Reliable so far

Ten of then running mining software on Windows 10 24/7 since Jan, 2018. No failure so far. No spinning part(s). Slim and small.

4/19/2019 - Good SSD for mining. It has been 24/7 for 15 months and not a single failure.

None so far.

Will update if anything changes.

Slow drive

Cheap

Very slow compared to other drives especially the write speeds. software utility doesn't work, no firmware updates

As the prices are coming down I would pass on this one. There are other drives in this price range that are faster and the manufacturers keep the firmware updated

I should have listened to the other negative reviews

none

Had this drive installed less than two months and my PC starts getting random MEMORY_MANAGEMENT BSOD. Went thru a lot of troubleshooting to determine what caused it, but put my old 64gb ssd back in and the problem went away. Tried reformatting the drive and putting it back in and the problem came back.

I finally realized that what seemed to me like random BSOD was caused by attempts to write to this drive during routine usage, for example, temp internet files for web browsing. I'll be looking into a way to get warranty support as this thing supposedly is covered for 2 years.

Spend another $5 and get a drive from a different brand.

I bought two. One lasted two weeks. The other still works.

Boots windows quickly.

Died within two weeks of installation.

I'm very disappointed. I bought two, Installed Windows 10 on one, and it died after two weeks. I've moved it to several computers, and no computer will even boot with it connected. I've now installed Windows 10 on the other. It works great, and has been running for three weeks. I'm worried that it too will fail, so I'll replace it as soon as I can.

Another SSD for my little Media Server

Great price (on sale) and there was no issue with form-factor (screw holes, size, etc.). Media Server immediately detected it. No problems so far but I only have had it a day.

No mounting screws. I mean... I know it's cheap, but really?

Decent drive, until it fails

Consistently Fast

Drive failed in less than six months

Just get something more reliable, don't bother with this garbage.

Edit: Replacement drive failed as well

it bring new life on Mac mini late 2012

I think I got lucky that I found this product. I am about to buy Samsung EVO 860 in best buy for it was on sale for $82 but decided to look for something else in Newegg. It took me a couple of days to decide to buy it because of mix review. I noticed that those people that gave five star on this product sound like they are knowledgeable. So I decided to buy it and I am glad I did. The Mac mini use to boot several minutes with the original HDD but with this it boot up in about 20 second.
