5 out of 5 eggsTop Notch

This review is from: PNY XLR8 PRO SSD9SC240GCDA-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast and low power for a laptop. Using this in my portable DAW laptop and it loads my sounds super quick.

Cons: None so far. These things are always hit or miss as far as longevity so time will tell.

Other Thoughts: Five year warranty for registering is really nice but I hope I won't have to use it any time soon

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect!

This review is from: PNY XLR8 PRO SSD9SC240GCDA-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: FAST!

SATA III / 6Gbps

240GB (223GB usable)

Read/Write Speeds as advertized*

*170MB/s to over 400MB/s for real world file transfers. Moving a large folder of random sized files and folders I averaged between 175MB/s and 250MB/s.
I hit an average of 400MB/s transferring a 33GB .vdi file (virtual hard disk for VirtualBox) to and from an SSD array(Raid 0).

Price! Caught it on a great sale!

3 Year Warranty

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Interesting Note: Advertised as having 128-Bit AES encryption, however the back of the box states:

"Security:
256-bit AES compliant data encryption support
Supports user selectable password prior to boot
Supports user selectable password runtime "

Thought that may be helpful to those interested.


This is my new OS/boot drive. Previously was using an XLR8(non-pro) 120GB SSD as boot with another XLR8 120GB(non-pro) as additional storage. I found myself getting tight on storage space and wanted to get a larger OS drive for programs and some files. As I liked the 120GB XLR8 drives so much I decided to buy the next size up. I got the Pro version this time as it cost as much as the standard version at the time I purchased it.

I decided to set up the two standard XLR8's that I was previously using in RAID 0 and now have an additional 223GB of storage outside my new OS drive. I couldn't be happier with the performance and space available on my machine.

I would recommend this drive and brand to anyone.

Pros: Works great.

5 out of 5 eggsAn awesome product

This review is from: PNY XLR8 PRO SSD9SC240GCDA-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Is super fast, all my games load in seconds and from turning my pc on to browsing the internet only takes 30 seconds or so. Very reasonable price and goes on sale fairly often

Cons: Doesn't come with mounting screws so make sure you have some available or another way to mount it.

This review is from: PNY XLR8 PRO SSD9SC240GCDA-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Picked this up at Christmas and installed it in a new i7-4770k-powered system. The speed increase of this over the old spinning platter drive is downright amazing. There are some faster SSD's out there, but not at this price point. Between the price and the 5-year warranty I decided to give it a try. So far I'm very pleased!

Cons: PNY doesn't have the cool software tools that companies like Samsung and Intel provide for their SSD's.

Other Thoughts: For easy cloning to your new SSD, check out macrium dot com slash reflectfree.aspx to download a free copy of Macrium Reflect.

4 out of 5 eggsrebate confusion

This review is from: PNY XLR8 PRO SSD9SC240GCDA-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I purchased 2 of these as gifts and sent them to my daughter who lives in another state, so I have no experience as to their performance, but she has told me that they work well and improved the performance of her computers.

Cons: I sent in the required documents to receive the rebates and was very careful to follow the instructions. After a month, the PNY website still has no info about my rebates. I've been building my own computers for about 25 years, and have purchased many PNY products, and have made many purchases from Newegg. If my rebates don't come through, two things are going to happen. I will never purchase another PNY product, and I will never make another purchase from Newegg.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat drive with few issues

This review is from: PNY XLR8 PRO SSD9SC240GCDA-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Drive is fast a huge upgrade from 10k rpm velociraptor. Easy install of Windows took 10 minutes, and installing is quick. got for 139 bucks so price was good happy with purchase.

Cons: Not hitting speeds posted but I believe it is my old 2nd gen you extreme4 holding it back.
Drive was only 120gb not the stated 240 or even close.. 20gbs is quite a loss on a small drive and boosts price up.
