PNY Optima SSD7SC240GOPT-RB 2.5

5 out of 5 eggs Mine's working fine after 8 months 03/04/2015

This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC240GOPT-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Synchronous-Mode Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I can only review my own experience, and I've had nothing bad to say about this drive. Probably not the fastest SSD out there, but the space is much better than my old 128GB one, speed seems just as fast, and the price was right. I have been rigorous in backing up this PC to both an external and internal HD almost daily. I feel that's a prudent precaution when using ANY SSD drive.

Cons: Cons? Only that other reviewers have not had my experience so it may be a luck-of-the-draw thing. But no cons here.

Other Thoughts: Granted, I mostly play games on this PC so I don't really worry about losing data - and any important data I back up routinely. But what can I say? Mine has worked fine for 8 months with not a hiccup.

Pros: Inexpensive and works. Heat not a problem here. I've so far had to reset it once (could have been my router though - didn't bother to isolate it as I just reset them both.) Using comcast and getting tested speeds of 30Mbps and only paying for 25Mbps (Comcast/Xfinity). Quite happy with results - night and day between this and the AT&T DSL (3Mbps on a good day and common outages). Of course, that's more to do with service than the modem - but I'm quite happy with this!

Cons: Nothing I can think of. I did need to tweak my router a bit when I found my Wifi wasn't showing the speeds my wired connection was - but that's not due to the modem. Never mattered before, I couldn't get anywhere near the speed to notice the problem!

Pros: Not really a lot to say - works, has had no problems since I bought it about a month ago. At least as fast as the 90 GB I was replacing (and put in my laptop). Nice to have the room to not have to worry about where I install programs. Still have my 2 TB drive for media. Didn't run any official speed test, but Win 7 still shows the same rating as my prev. one. I suspect the difference between "super fast" $150+ drives and this wouldn't be detectable by me. And if rebate comes through, < $100 makes hard to beat.

Cons: Rebates. Normally I hate them because who's going to keep track of them for 2 months to see if they come in? But when the $ w/o rebate is still good, it becomes less of a pain if they don't. Only real downside is PNY has apparently a newer version for nearly the same price. No idea what the difference is - but I'm happy with this.

Other Thoughts: If I were to buy now, I'd go for the XLR8 I expect. About $10 more isn't a lot to pay for an updated one - though I've no idea what the difference is. But for the price of lunch, I guess I'd prefer to have the latest and greatest.
