3 out of 5 eggsAvoid if You Have a Thinkpad

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

Pros: Price was quite reasonable for its size, and the performance specs look good.

Cons: I don't know about other computers, but avoid this if you have a Thinkpad. I had swapped another Thinkpad's drive for a Samsung SSD, using the SW they provide, and it worked perfectly. With this PNY unit, I tried multiple clone SW packages (EaseUS, Clonezilla, Acronis), and it never worked properly. Best result I got was a BSOD trying to boot from the cloned drive. I bought another Samsung SSD, and the process (again) worked perfectly. I can't speak to the usefulness of this SSD with other computers, but, if you have a Thinkpad, I'd avoid it.

1 out of 5 eggsabsolute garbage

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

Pros: Cheap

Cons: These drives are absolute garbage. I've had them for 4 months and they're already starting to get corrupt data on them and just all around act stupid.

Other Thoughts: Stay away! Spend the extra few bucks and get a decent SSD!

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

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

Pros: cheapest SSD per GB

Cons: It arrived DOA. I have installed 10 different SSDs from several different manufacturers (Samsung, Intel, Kingston and Sandisk). This is the first dead one I have received. Of course, because of the rebate, I now have to go through the PNY RMA process rather than just return to Newegg. Will see how long that takes and update.

1 out of 5 eggsVery slow... a lot different from advertisement

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

Pros: Price

Cons: Really slow... read ~300 MB/s write ~ 100 MB/s
Getting more slower with use.

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive in June and have been used it as a boot drive for my i7 4770k desktop for three months. I have used other drive from samsung and crucial before, and this is my first experience with PNY. I knew this is a budget-friendly drive before purchase, but the performance is much poorer than I expect. It even cannot match the performance the company claimed. It only shows ~300MB/s read and ~150MB/s write in Crystalmark test, which is much slower than the speed the PNY advertise.

More worse, this drive becomes more slower as the disk space is getting occupied. Don't be misguided by the reviews, because those are mostly carried out using a new drive (0 Gb used) in general. In real case, I observed that the speed is getting slower in everyday use. Currently, I used about 40% of the disk space for windows 8.1 only, but the speed is much slower compared to that I measured on the day one.

1 out of 5 eggspoor service

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

Pros: cheap for the size

Cons: drive failed to be recognized by bios in the 2nd month. it was hit or miss for start up. with windows 7 and asus mb. item to be rma under warranty. The catch is even though it is a manufacturing issue- i am responsible to shipping to PNY. I will likely not buy from PNY again as their are other ones available for maybe a 10-15$ premium but without the headache of dismantelling a setup waiting and re installing a drive.beside paying shipping to have it fixed under. warranty. It was too late to return to newegg.

Other Thoughts: based on the other reviews i read their is no guarantee that the next one i receive will not be defective as well. I will check and see how much postage costs before I actually use their rma.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible drive. Worse service

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

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: This drive is SLOW! It consistently gives me between 12-18mbps on ATTO Benchmark and my boot-up times are horrible. I've decided that these are signs that something is clearly wrong with the drive. Contacted PNY customer service and received the WORST SUPPORT EVER. 1) They are completely rude and tried to blame me several times for "damaging the drive during install". I've been building PCs since 1998. There's no way I damaged it. 2) They will NOT cover return shipping. 3) The advanced-return service includes a $30 non-refundable FEE! Even Seagate only charges around $8-$10.

I'm forced to clone my drive to my older drive to keep my machine running while I deal with the RMA.

DO NOT BUY FROM PNY!
