Limited RMA support, No RAISE, Dead within 6 months of intermittent use
Summary: My drive came with a cracked sata tab, and was preinstalled with the grub bootloader. Clearly someone else's RMA got repackaged without being wiped. I would have been fine with that had it not a cracked tab.
Summary: First drive was DOA, luckily I had another computer in house to verify it was dead, but I lost a whole day trying to make it work. Cloning software would not work on this drive, had to do a fresh install. Last 2 ssd I purchased did not have this problem.
Pros: Good price for a 256gb drive.
Cons: First drive was DOA, took a whole day of troubleshooting to confirm it was dead. Included cloning software would not work.
Summary: Picked this yesterday and was able to install it with no problems. The Acronis software worked well but you need to download and activate it before you can use it. It is good enough to clone your old drive and will get you going but it is not a full version.
Pros: Easy installation, great price.
Cons: Desktop model, no enclosure for your old hdd.
Summary: Note: Since I bought this SSD in-store, NCIX does not allow 1 star ratings (unless you buy online). But my true rating of this SSD is 1 star! The first day I used this SSD, it was amazing. It was incredibly fast.
Pros: Fast, and that's about it.
Cons: Unreliable, BSODs, Lockups, Freezes, Not able to Boot, Corrupted Data, Inaccessible locations on the SSD.
