Still running after 4 years but at a choked speed. 12/20/2018 9:15:29 PM

Pros: I am surprised it still runs everyday after 4 years with TBW of 61 (61+ TB written through it). But now it is getting slow. If I have used it less than 50% space utilization, it could have gone farther (but I learnt my lesson to not hoard up space with unnecessary idled space used.
So, yeah it still runs after 4 years of everyday used (avg. 10hr at least)

Cons: Not really a con, but I wish it has longer lifetime.

Overall Review: I tried to contact PNY when I saw some smart warning about relocated event of "2", but no response received. But I myself is confused if ssd's relocated sectors? But, I still deserve some response right?

Died Just after 3 years 12/16/2017 9:47:35 PM

Pros: Awesome when it worked

Cons: Short Life Expectancy. I have 2TB WD HDD that is around 8 years old and has never missed a beat in the same system as this SSD was in.

Overall Review: Probably not going to by PNY Drives ever again. I'll stick to the brand names that have always proven to last. WD and Seagate.

failed after 3 years 10/21/2017 5:21:09 PM

Pros: it's fast and roomy; buying from NewEgg was helpful

Cons: my entire system went on the fritz because this hard drive crashed

Overall Review: I'm not sure another SSD would die after being basically on all the time for 3 years but this one did so I'll look for another brand next time

Drive fails. Deceptive warranty policy 7/7/2017 7:47:35 AM

Pros: None

Cons: The drive fail nearly at the end of the 3 yr mark (still have 1~2 months warranty left). Called to get a RMA and they claimed the warranty expired as it's only 1 year for those who haven't registered with them, despite the newegg site says 3 years, without mentioning any registration requirements. That's what I saw when I bought it, and it's still the case on newegg's product listing as of 7/5/2017.

Don't bother buying anything PNY. They fail before warranty is up and try to take unfair advantage of you with fine prints and special rules made solely for the purpose of entrapment. If you can spend $20 more, just buy it from a more reputable brand. It's SSD storage, so I'd expect it to be more reliable than mechanical drives on normal use: turns out my HGST hard drives outlived it. It's the reliability that scares me. The bad customer service and deceptive marketing and abusive policies that leads me to share the experience.

Overall Review: It has gotten so bitter that I don't even want money back if you offered. Won't buy any of your product (RAM, SSD, whatever) at any price after this experience. It's your corporate character that's repulsive. I'm a firm advocate against PNY products now. Die. PNY. Just die.

Write speed dropped to less than 2 MB/s 5/24/2017 12:49:16 PM

Pros: -- It was in a good price to performance space back in 2014. But now is failing after light use and being less than 50% full.

Cons: -- The write speed has gone down to less than 2 MB/s in synthetic and real world usage. The latency on writes takes anywhere from 2000 ms - 15,000 ms and is completely unusable.
-- Like others, because I didn't fill out a registration card, I was denied warranty service. This is very frustrating because as you can see on the warranty tab it clearly says 3 years. Let's be real here, no one reads all the TOS/EULA's and fine print when you're dealing with all the hardware and software it takes to turn on one PC.

Overall Review: -- I would not recommend this product or any PNY product to others ever.
