Amazing fast

matthew m., Newegg
22 August 2014
  • Summary: This is my 1st experience w SSD technology. I'm kinda concerned about the technology, not sure how long it will hold up. It's working well in my 3 yr old Lenovo laptap. I'm impressed so far.
  • Pros: Super fast, boots W8 in 5-6 seconds from off.
  • Cons: None yet

Failed

Michael K., Newegg
7 May 2014
  • Pros: Worked flawlessly for about 19 months. Now, locks up.
  • Cons: Failed after 19 months. I am probably going to pursue a claim on the warranty and keep as a backup. Changing to another brand for my primary SSD.

Lightning in a Bottle

Timothy L. Smith "Tim", Amazon
26 February 2014
  • Summary: This drive is QUICK. My Windows 8 machine boots in seconds, and I never have to wait for any folders or simple applications to load. When I am moving files around I almost have to double check that I even did anything because of how swift this is compared to my old 1TB 7200rpm magnetic drive. The price was awesome when I bought this, but I am sure there are larger, faster, cheaper options out there today. I'm still enjoying this and it has remained durable thus far.

Nice fast SSD

Zhang Chi, Amazon

  • Summary: My system can boot in 5 seconds now. Supper happy with the performance that live up to the specs. And 25nm MLC should guarantee a reasonable durability.

Picked Up The Pace

Paul D., Newegg
23 October 2013
  • Summary: I don't believe in synthetic benchmarks. I need to see some tangible change in my everyday work load. I upgraded to this from a SATA II SSD and yes, I do see a quickening of some of my video editing tasks. Also, the size is just enough that 75% of the time I don’t have to use a secondary SSD as a scratch drive (Photoshop, etc).
  • Pros: Speed. Why else would you buy an SSD? Heat? None. Electric usage? My machine is a pretty hefty rig (oc’ed 2600K, 680 SLI, RAID 5) so any reduction in electric usage is just a drop in the bucket.
  • Cons: None so far. Real test will be to see how it is running a year or two from now.

Issue detecting in MBP

Richard M., Newegg
2 October 2013
  • Summary: I can speak to the other user who had issues with drives being detected when installed in a MBP. We had the same issue at my College, but it turns out that the flex cables needed to be replaced. It was very odd, but we figured since the drive was readable from a sled that perhaps it was the cable in the MBP. Turns out we were right.
  • Pros: Solid performance. Works well with MBP unibody.
  • Cons: None to date.
