When it worked, it worked great... For about 220 hours.

Summary: When I first got this SSD in mid October 2014, I thoroughly enjoyed the performance I got out of the product. However, not even 4 months later, the SSD stopped working, which is a shame since my OS, and a bunch of one installation only software was running off of it.
Summary: I got this SSD back in August 2014 and overall it is an improvement from my hard drive; however, when used for several hours it has the habit of freezing. This may be specific to my laptop, but if you have a HP Pavilion dm4 then expect possible freezing after 10+ hours of use in one sitting.
Summary: I think that's the best I could do for you to stop buying it. Bought it 3 month ago Some times the computer reboot just randomly Yesterday I just found out I can't even turn my computer on. Changed the Sata cable, would not work. And the computer can't even recognize the drive anymore.
Summary: Failed Fast! Not even 2 months... installed on Oct, 22, Dead on Dec 15! Customer responsible for all warranty shipping costs to PNY so I have to spend more money to get a working unit. I won't trust the replacement for any important tasks so I still need to buy a good SSD...

Summary: This is my first experience with a PNY SSD. I've had great success with SSDs from OCZ, Sandisk, and Kingston (never any issues). I put this into a new build using a Gigabyte motherboard and Win 8.1.
Summary: I waited for a good long time before writing this review (8 Months) - being that the item is a SSD you never know how good it is until some time has past. I really enjoy my "PNY SSD" its not the fastest in the world but its far better than my standard HDD that it replaced.
Summary: Absolutely fantastic. I replaced an old, standard, drive in my PC with this affordable SSD and the machine is better than new. So much faster. My bootup times went from 2min to <1min. If you are even thinking about installing a SSD in your PC, DO IT.
Lag issue and poor over the phone customer service by PNY
21 October 2014
Summary: There was a lag issue with my SSD 2 months in after I received it. At first I would notice small lags and it wouldn't effect me too much cause it would last for about a second. After 4 months the lags would last for 5-10 seconds and It's time I had to trouble shoot the issue.
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...
