Works on my home vmware server

J. Sundquist, Amazon
7 May 2012
  • Summary: I bought this drive to use as a boot drive for my vmware Vshpere 5 server that I built using an HP Pavilion PC. I was a bit worried since some other reviews report theirs dying over time, but since vmware doesn't hold any data other than OS files and wouldn't be hard to reinstall, I decided to give it a shot. Obviously, being an SSD, it is way faster, quieter and cooler than the legacy hard drive it replaced.

Great for running an OS for a NAS or other embedded system.

  • Summary: I ordered this to run my OS for my new NAS box and it works great. Low power and durability are what I was looking for. I also thought I was buying it used, but it came new in the package, so a little extra bonus there. No surprises = happy customer.

Great for a small Netbook XP-32 installation

  • Summary: SSDNow S100 16GB works great for a small Netbook XP-32 installaton. Fast reads (especially for 4K) gives great XP-32 performance. Somewhat slower writes has no slowing effect. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- CrystalDiskMark 3.0.1 (C) 2007-2010 hiyohiyo Crystal Dew World : [...

excellent boot drive (or system drive for small system)

Michael Andrew Streib, Amazon
17 March 2011
  • Summary: I won't use spinning disks anymore for boot drives now that mainline SSDs have hit the 60 dollar mark. They are ridiculously faster for boot, application loads, and well, everything. So much so that a slow processor and fast drive will be perceived faster than a machine with a faster processor and a spinning disk most of the time.
