Top Customer Reviews
(Other drives I considered getting were the Kingston HyperX, Crucial M4, and Corsair Performance GT SSDs, but according to benchmarks these drives were on a lower tier than the Chronos Deluxe. The Patriot Wildfire is comparable, but the price wasn't at the time of my purchase.)
The packaging is extremely simple. SSD, enclosure, and screws in a small baggie all tightly packed in a simple cardboard case. Very minimalistic and very efficient.
The installation procedure was standard. I used Carbon Copy Cloner with an external enclosure to clone my HDD contents on my new SSD. Swapped the two drives and booted up!
I was blown away by the immediate performance boost. Prior to installing this SSD, it took approximately 90 seconds from cold start to being able to launch a program. After installing, the time was shaved to 20 seconds.
A key reason why I considered purchasing an SSD was to improve my gaming experience, and it did not disappoint. Starcraft II loads extremely quickly (less than five seconds), navigation is very snappy, and best of all I'm finally able to use Spotify while playing a game without my computer lagging or hearing a mechanical disk drive spin like crazy.
I am very, very pleased with my purchase and would highly recommend this product to those looking for a high quality SSD.
Highly recommend to anyone in the market for a solid SSD. Shopped around for quite awhile waiting for the prices to come down. Missed a sale on the OCZ 120gb Vertex 3 and now I'm glad I did.
Believe the hype, the performance increase is incredible.
