PNY Optima SSD7SC480GOPT-RB 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs Not up to advertised performance 07/14/2014

This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC480GOPT-RB 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: - It is a SSD after all. Will out perform any mechanical.
- I got it for very cheap. $145 after $20 rebate.

Cons: Crystaldiskmark result show far below advertised performance. I guess "up to" 60,000 IOPS means you have to be lucky? Anyway, following is the results that i had.

Seq Read/Write: 511.8/343.8 MB/s
512K Read/Write: 452.4/342.9 MB/s
4K Read/Write: 26.96/19.33 MB/s
4K QD32 Read/Write: 222.8/97.38 MB/s

97.38 MB/s on 4K QD32 indicate about 24000 IOPS

Other Thoughts: Testing environment
i5 2500K - Biostar z68a+ MB

Thermaltake Frio Overclocking-Ready Intel Core i7 (6-core ready) & i5 Compatible Five 8mm Heatpipes Dual 120mm Fans Intel & AMD Universal CPU Cooler CLP0564 - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The fan can be cranked up to go really fast. Cools ok even with one fan (see cons and comments)

Cons: 1. Fan speed knob can only be accessed if you open up the case. So it is adjustable only if you are willing to pop the hood every time you do it.
2. Loud. By loud it sounds like a f-21 passing by when you put it at its max.
3. Was missing parts (2nd fan and connector).
4. Been a month since RMA and no response from support what so ever

Other Thoughts: Even with one fan it has fairly good cooling. However, customer support fails at responding. Contacted them 3 times, nothing but the automated response for RMA request
