2 out of 5 eggsgood price bad quality

This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC480GOPT-RB 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: cheap and nice at first kinda

Cons: kinda slow compared to others, started giving me problems, it acts like its reading or moving data and jams up and kills my pc, lags it to hell then gives it a blue screen of death then reboots and tells me theres no drive anymore, i go into bios and then exit (i dont change anything lol) and it boots back up....just to do the same thing over and over....RMA'ing this when i buy ANOTHER BRAND to replace it with. PNY makes good thumb drives (i cant destroy them!) but ssds not so good... :-(

1 out of 5 eggsTwo Thumbs Down

This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC480GOPT-RB 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Cheap. Big

Cons: I'll add to the pile of dead drives listed here. Mine started about a week ago not showing up in BIOS or booting. Getting more frequent, and I know I'm on borrowed time. Going to try and return it, but for what? Another piece of junk?

Other Thoughts: Spend an extra 100 and get a real SSD.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked GREAT!...for 3 days

This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC480GOPT-RB 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Very quick! I was impressed with the speed of this thing!

Cons: First 2 days were great. On day 3 I got a blue screen twice and then my computer (and 2 others) quit recognizing it. Completely dead. Thankfully I didn't have much on it. I will not be buying PNY the second time around.

Other Thoughts: Don't waste your money on this "budget buy".

1 out of 5 eggsAnother update after RMA

This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC480GOPT-RB 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: At this point, none, other than the fact that it was cheap.

Cons: after 6 month of use, from july-dec, it failed so I had it RMA. One came in mail looked brand new sealed. However... this one is DOA. If I were you, I would stir clear of this one and probably any PNY SSDs all together.
- First one failed within 6 month
- Second one DOA

Other Thoughts: avoid

1 out of 5 eggsWorked for only 6 Months! Lost EVERYTHING! My entire life, GONE!

This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC480GOPT-RB 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Great size for the price.
Worked amazingly while it lasted

Cons: After almost exactly 6 months of use the SSD just died, stopped working. My computer would not recognize the presence of the drive. Even after putting it in multiple external enclosures on other computers the SSD does not even show up as a device plugged in. I have purchased other PNY SSDs and have had problems with all of them!

THE PRICE TAG MAY SEEM APPEALING! BUT YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!

1 out of 5 eggsupdate from july 2014

This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC480GOPT-RB 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: it worked while it did

Cons: - the drive's random speed performed at about 25~35% of advertised speed. and that is while it did.
- it stopped being recognized after 6 month of very mild use on my desktop. I saw last time i checked, power cycle of about 60~70 times. around 2 TB writing.
- the drive started disappearing in bios at about 5 month point. I wasnt sure what the problem was so I tried switching sata slot, cables and even mobo. didnt stop random disappearance. then finally it disappeared for good.
- I took it to another pc with external dock. after about 10 times of plug/unplug, I got it to appear and formated it. failed the first two formats but it went through. then I brought it back to where it belongs and started fresh install of windows. it was taking 40min and still at 80% expending so I knew immediately that this drive is no good. right now im using a spare 120gb ocz vector 460 which completed the install in about 8min.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect HD Replacement for laptop

This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC480GOPT-RB 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Price, It's an SSD.

Cons: Wasn't looking for the top performer so for the price this one was perfect.

Other Thoughts: HDD replacement for my A10 laptop. I gave up about 500GB but I don't store alot on the laptop so the speed was worth it.

4 out of 5 eggsNice

This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC480GOPT-RB 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Not the fastest but lot faster then any of the HDD that you can upgrade from.

Cons: Didn't came with anything else. Just the SSD in the box with a plastic protector of some sort which it's of no use. I might be a spacer for laptop install?

Other Thoughts: Using it as a secondary SSD for games and such. Runs the games fast enough and lots of room to hold more of it.

1 out of 5 eggsNot so excited

This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC480GOPT-RB 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Good price, large, faster than HD, bit flock reports drive to be in good shape

Cons: slower speed than other SSDs (but I accepted that, it was cheaper, and is still much faster than HD)
my Win7 Lenovo T420 laptop hangs when put in sleep mode since this disl is installed (worked fine with previous SSD from another manufacturer)
my Win7 Lenovo T420 laptop can't find the disk at all (!) when I "reboot" machine. Need to turn off and turn on again, otherwise I end up in network boot mode because laptop can't find boot media

unhiberate takes ungodly long (longer than boot or unhibernate with HD) on my Win7 T420

Other Thoughts: I could if with slower speed than other SSDs, but hangs on sleep, no disk found on reboot, and eternal unhibernate latency make this an undesirable drive for me.
