Great SSD

Richard I., Newegg

  • Summary: About as simple an installation as one can get. No issues of any sort, much faster boot than the 10k rpm Raptor.
  • Pros: Works fine, works with XP even without TRIM (has built-in garbage collection)
  • Cons: Was a bit more expensive than other brands

5 stars. Solid. Fast. 2+ years of use.

Swampfox, Amazon
9 September 2013
  • Summary: 5 stars. Got it over two years ago. Blisteringly fast still, even when I overload it and fill the disk 100% all the time (even though you shouldn't do it). Outstanding product, and a better warranty than most other SSDs. My next SSD will be a Plextor. They make good stuff, their burners were always good in my experience, too.

Fast!

Elizabeth Horlick, Amazon
10 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought this for my fiance for Christmas when they were having a HUGE sale. He loved it and it makes his computer boot up and run so much faster. He is a software developer and uses this to process his code. Can't wait for them to go on sale again so that I can get him another one. He's gonna have the fastest Laptop on the block!

working well

FaCS teacher "Middle School teacher", Amazon
11 January 2013
  • Summary: So far, it is quiet and fast. My biggest complaint was trying to get the included cloning software (by NTI) to work. Even after going online and finding directions that say you have to go to a specific site, and have that site open while you try to install the cloning software, it didn't work. I found the whole Plextor site to be one where they have designed it so you can't even leave an email for anyone, and you can only TRY to contact them during certain hours.

A phenomenal drive one year later

Nathan C., Newegg
9 January 2013
  • Summary: I know this is no longer readily available, but I had to write this review to express how much I appreciated this drive. It was a great pickup and remains a great pickup if you find it available somewhere for a reasonable price.
  • Pros: Fantastic speeds. Crystal Disk Mark measured ~500 MB/s sequential write, 210 MB/s sequential read even after 6 months and with the drive ~80% full. Easy installation, no issues with drive configuration, data corruption, errors, etc. Fast bootup and near instant response from my everyday use programs such as chrome, Word, iTunes, Mathematica. Great for gaming, especially when loading levels with high-read time environments. Outstanding quality and 5 year warranty. Thes...
  • Cons: None.

Did Not Work as OSX Lion Boot Disk

M. Grosser, Amazon
1 January 2013
  • Summary: The drive had some strange issues where it would not work as an OSX boot drive. I was able to clone my hard disk to it, but it wouldn't function as the boot drive when plugged in over SATA. Strangely, it did work over USB. I tried all of the firmware versions available for this drive, and nothing made any difference.
