Elgato Thunderbolt 120 GB Solid State Drive (10024012)

I don't see that big of a speed difference than my USB 2.0 external HD I use. Drive says hot all the time even if the computer is sleeping. Thats not normal for a drive to be that warm all the time. The drive came with a cord so I spent $30 on a...

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 SSD18C3 USB 3.0 solid state drive

Transcend's SSD18C3 is a USB 3.0 solid state drive that's small and attractive. However, it doesn't provide much of a speed upgrade over a traditional USB 3.0 hard drive and with a cost per gigabyte over $5, it's also very expensive.

32GB Solid State Drive (Ultra ATA/66)

This isn't the world's fastest drive by any means, but if you have a notebook with a 1.8" drive, and you have the money, you're nuts if you don't try this.

Super Talent Double Wide Solid State Drive

They call it the ?High Capacity Luxury USB Drive?. Well, so far, the name fits the packaging. The box was fairly nice material and held closed with a small magnet. When you open the box you see that the drive comes with a nice little leather carrying...

G.Skill TITAN FM-25S2S-128GBT1

We weren't sure what to expect when the Falcon arrived, but after seeing it up close and in action, we can say we are impressed. Very impressed. In terms of performance, the G.Skill Falcon doesn't exhibit any stuttering issues previously known to...

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...

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...
