worked right out of the box, used on 3 different systems,
Pros: Installed on an IMAC first, cloned over the old drive and booted right up with no issues, system ran a lot faster. Installed 2 more in windows based desktops, cloned over and both systems ran much faster also, I saw a huge improvement with speed. Would recommend for a way to speed up your systems. I used AOMEI free cloning software for 2 clones and Acronis True Image to copy the other. Had some trouble cloning with EASUS free version...
Cons: Would be nice if they offered a cloning software out of the box like some other SSD companies do...
Overall Review: Dont know why some people had issues with the install, maybe drives arrived defective.. Especially the person who received the warped one...
Silicon SSD drive, a good upgrade
Pros: I've installed over 10 of these drives and they will speed up you older system significantly. Worth the small investment to keep an older system running well for a few more years. Would recommend these drives, they are a reasonable price.
Cons: If installing in a desktop, you will need to add a mounting bracket to fit it into a 3 1/2" bay, unless you have a 2 1/2" bay available. Sometimes cloning can be a pain, especially with windows 10 and the newer UEFI bios. Sometimes you need to rebuild the boot sector and other times windows will just fix it for you on the first boot. You can find ways to do this on youtube to help with the cloning.
Overall Review: Great upgrade for the price, I would purchase again and have. Possible improvement would be an easy cloning software that work all the time..
So far Great
I've ordered 2 refirb IBM lenovo laptops. Both showed up quickly, in good shape and running fine. I ordered 3 more today to sell to my customers. I run a computer repair company, and this is a great deal. I have 2 sold already and sure the third will go quickly. Might have to get some more... Hope they stay in stock. Great job, thanks!
