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 spent the big money to take with me to south america for Data storage.. I have the same poor solder problem that the other reviewers had! AND so expensive...I have the 128GB drive, It's the same shoddy product they won't support easily. GRRRRRR.

Ocz OCZESATATHR16G Flash Drive Throttle

The OCZ Throttle 16GB failed within two days: same symptoms as described by Barry Irving above. I have to suspect that the RMA and replacement unit will face the same fate? At this stage, I cannot recommend this drive, no matter how fast it is, if it...

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...

FileMate 3FMS2S256M-R0 2.5" 256GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

I'm an early adopter and I work in the technology field - I'm an advanced user. If you are a novice user, stick with the proven HDDs for right now. These devices need to get better before they are ready for prime time. The expense and the reliability...

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.

Kingston SSDNow V200

This was bought for my son\'s high end gaming work station. The hard drive was the only remaining link to a full speed, highly capable gaming work station and this completed the transformation. As a caution, if you are going to use this in a desktop,...

OCZ's Z-Drive R4 offered breakout performance in almost every test condition we put it under. In fact, we were able to realize the card's max read/write bandwidth specification in our ATTO test and watched it flat out crush competitive products in our...

OCZ Technology 60 GB Summit Series SATA II 2.5 Inch Solid State Drive (SSD)...

This is the earlier generation of turbo series and does not have auto trim built in. But you can send trim commands through a exe file downloadable from OCZ. I made the mistake of flashing the SSD using the Vertex normal series firmware causing it to...

Kingston SSDNow E-Series SNE125-S2

For the previous posters, this is identical to the Intel drives (not the mainstream, but the enthusiast models). Kingston just puts a different sticker on it like ADATA does with some of their drives. If you build a high-end system with 12 or 24 GB of...

Super Talent MasterDrive SX

When you say the name Super Talent, the first thing that comes to my mind is the DRAM manufacturer. Super Talent is a company in the business to manufacture DDR, DDR2 and DDR3 memory modules. They were also quick to jump on the flash storage...
