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

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.

1 out of 5 eggsDead after 2.5 Months

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

Pros: Cheap & Fast

Cons: Early failure

Other Thoughts: Purchased 2, arranged in a Raid 0 2.5 months ago. They have worked fine up to this point. Turned on computer tonight and one is completely dead. Not recognized in bios. Gotta go see how good PNY's warranty service is. What a PAIN!

4 out of 5 eggsHIGH RELIABILITY but perhaps a bit slow

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

Pros: PNY pro review stated 'enterprise' 25 nm NAND is used {part number ---ME1}. Heavy solid metal case. 5 year warranty

Cons: 'UserBenchmark' on-line utility says SSD is a bit slow compared to others like Samsung EVO, etc..

Other Thoughts: Can't remove screws to see NAND labels because of warranty

5 out of 5 eggsNice Fast SSD!

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

Pros: The PNY XLR8 Pro 240GB has turned out to be much better than my 120GB HyperX 3k's but we all know the smaller drives just don't perform as well. It is in my SATA II laptop but I did benckmark it in my desktop.

CDM:

Seq: 505.3 514.7
512k: 464.1 503.2
4k : 31.16 72.11
4k
QD32: 205.8 362.0

This was on an I5-3570K AT 4.3 GHz

It's a pretty good Sandforce based SSD.

Be sure to register at PNY for 2 additional years warranty!!!!!
TOTAL 5 YEAR WARRANTY!!!!

I also bought an OCZ Vertex 460 240GB that has not arrived yet. Look for a short report on it. I didn't do a lot of tests beyond basic performance to make sure it was not defective.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: Only time will tell about durability but it is well built and feels solid.
Not as flashy as some others but still looks very nice.

Go to the PNY EU site to get FW 5.04, 5.05 and 5.07.
Mine had 5.42 I think and I updated it to FW 5.60 from the US site which did improve it.

You can't down grade it but you never know what might come about in the future so I downloaded the other FW just to have.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks like a Timex watch - Solid & reliable

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

Pros: I'm always pleased when something simply works well without jumping through hoops. I don't bother with benchmarks. It's fast. It's silent. It's cool, low power.

Cons: Not a one. Been doing business with Newegg for about ten years, but bought this on sale from a store in the Rain Forest with really tall people.

Other Thoughts: I'd ignore Elmer's review. You can't ping PNY because Windows 7 backup/restore is NOT a cloning application. I'm sure a fresh install would have worked just fine. I just hate reviews where the product is dinged because the person doesn't know what they are doing.

Good drive - good price.
