The Good and Bad of SSD

Byron Chun, Amazon
30 December 2011
  • Summary: First the Bad: SSD drives are power sensitive. Don't pull them out, drop power suddenly, force reset, or otherwise cause a power spike on them. They get really screwy when that happens. They also do not work on all machines, even new ones.

  • Pros: Fast for it's size and if you know how to save space while installing windows, you won't need anything bigger
  • Cons: Can be really confusing when trying to install windows onto it and the software doesn't help with the process

Cheap SSD that works well in practice.

Nikhil Bysani, Amazon
5 March 2011
  • Summary: Given the rebate that came with, this SSD was ultra cheap and was still a SSD. SSD's in general are awesome and huge improvement to your computer experience. This one is not the best by a long shot, but will noticeably improve your computer performance after switching form harddrives.

SSD brings the snap back to your system

S. Mc, Amazon
5 March 2011
  • Summary: I picked one of these up on sale and bought an adapter to place it in the modular bay of my laptop. It's cheap, very fast compared to a mechanical hard drive and brings the snap back to opening apps etc.

Works Great....but why man, why?

Repairman Jack, Amazon
5 March 2011
  • Summary: The package came 2 DAYS EARLY!!! Product worked great and had no problems at all (or so far...). Very happy with that but laughed my a$$ off when I opened the box. The guy packaged it with ripped up printer paper and scotch tape! Kudos to you bro! BTW, this thing flies on USB 3.0
