It's not bad for it's price. If you have a few more bucks/Euros, I recommend a Samsung or HyperX instead of this.
I always use these A-Data drives in budget systems. Can't go wrong. Have yet to have any problems with them.
Cheap, reliable and has plenty of storage. My only gripe is that it is kind of slow for an SSD (though it is still much faster than an HDD).
I've been using this for a week and it is fast! Definitely worth it and cheaper than other SSD names out there.
It's very fast for what I need and it's cheap.
This was a great price for a 240gb SSD. I would highly recommend getting an SSD instead of a HDD. With this SSD I can turn on my computer to typing in search results in 15 seconds flat. I'm sure other SSD's can do this as well so feel free to choose!
My opinion: This SSD isn't that stylish unless you have a silver/bird theme going on. It comes with a bracket that has some glue that you can peel back to stick to your SSD. I'm not using it but it could come in handy for something... It does not come with an "adapter" from a 2.5" to a 3.5" drive unless you can use that piece to fit it in somehow.
A SSD for the system is a must. The cheap cost and superiour boot speeds and stability make it a simple choice. Mechanical drives are too big and slow... M.2 and PCI-E memory is too expensive and not worth the additional seconds off the boot time or the additional Motherboard cost for a model that supports it.
A 240GB SSD is more cost effective than a 120GB, but jumping to a 480 from 240 still doubles the price.
For maximum value, I would consider running 2X 240GB SSD in RAID 0 for the performance boost for basically the same cost as a single 480 GB. (I intend to make this upgrade next.)
The variance in performance of SSD does not justify the price variations. GET THE CHEAPEST ONE YOU CAN FIND.
As it stands, the single SSD allows me to boot into a desktop from hitting the power button in 19 seconds (Win 7, WITHOUT quick-boot)
NOTE: I am eager to quantify the increase in boot speed once I go RAID 0 after adding a second 240. I expect nearly 90% increase in speeds.
Bang for your buck ssd. This is a perfectly good, cheaper ssd.
Loads up Windows in seconds. Great SSD. Would recommend for budget builds.
Boot time is under 10 seconds, everything is insanely responsive and opens very fast. You certainly get what you pay for, but if you have a little more money to burn I'd recommend a higher quality Samsung SSD, they'll definitely last you longer.
