worked flawless untill...

 

Didn't have any trouble setting this drive up. Worked great and ran at close to advertised speeds. No loading times to speak of in games, can even read skyrims captions in time before loading ends

have owned this drive for 11 months, used basically everyday. then one day, windows freezes, restarts, then the fun begins. drivers corrupt, black screen at login, etc. Tried reinstalling, BIOS sees it, but windows installer doesn't, tried every combo...

Was great while it worked

 

I sent the item in over 3 months ago and keep getting told by the company that they are on back order and tell me a date 3 weeks out then once the date comes and I ask for an update they push it out 3 more weeks again. This will be the last time i buy...

The drive was great while it worked. Windows would boot in 10 seconds. Game load times were great as well

Quit after 7 months. Started with a BSOD and a reboot would work then the drive wouldn't register anymore

Works Great!

 

Great Drive, I have had very good luck with it! Would recommend to anyone.

I have had this drive over a year and it has worked perfectly! Though its not a well recommended brand for SSD's I would get another in a heartbeat and I may just do it ; Very fast ; Boots windows in 13 seconds (power-on to login) ; Boots Many forms of...

boot time does slow after a while (what hard drive doesnt)

Proceed with caution

 

I have had two of these in my computer. The first one lasted a month before the computer would no longer recognize that the hard drive was even installed. We had to pay for shipping in order for the manufacturer to replace it. Nine months later, the...

Very fast. It's nice when Windows 7 boots up in 10 seconds

Not reliable. It WILL one day quit working

Consumer review by:

Great for a little while

 

went with this over another brand because it had better reviews. I believe I read that it has a 3 year warranty though, so I will be investigating that for sure.

Super fast, just what I was expecting from an SSD. Reboot in ~20 seconds

Had some issues installing windows 7 64 bit in the beginning and thought it more of a quirk with Windows (not seeing the drive etc). Been living with several BSODs/day but it reboots so quickly that I was back up and running in about 30 seconds. ...

Love It

 

This is the only drive in my comp. I was concerned that I might have to also add a platter drive as extra storage, but haven't had to yet. This is in my home office comp and I tend to keep it pretty trim and lean. I don't think I can go back to...

Very fast and pretty reliable so far. I'm actually thinking about getting a second one as the 120GB with a 64 bit OS and some basic apps installed leaves me with about 40 GB of working space. With 8GB RAM installed, I can reboot from working to...

I wish it was bigger, but I'm left with a descent about of working space for what I do

Consumer review by:

it stop working after a month

 

I like th speed but I try to find other ways to fix it.

I love the speed and how it taken my comuter book less then 10 secs and playing COD Black ops. Fast and LOVE the speed

Taken few hrs to set my computer up to make it work. Then troubles with getting it to boot up after a month. I left my computer on one night and came back in the morning to get updates and it stop working. Cant find it in bios or anything. I try...

Breathe life into your old laptop...

 

Would highly recommend if you have a laptop that's two to three years old and you need a speed boost. As mentioned in other reviews, make sure you have the latest BIOS updates and enable ACHI mode.

Fast - Just as advertised

Amazing, Costly

 

I am buying another G.Skill sniper gaming series SSD for my new pc I am building as its main drive.

This is the most amazing hard drive I have ever had ; This hard drive boots windows in 7 seconds, Scans viruses with avast at 600 Megabites to 1.5 gigabytes a second and thats way above average speeds for it

Price is a bit high but SSD drives are bound to get cheeper in the next year or two

Consumer review by:

Wow! Fast SSD

 

I was looking at a SATA III unit from another manufacturer but got this as part of a Newegg bundle - I'm very happy with the speed of this unit and saved a bunch of money!

Great bang for the buck SSD Drive. Rates 7.7 in my PC in Windows Experience Index Win 7 x64

SSD is still expensive
