1 out of 5 eggsEven if the price goes to $0, it's still not worth it.

Pros: Compatible with older laptops.
Boot times are somewhat improved.
Gives you more time to do other things (see end of "other thoughts")

Cons: Can't be returned.
Transcend won't help either.
This drive is UNBELIEVABLY slow when it approaches 1/3 usage. Write operations are so slow that installing an older game (original Half Life) from an image -- which takes 35 SECONDS with a mechanical drive -- took more than 45 minutes with this SSD before I pulled the plug. I tried this twice, same results. Once the drive has accumulated 10GB of data (a Windows 7 installation with updates), *any* write operation takes forever.
You won't be able to download anything to this disk, install antivirus, or copy files unless you have all week to wait. Your hard drive activity LED may as well be the power button.
After 8 total hours playing with page files, system restore, write caching, indexing settings and power settings with Windows 7, I tried XP and did the same thing. No improvement. This drive is a slug.

Other Thoughts: Newegg will not take it back.
Transcend does NOT have a firmware update for this drive on their website.
This is the OLDER hardware version 6140-S2 for which there is currently no firmware upgrade available. After taking another 1/2 hour out of my life to find the update, erase and format my thumb drive to apply it (can't be done within Windows, as many other components allow nowadays) I was notified that this disk does not meet the hardware revision of the only firmware update on Transcend's site.
I contacted a "Technical Support Engineer" at Transcend's Maryland office. He emailed me a link to the same firmware upgrade.
I called him directly and explained the issue entirely. He said he would look into it and didn't call back.
Two days later I called him back. He said he would email me the link to the right upgrade. He never emailed the link and never called.

With no usable laptop, I have plenty of time to write product reviews (using my desktop, of course).

1 out of 5 eggsJUNK!

Pros: None, slow as hell.

Cons: Can't get a refund... don't even want a replacement... this thing is SO SLOW when you load Windows XP on it and it's in an old Inspiron 4150. Didn't try it in anything else and frankly don't want to waste anymore time on this drive. When you load the OS, it takes forever for the drive to stop tasking. It's about 3-4 times slower then a traditional 5400 rpm drive. STAY AWAY!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Speed, weight (this thing is as light as a feather)

Cons: Price. There are some SATA drives (like the OCZ Vertex 2) with similar/greater capacity that are either cheaper or close what this drive costs. On the other hand, this is the most cost efficient IDE SSD I could find anywhere, so.

Other Thoughts: Threw this drive in an old Dell Latitude D610 to replace an old 40GB mechanical drive and promptly installed Ubuntu 10.10. Drive was detected perfectly and installed without a hitch. Ubuntu recognizes it as an SSD. It's super fast now compared to the old spinner I had in there. Bootup takes like 15-20 seconds. Shutdown takes like 5 seconds. It's only been a day but I'm happy so far.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA then Out of Stock

Pros: Quiet

Cons: After 2 days... slow went to slow went to even slower. Item was sent back and now out of stock.

I guess that "Stuff" happens, but I think it was impersonable to simply refund this purchase without giving me an option to substitute/alternate or something.

I guess it's easier to "Press a button"

Other Thoughts: Maybe retailers forget that people ordering online:

4 out of 5 eggsDidn't play nice w/ Lappy - Want to sell

Pros: Easy to install in my dell 600m laptop.

Cons: Does not play well with dell 600m laptop. After spending a few weekends toying with it, I have decided it's not worth any more energy to get it working the way I hoped it would. I did a fresh install of XP and after finally getting the drives for my laptop all up and running I still had noticeable stutter issues. When opening FireFox with 10-15 browser windows (you tube, random flash sites, msn, etc - not light weight stuff I know) it just stalls forever. Also, while that many tabs are open it would also stall.

My laptop has 1gb ram, so I know that a lot of the issues are caused by that but the "freezes" that happen are more noticeable than the regular old hard drive trashing.

Next I installed Windows 7 (yay Family 3 pack) and found that it ran BETTER, but then only having 1gb of ram seemed to hurt more because of the general OS memory footprint.

