For the money, I thought that this drive would give me a fantastic improvement on my regular hdd - and it did! However, after having the drive installed for only 1 month, trouble has started and reliability of drive has made me seriously think hard about ssd's.

Like others, I too am having problems with this drive in that during the last month it's been installed, twice it has randomly refused to be recognised in the BIOS. Everything installed OK, no issues at all for about a month then BSOD and on reboot drive didn't exist! I unplugged all cables to the drive and reseated and on reboot it went straight in. However, today on boot up it refuses to do anything and just sits at the HP POST screen (not had chance to investigate myself yet but suspect its the same issue as before!). How can the drive just 'get lost' ? ? Otherwise a nice speedy drive but reliability is poor :(

I'll preface this by saying I am a Level 2/3 systems admin by day, so I do know my way around Windows and PC hardware, broken and not.

I've had this drive since mid-August 2010 and, right off the bat, I'll say this drive is incredibly fast. I have been using 7200rpm hard drives since they existed. Always OK, but I read some good things about SSD technology and thought it was time I get on the wagon. As a boot partition, this disk replaced a 7200rpm 160GB WD drive. My boot time from the time Windows 7 Pro started loading (i.e. not counting BIOS/POST) to the login screen went from 29 seconds to 15 seconds. Blew me away. I reinstalled my games, copied all my profile data back (music/photos/documents,etc.) and got back to the way I was before the HD replacement. All was grand for a while.

In late September (~1.5 months after installing), I was opening the Pictures folder and found it wouldn't open. Got an error to tune of "Could not locate data." I freaked for a second, but I have a backup, so I rebooted. On restart, chkdsk kicks off automatically (I didn't schedule it) before I get to the login screen. It scans my disk, finds an enormous list of errors in the Pictures folder, repairs them and all was well again.

Then November 1. I was away for almost a week with everything shut down. Power my computer on and no Windows. BIOS sees the disk, but nothing loads. After POST, my screen goes black except for a random spattering of red, blue and green dots, about 2x2pixels each, spread all across my screen. It stayed there for hours.

I decided to get the PNY SSD for my desktop tower and was pleasantly surprised with it's performance. At $225 the PNY was cheaper than other 128GB drives. Back around the 7th of July, 2010 there weren't any reviews or people even talking about it which made it hard to know what to expect. However, because the specs looked really good, I figured why not give it a try. The first thing I did when I got my drive was to copy my Windows 7 HD partition to it using acronis. There are of course many other ways to do this, or a clean install is also good. Right off the bat I noticed that Windows 7 seemed to load in less than 1/2 the time! Originally my i7 based pc would boot from a western digital HD in about 22 seconds. But now it was like 10 to 11!! The very next thing I did was to run Crystal Disk Mark 2.2 and got a sequential read speed of 244 MB/sec! and write speed of 156 MB/sec which is way better than my HD. The 512K result got 186 for read and 147 for write. The 4K was 20.04 read and 23.46 write. It gets everything PNY was advertising. Also when I got the drive, the box has upgraded numbers that put the write speed at 150 and not 130 like Amazon describes. Sometimes it got up to 248MB/sec read and 167MB/sec write as numbers can change on subsequent tests. But all benches were in that rough range of figures. It's write speed is also quite a bit faster than Intel X-25 series drive as they only seem to get about 80 MB/sec on sequential writes.

Next I loaded some favorite applications and they came up much faster. Games, browsers, video editors, studio applications etc all loaded notably faster. What I'm finding out is that the PNY is actually one of the faster SSD's on the market in it's price range, or perhaps even $75-$100 more.

This is a great little SSD which PNY has seemingly opted to keep quiet about -- there're very few reviews on the web (at least as of this date) for this drive. This is my second SSD and so far I'm not disappointed. This particular drive replaced my MacBook Pro's fine 250GB, 5400rpm Seagate drive (which was moved to a USB enclosure for storage) and pretty much blew it out of the water.

Pros:
* Price/GB is great ($240/128GB = $1.875/GB)
* Performance vs. traditional HDs
* TRIM support
* Great replacement for a laptop
* Bargain desktop OS drive (e.g., install your OS and frequently accessed programs in here and get a big, fat 2TB drive for everything else)
* Fantastic speed difference vs. 5400rpm drives.
* Great speed difference vs. 7200rpm drives with less heat/power usage than 5400rpm drives.
* 3-year PNY warranty
* Drive is made in Taiwan

Cons:
* This is not the fastest SSD on the market, but then, it's so freaking fast it doesn't really matter unless you need some incredible IOPS.
* Price/GB is still rather high in comparison to standard HDDs.
* Low capacity (128GB when many laptops are equipped with at least 320GB drives).

Overall:
If you're looking to spruce up your laptop and are looking for a bargain, this drive would be it. From a *performance* standpoint, it's the equivalent of dropping a WD VelociRaptor in your laptop, without the heat and battery drainage. As long as your expectations are realistic (this will not boot Windows/OS-X in 2 seconds or load your apps before you click on them), you should be very happy with this SSD.

As for storage capacity, get a $15 USB enclosure and turn your old laptop HDD into a storage bin and you get the best of both worlds.
