Corsair Force LS Series CSSD-F120GBLS 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very inexpensive SSD sub-$60 cost. Flawless install on a Win7 and Vista Bus laptops. Read/Writes nicely on an STARTECH SSD cloner tray. Nice and very well protected packing. If I get my $20 rebate my net cost is about $40.

Cons: This Corsair SSD is my 4th branded OEM SSD drive and by far the slowest. Windows Performance Index is 5.9, same index of a traditional 7200-HDD. Passmark Overall Disk mark is only 1066. When compared with my older SSDs this 1066 is about 1/3 the disk mark of the others. Performance-wise, I do not consider this SSD to be a reasonable upgrade from a traditional 7200rpm SATA HDD. I own an INTEL, SAMSUNG, PNY(2) and CRUCIAL SSDs.

Other Thoughts: Thin, ideal for ultra-books. Practically all plastic body and no spacer or screws provided. Like my other SSDs, runs very hot and pushes the fan max thermal setting to the limit. Because of it's low cost it can be a nice entry-level "kick-the-tires" SSD just to see if my older laptops can handle SSD technology. NewEgg is my primary source for techie gadgets and this drive was purchased from there.

Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/120G 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Solid Performance At A Great Price 06/22/2014

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Tried on two laptops and success each time. Easy fit into two different laptops running Windows 7 Pro/64bit. Each time the Windows HD performance factor went from 59 to 79. On a practical sense, the OS loads so quickly that I'm up and running in just seconds. I completed my testing by moving large volumes of video files (80GB) using another laptop with an equivalent PNY SSD. The file transfer rate was very impressive.

Cons: Runs very hot...really hot. My laser point thermometer has a sustained reading of 120deg. But this seems to be the normal operating temp of SSDs, My other laptop with a PNY reads the same number. As a consequence, the laptop fan runs almost all the time. I've tweaked the power mgmt in the BIOS but the reads stayed the same.

Other Thoughts: I just need to get use to the heat and fan running. But as prices of SSDs drop I plan to upgrade to SSDs the remaining family laptops.

Seagate Momentus XT ST95005620AS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Somewhat leery about buying a refurb drive because I've been burnt before. So far, not on this one. I bought this at Newegg when there was add'l discount and free-shipping. Installed it on a Dell Latitude E4300 and loaded Windows 8.1 64-bit. I was able to configure AHCI on setup and Windows recognized it as a new drive. The old drive was an older SATA 7200 rpm and configured as IDE. The speed gained and overall performance was impressive. And with 500GB the increased capacity came in handy to store most of my multimedia files. It runs quieter cooler than the older drive. The shipping was great and the packaging is better than the OEM retail version.

Cons: It's a refurb product and makes me uneasy about it. But more of a peace of mind factor that anything else.

Other Thoughts: When I compare this SSHD rated at 7200 rpm with my other SSHD rated at 5400 rpm I could not detect any difference. Just my observation and not a scientific or lab-based comparison.
