4 out of 5 eggsGreat size, great price

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

Pros: Price, Mid-range Performance, Space

Cons: No manufacture software like other drives, other than 2 sata cables no extras but the box and packaging were nice.

Not really a con but it gets 4 stars instead of 5 for not being the complete package but I'm one happy customer.

Other Thoughts: Happy with this as a budget minded mid-range SSD

1 out of 5 eggsLikes to forget your stuff.

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

Pros: It has a nice shape.

Cons: Looses drivers upon reboot, resets your clock upon entering sleep mode, this SSD proves to be a security risk and a blatant hassle. A huge waste of time chasing drivers everyday. DO NOT BUY THIS GARBAGE.

Other Thoughts: It is NOT an item you can get a refund for, they will only send you a new equally worthless item.

2 out of 5 eggsNot Recommended

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

Pros: decent speed

Cons: Bad Warranty and support, No software, not slim,

Other Thoughts: You cannot count on the warranty because their support is a answering machine that asks to leave a message and phone number and they don't call back. So you can't even contact the support.
This SSD is thicker than most others so you can't use it for newer laptops and ultrabooks that need slim ones.
It doesn't come with migration software and free and trial ones have a lot of limitations most of them don't support .
Win 8.
I highly recommend to pay a few bucks more and get a good brand SSD. I didn't and I regret it.

1 out of 5 eggsDied within 48 hours

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

Pros: It probably would be good if it actually worked. It worked for 48 hours and just died. dead. You've got to hate manufacturers for not testing.

Cons: It probably would be good if it actually worked. It worked for 48 hours and just died. dead.
Shame on PNY

Other Thoughts: I just get new and sealed garbage from PNY

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice drive

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

Pros: Drive is very fast in my 2007 iMac. Applications and files launch much faster, but for some reason, the start up time is slow - and slower than in my 2007 MacBook Pro that I installed a SSD in earlier, but I don't think the drive is the issue.

Cons: I'm only giving it four stars since the first drive I ordered was only recognized intermittently and I had to RMA it and get a replacement, but occasional failures are part of the game. Second one works fine and Newegg made the replacement easy.

Other Thoughts: Very happy with the drive. With the iMac limitation of 4 Gb of RAM, hitting virtual memory off the old hard drive made the iMac almost painful to use. With the PNY, the pain is gone and it's now worth keeping, and at the Newegg price, it's a lot cheaper than a new machine.

1 out of 5 eggsDied in less than a month

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

Pros: Drive runs very fast

Cons: Ordered two drives, the first one suddenly died on me when my computer was sitting idle on my desktop within the first week, and then the second one suddenly died on me while I was playing a computer game, within the first month. No longer have faith in this brand name.

1 out of 5 eggsWrong Specs

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

Pros: Have no idea

Cons: The label on the box says:

Max sequential read 400 MB/s
Max sequential write 400 MB/s
4KB Random Read up to 70,000 IOPS
4KB Random Write up to 45,000 IOPS

not 500/475/60,000/60,000 as stated on new e.g. website.

Other Thoughts: Wrong specs are really annoying. Write speed was a main reason for choosing this drive - feel duped.

As always shipping was blazing fast.

5 out of 5 eggsfast drive

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

Pros: Worked right out of the box. Included SATA cable is a plus. Fast for an older SSD.

Cons: Newegg needs to change the description because the read and write speeds are only about 400mb/s
