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 eggsNot reliable SSD

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

Pros: • solid construction • Faster that my 2 other SSD.

Cons: this ssd gave new life to an old laptop used by the wife to browse the web and watch youtube and today it hardlocked windows and after rebooting the SSD disappeared from the Bios, checked on my other machines same results.

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
