budget/short term

Greg Brady, Amazon
24 January 2015
  • 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.

Reliable SSD

Chris M, Amazon
23 April 2012
  • 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.

Works great in Mac Mini

The Penguin "Techno Geek", Amazon

  • Summary: I ordered this for my Mac Mini. It uses less power, generates less heat, it's faster and much quieter than the factory Hitachi 5K250-80 80gb hard drive. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because it isn't as fast as the OCZ Agility or Vertex SSD's.

Good product, right price

Jason P. Baxter "Tech Guru", Amazon
17 June 2011
  • 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.

Wait for a sale...

Howard, Amazon

  • Summary: 1. This is prior generation technology - check read/write specs. 2. Current mid/top end price for SSD is $2/GB - this is not comparable to current generation SSD so you should not pay current generation prices for it. 3.

Good drive, but kind of small.

The Penguin "Techno Geek", Amazon
20 October 2010
  • Summary: I picked up a used one of these. Not sure how old it is, but it still works great. Faster than a 5400 rpm hard drive. Uses less power than other SSD drives, 1.0 watt active 0.3 watts idle. I'm using it in an external USB enclosure right now. WAY faster than any thumb drive I've ever used.

Running ESXi 4.1 with no problem

Amazon Customer, Amazon
15 July 2010
  • Summary: I am using these as OS drives on a pair of VMWare ESXi 4.1 servers. No issues. These are way larger than necessary for ESXi, but what can you do. Are they faster than the SATA drives I was using before? I don't notice a difference, honestly. They are quieter... more like silent.
