4 out of 5 eggsSped up 6-year-old eMachine Desktop

Pros: Cost. On sale, this was a very competitive unit.

Cons: Warranty stickers were loose and not adhering to unit

Other Thoughts: Used Acronius to clone factory Seagate HDD in Athlon II based eMachine desktop. Cloning went smooth as did install with 3.5 to 2.5 Rosewill HDD/SDD adapter. Boot time cut by about 50%. System sleep and other functions working fine for 30+ days.

3 out of 5 eggsNoise??

Pros: Faster than my old sata2 SSD. It was pretty cheap after promo.

Cons: This is new to me but apparently this is not new. There's whining and buzzing during access.Sounds like electrical whining and web search says it's resonance of electrical components. Sounds more like electricity jumping all over the place to me. I'm concerned about my data.

Other Thoughts: Surprised me when it was so much lighter than my old SSD. Wonder what's missing from it. LOL That buzzing and whining sound is bothersome and pretty loud. I didn't find anyone talk in depth about this or if it's a concern.

4 out of 5 eggsValue SSD

Pros: installed in parents a-6 quad laptop. had to do fresh install as original volume would not shrink to fit onto this ssd. perked up laptop to a useable state and upgraded allthe way to win10. chrome opens and is responsive in a reasonable time instead of 2-5 minutes or never lol

Cons: none yet. will update if drive fails

Other Thoughts: upgraded laptop to keep rents from buying new laptop for a couple years gave them basically a brand new machine the amd a6 mobile quad is brutally slow and this breathed new life into it they have a fresh install of win 10 and a backup mobile hd for photos an such now i also bought one for myself for a kabini itx build to mess around with so i have a couple samples to review and maybe influence future purchases Team is like the old vizio value product that is reliable i use their memory for budget builds hopefully they stay in that category and dont try to be a mainstream higher end competitor but good luck to them if they do Team hasnt let me down yet

5 out of 5 eggsThis is an excellent deal

Pros: Very inexpensive. Very nice read speeds.

Cons: Writes... meh

Void warrantee stickers were actually broken when it arrived...

Other Thoughts: Great way to jump into an SSD. I'm using this as an OS drive for my media PC. I've never had an SSD fail on me. I will update here if I run into reliability issues.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works!

Pros: Cheap

Cons: As others have said, the warranty stickers were already off and in the box when I opened the packaging. Hope they understand this if I ever need warranty return.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to upgrade an aging laptop. Although I understood that in an older PC I will not reap the full benefits of an SSD simply because the bandwidth isn't there in the SATA connection. I have done the same now with 2 PC's and another laptop and all have benefited from the upgrade. In fact, now, no PC's in my house have mechanical hard drives anymore.But... those were with other brands of SSDs. This SSD, while it did help, was not as much as a help than the others. I am not sure if it is the SSD or the laptop, so I didn't remove any "eggs" from teh score.

1 out of 5 eggssomething fishie

Pros: none seen thus far

Cons: My wife just received this product today: for starters the card was NOT inside the anti-static package, but the anti-static packaging was located behind the display packaging with the sealing sticker obviously ripped. next thing that is way off is the card itself is way too light, I mean we are talking a few grams when the whole unit should be weighing ounces( this has me thinking the unit has been gutted of the solid state components), and lastly we pull the thing out and turn it over, low and behold the warranty void stickers have been removed

Other Thoughts: I'll be plugging this card in tomorrow( I won't open it up even though at this point I'm 99.99% sure it's gutted) to see if maybe I'm mistaken and the void stickers are just bad adhesive... but I highly doubt it and with the shape this card is in I suspect my father-in-law just got ripped off and his daughter just lost out on a SSD... thanks

5 out of 5 eggsSlim! Quite a bit thinner than a 2.5"

Pros: Fast

Cons: Warranty Stickers are a joke
Very Slim, may need a spacer to get hdd to fit

Other Thoughts: This little dude is fast. I replaced my OCZ Vertex 3 120GB with this one for more space. Incredibly it was cheaper than the OCZ was without a rebate for double the space! Win7 performance on the OCZ was 7.5 (very good), but this guy rates a 7.7! It saves about 3-5 secs on boot. Wasn't expecting a performance bump, just needed the extra space (240Gb vs 120GB). It is 7mm thin. Most standard drives are 9.5mm thick. So keep this in mind. I installed this in a Dell M6500 mobile workstation, its sata connector is on the upper side when you install the drive from the bottom. In fact when I first installed it didn't detect the drive at all. The entire drive will fit below the connector and "feel" like it is inserted in the connector even though it is actually "resting" underneath it. I actually thought the drive was defective when I first installed it. After comparing the old and new drives I noticed the 2.5mm difference in thickness and put a spacer under the drive to bring it up into the connector. I believe this is why there are negative reviews on this drive. If you have a "slide" in drive mount in your laptop (pretty much all dell laptops) just make sure that the drive is pressed against the connector side when you slide it in. So far so good. If I can remember, I will post a later review on the reliability of this drive. Another user mentioned the warranty detection stickers were peeling off, yes, so were the stickers on mine. I stuck them down, and with a few min, they were off again. Hopefully this will not affect the warranty being honored.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat price for what you get

Pros: Just swapped it for a notebook HDD and that was simple enough (used acronis for the cloning part). No issues with the imaging and install. Boots fast. Moved my windows performance index rating for the HDD from 5.8 to 7.9.

Cons: I took off one egg for the reason that it only has 221gb available for a 240gb drive. Still a super value though.
