This review is from: PNY XLR8 SSD9SC240GMDA-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: The PNY XLR8 240GB SSD comes in at a great performance/price point.
It is a solid and reliable performer, and PNY adds on a 3 YR warranty, unlike brand O*Z and others.
Cons: Not really a con, unless you require advanced data encryption on your storage devices. This unit uses the Sandforce 22xx series (2281) controller and does not support AES-256 encryption. AES-128 encryption works perfectly fine as does the drive's standard, un-encrypted operation mode. I think this is probably the reason for the stellar price point as well.
Other Thoughts: This is a no-brainer for a laptop or desktop not requiring the highest AES encryption, and it has very good performance (not the best, but decent read/write speeds). You'll need to spend another $40 or $50 to correct that on a different SSD, if it is worth that much to you. Otherwise, a super value and solid performer.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price. (a come-on, of course)
Cons: Failed within a week. OCz hinted they would refund/replace, but its not worth the tap dancing and second guessing I would have to do to even try it.
Cons: Failed just after 2 months. Poor Quality. Stay away ..READ FULL REVIEW
