Simply, magnificent

I upgraded already an 8 years old laptop and it has been over 2 years. It is super fast and no flaws so far. I also convinced many friends to upgrade their old laptops and they are more than happy with it.

Great Speeds

i was using a samsung evo on my desktop pc. i decided to put that ssd on my laptop and put this ssd on my desktop for the meantime. What a great surprise the write speeds on this is fast. the build seems cheap and it doesn't even come with any screws. But all in all great compromise i would recommend it.

  • from Whitby, ON

Nice surprise

I purchased this drive based on reviews because of a lack of familiarity with the brand name. What a great surprise. After cloning my existing drive to this one the gains in stability and speed were more than expected. I would happily recommend this drive to family and friends. .After installing four other ssd's in the last year this was the best.

Awesome SSD Drive

I have had mine for over a year now. I got it when I bought an Asus computer from BB as well. Did a reinstall of Win 10 onto the SSD which got rid of all the 'bloatware'. Really fast startups/shutdowns.. Overall a very fast drive

  • from Nanaimo


This took my new laptop from good to GREAT! Super fast.

Amazing upgrade

This is one of the best upgrades I've made to my computer. Everything on the drive runs so much faster. You can't go wrong with this.

  • from Surrey

Good Drive

Good drive, excellent upgrade from a magnetic platter drive but doesn't have the speed over the better MLC drives in this range. That's not an issue if you're not doing a lot of data intensive operations. My real issues are that it didn't come with any mounting accessories and the software provided by Silicon Power isn't particularly good. I'd suggest Macrium Reflect instead, which is free for home users.

Fantastic way to boost your machine

Installed this drive today into my Acer 5810TZ laptop (circa 2009). Did a fresh Windows 10 Pro install and immediately noticed the performance difference. Bootup/shutdown time dramatically improved. Web videos playback smoothly with no stuttering. One of the most simple ways to upgrade your computers.

Best Upgrade for my laptop

After swapping out my hard drive with this SSD, my laptop is so much faster, quieter, increased battery life, nothing bad to say about this SSD, it's been working so well on my Dell Inspiron laptop. I never heard of this brand before but I took the chance because it was on sale and glad it worked out ok.

it's ssd, what do you expect?

Been using it for couple of weeks. No issue so far. Can't tell about its reliability. If you are a casual computer user that doesn't run large amount of data at once, this ssd is good. I don't know how well it performs comparing with other ssd if you use it heavily. Regarding the software, if you want the software that monitor how much data it has written in real time, this is not for you as the software only opens when you open it. It doesn't run in the background like samsung ssd does. so if you're a casual user who doesn't care about ssd monitor tool and thinking about upgrading from hdd, ssd will wow you. But you'll get used to the pace very soon.

It's my second time buying this brand; one for my desktop and one for my laptop. Both work pretty well.

  • from Langley, BC

Good drive

Any drive that is used by a Maximum PC editor ( Jarred Walton ) has to be good.

Awesome drive for the price

After formatting and reinstalling Windows 10 on an old Toshiba 160 GB drive in my living room HTPC Nano PC I still wasn't happy with it. It is a Celeron J1800 2.41 GHz dual core with 4GB RAM and integrated graphics. The system had no problem playing HD movies and the few emulated games we like on it. but was definitely starting to show it's age. Adding this drive helped breathe new life into the computer. Boot time went from about 1 minute, 15 seconds to about 15 seconds - both drives with a fresh install of Windows 10. Accessing programs, games, movies, browsing the internet etc is WAY faster. For general purpose use this old computer is as good as anybody would ever need. I know this is considered a value drive, but I am very impressed with it.

  • from Richmond Hill, ON

Good Quality and Performed as Expected for SSD

Got this drive online from BestBuy, super fast delivery. The build quality is very good although it feels light and plastic in casing. The performance is what you would expect for SSDs. I’ve duplicated this drive from a mechanical drive and put it in as the primary drive for a mini PC. No problem whatsoever. The price is very reasonably compared to other similar ones. I would recommend this drive.
