Summary: I own this SSD for around half a year. This boots Windows 7 at least 40% faster than my HDD. My two complaints are the read/write speeds are slower than what they claim and the life span is also less (I do not do that many read/writes on this SSD), but that is not enough to take off a star because of the price I bought this for. Also, SSD prices are falling and SSDs are getting faster and faster so as long as this lasts over 4 years, I am happy.
Summary: One of the best upgrades you can make is switching to a SSD. The boot and shut down times are super fast. This isn't the fastest drive on the market but still very good. Pros- Everything Cons- None I can think of but there are faster drives out on the market but this one is very good especially for the price. You won't regret your purchase when you power on your computer and within seconds Windows is ready.
Summary: At first it was great, but it already died. I purchased the 120gb ssd April 21 st. Installed it on my machine and the primary Drive for the OS only. Setup for trim and away it went, it was great for the first three months. But starting around 10th of August it just started giving me errors and crashing my machine.
Summary: Great value for an SSD; will bring new-life to older computers with its speed. But be careful: this SSD is 9.5mm thick unlike others that are 7mm - so check your application. For example, this SSD will not fit in the older Acer C710 chromebooks with out some physical modifications (like removing the SSD electronics from it metallic case and voiding warranty). However it works nicely in an older Dell D620/D630 laptop, with its SATA interface - slides right in.
Summary: I don't have anything negative to say about this drive but be wary: I threw this bad boy into an old, old, old HP laptop that I'm sure has a slower processor than my cell phone and, while I noticed speed improvements in load times etc, I suspect the laptop processor is bottlenecking the OS and holding this drive back. Obviously, this is not a fault of the drive itself, but something to be mindful of.
Summary: I originally bought this because it was the best deal I found for an SSD of this size. I had never really heard of this brand but I saw good reviews for them so I tried it out. The box was packaged very well and installation was easy. In reality there is only about 110 GB of free space on this so be warned. I bought this as a second hard drive for my laptop which has two hard drive bays.
