Definitely solid for storage. 5/28/2020 5:19:00 PM

Pros: Great overall experience with this drive. I get 561 MB/s sequential read & 522 MB/s write speeds across the board for all 3 of these that I own. Not shabby at all.

Cons: None, so far.

Overall Review: I own 3 of these drives now and can honestly say that they are a solid choice for storage. I have yet to use one as a boot drive. I prefer M.2 NVMe for boot duties. I will be purchasing a couple more in the near future for upcoming Christmas builds for my Grandson & Mother-In-Law. I will use those T-Force Vulcan drives for booting both new systems and report my findings. I have been partial to Samsung's SSD drives for quite a while but Team Group is starting to win me over!

Good drive...horrible documentation 5/28/2020 8:38:04 AM

Pros: Fast and easy to install, inexpensive SSD.

Cons: Zero instructions and software. There are no instructions in the box or online for installing this drive. As far as I can tell, the SSD Monitor software that's mentioned in the description of this product doesn't exist. I searched everywhere online and came up with zilch.
Ended up using Macrium to clone my old drive to this one.

Overall Review: I would only buy this product if you were somewhat experienced already installing hardware due to lack of instructions and software.

Great boot drive 5/22/2020 7:19:12 AM

Pros: Very fast SSD for a very competitive price. It's definitely faster than most cheap and even middleclass SSDs

Cons: Not that I can think of. As long as it does have reliability issues.

Overall Review: If I'm looking for more performance I would go with nvme. This is one of the best sata ssd I've used.

Excellent SSD - Performance and Style! 5/11/2020 10:32:34 AM

Pros: I needed a drive to replace an old WD Black 1TB HDD that was primarily used for games and was starting to show signs of dying. The WD Black has served me well, and I also have an SSHD being used for games, but I wanted SSD performance for my most played titles. So I started looking around.

After a lot of research, the price, and my good experiences using Team Group RAM a lot over the past several years, finally ended up leading me to this 1TB Vulcan SSD. I could not be more pleased with my purchase. The drives performance is spot on, as expected and advertised. It looks great, no ugly sticker to remove or hiding the drive behind my tray. I am seriously considering a second Vulcan 1TB drive to replace my other SSD also being used for games, it's a few years old now and only 480GB.

If you're in the market for an inexpensive, quality, 1TB SSD, then this Vulcan drive should be at the top of your list!

Great job Team, keep it up!

Cons: None at the time of this review.

My 2nd T-Force Vulcan - Excellent SSD! 5/11/2020 10:31:23 AM

Pros: I recently needed to replace an old WD Black 1TB HDD "games drive" that was starting to fail, finally settling on the 1TB T-Force Vulcan SSD, and so far it's been working like a champ!

Now I was looking for a new SSD to replace the Seagate 600 Series 240GB I have been using as my OS/Boot drive since June of 2013. While the Seagate drive was still working, it's been running non-stop for almost 7 years, and some anomalies in my system point to the drive as a possible source. So I figured now is a good time to replace it.

It decided to try the 250GB version of the T-Force Vulcan since I am very happy with it's 1TB bigger brother, and my positive experiences using Team Group RAM.

After cloning Windows 10 over to the drive using Macrium Reflect - Free Edition (A simple powerful cloning software, a good alternative to Clonezilla, I have used and like both.), it's been working wonderfully!

Again, performance is spot on, and I still love the drives aesthetic!

Maybe it's time to replace the Mushkin 480GB SSD I also use for games ... upgrade to a 2nd 1TB Vulcan ... I have had it running about 5 years. Still working fine, but hey, I could always use more space!

Highly recommended!

Cons: None at the time of this review.
