1 out of 5 eggsG Skill support is the worst!

Pros: None- drive never worked/incompatable with system. But, with the great policies of Newegg, I RMA'd this thing twice only to be able to get the same drive that was know not to work in my system. over $100 in shipping costs and counting until they make it right!!!!!

Cons: G Skill support is so horrible, I cannot begin to explain. I had authorization to RMA the 2nd "replacement" drive back to Gskill to get the NON-FALCON version of their 64GB SSD, only to have Gskill send me another Falcon!!!!!

Other Thoughts: Gskill is by far the poorest communicator I have ever dealt with regarding an RMA. It takes a week to get a reply to an e-mail and it takes over $100 in shipping costs between Newegg and Gskill to make something right.

DO NOT BUY GSKILL PRODUCTS!!!!! Between Newegg's no-refund policy on unproven hardware, and Gskill's inability to provide ANY customer service at all, this is a very bad decision to make!

Dear Customer

We typically do not offer different model exchanges so special authorization and RMA processing is needed to ensure that you receive a different product. Regarding email responses, we will respond to all emails within 72 hours, many times much less, so if you do not receive a response please let us know. Many times emails may be rejected and such depending on your email server and as a result you will not receive our emails. Especially with RMA emails, since we send two attachments, many email servers pick it up as a virus and automatically reject it. We apologize for the inconvenience, if you have any further questions, please feel free to let us know and we will be glad to assis tyou.

Thank you

Quality and customer service are our top priorities.

5 out of 5 eggsFAST!!!!!

Pros: What can you say. Copy and paste a 700mg avi onto my desktop. Its half way done by the time details window pops up. Really fast. Load times for games is really fast. Open a program...and it just does it. Boot times are not what i hoped. But hell im pretty happy with this thing.

Cons: Not that i can come up with yet.

4 out of 5 eggsA Big Upgrade

Pros: It loads my games screamingly fast. It was as large of an upgrade as getting SLI.

Cons: I honestly thought it would load Vista faster than 20 seconds.

Other Thoughts: Can't wait for Windows 7.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. The Falcon SSD is our premiere multi level cell solid state drive. It is ideal for gamers that want the fastest game loading available. Not only are read and write times fast, the seek time is incomparable with normal hard drives which is why SSDs are so great. 20 seconds does seem long for loading Vista, but you may have quite a bit of start up programs causing a slight delay. If you have any issues with your drive, please feel free to contact us and we will be glad to assist you.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD

Pros: Fast, Fast, and once again, Fast. I installed Vista 64 on it and tweaked it. Worked great. Currently running Windows 7 with no changes or tweaks and the thing is great.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsFastest HD I have ever owned

Pros: Just to give you an idea of how quick these little babies really are, my E8600 OC'd to 4.0GHz scores a 7.0 on the Windows 7 experience index, and this drive scores a 7.4. Wow. I am aware that this is like comparing apples and pears, but I am used to the hard drive always being the slowest component in a system (even Raptors). This is now rated as the fastest component in mine. Did I mention that this makes no noise, no vibration, and almost no heat? The fastest mechanical drives out there are universally loud, require special engineering to combat vibration, and are hotter than the face of the sun. That said, how could this NOT be the perfect system drive? Price is beginning to drop too :)

Cons: $/GB, but as a system drive, it kills a Raptor in performance for about the same price.

Other Thoughts: This paired with a 1TB Caviar Black would be a mint setup. I am using it in a Mini ITX system paired with a 500GB Scorpio Blue, an E8600 @ 4GHz, 4GB G.Skill DDR2800, and a GTS 250.

It's the size of a kleenex box and will smite anything in it's path. Gotta love it.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: It works flawlessly in my acer 5735z. I clean installed this disk with win7 rc and did not have one problem. I am amazed how quickly the process took. Boots in less than 20 seconds with pentium 4200.Battery life is much better also. 3 hours up too 3 1/2

Cons: Price is still a premium

Other Thoughts: Everything is snappier. I can really see it

5 out of 5 eggsWORTH IT !

Pros: DOUBLE THE SPEED OF THE WD BLACK 640 THAT I REPLACED WITH THIS. BOOTS LIKE A RACEHORSE AND KEEPS GOING AT TOP SPEED.
THIS IS MAJOR UPGRADE. FORGET i7, GET ONE OF THESE AND ANY CPU WILL DO.

Cons: CAPACITY VS COST

Other Thoughts: THIS IS THE SINGLE MOST SATISFYING UPGRADE - EVER.
MY X48, DDR3, Q9650 SYSTEM WILL KEEP ME HAPPY FOR YEARS WITH THIS DRIVE. THE FALCON CURRENTLY USES THE BEST FIRMWARE OF THIS SSD BREED.

5 out of 5 eggsupgrade supreme

Pros: after installing this on a 790FX system with an X4 955 cpu,
my overclocked X48-DDR3 system with a Q9650 cpu and a WD Black HDD feels very slow.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: applications load in a flash!
