Summary: It came on time and is still working after almost a year of daily use. I am using it in an i5 laptop running Fedora Linux. The system runs several times faster than with the original hard disk. To reduce wear on the SSD, I maxed out the system RAM to 8GB, set the file systems to mount with noatime, and put /tmp in RAM with the lines below in /etc/fstab. UUID=8d..
Summary: is was weary of buying a ssd fore a long time the $$$ and the revus iv seen scared me of buying them till not i figered it was time to tack the plung and risk 500$ hope it dont crapout on my in 1-2 months like i red
Pros: where to start fast my World of warcraft loads all most instintly to the pw screen loading it to the game wow like 3 times to 6 times farster if your tank or heeler this is a must lol can loag in much faster and som i did not expet it to do it cut my ram useg in 1/2 i got 4gb ddr3 ram i was maxed out all the time no i rarly use more then 2.2 gb. this is a 5 year old comp and it now out prforms my moms bran new 2000$ comp with at lest 2x of every thing gpu ram cpu ex
Cons: see if it last. if it last 6 years ill never go back to a plater drive agen but no cons so far
Summary: Probably one of the best products I've ever purchased for a computer! Fast, silent and effective - what more could one ask? I purchased this unit to use in a desktop: I have the OS loaded onto a smaller Transcend SSD and all the applications loaded onto this one. I use a standard 2T HD for storage. I've been so impressed that I replaced the HD in my notebook with a larger Transcend SSD and built an HTPC around another of the 128 GB units.
Summary: This SSD has very good read/write specs, and has improved my home pc greatly. It was easy to install, mostly because I had some extra zip ties lying around, but partly because it comes with tiny screws that fit the mounting holes. I was sort of under the impression that it would come with a bracket, which I was excited about because I like things to look nice. It doesn't come with one, so I just "white-trashed" it up with the ties. This drive is great.
Summary: I wanted to wait for some time before I post this review. It cost me around $350 at the time to buy this one. I use lots of virtual machines on top of host operating system. It is certainly faster compare to my previous SSDs. Really easy to install and 7mm profile makes it a viable option for future to move it to my laptop as well.
Summary: Used in a usb-3 external drive enclosure as extra spave for my Macbook Retina. Noticably faster then convential hard drives, quiet, cool works great. I run a 100GB windows7 virtual machine off the drive and it's faster than when I had it in a bootcamp partition on my previous macbook.
Summary: I have been assembling my own PCs for 15 years, and this stands head and shoulders above any other upgrade I have made with respect to performance. Installed this with a motherboard, FX processor and memory upgrade along with Windows 8. It was easy to mount and simple (for me) to configure.
Pros: Very easy upgrade, user-friendly software, good capacity-price-performance.
Cons: None so far. Worried about reliability since this tech is new to me, so was careful about imaging my installation on an external SATA drive and I always back up my volatile data. Not even a hiccup so far, just being cautious.
Summary: I've been running a Lenovo x220 Tablet for the past year, and the samsung drive that came with it took forever to wake up, or had to be on max power settings. Since I use it both as a laptop and a tablet, waking quickly is important so I can save battery, but still react when a meeting calls for it.
Pros: Absolutely a great call for the price.
Cons: I admit I didn't do the max research before purchasing. I needed the size, almost as much as I needed the speed boost. Could another drive have been much faster? I'm not sure
