    It's not bad for it's price. If you have a few more bucks/Euros, I recommend a Samsung or HyperX instead of this.

    I've used only SSDs on my computers for the last 5 years and I simply cannot go back to legacy HDDs. This was the cheapest SSD I found at the time. Although 240GB might not seem like much, the speed trade off is worth it for me. Windows boots in a few seconds and any application loads instantly.

    It's very fast for what I need and it's cheap.

    I always use these A-Data drives in budget systems. Can't go wrong. Have yet to have any problems with them.

    Can't ever go back to HDD for OS, and this is plenty fast for plenty cheap too!

    Not the quickest SSD but that's fine since my mobo's sata controller is not up to full sata 6 speeds.

    A SSD for the system is a must. The cheap cost and superiour boot speeds and stability make it a simple choice. Mechanical drives are too big and slow... M.2 and PCI-E memory is too expensive and not worth the additional seconds off the boot time or the additional Motherboard cost for a model that supports it.

    A 240GB SSD is more cost effective than a 120GB, but jumping to a 480 from 240 still doubles the price.

    For maximum value, I would consider running 2X 240GB SSD in RAID 0 for the performance boost for basically the same cost as a single 480 GB. (I intend to make this upgrade next.)

    The variance in performance of SSD does not justify the price variations. GET THE CHEAPEST ONE YOU CAN FIND.

    As it stands, the single SSD allows me to boot into a desktop from hitting the power button in 19 seconds (Win 7, WITHOUT quick-boot)

    NOTE: I am eager to quantify the increase in boot speed once I go RAID 0 after adding a second 240. I expect nearly 90% increase in speeds.

    Loads up Windows in seconds. Great SSD. Would recommend for budget builds.

    As a first time SSD user, I'm loving the improvement in OS boot time as well as file transfer rates. This specific brand and model does not break the bank either, so I recommend!
