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'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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
* 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
* 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).
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.Read more ›
