3 out of 5 eggsextreamly fast, but

Pros: was very fast at first and boot up was under 10 seconds with windows xp. must be from a fresh windows install on this ssd.
brings new life to a old laptop. speed was even faster then my friends new laptop

Cons: started slowing down really slow read other thoughts

Other Thoughts: ok so everything couldn't be better for the laptop. i upgraded its processor to the fastest the laptop supports. upgraded the memory to 2 gigs and installed wireless N card. had to hack its bios to install anything.
everything was supper except the original 8 year old hard drive was slower then a snail. spent a week online looking for a replacement found out about these pata/ide SSD's read reviews, Wow sounds good . read online reviews for this ssd at multiple stores. not that good at other stores 50/50 change it will work. then read the newegg positive reviews and decided to try

well everything went great , the bios didn't boot to the ssd
a few times during windows installation, but i was determined and followed thru completing the installation and installing updates and programs. everything was great super fast, even faster then a new laptop my friend just purchased . that was until he asked me to install windows 8 on his laptop. anyway

the laptop i installed this drive in was finished i was proud and satisfied. then after it sat for a day no use i went to turn it on,
it wouldn't start 9 times restarting and playing in bios the laptop finally started but startup took 5 minutes . wow that's 4 times slower then the old slow hard drive that this one replaced. to make this short. it got slower and slower and slower and the starting up problem got worse and worse to the point i felt like throwing it out the windows

this drive failed me and i going back to a normal hard drive for the laptop. i fix computers daily and never had a issue like this and upgrade laptops weekly with 100% success for all but this one. i could return for a replacement but the customer needs the laptop as of yesterday and i cant take no more chances. going old school dependable and reliable 2.5 hard drive - unfortunately .i love ssd.that's all i use aside from mass storage and i convince just about
every customer to upgrade to ssd , have not a single unhappy customer yet in 3 decades.

see i the guy that after you go to BestB-y for repair or geek squad or even the local computer store and give them your hard worked money for nothing. then they come to me. i have a wide following from churches to business. practice makes perfect and i had 30+ years of practice and my following shows.

this ssd is the best upgrade you can do for a aging laptop if it works. but you never know unless you try it. just because it didn't work for this laptop doesn't mean it won't work for yours.
i would buy and try this ssd drive again if i get another old laptop to upgrade " not the same one i already tried it with.

5 out of 5 eggsNew life to my old laptop

Pros: Easy to install, very fast

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Breathed life into my old Dell Precision M50. Had one in my closet that was complete except for a drive and was a spare in case the M50 I was using at the time died. I needed a laptop for my new reloading bench to hold data, look up information, etc. Wanted a little snappiness and this drive performs. Even loading the O/S from scratch was fast once the installation files were on the system drive. Boots up super fast. Only thing slowing it down is the slow processor and 1GB of RAM in the laptop!

5 out of 5 eggsSaved my marriage

Pros: Se x is back
Supa fast shipping:
Ordered on 14 Feb, arrived on 22 Feb.
Worked out of the box

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Installed in IBM A30 laptop.
Used default setttings.
Installed Windows 7 Pro 90-day (for test).
Will bump up RAM from 512+128 to 512+512
Waiting on external drive case to transfer data from old drive to new machine after enough testing has been completed (hence the use of the 90-day version of Windows 7).
Unrelated note: needed to install drivers from Windows Update to get sound. Hardware vendor only had drivers up to WinXP.
Definately recommend for anyone who wants to continue to use old hardware.
I have not tried Linux on this.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Was on sale, packaging and unit were great. Runs just fine.

Cons: A very fast SSD is still limited by your computer's HDD connection type (example: SSD 300mB/s and bus max 133mB/s). Small files zoom along and large files are about the same as a HDD. The OS is much snappier when run off the SSD.

4 out of 5 eggsFast, but *REQUIRES* master

Pros: I purchased this thinking that it would be the perfect replacement for the conventional HD in my car.
Well, it *WOULD* have been, had the drive not required being set as 'master'. The car's connector covers all 48 pins, but doesn't have signal on the drive setting; They're still covered, so the jumper block won't fit.
Ah well. It is a very solid, fast drive, despite the limitations of the PATA bus. I cannot comment on its longevity, however.

Cons: As stated above, it didn't work with the Misubishi MMCS due to the 'master' issues. Don't take the jumper block off when sticking this in a laptop, and it should just work.

No real cons, I'd say, though I did take an egg for the master/slave/cable select requirement that a lot of PATA laptop drives don't have or need. Otherwise, it would have worked! Heck, the MMCS even locked the drive, requiring me to unlock it again in order to format it! I *KNOW* it saw it, but the drive just refused to initialize. Ah well!

5 out of 5 eggsIDE SSD

Pros: Fast, Very Fast

Cons: could be bigger cheaper etc..

Other Thoughts: I bought this to upgrade an older model itronix ix260 it runs the on board ata 100 controlelr to its absolute Limit. 97MB/sec and makes it jump like a jack rabbit in debian.
overall it seems to be a great product.

1 out of 5 eggsn/a

Pros: none yet

Cons: Doesn't work in compaq pn495av notebook pc, it is not found by bios. I tried the jumper in every possible position. The pc will boot from old smart-failing-hdd, so I know its ok. The SSD will work on a ide-to-usb dongle but thats not how I want my boot up drive connected to the pc.

Other Thoughts: rma on 1/6/14 & hope replacement drive works better.

4 out of 5 eggsWorking great in an old Fujitsu P1120

Pros: PATA SSD's are rare these days, and this one is a great way to give an older laptop a nice performance boost (though you should max out the RAM first). No special drivers or operating system tweaks are required, since its behaves identically to a mechanical drive.

I bought this about 18 months ago, and it's still running well in my 2003-vintage Fujitsu Lifebook P1120 (a 2.2lb, 9" netbook from before that word had been invented), which has no fan and is now completely silent.

Being limited by the IDE bus and other bottlenecks on such an old system, of course it isn't as fast as a modern SATA SSD, but random access (important during boot-up and application launch) is definitely quicker. Not having to worry about spin-up/spin-down settings, trading off delays and noise vs. power consumption is also nice.

Cons: Minor point, but at least on my unit, the disk-activity indicator remains permanently on-- this is true not only when installed in the netbook, but in a desktop I had it in temporarily, as well as in an external USB enclosure.

Besides rendering that indicator useless for monitoring disk I/O, having another LED constantly lit could slightly decrease battery runtime (though in my Fujitsu it's a non-backlit LCD segment).

Other Thoughts: I didn't notice any significant increase or decrease in battery life, as compared to the Seagate 5400rpm mechanical disk this replaced, which had been set up for aggressive spin-down after just a few seconds' idle time. This is better than an older PATA SSD I used for a while (M-Systems brand, meant more for ruggedized industrial use) than got quite warm, and drew more power than an ordinary HD.

5 out of 5 eggsMakes Compaq Presario not so sorryo

Pros: Worked as expected: Fast! This replaced stock hard drive in wifes annoyingly slow Compaq Presario V2000 (Windows XP Home), along with 2nd gig of RAM (will only accommodate 2GB!). "Honey do" tech support shouts dropped by 90%!.

Cons: None to date.
