1 out of 5 eggsFailed after 12 months

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

Pros: It was reasonably fast while it worked. It worked at the advertised speeds.

Cons: Failed after 12 months, awaiting RMA.

Other Thoughts: I started to have serious problems with this drive about 9 months after I purchased it. Thankfully, it has a 3 year warranty. I've had terrible experiences with these drives and will not purchase another PNY SSD in the near future. I wish they would just give me my money back, at this point.

1 out of 5 eggsToo slow

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

Pros: None

Cons: SSD writes less than 5MB/sec

Contacted support and will have to mail the SSD in for replacement while I'm stuck without a drive for who knows how long. I don't care if that is their standard practice. I'm the customer and should not be inconvenienced because I was sent bad hardware.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper fast and reliable SSD

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

Pros: After a year and a half and 480 hrs. it is 100% GOOD according to Crystaldiskinfo, this baby is still going strong Super fast and super reliable. Never had any problems. Shows no signs of quitting. Running out of space but that is to be expected with a drive this size. Only have games and programs on this system drive, all major data folders moved off to internal 1T HHD. Love this drive and great price when purchased. Thanks PNY.

Cons: Finally got the $30 rebate after a year and a half, but that's not Neweggs fault.

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)
