Summary: Before I purchased this drive I read many reviews. A lot of them boasting read speeds of ~500 and write speeds of ~300. This is what prompted me to buy this drive. Come to find out, once it's installed and benchmarked, I'm getting reads at ~500, writes at ~100. What a complete and utter let down. I'm extremely unsatisfied with this drive and regret the purchase.
Summary: So I've had the item since March 2013 and the it has caused me nothing but hassle. Constant disk read errors, freezing, slow boot up times and has begun to regularly crash; won't be buying this brand of SSD ever again, just not worth the hassle even if it was nicely priced when I bought it. Don't buy, recommend getting a better brand of SSD like OCZ, Corsair or Kingston instead.
