Summary: I bought this in November 30th of 2013, so it's 2 years old now. Also, the packaging says it was manufactured in November 2013 as well, so I got a fresh one! Hopefully it's still like this on newegg, no more than 2-month old drives. There's no way for me to know that without buying another though.
Pros: Super stable - in two years I've never had any issues with this drive, no failures, no incompatibilities, etc. No problems whatsoever. Fast - faster than you'll ever need. The only time this drive's full speed is used is when transferring data between the drive and RAM. My other hard drives are H...
Cons: The price could be more competitive, but after buying a more competitively priced Samsung 850 EVO mSATA SSD and having major heat and compatibility issues, I am definitely going to stick with Plextor drives in the future. Their prices are worth the stability and peace of mind that their products ...
Summary: Bought this to use as a dedicated gaming SSD. Loads games up quick and no stuttering issues. BF4 loads in 45 sec instead of 2 min and CSGO maps load in 5 sec instead of 20. Well worth the buy when it was on sale last year.
Pros: Excellent SSD, very fast, windows loads in seconds, my computer games load quickly as well. It's been working perfectly without a glitch for about 8 months now. I use it in my Alienware 17 laptop.
Summary: I would recommend this m-sata drive without hesitation however, Plextor use to manufacture very good hard drives now they are manufacturing very good solid state drives, you can't go wrong by picking up this unit. You get good value for money.
Pros: Very, very reliable SSD (that is the main reason why I chose it) Speeds are good enough for me, Seq. Read: 492.1 MB/s Seq. Write: 399.4 MB/s 512k Read: 363.0 512k Write: 372.2 4k Read: 21.87 4k Write: 34.95 4k QD 32 Read: 300.6 4k QD 32 Write: 228.5 however if you were to put this until with Sams...
Cons: Not the fastest m-sata drive around, Intel and Samsung are the leaders when it comes to speed. Only 237GB usable after installing Windows 8.1. It doesn't appear to have a built-in temperature sensor but it runs cool,
Summary: I bought two of these for my Sager NP7330, which I also highly recommend. I replaced all internal drives with these, one for OS and one for storage. They have worked very smoothly and caused no problems. Have had them since August 2013.
Pros: This drive is awesome. Low power consumption when not in use (the lowest I have found), speedy read/write, and a ton of storage for a tiny footprint.
Cons: Price is obviously high, but for a drive released in June/July with specs like this, it's well worth it.
