5 out of 5 eggsNice SSD. Very fast.

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

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
Item#: N82E16813128659

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB memory
Item#: N82E16820231428

EVGA 600 B 80 PLUS BRONZE psu
Item#: N82E16817438014

Rosewill RANGER-M case
Item#: N82E16811147122

AMD A8-6600K cpu
Item#: N82E16819113333

PNY XLR8 PRO SSD9SC240GCDA-RB SSD
Item#: N82E16820178453

Asus DVD writer DRW-24F1ST - OEM
Item#: N82E16827135305

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 SSD9SC120GCDA-RB 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

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.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing and Works as expected

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

Pros: Great speeds, easy to install (Win 7), Cloned drive and was up and running! A lot faster using a dual HDD Setup with this as OS and secondary as storage.

Cons: No problems as of yet. Maybe high power usage but that was to be expected and we traded battery life for performance.

Other Thoughts: ! Inside the 120gb sealed/marked box was a 240gb DRIVE!(Obviously not to be expected every time) Added to the excitement of the upgrade!

1 out of 5 eggsget a samsung EVO instead

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

Pros: its an ssd

Cons: No software for the drive, the firmware update tool from their website indentifies the drive but wont update anything and just errors out, the actual benchmarks are far below a Samsung Drive, spend the extra 10-15 and get the samsung and you will not be disappointed .

Other Thoughts: The fact that they had the nerve to put PRO in the naming of this drive is just mind numbing.

I'm not flaming PNY but you have to ask; WHY?

5 out of 5 eggsprice2performance this is amazing

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

Pros: price to performance this thing is amazing. installed windows 8.1 in less than 8 min (for school only) win7 install took a little longer about 10min. open office and many other programs launch almost instantly.

Cons: price dropped after a month, wish i had waited would have grabbed the 240g instead.

Other Thoughts: stay away from windows 8/8.1 if your any sort of power user.

5 out of 5 eggsRAID 0

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

Pros: I am using this drive in a RAID 0 configuration with one other 120GB drive. more to come later but for now it is awesome! Extremely fast drive. comes with a short Sata cable so make sure you have another longer on or you will be in trouble. luckily I have about 10... very sleek look and stays cool.

Cons: short sata cable (although it comes with one so that's not really a negative)

Other Thoughts: Enjoy this awesome drive :-)

5 out of 5 eggsGood Value SSD

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

Pros: Lowest priced 120GB SSD I bought, but performance is up there with others.
Easy OS boot disk loadup with BlackArmor Backup with no issue at all.
Immediately recognized by an ASUS Z77 (intel) and a Hudson D4 (AMD) board.

Cons: None so far but time may tell

Other Thoughts: Considering the recent sale with $10 rebate, the price is very attractive. I upgraded several computers of mine with SSD as my boot disk. Among the Samsung, Seagate, Sandisk regular and extreme ii and OCZ, this one has the best value. The perfomance was among the best. WinSat assessment returns a 8,1 for sequential and random read with a Hudson D4 (AMD A10-5800K) board. This is exactly what I got with the 240 GB Sadisk extreme ii with an Z77 (Intel i7-3770K) board. The Sandisk likely would cost at least $20 more.
The SSD is a 9.5mm thick, whereas my other SSD's are all 7mm thick. It does not make any difference to me since I use it in a desktop, but to some people it may be an issue for tight notebooks or tablets.
