Summary: Replaced the 24 GB mSATA drive on my new Acer V7. Having an SSD on my desktop computer, I could not live without one in my laptop! This mSATA allowed me to keep my HDD. Transferred windows 7 to the mSATA. I'm a happy camper now!
Pros: Great speed. Extremely small size. Low power usage. Good price when on sale.
Summary: This is an excellent mSATA ssd. Allowed me to replace the small 32GB mSATA drive dell provided on the Inspiron 15R laptop with something that can easily fit windows and all the programs I use. Provide 10% overprovision, and these will last forever.
Summary: Using as an accelerator in a Drobo 5D. So far performance and reliability have been 100%. Install and configuration was a simple insert and it was automatically recognized. Looking forward to having it as part of my setup.
Pros: Nice price for the nice large size in this form factor...
Summary: Installed as boot drive in place of 32GB cache in my laptop to retain the 1TB storage drive. Works flawlessly, noticeably better performance over stock cache ssd/boot hdd. Worth the frustration of having to completely disassemble my days old laptop (Dell Inspiron 15R SE) to install it.
Pros: Very large capacity for such a tiny footprint., Fast r/w speeds., Reasonably priced.
Cons: None I can think of over a period of 30 days use.
Summary: This drive is fantastic for use in new laptops with mSata slots. Since it plugs into an mSata slot you don't need to replace your existing hard drive and make the decision between speed or storage. I installed the operating system on this drive and kept the 750GB drive that came with my laptop for data. The installation of this drive would have been very easy except for the fact that they do not include the screw required to hold the drive in place.
Pros: Fast, Great for new laptops with mSata slots
Summary: Bought this for my DROBO mini... Which runs like a bat out of hell; i keep reading people have issues with DROBO mini performance and noticed they tended to be people who hadn't gone the SSD route so i thought i'd bite the bullet and get one straight away. I've not tested it without it, but my word, it certainly runs slick with it!!
Summary: I bought this product to uses as a cache drive for my dell inspiron 7520 and it works like a dream, made the system much quicker and more responsive. Mine came with the screw needed, unlike for some others.
