Great while it lasted...

 

Easy to install, FAST! Never had a hiccup while it was working.

The only con i have is that it died 5 months out of warranty. Thats pretty disappointing. I Believe that a great product should last well beyond its warranty. But you get what you pay for.

This thing Rocks!!!

 

Bought this in 2013. Installed it in my netbook after signs of the stock HDD failing. Super cool. What noise? Still use it today. I got mine before everyone realized just what a gold mine these things were. I paid $104 for mine. Wish I had bought more...

G.SKILL FM-25S3-120GBP3

 

Purchased and installed 2 years ago. So far still running without issues

A little on the slow side

My first SSD!

 

I had this in my desktop before my desktop (even in my desktop it was a force to be reckoned with) decided to fry and moved this SSD to my laptop which increased the speed of it by a noticeable amount and the laptop is by far not bad it's just not...

-Very fast -Low power use! -Small enough to use in most laptops. -Stays cool! (I have touched it after a heavy load and it does not sizzle my finger at all.) -Very easy to install as most hardrives/SSDs are.

Price (When I purchased it - it has went down a good amount since then.)

18 months later

 

Make sure you do your homework. 120gb at this price is not good. Look at Crucial samsung or Corsair.

GsKill makes great products, no issues in 18 months. faster than my Seagate HDD i had

Krystaldisk test show that this disk never readis half the rated speed. i get about 208mbs max in sata6.0 AHCI. Wish i had done more homewok and went Crucial or Samsung Evo and got more space and speed for the same price i paid

It's All Good

 

Worked right out of the box ; Superb speed, fully loads Windows 8.1 in 10 seconds from a cold boot ; Comes with a 3.5" tray adapter if you don't have a 2.5" bay

Who likes 30 second complete reboots?

 

SSDs will not yeild you noticable FPS, but that's not why I got them. I despised waiting 1.5 minutes for a BF4 map to load, or only being able to do 2ish things at a time. When I was doing my installation I was able to browse the internet, download 2...

I'm not lying, from the final click on restart to sign in screen is just under 30 seconds. Easily set up and comes with a HDD to SDD mount

SSD to GB price, but you gain so much speed I feel it's almost a wash
