Summary: I purchased this from "The Price Pros" and it was everything I had hoped for. There was a review posted that said used hardware was being sold as new. I pulled the smart drive information and the cycle on hours were 33. I figure it was from burning the drive in after manufacturing. Maybe I got lucky and got a new drive from a quality vendor. The drive has worked perfectly.
Summary: It's very fast. It is very nearly totally silent. I have only noticed it to make noise once (which makes little sense) when it turned hibernate back on.. It's very small amount of space. If you are going to load Vista on this drive you will likely have to give up hibernate feature. I have 6GB of RAM after upgrading and 6GB of 32GB drive is too dear a price to pay for hibernating.
Summary: The biggest complaint people seem to have had about this drive is the price and capacity. Truth be told, the price is absolutely worth it. How many other components in your system can you migrate to your next system? This is one of those components. You probably invested hundreds of dollars into your RAM and CPU hoping your computer would be faster, perhaps you even setup RAID, but the fact is, whatever you did to upgrade your computer, it's potential is going to waste...
Summary: I got a couple of these to test and use in specific applications. Also, for kicks, I tried to install in a Dell laptop drive bay and found the ssd was too thick...but I digress. I'm using one of these in a Clark Connect firewall as a dedicated Squid cache, and the performance is beyond expectations. I'll probably raid two of these for a higher use Squid I'm putting together later this year in a higher use part of our infrastructure.
Summary: We got two of these to replace our Iram ram drives which we have been using for 3 years as our network drive. Essentially we got these to use as ram in a box. I had just two things to note here that I think are important. First, after 4 months, one of these drives failed. Unlike a hard drive, there isnt anyone to go to that I know of to recover the data. It just failed right in the middle of the day under normal conditions.
Summary: I've been using one of these for about 6 months now and I must say it's amazing. The snappiness of applications on starting up is fantastic. It is a bit of a pain to have to offload a lot of things to slower storage, but it's made development on this system a breeze! I'd give it 4.5 stars just because of the price, but otherwise it's been good to me.
Summary: Acheté en Août 2009, c'est à dire il y a 4 ans. Il fait toujours 230 Mo/S lecture ET écriture après avoir désactivé le AHCI sur ma carte mère qui le limitait à environs 160 Mo/s en lecture / écriture. J'ai deux disques sur mon PC portable, sur celui-ci j'ai Windows et les softs, sur l'autre les données. Le deuxième disque a été remplacé plusieurs fois pour prendre plus gros, pas le SSD !
Summary: Depuis que je l'ai installé sur mon portable HP dv4, je n'entends même plus le ventilo.....silence total,et froid, j'ai l'impression des fois qu'il est arrété,et,avec seven, c'est "un avion" silencieux. A acheter les oreilles ouvertes(pour écouter si il marche). Merci à l'Amazony team pour sa vitesse.
