This review is from: Seagate 600 Pro 240GB 2.5" SATA III MLC Enterprise Solid State Drive ST240FP0021
Pros: Some reviews highly recommended the 600 pro line
Cons: installed to Asus Deluxe/Dual with bios 1305, system only recognized ssd intermitently. Windows 8 would boot intermitently, even if bios recognized ssd.
Other Thoughts: RMA'd drive back to Newegg, still waiting for their results. Installed Samgsung 840 Pro, no problems with that drive. Asked Seagate if I should have used ST***FP0001 instead of FP0021 & their reply was:
The Pro SSD is designed more for server storage and cloud usage. Using this drive on a regular PC, although can be done, does present problems. Windows OS Systems do perform regular system maintenance which will drastically affect the life of an SSD. The drives are only designed to maintain a certain amount of write/rewrite before the drive begins to fail.
Also, performing disk scans and disk defragments on SSD Drives will cause permanent drive damage.
With this in mind, I would recommend using one of our Solid State Hybrid Drives. You will get the same performance as an SSD Drive, but still maintain the ability to handle Windows OS Systems. I hope this helps.
Appears to me that Seagate has no faith in my knowledge of Windows & no faith in their drive for use as a C:\ drive...
