1 out of 5 eggsGreat drive... While it lasted

This review is from: PNY XLR8 SSD9SC240GMDA-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Very quick

Cons: It failed after a month and a half and now only shows that its a sandforce driver. Sending in for an RMA to see if its a one off since there is no refund on the drive

1 out of 5 eggsDied after 2 months

This review is from: PNY XLR8 SSD9SC240GMDA-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It worked fine when I first got it. As other reviews have stated, the read/write times were not as high as expected, but still higher than an HDD

Cons: Started becoming unstable a couple weeks ago until now, when it has rendered my computer useless. Read/Write speeds that won't go past 2 MB/s, my internet download alone is 3 times that.

Other Thoughts: I decided to take a chance on this drive despite the reviews that said it failed in a short amount of time, but it looks like they showed me wrong.

1 out of 5 eggsfailed out of the blue twice

This review is from: PNY XLR8 SSD9SC240GMDA-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: performance as described

Cons: failed out of the blue twice.

Other Thoughts: i bought this during a budget pc build. four months in, the drive became a paperweight in an instant. not recognised by bios with different cords/ports..
long story short, after 2 weeks, i got an rma. good.
i sent it immediately. it took the expected time to ship and be processed.
i then waited a month without a peep from them as to whethter they tested the drive or inspected it or whatever.
they said that they lost track of my rma and that they would pust it through to the ispection stage
then they waited 6 days to tell me that they needed to process the return of a new/refurbished drive for a little longer since i do not live in the country i purchased it in.
whatever
i wait another 2 weeks and they say my item is cleared and i will recieve a tracking number when it ships.
i wait 2 more weeks and send them an email asking where my tracking number is
they tell me they didnt have it
i get my package two days later
set it up,reinstall windows and install software. hours of my life gone.
drive fails the edact same way 2 weeks later.
this bringss us to now.

i bought an ssd to avaoid drive failure because hdds are more prone to it because of the moving parts and becuse of power consumption and boot time.
i did not account for everything going wrong. twice.

1 out of 5 eggsBarely gets half the rated speeds..

This review is from: PNY XLR8 SSD9SC240GMDA-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Cheap drive

Cons: Even for a sand force based drive this thing is SLOW.

Other Thoughts: I mean it's still faster than a mechanical drive but for the price I'm not very happy about it.

Pros: Worked well for several months

1 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: PNY XLR8 SSD9SC240GMDA-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: the drive was fine...while it worked

Cons: Where to start... The drive was used as the boot drive and after about 2 months of use my system became unstable. The motherboard kept dropping the drive periodically. I thought it was the motherboard because the drive was passing all tests.
I bought a new board and processor this past week and went to do a clean install on the drive and it kept erring out. After running tests on the memory and doing research on this HDD, I came to the conclusion it was the drive. I tried to upgrade the drive's firmware, but the PNY's USA website doesn't offer the download and the European website's firmware reported as incompatible.

I'm going to try an RMA through PNY, but we'll see how that goes
