John K., Amazon
21 January 2015
  • Summary: When I installed this hard drive my boot time dropped from 1 minute 48 seconds to 58 seconds and my shutdown tome from 24 seconds to 11 seconds. All of this with XP as the OS and a computer that is 8 Years old. It is my garage computer so it only is used to surf the web when I am working on something. One other area where you can really tell a difference is the amount of time it takes to open a new application. It takes what is almost a boat anchor and makes it livable.

This drive works very well.

JED, Amazon

  • Summary: My old C: Drive on my Windows pc kept running out of space. Every time I loaded up a new version of Windows, it would save the old version as a .old file, taking up tens of gb. By the time I got to Windows 10 Technical Preview, I had to upgrade to this drive. In order to qualify for Win 10, you've got to be ok with starting all over with your C: drive from DiskPart and Format to loading Win 7.1 from original dvd, downloading hundreds of updates before inserting the Win...

Best Bang for The Buck

  • Summary: Installed two of these and I am very happy with the performance. Best bang for the buck if your PC already has 4 Gigs of RAM but does not have a SSD.

Nathan Koike, Amazon
9 December 2014
  • Summary: There are a couple things that I have to say. The first is that I am a light-medium gamer playing League of Legends(horrible community)and DotA2(horrible players) for upwards of four hours. The seconds is that I play on a laptop. I have bought two of these SSD's because they fit in a laptop, they are fast, they are reliable, and they work. The last three reasons are the most important.

Want to see me run to the top of that mountain and back? Want to see me do it again?

  • Summary: My OS never loaded so fast in my entire life. From Windows platform, shutting down, rebooting, going through BIOS Screen, logging back in and starting up my programs takes approximately 40 seconds. Compared to my 5 minute loading time on my laptop this is like the flash versus a snail.

Quite nice

John L., Amazon
6 December 2014
  • Summary: Using this to host Virtual machines and it works beautifully. It can query very quickly, while still keeping cool. I got this because I had researched these drives to be some of the most reliable over time. Closest you can get to business class production without paying the premium.

Worth it for raid

ABUSIV3, Amazon
3 December 2014
  • Summary: bought the bare 120gb ... FANTASTIC price. and what are people talking about fitment? i have a corsair carbide air 540 and i had zero issue placing these in my ssd cage. they come with a small form factor spacer that fills the gap to a standard ssd anyway. now my intel 730 ssd, that does not have the spacer and jiggles around in my ssd cage, but who cares- THEY ARE SSD.
