1 out of 5 eggsTerrible SSD

This review is from: PNY XLR8 PRO 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD9SC120GCDA-RB

Pros: It was fast when it worked.
Customer Service was ok

Cons: I would like to say that if you are looking to purchase this SSD, AVOID IT AT ALL COSTS! I originally ordered these because it was cheap when I was building my desktop. If I knew the headaches that it would cause me I would not have bought it. The first one I had lasted about 4 months before it started giving me issues. It was constantly reading and writing to itself and continued to do so in multiple OS's and was an issue with the drive failing. I contacted support and they sent another one. Thinking my issues were done I got everything reinstalled and no more than a month and a half later, the drive literally stopped working in the middle of me playing a game and failed to be readable or boot. After this I went and bought a competitor's SSD and it has worked flawlessly for over a year now.

Other Thoughts: 2 SSD's in less than half a year. DO NOT BUY.

3 out of 5 eggsGood if not doing anything with it

This review is from: PNY XLR8 PRO 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD9SC120GCDA-RB

Pros: Fast drive for the money

Cons: None technically

Other Thoughts: So, I can't give this little drive a BAD review because it died because of my own fault. It died after I attempted to "free space" re-write because I transferred some programs to my rotational drive and I wanted to do a clean wipe of the free space. I did this a couple times not thinking of it damaging the SSD. It failed after 3 times of doing MFT wipes. Again, my own fault.

1 out of 5 eggsMediocre Performance, Awful Realiability

This review is from: PNY XLR8 PRO 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD9SC120GCDA-RB

Pros: Faster than mechanical HDD?

Cons: Has severely degraded over the past few months with no SMART indication of failure. Even after doing an enhanced secure erase and reformatting, write speeds have collapsed to 1-2 MB/s. This is replicable on multiple SATA controllers.

Other Thoughts: My first hard drive failure in ~20 years of building and tinkering with PCs. I have ~10 platter based HDDs that are 5-7 years old still running fine. My second SSD ever failed on me within a year.

Pros: Fast, as specified per specs on website, visually attracive

5 out of 5 eggsFirst buil

This review is from: PNY XLR8 PRO 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD9SC120GCDA-RB

Pros: Fastest HD i have seen for my OS. Never built a computer before so never really knew about SSD's until a few builders told me to invest in one. Very inexpensive for the space.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I will continue to review as time goes on.

5 out of 5 eggsNice SSD. Very fast.

This review is from: PNY XLR8 PRO 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD9SC120GCDA-RB

Pros: I bought this SSD a few months ago and finally installed it in a new build (see specs below). I've been using SSDs for a few years now and I can tell you that this model is super fast. I don't get all worked up over the fine details by doing speed tests, but I can just say that my Win 8.1 boots in like three seconds after post and programs load and function super fast.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Here's my new build check list (all of which make for a super fast, low-priced system that anyone can put together):

GIGABYTE GA-F2A88XM-D3H motherboard

Windows 8.1 (yes, I like this OS, and it boots in less than five seconds with this package!).

1 out of 5 eggsNot well made

This review is from: PNY XLR8 PRO 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD9SC120GCDA-RB

Pros: Not sure, Price

Cons: Was physically defective when arrived. The Sata III connection was physically malformed, like it didn't mold right. I touched it and it fell off, leaving pins exposed. RMA for another one b/c I really want it to work.

Other Thoughts: If the next one works, I will change review higher.
