1 out of 5 eggsFailing, No RMA Allowed.

This review is from: PNY XLR8 SSD9SC240GMDA-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It's an SSD, it loads fast lots of space.

Cons: The drive started to fail 3 months in. Sectors are already dying.

So it is a year in, and now the CDI of the drive has dropped the percentage from 100% to 97%. There are random slowdowns, and I lost some files from my Sims 3 game. Yay?

I called PNY b/c their site doesn't have a working page for consumer RMAs. Yay part 2?

This is what PNY told me:
> If the drive is working, we are going to send it back to you.

> If you want us to cross-ship, there is a $30 non-refundable fee, plus the cost of the drive. No way. Corsair does cross-ship, and only requires that the sender pay the shipping fee.

> PNY offers no tools to do drive SMART checking. But they don't want you to use a 3rd party to check drives. So you get nothing.

> Try it in another computer? I don't have a billion PCs to test this thing in?

All I can say is, do not buy this drive, and do not buy from PNY. I will be attempting to reprocess this through my credit card and warranty there.

Other Thoughts: Not buying from PNY again unless the drive is like $5.

2 out of 5 eggsGARBAGE

This review is from: PNY XLR8 SSD9SC240GMDA-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: While it lasted it worked well

Cons: Failed after less than 3 months

Other Thoughts: DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM!!! I got this less than 4 months ago and it worked awesome for about 2; after that it just crapped out and will not even show up in the bios more than half the time... occasionally it will work and boot from it and even then it is glacial slow and always ends up making the whole system crash. I was naive to not listen to reviews that were on here... MY advice, go with the Samsung 850 EVO or 850 PRO, much better drive for the same price..

2 out of 5 eggsPass this one up

This review is from: PNY XLR8 SSD9SC240GMDA-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast

Cons: Was turning off and unstable since the install but worked none the less. After 5 months it died completely.

Other Thoughts: The company is not open on weekends you will just get a circle tree of an answering system. I got them first thing Monday morning. They asked for my receipt and are sending me a new one after I send them the failed one.
The time lost does not compensate for the $120 I spent.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed after 1 month

This review is from: PNY XLR8 SSD9SC240GMDA-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: was extremely fast

Cons: Died within the first 90 days, RMA did not go through, mailed it in within time limit and never got a replacement, i assume it got lost in the mail i dont believe any customer service department would mess up that bad

Other Thoughts: I will not be buying another PNY SSD ever again, or any PNY tech at all

1 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: PNY XLR8 SSD9SC240GMDA-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Quick and worked as designed for the first 3 weeks.

Cons: Failed after 3 weeks of use and approximately 5 weeks after ordering. I will be going through PNY for the repair. Just to verify failure I tried a different SATA port and cable and my BIOS just won't recognize this drive any more. Also after reading recent reviews it seems this is pretty common lately for this drive.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid like the PLAGUE!@!

This review is from: PNY XLR8 SSD9SC240GMDA-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Works WONDERFUL for less than 1 year.

Cons: Works for less then 1 year.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this drive on Jul 3rd of 2014 from New Egg. It started to die two weeks ago. The drive basically started to write at less then 1 MB/s. If you are using this as a boot drive, and your computer starts running very slow, most likely your drive is dying. Now I will get to see how good PNY warranty service is.

This review is from: PNY XLR8 SSD9SC240GMDA-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It was very fast. It was a great boot drive.
3-year warranty

Cons: Out of the blue, it just died. I went to boot up my machine & it's not even listed in the BIOS.

Other Thoughts: I hope the replacement I get after my RMA goes through is more reliable.