Other Thoughts: I can't return this to newegg, and I have no other old systems with ATA interfaces that could use the hard drive. I'd be happy to sell mine for $80+ shipping method of choice. - SirSigma78 a t gm ail If interested

5 out of 5 eggsHelpful Tips for SSD

Pros: Cheap and does the job. Works great NOW. Fast as can be. Doesnt compare to Intel Drives. They seem more plug and play than this one.

Cons: Took some tweeking. At first there was stuttering and it was slow beyond belief. The cursor would freeze and it was a Panasonic tough book cf-28. Worked great at first but slowness took over. Was ready to toss and use as an external but then I installed a MS patch. for me this WAS NOT A PLUG AND PLAY DRIVE.

Other Thoughts: If you need to tweek this thing google make ssd more xp friendly and go to the ocz forum. its also http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/forum/showthread.php?43460-Making-XP-pro-SSD-friendly

Don't let the tweeking scare you its not so bad if you have a little more then average understanding of windows.

5 out of 5 eggsNew LIfe To PowerBook G4 Titanium

Pros: • Fast
• Mounts perfectly
• Cut boot times from 1.5 mins to 24 secs
• Most programs open within 10 secs (used to be closer to 30)

Cons: • None

Other Thoughts: I replaced the stock 30GB 4200rpm drive that came in my aging PowerBook G4 Titanium (667Mhz) with this. After a pretty easy swap out (involving some Torx T8 screws), I booted from a MAC OS X Tiger installation DVD, and formatted the drive (MAC OS Extended w/out Journal), and then installed OS fresh. After a few rounds of updates, I followed some instructions I found through a Goolge search of "processes" tp turn off to extend the life of the drive (by cutting down on excessive writes, which honestly there are many sources of on a Mac). Drive has been going strong for a few weeks at this point, with no sign of slowing down so far. Very pleased with this purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsContinuation of truncated review, above

Pros: As stated earlier

Cons: None as yet; will report here if any develop

Other Thoughts: After I installed the Transcend , I installed Ubuntu 10.04. I do not have actual numbers to describe the changes in performance. I can say that speed at least doubled. WiFi, using my cheap Belkin router, is now always at 100% and very fast. Epiphany, the Ubuntu browser, leaves FireFox in the dust. Programs like Open Office Word and Spreadsheet just jump to the screen.My old Inspiron 8500 acts like it is on digital viagra and steroids.
Fresh installation of Ubuntu 10-04. Speed has AT LEAST doubled, including WiFi. Open Office Word and Spreadsheet open in 2-3 seconds! Boot time and shutdown very fast. Using Ubuntu's Epiphany browser, Internet access and and searches leaves Firefox in the dust. The old Inspiron 8500 is like a new system. Very happy with performance. Beats the stuffin out of buying a new notebook

5 out of 5 eggsWorth it.

Pros: See :"Other thoughts" below for system details and installation results.
Fast, cool, quiet, easy install, rugged, cost effective.

Cons: None as yet - time will tell and I will report it here.

Other Thoughts: I installed the Transcend 32gb MLC SSD into a 2003 Dell Inspiron 8500 (2 gb ram, Pentium4 @ 2.2ghz, Nvidia Graphics card 64mb.) It replaced an original Hitachi 40gb 5400 IDE that had several bad sectors. I am not a gamer; just use word processing and spreadsheets (Open Office), Internet research and buying (Ixquick), gmail, and some photo editing. This notebook has been from Taiwan to Texas, to Wilmington (NC) to Japan, Guam, Hawaii, California, and now back home to Wilmington, NC - lottsa bumps, thus the bad sectors. Had a small faux glitch when I physically replaced the Hitachi - after I got it out, I noticed it had a slot connector, whereas the SSD had pin connectors. Got help on Eggspert from Game Playin Asian Guy (his handle) who politely informed me that all I had to do is tug on the Hitachi slot, and it would pull off as it was a pin-to-slot adapter. I did - it did, and I stuck in on the Transcend. After that - no problem. Embarrassing.

Unlike others, I do not have ac
