1 out of 5 eggsBad Support/Bad Product

Pros: Speed - Its a SSD.

Cons: Product support. Product is not listed on support website. Product support is very lacking to nonexistent.

Other Thoughts: I bought 5 of these Toshiba Q series 256GB SSD drive. I sent one back to newegg because it was unneeded. I had one go out on me in January. The 256Q series drive is not listed on Toshiba's support site. I had to call in. When I called in I was able to get a representative. I RMA'd my drive (1 of 4) and informed them that the device is not listed on thier website. I get my RMA # on 1/23 and ship it on 2/10. UPS showes it is received on 2/17. I check on Friday 2/21 and call in and am assured that it is received. I check today 2/24 and it says return to sender. I call in 2 times and get the wrong department (laptop support) and they will not xfer me to the correct department. I call back and get the Toshiba HDD department and go in the call queue and then it rings and says please wait and then disconnects me. Toshiba support is seriously lacking. I will not recommend a product that a company will not stand behind or support.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid if your computer uses MCP79 chipset

Pros: Same benefits of any SSD.

Includes SATA to USB adaptor.

Cons: Utter lack of any technical support. When you call them, you only speak to people with little to no knowledge of computers. When asked if there were any tier 2 or 3 techs, my call was transferred to a supervisor who was equally clueless. Emailing them resulted in no replies.

If your computer uses Nvidia MCP79 chipset, avoid this SSD. It will only run at SATA 1 speeds with negotiated link speed of 1.5 gigabits even though your system is capable of SATA 2. This will effectively handicap the SSD speeds to a max of about 110MB/s (similar to a fast platter based hard drive).

Other SSD manufacturers who encountered this issue ended up issuing firmware updates to fix it, but Toshiba seems to have no plans in offering a fix.

* Note: Many MacBooks and MacBook Pros use the MCP79 chipset.

Other Thoughts: Toshiba needs to overhaul their support system and staff. In its current form, it is completely useless and provides no help.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic so far

Pros: Boots FAST
Contains every possible accessory
Decent size

Cons: Price went up since I bought it

Other Thoughts: The kit contains everything you could possibly need - mounting bracket, screws, cable, cloning software, even a cheap USB adapter (which requires two plugs). I didn't need the adapter or software since this was a new build but appreciated everything else. Now Windows 7 finishes booting even before the flying dots are fully formed in the animation!

5 out of 5 eggsFast SSD

Pros: Fast, affordable, no excuses not to upgrade your OS drive to an SSD.

Cons: Construction is on the cheap side, but unless you plan to throw it against a wall, I don't foresee any problems.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast if coming from HDD.
Got at $149 (bought 2)
Works with MacBookPro 15' 2011
Comes with SATA-USB adapter for easy migration/cloning

Cons: not the fastest, but for those upgrading from HDD you can't go wrong

Other Thoughts: the upgrade kit came in handy. I previously had a 128gb Plextor ssd in my MBP 2011, but was just too small. Jumped on 256gb version of this Toshiba.

Plug SATA-USB adapter, used cloning software (Carbon Clone for Mac), transferred about 70gb which took roughly 15-20min, swap-out the 128gb ssd with the new 256 ssd, booted up, enjoy more space.

running blackmagic benchmark I was getting Write: 450mb/s and 510mb/s

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect kit for replacing a drive

Pros: came with disk and transfer cable to get your hard drive completely formatted with minimal effort. drive seems to be fast on start up and in use.

Cons: size is smaller than my old disk drive but that's the price of switching to solid state drive
