  • Summary: Caught this bad boy on sale on Microsoft's website a few months back for around $120.00 shipped (that is not a typo.) Best purchase I have ever made. Boot time to windows is less then 13 seconds (this is from power on to desktop and all services loaded.

Failed after 3.5 years of use

  • Pros: Worked great right up to the last time it booted.

  • Pros: Hands down adding a SSD for your OS drive is the best speed improvement for any PC with 8GB of RAM of more. You can see and feel the difference it is night & day major speed improvement. SSD speeds, stable, 4 years later still going strong! Came with cloning software & mounting tray, housing for ...

  • Summary: Made my 3 year old Dell work like a brand new computer again. IMHO, the best bang for the buck that I have ever received on a computer upgrade. Also love the external enclosure that made cloning the drive a snap.

I think I won't trust an ssd again. It's expensive and life time too short. Who knows when your data is lost.
