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.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and cheap!

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

Pros: Worked great out of the box. No software, but don't need the bloatware anyway. Affordable SSD with enough capacity for my games and media. Blows the 1TB HD it replaced out of the water! Bought several and upgraded all my secondary PCs with this drive.

Cons: Can't take me to the future when prices half again next year.

Other Thoughts: Are other brands that cost twice as much twice as fast? Maybe in benchmarks, but definitely not in daily usage.

5 out of 5 eggsBrought new life to my Asus CrossHair II Formula

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

Pros: Performance, Price, Size This drive blew my (OLD) RAID 0 out of the water on all levels.
(rebate at the time of purchase)

Cons: With the lack of software I find it a con. But will not deduct any eggs beings I knew before I purchased it. And can find resources online.

Other Thoughts: I am amazed how much performance this has added to my old trusty Crosshair II Formula. My boot times are so superior, Game load times are far superior. And just overall it does everything great. I will share some results. I am using this on SATA 2. Crystal Mark results.
Seq. 267.9 Read / 146.3 Write
512K 256.2 Read / 140.1 Write
4K 27.85 Read / 19.12 Write
4KQD32 158.9 Read / 109.1 Write
Now some of you might think thats not all that great. Keep in mind this upgraded 6 year old WD Blue 640GB drives.
This was done after a format earlier this year on my old Blues. RAID 0
Seq. 144.4 Read / 143.5 Write
512K 40.23 Read / 53.88 Write
4K .505 Read / 1.787 Write
4KQD .942 Read / 2.036 Write

If you have an old machine that is sluggish. And your able to find the necessary information if your PC can utilize one of these bad boys. I would not hesitate. I can say without a doubt this is working fine as cherry wine on a Crosshair II Formula. As long as it holds up it has added another year to this build easy.
