1 out of 5 eggsDead at 6 months

This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC240GOPT-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Synchronous-Mode Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It worked ok for 6 months.

Cons: Crashed after Six Months. It was on sale, and it's unfortunate PNY is pushing inferior products, going to try to go through the warranty process.

Other Thoughts: Wouldn't recommend any PNY products.

5 out of 5 eggsNew brand for a new rig

This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC240GOPT-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Synchronous-Mode Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This is my first PNY product ever. So far I am pleased with this SSD. While I wont ever bother benchmarking drive performance, so far I have no reason to believe it is anything less than exactly what I paid for, a good affordable gamers SSD. Time well tell but for now it gets a good review. No issues at all, loads a 64/64 Battlefield 4 map in about 10-15 seconds through my i7-4790k GTX970 build. Can I do any better? Probably not noticeably.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD!

This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC240GOPT-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Synchronous-Mode Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: - Brought new life to old Dell laptop
- Works with Linux Mint x64 great
- 8 second boot

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Only problem I had was initial installation the SSD was not connecting with SATA connection on laptop because of design. Not going to dock an egg for that. Once installed everything was fine installed Linux Mint in about 10 mins.

This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC240GOPT-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Synchronous-Mode Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Not installed yet, but this drive has awesome specs and should ramp my laptop speed up considerably. FAST shipping and had it in 3 days from the time ordered. Extremely happy with the NEWEGG program, processing, and delivery speed. Thanks for all your company did and has done for my I.T. support needs.

Cons: NONE

1 out of 5 eggsDOA, Warranty is a lie.

This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC240GOPT-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Synchronous-Mode Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Nothing, this was a faulty drive.

Cons: The drive i received was faulty. when installing a fresh copy of windows i received error codes synonymous with a bad disk. Ok well, these things happen. only problem, i hadn't tested the drive within the Newegg 30 day warranty (Which is amazing despite the restocking fee).
Phooey i say. Well at least PNY is a respectable company and have a warranty on their product this shouldn't be so difficult. well one week after emailing them, i am told i emailed the wrong department and that i should send my request to technical support. Alright, I did that...three weeks ago. no response from PNY. i will call their technical support line. Hmm how about that, robot voices. connect to a real person? yes please. *ring* click-moan SSD SSD SSD SSD BEEEP. I scratch my head and wait. my phone detects the silence after three minutes of waiting like a fool and asks if i am satisfied with my message. wait....I am on an answering machine? hang up, try again on a seperate business day, same process without me leaving any message.

So Either PNY isn't a real company and is just a warehouse filled with sinister elves who would rather fleece people than bake cookies or-
Their Warranty is a lie, i now have an eighty dollar paper weight.

Other Thoughts: Moral of the Story: always test new tech within a week of arrival so that Newegg can sort these things out for us. and don't buy PNY products. oddly i have been told their tech is usually a gamble but this has been my first faulty device, and hence my first toe in their tech support hotline which is probably purgatory for lust filled robots.

5 out of 5 eggsGood, Value-Oriented SSD

This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC240GOPT-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Synchronous-Mode Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Cheap, cheap and ... well ... cheap. Also, it is a solid state drive.

Cons: Some might dock an egg for the manufacturer's shenanigans with the controller, but I bought this drive because it was a very good value, not because it had the fastest controller.

Other Thoughts: Good drive, great price, anyone who complains about that is nutty.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for HTPC

This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC240GOPT-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Synchronous-Mode Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: MUCH faster than a conventional HDD or SSHD. This is my first SSD and I am impressed by it's speed and responsiveness. I can't compare it to other SSDs, but I can't imagine needing anything faster for it's intended use.

Cons: None for me.

Other Thoughts: Install was a breeze using Acronis True Image to clone old HDD. Cloning 112 GB took 18 minutes with this SSD in a USB3.0 external enclosure.

5 out of 5 eggsMine's working fine after 8 months

This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC240GOPT-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Synchronous-Mode Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I can only review my own experience, and I've had nothing bad to say about this drive. Probably not the fastest SSD out there, but the space is much better than my old 128GB one, speed seems just as fast, and the price was right. I have been rigorous in backing up this PC to both an external and internal HD almost daily. I feel that's a prudent precaution when using ANY SSD drive.

Cons: Cons? Only that other reviewers have not had my experience so it may be a luck-of-the-draw thing. But no cons here.

Other Thoughts: Granted, I mostly play games on this PC so I don't really worry about losing data - and any important data I back up routinely. But what can I say? Mine has worked fine for 8 months with not a hiccup.
