Popped it into my machine, installed Windows 7, did all my updates, and ran some benchmarks. Sequential Read speed is about 490MB and Write was 290 or so. I'm a little disappointed in the write speeds as it's rated over 500 and it performs worse than the Samsung 830 that I have in my laptop. The Samsung 830 is rated lower for the speeds yet performs better in the actual benchmarks Overall though, I don't think I'll notice the difference and am happy with it. Time will tell if that stays the same.
I also got the 2 extra years of warranty for a total of 5 upon registration. I'm giving it 4/5 as the write speeds are well off what the maximum claim is.
While I didn't use the fastest processor (G3420 Intel and 1150 MB) his new computer is blazing fast thanks to this drive. Boot from cold start 22 sec and from sleep 3 sec. under Windows 8.1. I ran no benchmarks other than Windows performance index which maxed out for this drive at 7.9 (it doesn't go higher). To get the most out of the drive make sure it is using a SATA 3 (600gb sec) connection. While it is backward compatible to SATA 2 it will hamper performance.
This computer wasn't designed as a gaming machine but a machine for photo editing which it does quite well. Windows 8.1 resides on the SSD and all programs and data are stored on the 500gb drive. This allows the OS to use the remaining space on the SSD as a very fast virtual ram drive (windows sets this up automatically). Photoshop also uses this as extra memory as needed. In making another computer I probably get the larger 250gb model as it gives more room for expansion as some programs will not install in any other drive but the C drive (I-Tunes for example) but the data can still go on the D drive for all programs. Remember this too as when an SSD drive fails it does so catastrophically with no retrieval possible. So keep your data backed up.

I successfully replaced my 1TB HDD with this 120gb SSD into my Lenovo ideapad y410p thus making the SSD as my main OS while the 1 TB HDD as a storage drive (downloads, music, pictures, videos, movies, etc...).
It was easy to install this SSD. However, I also needed to purchase a y410p HDD ultrabay caddy to use my 1 TB HDD which also replaced my rarely used ultrabay DVD drive.
At that instant, I turned on my laptop and changed my BIOS settings to legacy and the booting order of my hard drives. Then I reformatted my laptop and installed fresh Windows 8.1 x64 onto my SSD drive. The installation, booting, and restarting went by blazingly fast. I did not have to wait like I used to while I was running Windows on the HDD.
My first SSD was a success. With all programs and OS installed onto my main SSD, I have 77 gb of free space and an additional 1 TB of HDD of storage.
REGRETS: Not getting a bigger capacity and gone with a Samsung EVO
So frankly I can't trust a drive that died so fast, I also purchased two other drives one was a M500 and Munchksin SSD around the same time for my other machines they are all running great.
I'm disappointed with this drive and I have lost hope in having it as the main drive on any of my machines. Let's see how the warranty process is I will update when I go through that.
Although boot time is definitely improved, I also expected more of an gain. Looking into it, the XLR8 PRO is rated for "gaming" and offers "Fast OS Boot". I almost wish I paid extra for the PRO, but I'm definitely not complaining - for my first SSD, I couldn't be happier. I rarely reboot anyways and it's still much quicker - especially after loading Windows. It's usable immediately. Before, Steam (and other programs) would just make my system crawl at startup.
I upgraded from a WD1002FAEX 1TB. This drive was good, but was definitely the bottleneck in my machine. I installed Windows (and a handful of games) on the SSD and made my 1TB my storage drive. Spinning disks just cannot compare! There's no reason for anyone to not have an SSD by now, they can turn a crap laptop into a computer worth using again - Hands down the best upgrade for any machine IMO.
There was a pricing error when I ordered this drive. Instead of cancelling my order, the seller fought for a month on my behalf and I was able to receive my drive at original purchase price. They didn't have to do this and yet they did, thank you. You get 5 stars for immediate and thorough communication. Once shipped, it took 2 days. Amazing.
I rate the SSD 4/5 when considering storage space, performance and price - You can't go wrong.Read more ›
