Buggy but finnaly works

James C., Newegg
26 June 2013
  • Summary: Games load 5x faster especially when it comes to BF3 or CS:GO...boot times have also sped up dramatically...im loving it now, but at the start i almost trashed it for bieng so unstable with my raptor and multiple drives for dual boots.
  • Pros: It works after several re-formats...quite good actually. boot times are quicker, and games load faster, don't even notice it was a hassle to install once you install correctly.
  • Cons: Its EXTREMELY FAIL if you don't plug this into the correct SATA port. Place into the second slot after your big TB hard drive...i tested it with my raptor and it blue screened constantly had to re-install windows about 8 times where i said screw it I'm just going to install it on my TB Cadaviar black and now its running flawless.

My First SSD

Justin J., Newegg
28 March 2013
  • Summary: I do not regret purchasing this drive, although to use the included Dataplex software I would have to reformat my OS drive from .gpt to .mbr (which includes wiping all the data and reinstalling OS). Luckily, I was able to find a similar software that works great with this drive. eBoostr allowed me to use this drive to help speed up my boot times and application launches, plus it has an impressive full-featured demo available.
  • Pros: Very affordable, much faster read speeds than my 7200rpm HDD (195 MB/s SSD vs. 112 MB/s HDD), and a breeze to install.
  • Cons: Not officially supported for Windows 8 yet, does not support .gpt partitions, and it scored LOWER than my HDD for write speeds (79 MB/s SSD vs. 89 MB/s HDD)
