5 out of 5 eggsSolid SSD

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

Pros: 240 GB SSD.

It isn't dead.

Nice finish.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: People like to make a big fuss about SSD benchmarks, but this amounts to splitting hairs for nearly every application. For most people, an SSD is an SSD, you won't notice the difference between this one and some other faster one.

1 out of 5 eggsNot good

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

Pros: Cheap...

Cons: Constantly stutters while writing and reading, and the write speed is cut entirely, also read speeds are abominable with 115MB/s being the fastest it gets, and it goes as low as 10MB/s failing the synthetic benchmarks preparation stage. Playing Fallout New Vegas It would take longer to load a new area on the Optima than it would playing the same save file on my HDD. Maybe I got faulty product, my guess its a bad controller, if that's true then I have two SSD's that I bought at the same time that are both shot.

5 out of 5 eggsSeamless

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

Pros: I put it in my system started and using it. I haven't thought about it since then, it just works.

Cons: As always, price will come down on this. If you want the best price, just wait 10 or 20 years.

Other Thoughts: I reformatted mine to ext4 and I use it to hold all my virtual windows machines.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive for my 2011 MBP

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

Pros: Installation was a cinch. My MBP boots up (power button to desktop) in less than 10 seconds now. All of my large programs (Eclipse, Xcode, IntelliJ IDEA, etc.) boot up WAY faster than they did with the HDD. Updating to this SSD made it seem like I bought a newer model. Because I have had such a good experience with this SSD (and still am), I have decided to purchase another one for my desktop build.

Cons: Would have been nice if PNY included some adapters for normal HDD bays, but luckily the case that I have has drive bays with screw holes for SSDs.

Other Thoughts: So a year and a half ago, I was in the middle of a very busy sophomore year of college. As a computer science major, it was important for my multiple programming applications to start running quickly and have minimal loading time. At this point, I was still running off of a stock HDD that came with my used Macbook Pro. I decided to purchase this PNY Optima 240GB SSD since it was very affordable and had great reviews. I removed the CD drive and placed the old HDD in a caddy that is now in place of the CD drive. That allowed me to boot up and install OS X Mavericks on the new drive very easily.

5 out of 5 eggsNice SSD

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

Pros: No troubles with installation, works.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I upgraded my computer to a 60GB SSD about 6 months ago, but needed more space. This was on sale and after cloning my previous SSD onto this one, I've had no problems.
