Great and wonderful Ram

Steven G., Newegg
13 May 2015
  • Summary: I have had this ram since 2012 and it has been pushed to the brink and back and never faltered! I have had several PNY products over the years and they have all preformed exactly as they have stated. I am Very Pleased and will continue to purchase PNY products!
  • Pros: Easy to install (like any ram chip set)
  • Cons: None!

Big Mistake

Edward,, TigerDirect.com
27 January 2015
  • Summary: Decided to upgrade an Intel 128 GB SSD to this 240GB PNY drive. Big mistake. Installed fine and worked well, for about a month and then when I rebooted got a message that the drive was not initialized. In other words, Do Not Pass Go. Start over. Reinstall OS and software. Restore lost user files.

Excellent Value

BobC,, TigerDirect.com
27 January 2015
  • Summary: I bought this drive on sale with a coupon for a very attractive price. It's not the fastest drive around, but for the price I paid, it was an excellent value. In addition, I was installing it in an older laptop that only had SATA II, so the speed wasn't terribly important.

Good Solid Fast Drive

Dead Jim,, TigerDirect.com
27 January 2015
  • 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.

Mounting bracket not included

Woof, TigerDirect.com
31 July 2014
  • 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!

Good Product

D M., Newegg
28 July 2014
  • Summary: Bought this as it was the cheapest 8GB 1600 kit with good timings. It's not the fastest or best performing memory but that's not what it was designed for. It works exactly as it should.
  • Pros: Price. Works.
  • Cons: Not high performance

What an improvement

Donkee, TigerDirect.com
27 July 2014
  • 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.
