Maybe I'm spoiled...this drive is exceedingly fast. Usually. However, at times it seems to slow down quite a bit. For example when copying small files around, or accessing lots of files. For example reading and writing to the same drive using the maven...

PQI DK9640GD2R000A03 2.5 Inch 64GB SATA Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail Package

I was given this drive as an unexpected birthday present (they of course bought it from NewEgg) and was really ecstatic at first, but these freezes are really annoying.

Super Talent UltraDrive ME ( FTM32GX25H ) Vast station

If you search on the manufacturer's site, you'll find that this SSD has a 64mb cache, which eliminates the 'stutter' problem that many SSDs suffer from. I have owned this drive for about three months and I have had no issues whatsoever! I was able to...

Samsung MCCOE64G5MPP

While there are certainly some high points in the Samsung’s benchmark scores, the drive’s overall performance was just slightly better than average. But given that most other SSDs we’ve tested offer less than a 10 percent performance improvement yet...

Super Talent FEM16GF13M SSD

The Super Talent Pico 16GB USB flash drive packs 16GB into a ridiculously tiny form factor. Its write speeds might not be anything out of the ordinary, but its read speeds and diminutive size are what set it apart from the competition.

Transcend 32GB SSD, 2.5- Inch, IDE, MLC

Have had the drive for some time now with no issues. Using it on an older machine running Linux that only had IDE support (used a 2.5" to 3.5" IDE convertor). Good boot times and runs lots cooler than the 100GB 7200s I was using. Hoping that it'll last...

200gb vertex le ssd

I have three of these drives; they all post similar speed benchmarks. But... If you update the firmware to the latest version, 1.11, expect to see a POST error message about "smartdrive failure" which is strange because the release notes suggest that...

TRANSCEND ExpressCard/34 SSD 32GB

Too bad the designers didn't think of putting the SD card slot at the end, rather than on the side.... It's just too awkward with the card sticking out. That said, otherwise, the reader/adapter works just file.

Kingston SSDNow S100 Series SS100S2

Eh it should have lasted longer, SMART had no beef with it. Stopped showing up in the in the system, then was invisible in BIOS. Power cycle would fix it, but not this time.. luckily I ordered a replacement the last time it went invisible.
