Fast reliable SSD. The load time is very very fast,(I'm going from a 7200 HDD) installed windows and all the driver updates for my components in less than an hour. Computer turns on and is ready to use in less than 30 seconds now. The windows animation right before the
log in screen doesn't even have a chance to finish ! Installation is very straight forward
Everything installed without a hitch, quality of build is very well built.

This drive worked great for the first day that I used it. However, over the next couple of days, the drive became corrupted multiple times. I'm just going to assume its a somewhat "DOA" and not write off this brand completely. I will update in the future if I decide to replace my current drive with the same model.

First off, this drive is wholly incompatible with Marvell SE9130 controllers. After hours of reading/surfing, this appears to be a problem with any of the first generation Marvell controllers 91xx and most SSDs. Those controllers, however, work perfectly fine with my old SATA2 Intel and OCZ SSDs. I have been using SSDs for many, many years. So, on with my review. I used this on a Windows 7 64-bit machine Core i7 using the motherboard's Intel SATA6 ports in AHCI, all usual SSD optimizations done.

Out-of-the-box, this drive did not even meet the manufacturer's specs. It is rated for 540 MB/s read and 340 MB/s write (sequential). I smiled when I saw 550 MB/s reads, but then frowned once I saw it could barely muster 255 MB/s write. That's down almost 100 MB/s from spec. OK, for all you that are new to SSDs, with all the current crop of SSDs, the manufacturer's performance specs are a 1-time deal when the drive is brand new and NOTHING has ever been written to the drive. Once it has, the drive will drop down to a significantly slower performance level. In essence, it is truly "up to" the published specs.

So, I proceeded to put about 60GB of files onto this drive. 128 GB is not very big, but my typical OS, applications, and some pics, music, and what-not is about that big, leaving about 1/2 left. SSDs really do not like to be run full due to wear leveling algorithms and the drive itself needing free space to rewrite and combine small files into its internally large blocks.

Well, I was shocked to see the speeds plummet to only 142 MB/s read and 136 MB/s write. Actually, I was impressed with what seemed like good write speeds as I looked for and grabbed some directories of files to copy. But, seriously, this is only after maybe 10 or 20 minutes of use!

Been using this 2 years now

GOOD: Been running a pair of these in RAID 0 since day 1.
Fast, works flawlessly.
Consistent read and write, period.

BAD: I want to update the firmware, but risk of losing everything on the drives.

OVERALL:This product is not the lowest $/GB, but its great value for the performance and reliability.
