Summary: Stay far away if you're on a Mac. I installed this (with Newer Tech AdaptaDrive Bracket) in my Mac Pro and it randomly unmounted twice in 10 minutes. Verified/Repaired in Disk Utility, and it stayed mounted for a while longer, only to disappear again. I'm exchanging it for the Crucial M4.
Summary: Transcend's as well as all known Asians' claim SSD Encryptioning are deceptive in that the drive as all drives are capable of being externally encrypted by a hardware chip, or by software such as truecrypt.org, however the drive itself does no encryptioning.
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: I am very pleased with this drive. The price and performance makes this drive the best on the market. On the windows experience index it was given the highest rating, a 7.9 out of 7.9 for disk data transfer speed.
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: I have a 3 ½ year old MacBook Pro that I put this drive in and it now is extremely fast. Startup time is much less that half of the previous HDD. Awesome SSD. I'd recommend to anyone looking to boost performance.
Summary: Installed it in my late 2011 17" Macbook Pro (no adapters). The difference was noticeable. I can pretty much do anything in one bounce. I optimized the system for the SSD, and I know it's not a great idea, but I could not resist running some benchmarks. The numbers were a bit disappointing. My best sequential read speed was about 380MB/s and the write was about 320MB/s. Nowhere near the advertized speed, but much better than my old drive (thus 4 stars).
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: 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.
