Summary: I don't think it is unreasonable to expect from an SSD that, at the very least, a power outage (not surge, but outage) would not completely kill the drive. File corruption due to interrupted writes? Fine. Bad sectors or bricked drives? Absolutely unacceptable, and generally manufacturers avoid this.
Pros: Decent performance; boot times faster than 7200 RPM HDD (given other reviews, I think I lucked out in this area), decent write times.
Cons: This was an underperforming drive for an SSD, in my experience, but was still better than the average HDD. Take that with a grain of salt, because I see other reviews decrying performance. Like other users, mine died. It died far, far too soon. It was running as an OS drive for a Linux server, wi...
Summary: Using it on a Security Camera NVR as just an OS drive. Bought it because SSD's use very little power and are supposed to last for a million of hours especially if it's read intensive. Apparently not so much with this one. I'll be buying a better reviewed SSD as a replacement
Pros: Low Power Usage
Cons: Tons of bad sectors after 1yr of use as an OS drive. Was a poor performer for writes AND reads. Oddly... the SMART data on drive has a static (bad) value for Temperature which caused my NVR software to shutdown for overheat protection. (That was fun to figure out).
Summary: First off let me say that I have a lot of experience with SSD's in the last few months I have bought about 10 ranging from 60 to 480gigs. I bought this drive for a relatively simple embed project using an Intel Atom system.
Pros: cost.. if that can be called a pro for something that is almost worthless
Cons: Very very slow, stutteres, slower than a harddrive.
Summary: This was my first and last SSD, it is not as fast as they advertise. Then I find out I cant even get all the windows updates because it is to small. I contact customer support to find out if I can use the thing for cashe and the tell me "NO" and that's it.
Pros: Nune so far
Cons: Slow speed (it is the same speed as my 7200rpm Drive) To small for normal boot drive(maybe for a laptop but not a desktop with windows 7) Cant be use as a cache drive customer support that dues not care $50 paperweight
