1 out of 5 eggsUnbelievably bad experience

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

Pros: None really thus far... had a lot of issues with the SSD lagging and freezing up as a external hard drive.

Cons: Had trouble with the first one, Newegg told me to send it to PNY for a replacement since it was lagging and freezing up.

PNY was pretty good and sent me a "new one", but it had the same exact problem. I literally got the OS installed and from then on constant freezing and non-responsive programs. I'm not sure if I got a couple of bad SSD's, but haven't had any trouble with other brands.

2 out of 5 eggsMaybe I got a bad one?

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

Pros: Cheap cost per gigabyte.

Cons: Super slow with Windows 8.1.

Other Thoughts: Maybe I got a defective one but used as the OS drive it was very laggy and eventually had errors all in a couple weeks time. I bought a Sandisk Extreme Pro to replace it and it was instantly a huge improvement. So either I got unlucky with mine or "you get what you pay for".

5 out of 5 eggsGreat deal

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

Pros: Economical

Fast

reliable so far.

Fast rebate turnaround times.

Cons: Had to fill out rebates :(.

Other Thoughts: Very nice SSDs. I bought 3 of them for $90 each after rbate.

Rebate took a little over a month. I order June 27 and got my rebate last week.

A++ for rebate service.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Replacement For My Laptop HD

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

Pros: I replaced the mechanical 5400 RPM HD on my Lenovo Laptop running Win 8.1. No problems and the laptop is much, much faster when booting or returning from hibernate. Boot time went from 100 seconds + to about 10 seconds. I suppose it's also faster when doing other things, but I never had a problem with the mechanical drive in that respect. I did not make any other speed measurements, because the boot speed reduction is what I was looking for.. I suppose the battery life is longer, but I rarely need to use it longer than an hour without plugging it in.plugging it in. No failures or hiccups in the month that I've been using it. I have a Samsung 256 GB SSD on my desktop and see no difference between the two from a day to day user's perspective.

Cons: Truly bare-bones. Very little in the way of documentation and no software provided for cloning. WIN 8 takes care of the software part of it.

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive to replace my 750 GB 5400 RPM Lenovo Laptop hard drive which was too slow. The huge reduction in storage space worked for me because I eliminated the operating system backup partition (which I still have on the original drive) and because my major storage is done on an NAS. An easy clone of the Lenovo was achieved using Macrium Reflect free edition and an external USB docking station.

1 out of 5 eggsSlooooow SSD

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

Pros: None.

Cons: 15mb/s read/write speeds across a few benchmarks. My computer is functioning for the time being, but this is slower than my regular HDD. Installation was a headache and took two reinstalls of Windows 7 for this drive to even show up in the BIOS properly. Horribly slow boot times, worse than ever before.

Other Thoughts: I will be sending this back and have already ordered a Samsung 540 EVO.

4 out of 5 eggsNot sure yet, maybe good.

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

Pros: Cheap, looks cool, fast

Cons: I'm not sure, but i have been having some issues. I think it's this SSD, but i'm not sure yet. I built a PC for a friend and every now and then when you reboot it, it doesn't see the hard drive. (this SSD). I think it's going bad, or came bad. Not sure yet though..

Other Thoughts: On SSD's i would spend a little more next time and get Kingston. More reliable.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD

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

Pros: High performance SSD. Upgraded from my old 320GB HDD and my computer flys.

Cons: No 2.5" to 3.5" adapter with it, but with 99% of modern cases supporting the 2.5" size, not really a big deal.

4 out of 5 eggsGood SSD, but ignore after rebate price

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

Pros: -Windows boots so fast now and programs launch almost instantaneously.

-Fast for the price* (see other thoughts)

-Sturdy metal case

Cons: -No sata cable included

-Rebate is a joke (see other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: I am great with rebates, I've almost exclusively built a computer using only parts that had rebates and I've received every one of them.

However this PNY rebate is the exception. PNY claims that my purchase date was invalid. Looking through my records and at the fine print on their form... nope I am definitively eligible for the rebate and I even mailed the rebate form weeks before the final deadline.

Looking at the other reviews for this SSD others also had problems with not receiving their rebate. So if you are thinking of getting the drive for the price after rebate... you won't.

4 out of 5 eggsFirst drive bad, second one super fast.

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

Pros: -Benchmarks faster than the Samsung EVO using Samsung Magician.
-Price/gb is nice on these drives.
-RMA and technical support work very well. Something of a rarity these days.

Cons: -First drive I received had issues (bad data cells), could not RMA through Newegg due to rebate. Thankfully, PNY RMA worked well.
-Speeds are not the fastest possible, but adequate for the price
-SMI controller is not quite as quick as SandForce, but each controller has it's fans...

Other Thoughts: I initially purchased this SSD to run my OS from and store a few slow loading games. The OS install went poorly and it turned out that the drive had errors. I tried RMAing through Newegg, but could not as I had already sent in the rebate. Thankfully PNY tech support and the RMA process through them was smooth and easy. I actually received the replacement drive only 2 business days after they received my bad drive.

I am very happy with the new drive. As mentioned, the drive actually benchmarks faster than the more costly Samsung EVO. Now I just use it as program and game storage for anything I want to load (near) instantly. I would buy this drive again, even with the bad first drive, but only if on sale. If another drive of the same size was the same price, I would probably go with the other drive.
