Looks like it is the same as several others here. Purchased this just over 1 year ago to replace the SATA HD in my laptop. Cloned the original HD, swapped it out and BAM, instant improvement. Blazing fast boot up (in the 10-13 second range). But, it...

Solidata K5-32 solid-state drive

I hate to say it but I just can't get past the cost of the Solidata K5. Even as an enterprise product that is designed to outlast the consumer drives by years, I just can't budge on this issue. The dark horse in the room is the Intel X25-E (enterprise...

Verbatim SSD ExpressCard 64GB

Despite the disappointment of lower than hoped performance (even Verbatim says up to 120MB/s read, but 30MB/s write) and reduced functionality as a possible boot drive, this ExpressCard SSD remains a handy and painless way to add storage to a suitably...

Transcend TS128GSSD25S-M SSD

If you can handle the slow speeds, the drive *is* very inexpensive. I have decided to move this drive over to the backup/archive section. Here's hoping it lasts.

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...
