It was working perfectly (last night) until it was not (this morning it's a door stop). Verfied that it is in fact the drive. Wish I'd purchased a standard hard drive-- now I'm out the cost of this drive plus a replacement (has to be a standard hard...

Bought X1 Carbon last year. Still within warranty, SSD dies out of blue after hybernation. Called the Lenovo service department. Known defect (SSD firmware problem when the drive is about to be full) to Lenovo but they don't fix, only offers to reimage...

This set of OCZ PC2-5400 CL4 memory is definitely something to consider when you're looking for the right modules for your next build.

This could possibly be a defect in SSD/OS communication, SSD manufacturing, controller, the list is seemingly limitless. I have turned off all sleep of any kind, which is a tip from an OCZ forum, thought it wouldn't hurt to apply to this drive. Be sure...

RITEK Serial ATA/300 Internal Solid State Drive (MLC)

I have had more success with the 32GB model, maybe I got a bad one, but this is not what I signed up for when I bought it. Replaced with a 32GB from the same manufacturer.

PX-64M1S 64GB Solid State Drive

Stick with Newegg, but dump Plextor, it's just not worth the headaches begging them for something that should be freely available to current owners of the drive since it is nothing more than a simple bios update for the SSD.

FileMate SolidGO 3FMS4D48M-WR External Solid state disk (SSD)

I use it with persistent cache software (like EBoostr) instead of Windows' built-in ReadyBoost for better cache hit rates (files stay cached across boots). Used this way, it is cheaper than a large laptop SSD and provides a lot of the performance...

10 year warranty is nothing to sneeze at. I bought mine 6 months ago, after 1 month it failed on me, and after reading online about it, found out that it was part of a bad batch of them. Sent it in(free shipping), 5 days later had a new one with...

Patriot PS64GS25SSDR

Patriot set out to develop a cost effective SSD with the PS-100 series and while they have created an affordable SSD, we do not feel that the design is very cost effective in terms of the performance vs. price ratio. Truth be told, you are much better...

I do not like giving reviews of less than 4 stars as often I think it unfairly punishes manufacturers. But in this case, I have wasted nearly two full days on a drive that clearly has issues. Do a search on this model, and you'll find post after post...

I also had the internal USB connector on this drive break off. I had bought 2 and had to take apart the second one to use it to get the data from the first one. I have owned literally hundreds of drives and this one was the worst design I have ever seen.
