It's an SSD. 05/30/2014
This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC240GOPT-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Everything arrived as expected. Did a reinstall of Win7Pro 64-bit - previously ran it from a 7200RPM 32mb cache HDD - and can see immediate improvements when multitasking (i.e., opening "too many" web browser tabs while doing other things). The OS reinstall was the least painful ever once I got it started, since the usual 3-hour process took about 10 minutes including restarts.
Does not come with a 3.5" adapter bracket - but then again, it doesn't claim to include one.
Bought heavily on sale, with a rebate. Unlike another reviewer who stated he got his unsealed with no UPC, mine came in a black box surrounded by product-related cardstock (with a UPC) and sealed in shrink wrap.
I have no idea how fast mine is technically, because I don't feel the need to run benchmarks. But, as someone who's using it for gaming & 'productivity', I don't see how a faster SSD could improve performance more than it already has. Glad I upgraded, and money well spent!
