  • Pros: Well made product with a solid warranty. Uses SLC chips. Super fast drive. Just enough room to load Windows XP.
  • Cons: The size vs. price. Transcends website could bring more to the table as far as support. All the information that I got to tweak the drive was gained from using google. Out of the box the drive is okay, but with about 6 tweaks it smokes. Nowhere on the Transcend website does it provide help in this area.

  • Pros: Bought 2. Both used in an automotive environment in trucks that torture them with temperature, vibration and the like. Both have performed flawlessly since day one. These are SLC type flash, which is better then MLC from what I read.
  • Cons: Capacity / $ ratio.

DOA or Incompatable

Partrick M., Newegg
17 June 2009
  • Summary: Visited Transcends website and it was pretty bleak. Posters with SSD issues would not get responses from tech support. Further, the problem with SSD’s not being recognized by older laptops seems chronic.
  • Pros: None yet.
  • Cons: Removed 30GB Toshiba 2.5” drive from Satellite Pro 6000, replaced with TS8GSSD25-S and rebooted. Machine hung on boot menu; device boot list did not have new SSD HD listed. Followed all manufacturer’s installation instructions – removed battery, wore static wrist strap, etc – and even swapped out SSD with another 30GB 2.5” HD from a different Satellite Pro 6000; same results.

  • Pros: Great to have a drop-in SSD replacement for PATA laptop hard drives. Fast. Much less time waiting for disk I/O.
  • Cons: Only 8GB of space, and expensive for that.

Great upgrade for old Dell laptop

Eric J., Newegg
8 April 2009
  • Pros: I have an old Dell Inspiron 8100 laptop which is my daughter's play computer. It has thrashed its original Hitachi Travelstar 60GB HDD and an identical replacement. I suspect the laptop might get somewhat too hot, plus the girl tends to be a little rough with the machine (slams the clamshell, shuts down by just powering off). I thought about solid state as a more impact-tolerant, high-temp-tolerant alternative.
  • Cons: Small size for price, even smaller size for SLC memory.

Works great in Thinkpad T30 with Ubuntu

Steve G., Newegg
28 November 2008
  • Pros: Quiet. The bootup time is faster. The desktop comes up smoother. Easy to replace - formfactor is the same, but had to use old screws that fit the caddy.
  • Cons: Was not substantially lighter; just a little lighter.
