      SSDs make such a difference

      This is my second PNY SSD: got a CS1311 for my main laptop (this one that I'm typing on). Was replacing the battery and fan in my son's HP x360, and decided to take the SSD plunge for him while I had the case cracked open. The drive is a featherweight and dropped right into place of a slim HDD (also has an adapter for 9.5mm height I think). The i5 laptop is now much more responsive. Comes with a key for Acronis True Image, but hear me out. If you're using Windows 10 you'll probably get the most benefit from a clean re-install of the OS. It's a little more work to back up your files and restore your software keys, download and install drivers, etc.: but the performance difference is night and day. Most people that don't notice much speed difference going SSD cloned from their old hard drive (especially if you're still on an OEM installation). You can Google a utility from Microsoft to make an installation USB stick. Wish these were not so much more per GB than HDDs, but the performance difference is worth it. My son doesn't use much space, so I was able to buy this about 1/3 the size of the original HDD with plenty of room to spare.

      This ssd was purchased about 48 hours ago and it has been in use in the laptop for about four hours now. It has replaced a 500GB 5400 rpm conventional hard drive that was manufactured in 2012 (according to its label). The expectation is not for the laptop to perform like a new one because it is six years old. The expectation is for the laptop to perform better, which it does. Startup is faster as one might expect/hope. The ssd also is considerably quieter. Mini Partition Wizard made the setup much easier than Acronis, a code for which is included in the box with the ssd. That setup was abandoned for one that proved much more efficient. My experience with PNY products goes back many years and includes memory, flash drives, and video cards. Like all of those products, this one should last for a long time while extending the life of a laptop. Then it may find itself in another machine and will continue to work fine. The price was good and the store pickup was smooth as usual.

      I got this drive 2 months ago to upgrade a laptop, it worked very well for the 2 months that it worked. let me get my taxes done allowed me to make a bunch of document files on it. I started to login one day to get some work done and my laptop froze up for a long time which was very odd. i rebooted to to find everything was gone I was unable to recover anything as the data was gone. I returned it to best by only to get a smarty, "if you had purchased our service plan i could replace it and you would be on your way." so i called PNY for an RMA, i have to ship it to them to verify that i know the drive is bad and that i didn't not tamper with it. Needless to say, if I'm going to have to deal with vendors directly then from now on i'll deal with them directly. And the next one won't be a PNY this is the third drive i have have had that has just self destructed.

      BEST LAPTOP UPGRADE I EVER DID

      Picture this - I had just bought a 2nd hand laptop and it stumped me what the problem was - I had a 1 tb hd, core i7 processor and 12 gigs of ram. and. still. really. slow. Even after taking to a computer shop, it still was quite laggy, and my brother actually recommended me to upgrade to SSD. Albeit the storage space is smaller, the performance MAKES UP FOR IT TENFOLD. Trust me, making the switch to SSD was a game-changer, and this was super easy to clone my current drive on, and install - took about maybe about 3 hours for the whole process. And now my laptop does not take 3 hours to boot.

      Smooth Boot Drive

      Bought as part of a PC upgrade, it has improved my boot times greatly over my previous SSDs. Every new window snaps open quite well instead of being sluggish. Read/Write speeds above average on this specific product, even over other SSDs I have running right now. It's been as reliable as every SSD I've gotten so far, all of which are currently running in this or other PCs. The only change I would make is that I would have gotten a larger size given the opportunity. But keeping the cost of the build down was a must.

      Best single upgrade I have ever down

      this is regarding a 2014 Lenovo B50-30 with 4GB ram and 500GB hard drive (mechanical) I can't speak to the longevity of the PNY ssd as it has only been in computer for a couple of hours. But it is like I am on a newer different computer. It was taking me minutes to boot up now it is seconds. I sit there twiddling my thumbs when trying to load outlook or power point now they open in no time. I was scared to death of cloning my hard drive, but the link/software provided by PNY made it a breeze. Very happy with my purchase Best Buy, can't wait until the 4GB of ram that is suppose to get here tomorrow.

      My client had an older HP PC with an Intel Dual Core Processor. It was Windows 7. It had 4 GB ram and a 1Tb hard drive, that he was only using 80GB of it. He said it was slow. He didn't want the SSD drive, or more ram, just Windows 10. We upgraded him to Windows 10. He said it was slow. And then we upgraded his RAM. He said it was slow. It wasn't until we upgraded his HD to an SSD that he REALLY saw the difference. Super quiet, super fast boot times, limited heat output. Great investment in an older PC. Makes a new PC even faster.

      PNY CS900 SSD

      I purchased two Samsung SSDs online. Got to the store and they didn't have the smaller of the two. I've never purchased PNY products before, but when BB didn't have the Samsung they gave me discount on PNY CS900. I thought awesome customer service. 35ish hours of work mixing and beginning of mastering my audio files the storage drive takes a dump on me. I tried recovering files with my companies IT guy to no avail. ALL MY WORK LOST. I do not recommend putting important files on this drive, and I have learned an important lesson. BACK UP BACK UP BACK UP.
