Fast SSD

Tony F., Newegg
21 September 2015
  • Summary: Get the correct drive for the motherboard specified. Do not get a Sata2 for a Sata3 port or vice versa. This drive I have here is Sata2. My motherboard doesn't support Sata3 and up. Furthermore, check website, manual for specific SSD drives supported (list)
  • Pros: Very fast, and has not stopped on me yet. Using as a boot drive for windows 8.1. Soon as I turn on computer, my long in is already there (few seconds). I never get the chance to turn around and do other things. I have secondary hard drive as programs.
  • Cons: Small capacity, but for boot drive this is awesome (good enough).

  • Cons: Died after 5-6 uses

good product

Nicu C., Newegg
12 April 2015
  • Summary: Good product for the price. Its a 4.8 score. But can't hold the 0.2 against it at this price.
  • Pros: I've had this hard drive for a few months now, made it run in raid 0 for one of my older systems and thus far it works wonderful! 463.3 mb/s read 226.5 write in raid 0. Great for systems limited by sata II.
  • Cons: Writes are a little slow. Latency might not be super good. But haven't checked. But except that everything is on point.

Transcend 128GB SSD

Stan Eckel, Amazon
19 November 2013
  • Summary: Too soon to tell how reliable it is. However it sure does reduce the boot time to say the least. You also have to remember that, with this capacity drive the OS is the only thing you can put on it. That includes the default My Documents, Downloads, Music,..etc.
