5 out of 5 eggsBeen working great

This review is from: Toshiba Q Series HDTS225XZSTA 256GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Been using it as my main drive for over a year without issue.

Everyone needs an SSD... it makes the computing experience so much more responsive. I feel sorry for those that still have a spinning hard drive.

Cons: Now that it's been a year since I got it, Samsung has come out with a drive for $80 less and has a 5 year warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Performance

This review is from: Toshiba Q Series HDTS225XZSTA 256GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This 2013 SSD is still a rock solid performer and better than +95% of current 2014 SSDs. I would only recommend this drive for someone who is willing to spend money on an professional grade SSD. No decrease in performance after +1 year of constant file transfer use.

Cons: Google it!

Other Thoughts: It is rare any SSD dies. The Crucial MX100 (2014) is better price per GB, but the Toshiba Q (2013) is better performance per GB. The only SSD I have owned that has actually died before 2 years old was an OCZ Agility II.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and reliable

This review is from: Toshiba Q Series HDTS225XZSTA 256GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I only use it to store my System Image so I can only say that the Write speeds are very good cutting down the time to backup my entire OS from 1+ hours to under 10 minutes.

Cons: None after almost 1 year of ownership. Purchased in October of 2013 and working like a champ every day since installation.

5 out of 5 eggsgood solid drive

This review is from: Toshiba Q Series HDTS225XZSTA 256GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: solid performance, no issues with BIOS detection on 5 years old ASUS Mobo. no hiccups installing and fine-tunig for win7.
Lightweight but I did not find it flimsy at all...

Cons: No bracket, no cloning software - but none advertized so not really a CON. still, they should become standard (just like the DVI/VGA adapters in your VC kit)

Other Thoughts: got it on sale for 125CAD - literally a steal - but for equal price I would choose the new SAMsungs.
Close to 50% of all OEMs SSD in Notebooks are made by Toshiba (that includes Apple and MSI) so they are established, just not strong on branding the consumer SSDs yet

5 out of 5 eggsSolid chice

This review is from: Toshiba Q Series HDTS225XZSTA 256GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: small/lightweight - absolutely no issues during install and optimization for win7. speedy and reliable so far - i guess time would tell

Cons: no 3.5 bracket included - but not really a con since none was advertized

Other Thoughts: could not go wrong for the price - got it on sale at $125CAD, but I would not have paid regular price while the new Samsung is priced similarly

5 out of 5 eggsA risk worth taking

This review is from: Toshiba Q Series HDTS225XZSTA 256GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: * Not sandforce
* Price (I paid $150)
* Excellent performance
* Enterprise-level quality
* Toshiba has good customer service
* Very low failure rates.
* Good reviews from tech websites.

Cons: * Could use a paint job
* No software from Toshiba to check drive health or update firmware. Yet....

Other Thoughts: I took a risk when buying this drive. There was very little info available about it and Toshiba is just starting to enter the consumer SSD market.

But, I read good things about the drive from the major tech websites and Toshiba has a good reputation in the enterprise market. Their products tend to be function-over-form, and they don't sell-out their name on junk products just to make a quick buck.

So, I rolled the dice and ended up a winner.
This SSD has performed flawlessly.

3 out of 5 eggsPromising

This review is from: Toshiba Q Series HDTS225XZSTA 256GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Lightning Fast and easy to install. Was quite impressed with speed and price

Cons: Musta got a bad one. Crashes every 4or 5 hours. When rebooting, shows there isn't even a partition present. Two boots later it is back. Time to send it back to Toshiba.

Other Thoughts: I set the alignment, set trim, everything you need to do to make sure this drive will function properly, and it does, for a few hours. Possibly a heat problem. Not good to have a heat problem when putting this in a laptop.
