1 out of 5 eggsThe SSD just stops working.....

Pros: Fast when it works?

Cons: I have had this for 3 weeks and installed Win 7. Twice my PC would reboot to black screen and the bios wouldn't recognize the drive. I would have to turn off PC for 10 min and then it would work again. Stay away from this!!!!

1 out of 5 eggsCheap unreliable product

Pros: Works great when it wants to work.

Cons: This ssd keeps dropping and being the windows drive that's not good. After turning the system off for a hour or so the drive will show up again and boot. Working for a day or two at a time before dropping off the face of the planet for a 1-3 hours.

Other Thoughts: Thankfully it does decide to work again was able to clone it to a new Adata 240gb ssd and all is well. Honestly i put all my faith in samsung ssd's and this is what happens when you try to go budget. Word to the wise two things in your PC you should never cheap out on are SSD and the power supply, spend the extra 20$ and life will be good lol

5 out of 5 eggsGood Performance for a Good Price

Pros: -Price. The price per GB on 120GB drives doesn't match what you can get on larger drives, but in the 120GB class this drive is currently in the lowest priced bracket at $0.33 per GB
-Performance. This drive showed unexpectedly good performance in 4K reads - a good indicator of 'speediness' in regular desktop workloads.
-Packaging. The packaging was easy to open. The drive was packaged in a plastic bag inside a molded plastic insert inside a cardboard box.

Cons: -The Warranty Stickers. The tiny warranty stickers don't adhere to the case very well at all. I would hate for this to be an issue in the event I have to send the drive in under warranty.
-Packaging. The product was shipped inside a yellow bubble envelope and one corner of the product box was smashed. The drive was undamaged but it's still slightly annoying to have a new product with a smashed box.

Other Thoughts: The drive is still new so I can't speak to long term reliability.

I haven't had to send in any SSDs to Team Group for warranty replacement, but I have had to send in some RAM and I found the process to be easy enough.

The benchmark below was run on a Windows 7 x64 PC with an Ivy Bridge i5 and a Z75 chipset. The drive was formatted NTFS and attached as a secondary.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat budget SSD

Pros: - Fast boot
- Went well with my blue theme

Cons: - None noted

Other Thoughts: I'm far from an SSD expert but if you need to fit one in on a tight budget, I would recommend this drive. Team, from what I can tell, is new to the SSD market but I decided to take a risk on them. I have not had any issues what so ever and the performance is what you would expect.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good for it's price!

Pros: Installed it and did a speed test and it came out to 424R/170W Big jump from my HDD which was 60R/60W. If you looking for an upgrade from an HDD to SSD but are tight on $ look no further.

Cons: The advertised read/write speeds are done with ATTO benchmark. I did that test and it wasn't lying.

Other Thoughts: I'd recommend this, Maybe later I'll save some more $ and get one with a higher capacity.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive for the price.

Pros: Works well, pretty fast overall, good cheap upgrade for an older laptop or desktop.

Cons: None at the moment.

Other Thoughts: Purchased as an upgrade for general use HP G62-407DX laptop since it's 320GB 5400rpm HD was slowing down and failed some tests. Replacement was easy and uneventful. Installed fresh copy of Windows 7 Ultimate, then did free upgrade to Windows 10 Pro, then ran all the updates and customizations with no noticeable issues. It's been running pretty smooth since. Overall the upgrade was well worth it. The improvement in boot speed and general operations is immense and impressive. On a side note: If running Windows 8 or 7 or older on an SSD, make sure TRIM command is enabled and any automatic defragmentation or drive optimization tools are disabled to not shorten it's lifespan and cause premature failure.

1 out of 5 eggs24 hour DOA

Pros: Got 8 second boot (while it worked)

Cons: The first day was fine, until it said "DRIVE IS INACCESSIBLE", so I contacted Teamgroup but they're based in tiwan, so I couldn't understand them and from what I could understand they were totally incompetent., finally I talked to someone who kinda knew somewhat what they were talking about, then they sent me an RMA form which made absolutely no sense, and would take days to weeks to process.

Other Thoughts: Just spend the extra 20 bucks and get yourself a Samsung, Intel, Hyper X, Kingston or Cruical. you'll thank yourself in the end because your data will still exist and not be lost in cyberspace.

5 out of 5 eggsTripled the speed of my PS3

Pros: What can I say here other than it works. Games load in far less than half the time it used to even though the PS3 isn't sata 3.

Cons: I can't speak to the actual read/write speed but I have no reason to believe its any thing less than it says.
