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.

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 FPM16GHAE

Overall we feel the "The GodFather" USB flash drives are well made and they could attract movies fans or for people who just want to have something fancy in their pockets. The speed of the drive isn't bad, but enthusiasts will certainly want something...

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...

I installed this drive on a pre uni-body Macbook Pro. Can you say fast? I was replacing a 5400 rpm HD. Here are the time comparisons: (a) boot up to login screen on the original HD: 0:55--on this SSD: 0:34. And here's the kicker! It really goes...

I have three of these drives; they all post similar speed benchmarks. But... If you update the firmware to the latest version, 1.11, expect to see a POST error message about "smartdrive failure" which is strange because the release notes suggest that...

Imation Solid State Drive PRO 7000 powered by Mtron

Don’t let the numbers fool you: Although it appears to be an older drive due to its model number, Imation’s Pro 7000 is completely competitive with Mtron’s Pro 7500. In fact, their benchmark numbers are close enough that we wouldn’t be surprised to...

Eh it should have lasted longer, SMART had no beef with it. Stopped showing up in the in the system, then was invisible in BIOS. Power cycle would fix it, but not this time.. luckily I ordered a replacement the last time it went invisible.
