Pros: Good price. Fast but not as fast as my Corsair Neutron. Big enough to use in gaming machine for Windows 7 and some games.
Cons: Spent all day installing Windows 7 and a bunch of other programs, turned computer off and when I turned it on the next morning Windows wouldn't boot. Couldn't even get it to start using the Windows 7 repair function. Checked the drive and it tested good so I took a break and said a few choice words then reinstalled everything. This time it took and it's been working OK ever since. Don't know what happened except it wasn't my error. I'm keeping an open mind since it's ...
Summary: I bought this ssd 1 week ago, it's really fast, faster than HDD ,but I gave it 3 stars, because I had a hard time to make it work , I always get boot error , I switched between many cables , and SATA slots , also I upgraded it to last version , but no use . I had to fix it through the wins 8 DVD to repair the boot, the problem is I have to do that every time I make a changes to it , as if I switch it to a AHCI mode .
Summary: I replaced a 5400rpm 100gb drive. Perhaps my expectations were too high. I have a Inspiron 9400 and I recently upgraded from XP to 7 and went from 2gb to 4gb memory. That made a big different in my response time, so I expected the SSD to make a big difference as well. To my surprise, it didn't. Any advantage I thought I'd get over my old drive is not apparent..
SanDisk Extreme SSD 240 GB SATA 6.0 Gb-s 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive SDSSDX-240G-G25 by SanDisk
30 August 2012
Summary: Item will not conform to temperature profile. Reads 128 degrees "C". If correct which I doubt, the item will self destruct in a very short time. It is defective, and therefore has been returned to the gracious folks at Amazon. It is a very fast drive,if you can live with the not knowing if or when it will overheat.
Summary: I picked one of these up on sale as an upgrade for my "Late 2008" Macbook Pro. After installing the drive and a fresh copy of OS X, I found that I would frequently get a spinning beachball and the system would become completely unresponsive for 20-30 seconds. This was happening about every 10-15 minutes.
Summary: Well, I've only had this device for a couple of days - so these are just first impressions. I replaced the hard drive on my Fujitsu laptop running Windows 7 with this 480 GB SSD. Firmware is R201, up-to-date. Pros: 1) Easy clone with Macrium Reflect. 2) Fast boot times, Everything seems smooth and fast so far. Cons: 1) The SSD's SMART parameters are all screwed up. The temperature is meaningless (128 C), error rates are all over the map.
Fast, but I'm hearing a nasty high-pitched noise from one or both
30 July 2012
Summary: Besides the noise, I found the power slot to be particularly difficult to get on, almost like the card piece with the pin/traces on it seemed slightly thicker or wider than it should have been. I thought I would break something I had to use so much force. I did not have that problem with the new LG disk drive on the rig I just built or the 750GB hybrid Seagate I put in my laptop after its HD went.
Incomplete Upgrade Experience, But Drive Alone is Nice
10 June 2012
Summary: The drive alone is great. For fresh new installs or as a secondary drive it works great. It is easy to install, format, and it just works. The speed improved boot time from 56s on HDD to 22s on this SSD, and after logon to being usable from 91s to 9s. As a secondary drive, they give you no instructions, but you just pop it into any open SATA drive bay (or cable in PC), then in Windows 7 go to Control Panel > System & Security > Administrative Tools > Create and format...
Summary: I experienced some stalling problems in a 2007 macbook pro with this drive, as a result I checked firmware. There is a much more recent firmware shipping - available here. [...] I will update the review with proper score and thoughts, but since this was on father's day special, i thought I'd let everyone know there's an update!
