Summary: You might think that you could beat the price on this some days, but actually check those the read and write speeds! This drive is a solid speed performer. Got this on a special deal sale, using it as the boot drive for a win 7 64 ultimate quad core do everything system. Windows Experience Index rates this at the very top, as a 7.9 performer out of 7.9 possible. Just screaming fast in every disk intense game I've tried.
Summary: I realize this is a hazard of buying OEM, but this drive didn't even come with screws that fit it! Fortunately I was able to re-use the bracket and screws from my old drive. If you haven't got old parts to swap out, make sure you buy a bracket too!
Summary: When this drive went on sale ($109) I had to give it a shot in my Thinkpad T61. At first the drive was not recognized by Windows 7 install. I booted the old drive and attached the PNYSSD in my external drive case to create a partition. After that the drive was recognized by Windows 7 install. The performance increase is amazing. I highly recommend an upgrade to SSD drive. The PNY has been great.
Summary: I originally bought this drive for my PS3. However, after reformatting the drive, my PS3 was running quite sluggish. and froze midgame. I tried formatting the drive again from the PS3 but this time around nothing worked and doesn't let my PS3 boot up anymore. I took the drive out and put it in my PC and formatted it there. Now, I'm using it as an SSD drive for my PC, but it was useless ..
Summary: Bought with the intention of adding some storage space to my PS3 Super Slim. After installing netflix becomes unwatchable (the picture freezes frequently while audio continues) and in games there will be none of the dialogue from any characters for long period of time and then they all speak at once (ie COD Black Ops)
