To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have not had a problem with this device. I bought it for transferring Windows 10 from my traditional hard drive to an SSD for faster booting and running apps. My Zheino 360gb SSD is doing exactly what I purchased it for. I picked the 360gb because it was slightly larger than the hard drive that I have, and it is not expensive. You will need to order a bracket for it so that you can mount it in a 3.5" drive bay if installing in a desktop PC.
3 Months and 5 days, total failure. Data recovery for the client is crucial but not much hope here. This is my first complete failure of an SSD, I hope this isn't a trend. Amazon says product support for this drive ended 10 days ago! So much for the 3 year warranty.
I'm attaching CrystalDiskMark - decent performance for the current price of $21. Won't outperform high-end SSDs, but then it costs a lot less.. Question for manufacturer: I'd like to put one on an early SATA II PC (used daily), that does NOT have AHCI (and hence no native TRIM support). I understand that it will be throttled to <300 MB/s but I am concerned with further loss to performance and reliability over time due to lack of TRIM NCQ etc
These things are amazing. So inexpensive and yet they can breath new life into older computers. This is probably one of the best upgrades you can give a PC as far as speed is concerned. I'd take a computer with lesser processor and RAM if it has a good SSD in it.
Works flawlessly, starts up fast. My 2012 Thinkpad now acts like it's running Puppy Linux instead of win10 lol . Unlike my PNY SSD, this brand doesn't come with adapters to go 9mm, but no biggie--any pieces of plastic or credit cards will do the trick. Just something to keep in mind in case you have extra credit card offers.
Expected less from this product. Hope will work for atleast a few years. P.S. Plugged the SSD in another slot on my MB controled by another chipset and sequential read and write speed gone up for another 100MB/s each.
