Speed, great laptop replacement drive

Price per GB

Solid Solid State

 

These are very fast. Faster than Vertex Drives I have. Higher quality construction (at least on the outside) is a nice touch

Great SSD

 

Sometimes there are some hiccups in the OS and a few BSODs that I never had when using this same system where the OS ran on a HDD. Usually it's all fixed with a restart. But still, here's to hoping the firmware will fix it for good.

Fast, works as advertised with great speed, loads Windows 7 on my rig in under 20 seconds from POST to Desktop

Speed/quality of firmware updates (incl. trim support/garbage collection). Waiting for the next firmware update (within a week or two of this review date). Current firmware 1819 saps performance from the drive. Hoping next update fixes speed issue...

Blazing!

 

Running Windows 7 x64 Ultimate with Intel i7 920 (no OC), 6GB RAM. Primary program use for this machine: Media Server Video Editing, Transcoding MS Office

Immediate and noticeable improvement across the board. The first thing you will notice is how quickly Windows boots on this drive. My startup time from POST completion to Windows 7 login went from 90 seconds to 30. More impressive though is the speed...

Performance-wise: Zero ; The obvious con is the price (which Newegg actually increased after I bought the drive). I will agree with other posts here stating that for the average user, the current price is probably a bit steep for what you get in return...

Eh. Much better out there.

 

Build quality is very poor. Casing is very cheap plastic, with rough edges. Not well made. I have used 6 Intel SSD and 1 Corsair. I will stick with Intel and Corsair in the future.

Overall speed and cost are good

First one I received was DOA. Tons of write errors using ghost and fresh install. We'll see how the second one does

Works as advertised

 

Great price, performs just as well as the OCZ Vertex drives I have.

I didn't expect much performance from my cheap new laptop, but running ATTO and HDTune got me SATA-II speeds

None at this time

I purchased a 64gb model of this drive form my inspiron 11z, it also have given my 11z a major performance boost.... I think most ppl when the start installing there SSD's they will be more than satisfied to hold off on there uber gaming system...

The pro's are many, very fast speeds, much faster than my 3x7g raptors min raid 0, silent, no heat or noise issues ; All my apps open instantly, games load incredibly fast ; this drive should last 10 years or more wich is better than the 3-4 years I...

price....storage space....doesnt come with a 2.5 to 3.5 adapter ; Much faster SSD's will be on the shelfs in less than a year using Indilinx Jet Stream controllers ussing DDR and 6.0 Gbps
