Experience: 6 Weeks


5 year warranty
easy to install
Got this to use as my boot drive to replace a 1tb hard drive (7200rpm). Was very easy to install. Windows 7 installed fast on it and boots up VERY fast.. less then 10 seconds and my pc is fully booted and ready for action. I would highly recommend this SSD to anyone looking for a great quality ssd. Ran benchmarks and got very close to the advertised speeds. Was off by MAYBE 1% or less. (SATA3)
Some may say that at $149.99 it's too much $, but for what you get with this drive it's worth every cent.

Extremely reliable
not the cheapest
I have one of these drives for a while now and I way out performs my samsung 240 gig ssd that I just recently purchased

Experience: 7 Weeks


Plextor quality, speeds are very close to what's advertised, awesome 5 year warranty, no issues whatsoever. What more do you need?? Excellent value, especially when on sale.
Installation of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit was very smooth and fast. Comes with an adapter so it can work in 3.5" bays. I feel confident it will last a long time! Highly recommended.

Experience: 3 Months


Fast, decent price
This drive actually benchmarked as rated (unlike some SSDs). I spent a little more on this rather than getting a cheap 128GB SSD and I'm glad I did. It's super fast. I'm currently running Windows 8 Pro off it and I can't complain about this drive at all.

The mounting bracket is a nice touch and is high quality. I ended up not needing it, but it'll go in the parts bin.

Experience: 4 Weeks


Very fast and reliable drive
Only 119 of 128G
Very fast and reliable,can handle heavy workload without missing a beat,great for gaming too

Experience: 1 Years


Very fast.
Some trouble making windows detect it the first time like every SSD
I have been using this hard drive for a year and it is still as fast as the first time. I am thinking about buying a second to put them in RAID.
It's what you need for a high end pc.

Experience: 3 Days


5 Year Warranty
Very Fast
Extremely Reliable
Only 7mm thick
Decent Packaging
Comes with 3.5in bracket
Runs cool
I purchased this as my main OS drive on my new PC. It is much faster than my other 3 SSD's in the other PC's in my house.
Scores a 7.8 WEI. My Kingston V100's and Corsair GT SSD's never cracked 7.0.
With a 5 year warranty, you cannot go wrong.

Experience: 4 Months


Excellent performance.
None so far.
Installed this drive as primary OS drive on my secondary machine.
System is very snappy, and this drive has incredible performance levels.
Have been running for months now rock solid, zero issues whatsoever. Would recommend.

Experience: 1 Months


-more expensive than other SSd
my very first SSD drive and i'm very happy with it. Went for plextor based on the recommendation from other users on the forum. It's a lil more expensive but you get what you pay for

Experience: 1 Weeks


Pretty much 840 pro level of performance for less $$$
Included software is not on DVD, it instead comes with install codes, and information where to download the software.
This thing is crazy fast, in the top 3 SSDs available for sure, and is cheaper than the Samsung 840 pro, and comes with a bracket (which makes it an even better value if you need one)

I also read good things about Plextor reliability, which is why I went with this drive. (I also have a Crucial m4 on my other PC)
