Drive Failed

 

The warranty factored into my purchase decision, but I did not factor in the likelihood of them not honoring it.

Cheap SSD, I bought two ; Before failing, both drives worked well enough to saturate my SATA2 controller. They are SATA3 capable but my board was not but I assume they would have performed to spec. I configured them as a raid

After three months of very light use and zero smart errors, it just up and died. It no longer showed up in bios on any machine. I tried to RMA it to have it replaced/repaired, but VisionTek is declining to honor their warranty, adding new warranty...

Great Driver but NO EXTRAS

I posted a review that was slightly negative looking at the results from the benchmark of AS-SSD.I tried a different benchmark tool and got very close to visiontek's speed claims. I got 540MB Read, and 525MB Write. Apparently AS-SSD doesn't use...

Fast SSD for a good price

 

This is a good buy, but it does not comes with a data migration software, sata cable, or mounting brackets. As for the read and write speed the Visiontek SSD performance is great, I just used the data migration software that came with my 180gb Intel...

Good price and AMAZING performance

 

I had a First Gen SSD (90GB) which I thought was fast. I replaced it with a Second Gen (120GB) and I was shocked that it was a big improvement compared to my original SSD. Forward to 2 months ago. I needed more space so I bought this Third Gen SSD...
