Plextor PX-128M5S

My system can boot in 5 seconds now. Supper happy with the performance that live up to the specs. And 25nm MLC should guarantee a reasonable durability.

Kingston SKC300S37A/180G KC300

I would have speced out the E50 or E100 series drives had it been apparent these were not truly enterprise grade. Be warned when specing the E series of SSDs, they must be run in a RAID environment or you will need to change your system's settings to...

KINGSTON 240GB HYPERX 3K SSD SATA 3 2.5 .

I was hesitant in buying an SSD drive because they were pricey and did not know if it would speed my computer up. My computer was already pretty quick and would start-up in 30-45 seconds which is fine for me. But my buddy convinced me to buy it after...

Corsair CSSD-F60GBGT-BK Force GT

Used to replace an OZC version as the damn thing caught on fire! OCZ does not back their products or rebates. The Corsair was super easy to install and has been solid in its performance. Well worth the money!

I had a Lenovo T410 laptop full of my company's stuff. It was very slow, took abou 4 minutes to boot, for example. I bought this SSD drive to replace the original 5400 RPM drive. Now It seems to be a totally new machine, booting in less than 40 seconds...

INTEL 530 240GB SATA SSD MLC BULK (SSDSC2BW240A401)

I bought this for the long warranty and that many reviews seemed to place it fairly highly, mostly missing out to Samsung SSDs which had a shorter warranty. I don't think most people will be able to tell the speed difference between a fast and an...

KINGSTON 480GB SSDNOW KC300 SATA3 2.5 IN.

Dell tech support tried to talk me out of getting a solid-state drive and recommended only antiquated disk drives as updates to the original 80GB 7200rpm disk drive in my Latitude D820. Boy, were they wrong! This product is amazing and does everything...

SanDisk Ultra Plus SSD

Overall, I was impressed with the SanDisk Ultra Plus SSD. The boot times were excellent, as were the data transfer speeds. The shutdown time was a bit disappointing, but nothing that would dissuade me from purchasing this affordable drive.

Hitachi - Hard drive per computer portatile IDE PATA 2,5" 80 GB 5400 RPM

I bought one of these and I was completely shocked to see that the 'brand new' hard drive saw 3.6 YEARS of use and over 1000 start-up sequences. so do yourself a favor and check hard drives you buy by reading the internal S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring,...

If you're installing an OS, be wary that if you do not use NTFS junction points, or another redirect method to put your Program Files on your HDD instead of your SSD, your 60GB drive will soon be filled up. Programs pile up fast. If you go online, you...
