Will fail, son or later (probably sonner..)

 

I would have paid more for a product of quality, but at the time I bought this one, most of the reviews were good... :-(

Cheap fast for read

Failed after 1,4 year of moderate use. The partition table was corrupted. The bigger partition (2/3 of total size) was completely lost. It was possible to read the data from the other partitions, but not helped mutch, because the valuable data was in...

Garbage

 

Imation should stick to floppy disks and just remove their tech support areas of their web site, totally useless.

Runs fast, until it corrupts your data

Ran for about 2 months in my macpro then I saw some strange stuff and realized it was corrupting files. Promptly removed. I contacted tech support via email, NO RESPONSE. I then installed it in a non-critical mac-mini and had to run disk repair at...

Something isn't write...

 

Although benchmarks show this drive to perform well, It's real world performance is much worse than my old HDD (750gb maxtor). It can load windows faster, but it stalls when watching Starcraft 2 replays, I takes 5 times as long to install programs like...

Inexpensive for a SSD. Small

Slow real world speeds

My Imation SSD died today

 

I have contacted Imation via email (their tech support is not staffed on weekends and today is Sunday) and will await their reply. RMAing and hoping for a replacement that doesn't suck. Any future business I do with Imation hangs in the balance here......

Currently None

After a year of ownership and lackluster performance, my Imation 27510 64GB SSD died today. Won't boot up, hangs at a black screen after starting to boot into Win7, won't even get to a point to boot in safemode. Gparted and Active@KillDisk show the...

Many Failures

 

Imation has been good about this. For the second failure, they did not make me jump through the hoops, just sent me a replacement drive with no questions asked. Makes me wonder though how many other people are having issues.

Fast read and write times ; Small Form Factor

Has failed twice since I bought it a few months ago. I am on my third drive and hopefully will have one that works like it is supposed to

Imation M-Class 27510 2.5" 64GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

 

I bought one for my laptop, and one for my HTPC and ended up replacing them with HDD. Will not be buying anymore SSDs for a number of years yet.

Has fast read times. Booting up or opening applications was FAST! This party I loved

Anything that involved multitasking or writing to the drive was slow and/or would cause the whole computer to pause for a second or 3. I tried to get used to this, but could not stand it

Fast drive! Set it up right so its not slow!

 

Before you give this a terrible rating. Please make sure you install it correctly! dont just drop it in and throw win 7 on it. Make sure you update the firmware for the drive, install windows and make sure trim support is enabled.

Fast, Wicked fast windows 7 install. Installed in my hp envy, the old drive was an 80 second boot time and it was 7200rpm. Now the laptop boots in 20-25 seconds

SSD still expensive and this is a con for all of them. Is the performance gain worth it

I bought this,,, why?

 

Pass on this SSD. Do yourself a favor and get something with a "Sandforce" controller. Currently, SSDs with that controller tend to have the best all around performance. It's a little bit more money, but you will not be disappointed. Look into the OCZ...

Like all SSDs, the read times are faster than almost any mechanical hard drive. There is no heat, no noise, and no chance of mechanical failure. No studdering. Price was fair at $130

This SSD has an updated J-Micron controller, which is a step up from the previous pathetic version. This drive is definitely not for power users or gamers, as the controller still can easily be overwhelmed into stalling and studdering. Downloading...
