1 out of 5 eggsBuyer Beware

Pros: They were decently price in the solid state market and had rave reviews.

Cons: I bought two of these for a Trixbox server build, they were in raid 1. It ran fine for about 5 months, then all hell broke lose. At the beginning of June, One of the drive in the raid failed. It locked to read only and it wouldn't even let me format it. I shipped it on the 6th of June and got it back on the 24th, very poor RMA turnaround time. Then I pop the new drive in and proceed to rebuild my Raid 1 and the drive that wasn't replaced has a bunch of bad sectors, so the raid 1 would not rebuild. Now I have to send the other drive in for a lengthy RMA.

Other Thoughts: I will be replacing these unreliable junk drives with WD or Seagate normal hard-drives on Monday. I should have just gone with normal hard-drives from the start. These drives have wasted 8 unbillable hours (I'm a consultant and I pushed these drives because they would be "more reliable" for their voice server, what a joke. I sure got an ear full on that one), and will waste 4 more when I do a clean install on new hard-drives and restore my 4 day old backup (thank goodness I got a good backup while this crud was happening). I'm not going to risk the "I got a bad batch" argument on these drives. They already have wasted too much of my life to get a second chance for a looong time.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and Solid

Pros: No moving parts, lightweight, low power draw, fast read/write for flash, Sata interface, standard 2.5" form factor, Nice looking enclosure. Works very well, I am happy with the purchase.

Cons: None so far, No stuttering here, has been working flawless.

Other Thoughts: Running in a boatPC. I am running XP embedded with enhanced write filter enabled. The drive is screaming fast with this configuration. To the guy running SSD's as a scratch volume - why oh why? SSD's are not designed or optimized for heavy write cycles like a scratch drive. Fast mechanical drive would make a much better scratch volume.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks like a charm

Pros: It is very quiet. This thing is great I bought it for a ASUS 1000HE for a replacement mainly for better battery life and faster boots. It does both quite well.

Cons: Small size, and price. Both of those will be obsolete within 2 years though.

Other Thoughts: I did not buy this to test it and see what kind of speeds I could get out of it. I only use it because it is cold, and it saves my battery life.

2 out of 5 eggsAn unexpected error occurred (error code -50)

Pros: Fast. Cheap for an SSD. (slightly faster than the PQI MLC SSD's with a similar pricetag). Might work fine in a different setup than mine...

Cons: When connected to an Areca card on a Mac Pro, they work for an hour or two, then they cause an error -- "An unexpected error occurred (error code -50)" and absolutely won't read, write or unmount. I must restart the computer or delete and re-create the pass-through drive from the RAID control panel in order to access the drives again. Not something I plan to deal with multiple times daily...
Also, when the drives stop working any programs using the drives will likely crash. Just bad news all the way around.

Other Thoughts: I purchased two of these to use as a scratch disk in RAID0. I've got them hooked up to an Areca 1261 raid card on a Mac Pro. No matter how I connect these drives using the Areca card they always produce the same error. I've tried RAID0, setting them to two individual Pass-Through drives, and using Disk Utility to software RAID them. Always produces the same error code. I purchased 3 very similar PQI SSDs and have had absolutely no problems with them when connected to the Areca card. I think it might have something to do with the RAID controller "spinning up" the drives? I don't know. The PQI drives work fine so I'll just RMA these Supertalent drives while I still can.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Used it in a carPC, between this and an upgrade from a VIA CN1000 to the new intel D945GCLF2 it runs a lot faster now.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Wish I could rationalize spending the money for a larger one

4 out of 5 eggsinteresting

Pros: ~sleek looking
~light weight
~saves power = more battery time with laptop
~solid shock resistant

Cons: ~limited write/erase life (but is much better than it was a year ago and this is true of all hard drives)
~cost still pricey ($/Gig)

Other Thoughts: i purchased this drive for my dell laptop, it works quite well. running ubuntu boot times are pretty fast to begin with, when the ssd is used it only shaved 3 or 5 seconds off of the boot time.
~on a side note, i suspect my laptop is to blame but the drive seems to get kinda hot after several hours of use....

5 out of 5 eggsWhere are the screws?

Pros: I bought this drive for a boot drive between my Linux and Windows intalls and also as a swap drive for both. Works well for that. Reads are fast and write time is good. No idea how it would work for a os drive.

Cons: The screws used to mount this drive are smaller diameter then normal hard drives screws and they also need to be a little shorter. This is a retail box and the screws should be incuded. Almost removed an egg for this, but the drive works so well for my use I couldn't do it.

Other Thoughts: I installed this in a regular desktop system as I needed a boot drive and was limited on space. I put it in an empty floppy drive bay. The drive never gets hot in there and is quite as a mouse.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat in RAID

Pros: Bought four of these when they were only 79 bucks each. Put in RAID0 they achieve 500MB/s and 300MB/s read/write speeds. These drives achieve their quoted speeds for file sizes of approximately 16kB and up.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: If you used these with an Intel southbridge like I did make sure you get the driver from the Intel site. The driver on the ASUS site for my board was too out of date and I couldn't get the OS to install on these drives. Grabbed the new driver and it was smooth sailing.

When testing these drives use the program "ATTO".

4 out of 5 eggsBetter Drive for portable systems

Pros: This drive is much faster than the drive that came with my EeePC (Seagate 160GB, 5400RPM). Battery life has increased about 40 minutes when in Power-Saving mode - with no performance decrease. XP Pro SP2 checked the disk for errors and did a full format in less than a minute (format was about 5 seconds).

Cons: PartitionMagic did not copy the partition correctly and HD Clone did not even recognize the drive, hence the loss of one egg. Had to reinstall all software - fortunately I had activations left. 1/4 the capacity I am used to and now am left with just podcasts, which is just fine.

Other Thoughts: Other reviewers have stated they have used TrueImage to copy from a magnetic drive to an SSD. When I have the $ I'll get it. Could have gotten it instead of HD Clone but didn't know of the program until after...

3 out of 5 eggsPretty Quick *

Pros: Quick.. If you do one task at a time. Quiet, low heat, light as a feather.

Cons: Slow if you try to write two things or more at once. Write speed on my Raptor X are a lite better with milti tasking. As a secondary drive for launching games, this is superb.

Other Thoughts: SHoudl come with a 3.5 mounting bracket.
