Great inexpensive SSD. Samsung 850 EVO would've been my first choice and Crucial MX100 my second, but this was on sale for $70 and I couldn't resist.
I haven't owned it long enough, from kitguru.net they've killed the 5 ssd's OCZ challenged them to kill at 300tb+ which is less than the tech report for their batch of ssd's. It's not an apple to oranges comparison though as their probably racking up writes differently and under real world use we're not constantly writing to them. I am racking up quite the writes, especially hibernating my pc with high ram use, but overall speed is fantastic to me, I never want to go back to a mechanical hard drive. It's silent and everything is so much snappier and instantaneous, I wish I had gotten one sooner.
Looking just at the SSD's performance and the slightly less capacity I'd give it a 3 star. I get about 400MB's READ and 380MB's WRITE but it gets an extra star for the price.
As my first SSD i'm not disappointed with the speeds this can achieve, if you're in the same scenario then i would recommend it as its a massive improvement over a HDD, its well priced and looks great especially in a blue build. I'm not completely sure how well this does in relation to competitors, but reviewers seem to think pretty highly of it.
A very fast and affordable SSD. Installed it along with MSI H97M-G43 motherboard. Speeds in my case are read 550MB/s, write 420MB/s. Great!
Decided to fork over the extra 40 bucks for a SSD instead of an HDD and I'm glad I did. Super fast and works great. Loads photoshop and dreamweaver in a couple of seconds and Windows boots faster than my monitors can turn on.
Might not be the most high end SSD out there, but its fast enough while having plenty of enough space for my OS and media programs. Will update if needed.
The Arc 100 was on a good sale and i was running out of space. no complaints, nice and fast. i mainly use it for my steam library.
Fast, good looking, and a large enough capacity for OS and a good amount of games.
Got the drive for $60, very good speeds and a lovely look of the drive.
