3 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

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

Pros: Was an SSD, did work fairly well when it worked, got it for a great price. It was installed as a secondary drive.

Cons: Got it in July, it cratered in March. It wasn't used as a primary drive, only a secondary storage drive. So it wasn't being put under a lot of stress.

Other Thoughts: Luckily data loss was minimal, but I'll have to RMA it and pay for the shipping.

2 out of 5 eggsDecent while it lasts

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

Pros: I can't compare it to other SSD's, for lack of experience, but it was fast enough I noticed a significant difference over platter SATA III drives.

Cons: It died right at 5 months of use. Some may say placing your OS on the drive wears it out too quickly, but it should last far longer than 5 months.
The death was sudden and unexpected, so I don't think the drive felt any pain at least.

2 out of 5 eggs10 Month Try and Die

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

Pros: Low cost, Fast, 3 Year Warranty

Cons: Died in only 10 months or light use. The thing about SSD's is that when they die, it's a quick and sudden death.

Advice, keep your receipt, and always have a backup. I did. Used Acronis 2014 which recovered everything just fine.

Other Thoughts: I'd still buy another.

2 out of 5 eggsBad Service

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

Pros: Hard drive is fast. Good value for performance vs. price.

Cons: Very bad warranty service. My PNY SSD died 4 weeks ago. It could not be accessed in other known good systems or by using a SATA to USB device.

I was quickly given an RMA from PNY. However, they have had my SSD for almost 3 weeks and have not given me any updates despite my inquiries. 3 weeks may be fine for some people, but not for people who use their PC for work. I have a lot of experience with RMAs being a Network Engineer and former system builder. And 3 weeks sitting on a bad drive is a horrible turn-around time when compared to other brands I have used.

Other Thoughts: These drives may be a good value for many home users. However, due to their unacceptable turn-around time on warranty claims, I recommend business users and system builders choose a different brand like Intel, Crucial, or Samsung who have a 2 - 4 day turn around (in my experience)

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Drive

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

Pros: Pretty fast drive. 5 yr warranty with registration. Drive manufactured in USA.

Cons: Died within a month.

Other Thoughts: RMA was fast. Sent it out on a Wednesday, they received it the following Monday, and I had the replacement by Friday.
Haven't used the replacement much since I received it.

2 out of 5 eggsEH, wouldnt buy again

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

Pros: no many

Cons: mine maybe gets 300 mb/s after less than 8 months of useage, barely used other than OS installation and a game. PNY tech support is useless in help and wont give me a time for my return. For someone who uses my computer daily for work and school having down time of 2+ weeks is completely unacceptable for me and PNY not offering to do anything to help me in my mind a terrible customer support decision on their part. I will say i bought a Samsung EVO and will only buy those from now on. As of 3 months it still out performs what is was rated for

Other Thoughts: Like stated in cons, i would not buy this product because PNY barely stands buy it. You would be better off buying anything else.
