Very plain looking but great performing SSD.
Jaime Moreno
I now have a drive that is quiet, doesn't spin, isn't susceptible to damage from drops, is super fast, and saves on my battery life.
Noname
The Toshiba Q Series kept showing as a good drive so I decided on the Toshiba 128GB Q Series Pro.

Size Name: 256GB Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The power consumption on the Toshiba Q series solid state hard drive is one of the lowest on the market. I was able to stretch 2 hours of battery life to 4 hours after installing this drive. The fans on my laptop are now pumping out exhaust that is 5 degrees cooler, which helps extend the life of every component.

The NTI Echo migration software made a perfect transfer of all 180 GB of my files in 1.25 hours on a USB 2.0 cable, and the experience was seamless. After formatting, the rated 256 GB capacity became 223 GB. You will need a USB to SATA cable/adapter if you have a single SATA connection, or a SATA to SATA cable for computers with multiple SATA connections.

The speed is amazing. I knew I would not be able to take advantage of the SATA 6 GB/S because of my older laptop with SATA 3GB/S interface, but boot to login screen on Windows 7 64bit improved to from 45 seconds to 10 seconds, and 30 seconds instead of 2 minutes for all background programs to load after log in.

The warranty on this Toshiba is 3 years, and not limited to a maximum number read/write cycles. Think of it as a 3 year auto warranty with no mileage limits. It is better than most comparable drives on the market, but not as good as the 5 year Intel warranty.

With the Toshiba, you can buy a budget laptop, use it for a year or two, and then upgrade to an SSD to stretch out the life cycle for at least three more years. It is the best investment you can make for any computer and I highly recommend it if you can get it at a similar price to the Samsung 840 series. Make sure to back up your new drive regularly with an external USB hard drive. Use File Shredder on your old drive to ensure that all data is completely removed before you sell/recycle/give it away.

Size Name: 256GB Verified Purchase
This was a great price on Amazon and a very fast SSD with about the best warranty around. Installation was straightforward, you can download a Toshiba only version of NTI Echo 3 to migrate data. You will need an adapter cable to go from SATA to USB or E-SATA port on you computer. NTI Echo is really simple, plug in the drive, start the program and then walk away for around an hour....bingo its done! Physically swap the drives and you are off to the races.

If you have not installed a SSD in a computer you will be pleasantly surprised at the performance difference. Take a bit of time post install to tweek the system to optimize both performance and potential life span of the SSD. Lots of information if you search for "SSD Optimization". If you are not into geeking out your hard drive then just install it and go...still will be way better than the old drive.

Power consumption is also down a good bit with much better battery life but the biggest boost is in application execution (zero wait time read / write) as well as the ability to run programs that demand a lot of disk use (swapfiles and data movement) much more efficiently.

Definitely a great upgrade and worth the $s.

Size Name: 256GB Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I used the Toshiba 256GB Q Series Pro PC Internal Solid State Drive as a replacement drive in my 4 year old laptop computer. The drive it replaced was a 160GB 5400 RPM mechanical drive. The difference in performance was beyond anything I expected.

The drive comes only with a 2mm spacer, and no other hardware. If you need cloning software, a download link for NTI Echo is provided. You're also going to need a cable or external SATA enclosure to connect the drive to your computer in order to clone it. I used an inexpensive USB external SATA enclosure I got on eBay for under $20. The NTI Echo software did a good job copying everything, and it took a little over 30 minutes to complete the job. Once completed, it only took me 5 minutes to remove my old disk drive, and replace it with the new SSD drive. After it was installed and I booted up for the first time, I was shocked at the difference in performance. My system was a few years old and used to take 60-90 seconds to boot and load Windows 7. With the new SSD drive running the identical cloned configuration, my system booted and loaded Windows 7 in under 15 seconds. My old laptop is running like a fast, brand new system. Applications open and close instantly. My Windows Experience Index score for disk drives went from 5.4 to 7.7. My battery life also appears to be slightly increased too.

I couldn't be happier with my Toshiba 256GB Q Series Pro PC Internal Solid State Drive. It breathed new life into an old system. I'm so impressed I'm going to make sure all my future systems have SSD's installed.

So far so good... installation and compatibility is half the battle but becoming less so.

The real test is failure over time, but I had a Sandisk 128GB SSD that I use for system disk and select programs and data and it was getting full. I just happened to see the Toshiba and performance was high and it was cheap so I thought I would give it a shot.

I cloned my existing drive with Clonzilla, rebooted with it as system drive and all was well. It took about 30 min to clone and be up and running.

My Windows Experience for disk drive went from 7.7 to 7.9. Really doesn't matter, but this disk was slightly faster than the sandisk extreme.

I was worried about it being too thin for my hard drive slots which have the interface cables and power built in, but it fit perfectly in the tray and slid right in to the connectors.
