  • Summary: Great drive for the price. Very fast. Great for the OS drive on my file server. I use this for the OS only as it will not hold much.

budget/short term

Greg Brady, Amazon

  • Summary: Fast when working but unfortunately it has a short lifespan of about 18 months. All three I've purchased stopped at about 18 months. Do not use for backing up, unreliable for data backups.

Good product, right price

Jason P. Baxter, Amazon
31 July 2010
  • Summary: Product works great for my Mini PC. I am using it with a Intel Atom N270 motherboard just for a Music server tied to Casatunes. My music library is pulling from a QNAP TS-212 therefore this SSD is only being used for operating and Casatunes software. Works great with fast boot times.

Was Defective

afman, Amazon
31 July 2010
  • Summary: I'm not sure if this was just my product or if this is typical but I originally bought the Onyx to put Ubuntu on a separate drive rather than having both Windows and Linux residing on the same drive different partitions. It was trouble from the start. It had several write errors.

Works great for me.

Nick, Amazon
31 July 2010
  • Summary: Have two of these, one is a home cinema computer and the other in an aging laptop. Has increased the cinema computer's boot-up speed drastically. Is quick all around after it's booted up, too. A big difference on the laptop, too.

Reliable SSD

Chris M, Amazon
31 July 2010
  • Summary: I have several of these in production and they are pretty fast for the price and have been reliable. I lost one after about 7 months, but I believe that was due to the power outages I was having when my UPS could not hold the load.

Very happy

sbs, Amazon
31 July 2010
  • Summary: I have had this SSD in my laptop for about 6 months now. When I was shopping for an SSD my priorities in order were: - power consumption - price - speed I did a lot of research and decided that this model was a good value in terms of low power and high speed for the buck.

Perfect for budget PC builds!

Andres, Amazon
31 July 2010
  • Summary: I bought this for my new budget build and it's amazing. Not as fast as my Samsung 256 GB SSD in my laptop, but perfect for a main OS drive. I was able to install Windows 7 64 OEM and still had 8GB of free space left. Awesome little drive for the price.
