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.

rebate is an issue/drive is ok

e, Amazon
16 October 2012
  • Summary: The rebate process has some serious issues. The drive seems to work as well as the 330 and sandisk extreme I have. All faster than a HD. But with the rebate process one would have to wonder how support works when you need it.

  • Summary: Buyer Beware!
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Terrible drive. Computer couldn't read, slow, died within two weeks. Very poor quality drive and poor quality control. Buyer beware. You will be disappointed. Spend a little more and get a reliable drive. It will be cheaper in the long run.

Disappointed

Joseph L., Newegg
4 May 2012
  • Summary: Tried to install on new motherboard and had many errors with BSD. Upgraded MB BIOS and SDD firmware and still have many errors. There were still BSD and corrupted Windows files (when I ran SFC /scannow). Tried installing Windows 5 times and then RMAed it. Not sure if there are any issues with SATA 3? Called Plextor support but their only suggestion was to upgrade the firmware. This did not help.
  • Pros: When this SDD is working it is FAST!!
  • Cons: BSD and corrupted Windows files
