5 out of 5 eggsIts been a solid drive.

This review is from: PNY XLR8 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD9SC120GMDF-RB

Pros: I cant believe I haven't written a review for this drive. Put it in a friends pc for a college student and had to call for an update. Its still going strong. If I remember correctly this drive was very impressive booting compared to some ssds ive bought.

Cons: none still going strong.

1 out of 5 eggsGood while it lasted.

This review is from: PNY XLR8 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD9SC120GMDF-RB

Pros: While it worked, I experienced the following:
- Amazing boot speed

Cons:
- Died 6 months after purchase... it didn't die slowly, either. It was running perfect one evening, the next morning it locked up somehow. I didn't even know it was possible for a SSD to do that. Now when I try to access it in any way it freezes. I have tried external enclosures and two other PCs. Soon as you try to see the root files on the drive it goes into 100% Disk Use, and locks up 2 to 3 seconds later, a lot of the times, crashing the PC.

Other Thoughts: -Would I recommend? Let's go with NO. I used to love PNY... after getting rejected for an RMA because I purchased from "NewEgg, I was told I couldn't prove I was the original purchaser." I will no longer buy anything made by or being sponsered by PNY.
Dear, PNY... please don't just copy/paste your technical support information... I have been down that road before.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible product. Died a month or so after use.

This review is from: PNY XLR8 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD9SC120GMDF-RB

Pros: Nothing.

Cons: After reading around my suspicions are correct. PNY is selling people defected SDDs. Mine died roughly a month after usage. No SSD on the market should be like this. If you know what's good for you, stay away!

Other Thoughts: Going to contact PNY for a replacement.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage product

This review is from: PNY XLR8 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD9SC120GMDF-RB

Pros: Worked great for a year.

Cons: Write speeds slowed to a crawl (~<10mb/s). RMA'd the first one. Again, worked great for around a year, then did the same thing. Buying a Samsung EVO to replace it.

Other Thoughts: Stay away from PNY

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible. Avoid.

This review is from: PNY XLR8 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD9SC120GMDF-RB

Pros: Decent Read Speeds.
Nothing Else.

Cons: Write speeds not as advertised. The drive was advertised as having 450MB/s write speeds. It's not even close. The write speed is only 4mb/s, and your system will hang until any writing is done. I'm not the only one with this problem either, look up "PNY XLR8 Slow Write Speed" on Google. I'm guessing something is wrong with the drive, and I'd RMA it, but the PNY support site is less than helpful, and doesn't seem to be going through.

They also didn't tell me I had to register it within 90 days, so I can't register it on their site either.

1 out of 5 eggsShotty

This review is from: PNY XLR8 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD9SC120GMDF-RB

Pros: it's fast. We ordered the first one from Newegg. Newegg is amazing and we received the product promptly.

Cons: The first one died at 3 months. PNY made us pay to ship it back and get the replacement. 4 months after we received the replacement, the shotty product died again, with the same issue.

Other Thoughts: NEVER buying a PNY product again.

This review is from: PNY XLR8 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD9SC120GMDF-RB

Pros: It was fast while it worked. Works even when very very cold (below freezing).

Cons: It died about a year after buying it, causing my system to slow to a crawl... It would stop being recognized at all when it got warm, I had to put it in the freezer to get it to last long enough to clone onto a new drive...

1 out of 5 eggsNewegg Knowingly sold me an Defective Product...

This review is from: PNY XLR8 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD9SC120GMDF-RB

Pros: It was awesome, until i realised, after much digging, that sandforce controllers are incompatible with Haswell Chipsets.

https://communities.intel.com/thread/33953

Cons: So if you using this SSD with a Haswell based Chip, you will eventually have the following symptoms...

1. Large Writes, will completely Freeze the Controller, which in turn causes a parasitic symptom to your SATA controller, causing your PC to crawl like a slug, when transferring data. Or BSOD if its your OS's drive.

2. Magically Disconnect itself, when installing applications, games, transferring data.

3. Lose Data, given this Drive was used to only store games, I've had to reinstall them due to game files mysteriously missing. It was painful to have to reinstall GTA5 multiple times.

Other Thoughts: I really wish I did my research before buying this SSD, I have a newer kingston that works flawlessly. This Drive has been nothing but problems, never thought Transferring Data could bring my whole PC to a crawl, until what cause was..my SSD...

I have already RMA'd Once with PNY, but I doubt a 2nd RMA, will remedy a problem that is engineered into the Controller.

But, if you aren't Using a Haswell Chip. You should be fine, good luck!
