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.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible SSD

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

Pros: It's as fast as a 7200rpm HDD until it fails.

Cons: This ssd has caused me so much angst and is one of the worst parts I have ever bought for my PC. All I wanted to do was use it to boot from and have a few programs on and it just failed on me then causing me to have to wipe all of the precious data I had on it and go through hours upon hours of attempting to fix it. It also forced me to wipe my 2 TB WD black HDD which I highly recommend because I had to use that for my OS while I found a new ssd. I can honestly say that if you buy this drive, there is a very high chance that you will not be a very satisfied customer. This one experience with a pny product is what is making me decide to never buy from them ever again. Please take this as a warning and do not buy this if you want a nice, pain free PC.

1 out of 5 eggsError issue with my laptop

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

Pros: -Cheaper for the performance compared to other brands.
-Extra sata cable
-5 year warranty
-Good tech support

Cons: -Standard size ssd, not as thin as newer ssd's. Was a tight fit in my older laptop.
-Was not compatible with my laptop, kept getting error codes when installing windows 7 Pro. Didn't have this issue with other ssd brands.

Other Thoughts: Bought this for my older Samsung laptop (2011) model to speed it up. After installing and trying to load windows 7 pro it kept getting errors in the middle of os installation. Spent a week trying to get it to work and even talked with PNY support, but gave up and RMA for a replacement. Still got the same problem but different error code on the replacement. This ssd worked fine when installing in my desktop but I just couldn't install the os on my laptop. Finally, I just gave up on it and got a samsung 840 evo, couldn't be happier.

Manufacturer Response:

PNY would like to apologize for the inconvenience our SSD has caused you. Please be aware that PNY offers a Warranty on all of our SSD products. Please contact our tech support at 1-800-234-4597 or visit http://www3.pny.com/support/newegg_emailSupport.aspx for assistance and replacement of your SSD product.
