Pros: NONE, stay away from all PNY products

Cons: After 2 months I noticed a slow down on my HP Z800 workstation. I purchased a Samsung 850 Pro just in case this died, migrated my data and the performance on the Samsung is amazing. Never had issues with Samsung or Intel, tried the cheaper bottom of the barrel products from a vendor like PNY and they make junk. Poor tech support, no firmware updates and no tools with this drive. No migration tools either.

Other Thoughts: I would never recommend any PNY SSD's to anyone, except people I do not like. LOL I would not purchase it again, I would buy a Samsung or Intel. I would change my product review if they replace my product with one that works. LOL

1 out of 5 eggs two lockups on my Macbook Pro and one on my HP Z800 Workstation 09/19/2014

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

Pros: cheap

Cons: No firmware update on web site. OS hang on Mac OS X 10.9 and disk IO stopped on Windows 7 with a HP Z800 workstation. I am using a third party Marvell PCIe controller that is a SATA 3 to get the most speed. No supplied software to migrate your OS from the mechanical to the SSD. Not SSD Tool box like Intel and Samsun have.

Other Thoughts: Skip this and buy a more expensive SSD that is $100 more, i.e. Samsung or Intel. If I could give it a 1/2 egg or No egg at all that would be a better rating than 1 egg.

Pros: A very cool little machine to run VMware for your router or firewall at home. Low power and MUCH better than the Intel ATOM CPU's for VMware.

Cons: The NIC driver is not recognised if you install ESXi 5.5, you have to install 5.1 and I have been told upgrade to 5.5. USB pass thru does not work, wish it did as I would need some devices to USB pass thru a NIC for firewalling and USB drives for FreeNAS shared storage.
