Performance Upgrade

Transcend's SSD720 is a next generation SATA III 6Gb/s solid state drive (SSD) that doubles the maximum data transfer rate of the previous Serial ATA II 3Gb/s interface and delivers significantly improved performance over standard rotating hard drives. Combining this latest SATA III 6Gb/s specification with a powerful SandForce controller, the SSD720 offers incredible transfer speeds of up to 550MB/s read and 500MB/s write, taking a mere 15 seconds to transfer a 4.7GB DVD. Consequently, upgrading your computer with an SSD720 will revolutionize system boot up time, application launch speed, and overall system responsiveness.

1 out of 5 eggsPreviously Rated as 2 stars, now it's just 1

Pros: Fast momentarily until it starts going bad

Cons: consult "other thoughts"

Other Thoughts: Unlike a Samsung SSD this one tends to require a refresh just to see the contents, it's not a good kind of refresh because when does it really need a refresh but rarely? And I've been waiting for a while and it seems that it won't stop refreshing because it can't seem to load all files.
And the drive is not loaded with much. See I would say how much space is used but IT CAN'T because it's on a endless cycle of refresh or search. But one thing is for sure that it's not even half full.
It took time to get the OS and everything copied on the drive so replacing the product is something I can't decide on instantly.

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggsNot really a Desktop upgrade kit

Pros: has a desktop mounting bracket.

Cons: no SATA cable, no cloning software, no directions on how to ACTUALLY install

Other Thoughts: This was supposed to be a Desktop Upgrade Kit but it really isn't. There was no SATA cable and cloning software. For someone with average knowledge about this stuff, doing all of this without guidance is pretty difficult. I would NOT RECOMMEND this to people who want a quick upgrade and nothing to do with hectic installation procedures. This has a good warranty period of 3 years so for those years I will just persevere till I feel like swapping it out with a Samsung Desktop Upgrade Kit.
