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,...

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...

I am very happy with this Laptop Hard-drive. I have installed it into a Mid-2010 17" MacBook Pro; installation is fairly easy & took only 30 minutes. While I have not noticed any increased speed / performance with this hard-drive, I chose this for...

I'm not sure if it worth the money or not or what better options might be out there. But if you have a Mac with Thunderbolt, you won't regret it. Not even one bounce and the app is open. Startup in 15 seconds and shutdown in around 12. Nearly no...

PNY Prevail Elite 480 GB 2.5" Internal Solid State Drive - Retail - Metallic

If you don't mind paying a premium price for a premium product, this is the way to go. Sure, there are likely slightly faster SSDs out there but this one is no slug and has claims of 3x the life of conventional MLC SSDs.
