Bought this to breath life into my slowing laptop, and it was just what I needed!


-Very fast & stable drive that didn't require any adjustments to my laptop's UEFI/BIOS -easy install

-Wait for this item to go on sale, in this drive's full price range, there are better brands

PNY CS2111 2.5" 240GB SATA-III


Very ez to install, looks great in my Thermaltake Core P5 open case. BIG difference betrwen this SSD and regular sata platter hard drive, systems boots up in about 20 seconds.

Simple and easy to put to use in a Desktop


Price was great for a performance SSD. I bought this to put into an aging Desktop PC, and now I'm thinking about getting a second one to install in my HTPC for an upgrade.

Took no time at all to install. Cloned the old HDD to this SSD and was running my OS much faster right away. Applications load so much faster. Boot time is quick and shutdowns take no time at all. Great choice for the price.

None. It's only been a great SSD.

Great SSD


I see the price is now almost double what I paid, I would buy again for $69, would not for the $120~ its priced at now.

I think the benefits of upgrading to a SSD over ye olden platter drives is pretty straight forward. - Awesome Speeds - I Picked this up when it was $69.99

None so far

SSD WHAT else to say


should of got a 400 as this will fill up fast.

Revives that old slug and makes it feel like new. When people say its a worthy upgrade well dang. Ive been trying to hold off as long as i could but wow have these come a long way. Cant really describe other pro except it really changes your pc.

220GB actual free space. Companies need to stop with this marking bull cra p and just give us the real numbers.

Brought old MacBook Pro back to life


This is overkill for my old MacBook Pro, used this to replace the 120GB hard drive. Not a problem for DIY. It increased the speed on start up and running programs. I'm not a gamer just needed more room to upgrade the newer OS X and apps that now...
