1 out of 5 eggsGarbage product

This review is from: PNY XLR8 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD9SC120GMDF-RB

Pros: Worked great for a year.

Cons: Write speeds slowed to a crawl (~<10mb/s). RMA'd the first one. Again, worked great for around a year, then did the same thing. Buying a Samsung EVO to replace it.

Other Thoughts: Stay away from PNY

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible. Avoid.

This review is from: PNY XLR8 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD9SC120GMDF-RB

Pros: Decent Read Speeds.
Nothing Else.

Cons: Write speeds not as advertised. The drive was advertised as having 450MB/s write speeds. It's not even close. The write speed is only 4mb/s, and your system will hang until any writing is done. I'm not the only one with this problem either, look up "PNY XLR8 Slow Write Speed" on Google. I'm guessing something is wrong with the drive, and I'd RMA it, but the PNY support site is less than helpful, and doesn't seem to be going through.

They also didn't tell me I had to register it within 90 days, so I can't register it on their site either.

1 out of 5 eggsShotty

This review is from: PNY XLR8 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD9SC120GMDF-RB

Pros: it's fast. We ordered the first one from Newegg. Newegg is amazing and we received the product promptly.

Cons: The first one died at 3 months. PNY made us pay to ship it back and get the replacement. 4 months after we received the replacement, the shotty product died again, with the same issue.

Other Thoughts: NEVER buying a PNY product again.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed within 18 Months

This review is from: PNY XLR8 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD9SC120GMDF-RB

Pros: It was fast while it worked. Works even when very very cold (below freezing).

Cons: It died about a year after buying it, causing my system to slow to a crawl... It would stop being recognized at all when it got warm, I had to put it in the freezer to get it to last long enough to clone onto a new drive...

1 out of 5 eggsNewegg Knowingly sold me an Defective Product...

This review is from: PNY XLR8 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD9SC120GMDF-RB

Pros: It was awesome, until i realised, after much digging, that sandforce controllers are incompatible with Haswell Chipsets.

https://communities.intel.com/thread/33953

Cons: So if you using this SSD with a Haswell based Chip, you will eventually have the following symptoms...

1. Large Writes, will completely Freeze the Controller, which in turn causes a parasitic symptom to your SATA controller, causing your PC to crawl like a slug, when transferring data. Or BSOD if its your OS's drive.

2. Magically Disconnect itself, when installing applications, games, transferring data.

3. Lose Data, given this Drive was used to only store games, I've had to reinstall them due to game files mysteriously missing. It was painful to have to reinstall GTA5 multiple times.

Other Thoughts: I really wish I did my research before buying this SSD, I have a newer kingston that works flawlessly. This Drive has been nothing but problems, never thought Transferring Data could bring my whole PC to a crawl, until what cause was..my SSD...

I have already RMA'd Once with PNY, but I doubt a 2nd RMA, will remedy a problem that is engineered into the Controller.

But, if you aren't Using a Haswell Chip. You should be fine, good luck!

2 out of 5 eggsNot very good...

This review is from: PNY XLR8 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD9SC120GMDF-RB

Pros: Was a decent speed over a spinner HD but mine failed exactly at the 11 month and 20 day mark. I was getting around 350 read / 280 write give or take.

Cons: Failed within a year...

Other Thoughts: Was a decent speed over a spinner HD but mine failed exactly at the 11 month and 20 day mark. I was getting around 350 read / 280 write give or take. I did like the nice metal case. I am in the process of sending it back RMA via request of PNY because it had a 3 year warranty so hopefully the next one they send me works well?

Pros: fast while it worked

Cons: very unreliable
