Died just over two years after purchase

Gene H., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Pros: Worked great for the first few months. This was my first SSD drive, it worked great for 6 months, then I started getting disk read errors when booting into windows.
  • Cons: I expected the drive last longer, I have manual drives that have survived 3 times longer than this drive.

Worked great for 2 1/2 years

Ben R., Newegg
15 May 2015
  • Summary: This thing came highly recommended and performed very well. I had this set as my boot drive but also had a raid 0 with two conventional drives covering everything else. This drive was never more than 1/4 full, had a firmware update before installation, I never ran defrags or full virus scans on it,...
  • Pros: Fast Easy initial setup
  • Cons: Died suddenly 2 1/2 years later. No explanation.

First SSD, very happy

Christopher B., Newegg
1 August 2014
  • Summary: I bought the 256gb in 2012 for $159. I thought I might get a few more today, but the price is ridiculous at $473. There must be a limited quantity. If I wanted to spend that on one SSD I'd buy a 1TB 840 evo for less! ...hey wait, is this reverse psychology? Maybe you're wanting to sell more evos :)
  • Pros: FAST. Reliable.
  • Cons: None.

Fast and Effiencient

Michael S., Newegg
7 May 2014
  • Summary: Not sure why the price is so much atm, maybe because it's older technology now. I would defentily purchase a newer model for cheaper price. So far this drive has been quick enough for me and works efficiently enough for me to not need another one for now.
  • Pros: Runs fast and works very well. I only use it for my windows install and also a few games I want to run fast. SO far so good. 4 months off from 2 years and still running strong. I have formatted it maybe 6 times total. I heard that if you secure erase that sometimes it brings some more life back i...
  • Cons: I had a few problems with scandisk errors on it constantly although health is at 98 percent on hard disk sentinel. And says nothing bad was found. Over 1000 days left. Could be software or older sata ports I was using. On my new mainboard, I don't' seem to have this problem.

  • Cons: Drive died after a year... :(
