Regarding the latest firmware and drivers. When I buy a piece of equipment (not OEM, but full price, box, goodies, and all), I'm assuming that whatever software the manufacturer includes is designed to help the product work better, not shorten its...

Very fast... when it works

This is the 2nd G.SKILL SSD that died on me. The first lasted less than a month. At least the 2nd one made it almost a year. When I contacted the manufacturer about the 2nd SSD bombing out, they asked if we enabled the ACHI mode and if it was updated...

Works Great, Fingers Crossed


If you check the GSkill forums, you'll notice that many OS X users have issues installing the OS to their drive. It appears to be a known issue where the drive is not recognized by the OS X installer DVD. The work around is a MAJOR PIA: i) Make a fresh...

Fast. Small. No moving parts

OS X install issues! (See below)

G.SKILL Sniper Gaming Series FM-25S2S-60GBSR 2.5" 60GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)


Like any SSD, it dramatically improved my startup/shutdown time as well as some installations. It is quiet when loading due to no moving parts and has been a great addition to my laptop

When I first got it, I ran a windows experience index and the SSD scored a 7.2 out of a possible 7.9! I was thrilled! Three weeks later, after a fresh re-install, it is only scoring a 5.9.... Not sure how it lost integrity already but that was a bit of...

Sniper Fast!!


These seem to be a hit or miss for some but G.Skill is always right there. Windows 7 is your friend with these, I have 2 of these in Raid 0 and they are fast, a must buy!!

Fast, good support from G.Skill, price when on sale, Newegg for great CS on anything you buy, and did I say fast

None, if you know what you are doing

Good SSD


Good overall SSD

Good speed (little bit slower than the SSD but still very nice for the price), good price, good base for HTPC build, enough space for W7, Office, + some games

N/A so far

Awesome SSD!


Newegg rocks as usual! When I purchased this it had a $20 off promo code and was normal price of $135.99. A few hours after I finished my check out and bought this it dropped $19 to $116.99. Had a little buyers remorse untill I contacted Newegg...

Great price, even without a promo code and price drop. I got mine for $96 a couple weeks ago when they were on sale. These things are nice and fast. Bench marked them with CrystalDiskMark and HDTunePro and they bench marked close to what they are...

55.9G shows up out of the 60G. Wish they would build that lost 4.1G into a buffer so we would get the full 60G as advertised. As anyone knows when shopping for these they are expensive and always nice to get the most out of your money. Not worth...

Gonna get a few more of these once I have a little more cash flow. G. Skill and Newegg equals big win for everyone!

Great price, great product put them together equals awesome deal! Runs at what is stated. Quality packaging from G. Skill, padded enveloped it came in from Newegg made me sad tho. Sleek looking, included bracket fit right into my HDD brackets with no...

Didn't come with Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit pre-installed? >.<; Wish it came with a case badge

Zomg!!! Buy this one now!!


If your looking to add a little more zip and make your computer a little more snappier. Look at this one, very very impressed so far!

Very impressed with this SSD. My first one I have ever purchased and let me tell you. Coming from old 7200rpm HDDs to this guy is night and day! I am not saying that it boots everything up in a second or so. But after motherboard startup stuff, OS...

nothing for now
