Summary: I bought this drive as an upgrade for my HTPC.......Best decision I ever made. The system boots in about 8 to 10 secs with Windows 8.1. I load games so fast that I barely get a chance to read the game tips in games like Borderlands 2 or Skyrim.
Pros: Excellent product, I have been buying Sandisk products for over a decade, have had no failures. This SSD takes an old Dell Latitude D630 and makes it as good or if not better than when it was new. A very good budget SSD.
Summary: Wish I had stuck with normal hard drive. Also, use some other type of backup other than What comes with Windows.
Pros: Fast and light
Cons: several necessary Windows 7 files were corrupted somehow. Could not run any programs. No utilities could fix it. Could not even restore system from backups. CHKDSK would find no errors, but each time system was booted, Windows would want to run CHKDSK again.
Summary: Results will very depending on system and amount of hardware strain. Even if you have a low speed bench-mark You will still notice the Blazing fastness of an ssd! BUY ONE! or Two!
Pros: Great Price! The Speed Is Amazing!. Warranty is longer than most. Bench-marked Very close to Advertised specs. Best Purchase For My PC YET! results will very depending on system and amount of hardware strain. Even if you have a low speed bench-mark You will still notice the Blazing fastness of an...
Cons: None At All. ScanDisk Delivers on its Products..
Summary: If you're demanding of space, consider a couple of the new "Hybrid NAND" tech out, they offer pretty reasonable performance in terms of speed, and i imagine two of them in Raid would be comparable to a SSD.
Pros: Very fast, boots Arch Linux in about 5 seconds. pretty impressive. This is the first SSD I have owned, and i'm not into comparing 40 other brands of SSD's to get the absoloute fasted, bottom line is, flash is faster than physical, sof or the price, you really can't go wrong. stays pretty cool, ar...
Cons: Unfortunate that its so expensive to get an SSD with a ton of space, understandable though. Not a con of this specific drive, just SSD's in general
... you won't believe this- You can not get a better performance improvement for less cost

Summary: If you haven't upgraded to a SSD you won't believe this- You can not get a better performance improvement for less cost. I installed this drive in an old Core2 Duo with 2gb RAM. I installed WIN 7 from USB in 13 minutes. Boot time to log-in is now 13 seconds.
