Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Boot

Boot:
"This avoids one of the weaknesses of dual boot systems on the same disk drive."
_
"This worked perfectly for nearly five months - and then failed catastrophically, losing all my data and refusing to boot."
_
"If you want to buy one of those devices It will work fine and you'll be happy... for a while until it fails and even linux won't manage to boot ;(."
_
"I then spent 3 frustrating days trying to get the machine to boot from the MyDigitalSSD."
_
"Very reliable and boot up times are still much faster than compared to my other laptop."
_
"Works great in a thinkpad t450s, using as boot drive."
_
"The BIOS was able to detect the SSD and is even shown in the boot screen."
_
"I replaced my Lenovo Y510P's stock 24GB cache SSD with this 128GB product, cloned the stock Win8.1 OS to it, and have been delighted ever since with the boot time and performance improvements."
_
"Using this as a boot drive in my gaming rig.... fast as lightning and just works greatgotta love 7 second boot and shutdowns! "

Cache

Cache:
"This MyDigitalSSD drive which was installed in my Acer C720 failed after few weeks of lite use (running Linux, no SWAP or disk I O hungry apps except browser (Chromium) cache).After reading about other failing MyDigitalSSD drives, the fact that I would need to pay shipping fees again (international, customs), the price drop of these M.2 drives (for 128GB from over 100$ to ~60$) and the fact I lost data which cost me time and money, I decided it would be wiser to throw this drive to the trash and get another brand as asking for RMA would get me the same model which probably (see other users' reviews) will fail again."
_
"I've run into cases as well saving large files started failing so I had to run chkdsk and rebuild the cache, which seems to have fixed the issue of not being able to save large files."
_
"I was thinking that it installed the drivers wrong cause of the cache - like I have them on the SSD and the windows on my HDD does not have them all."
_
"WARNING: both the Lenovo Express Cache and FN's HybriDisk are not compatible with full-disk encryption technologies like TrueCrypt 7.1a (which is not compatible with Windows 8 8.1 64 bit), or Symantec's PGP Whole Disk Encryption, and Microsoft Bitlocker software products."
_
"I wasn't satisfied with the 24 GB SSD that my laptop came with that was only used for cache."
_
"I replaced the 24Gb cache with this 120Gb SSD in my Lenovo Y510p and it works great."
_
"This software actually works quite well so far (no data corruption), and I setup a 64GB cache partition with it....and used the remainder for a local SSD drive."
_
"So far the Super Cache is working well - very speedy start up and program loading."
_
"Cache SSDs are a great gimmick, but this thing is large enough to run the show by itself."
_
"No BSODs yet though the cache corrupts occasionally but it's not the drive's fault; this happened with my previous SSD as well but is recoverable."

Installation

Installation:
"Had no problem doing the installation and am very happy I did it even though my warranty is void now."
_
"Maybe it was the Firmware, or maybe the controller chip on that 128GB is too slow or have problems controlling the two 64GB chips...or maybe it was just my windows messing up the drivers and spreading them on the SSD and the HDD ...or the SSD having problems installing them on the HDD...I dunno...was too annoyed to make any tests on that one."
_
"Than I decided my laptop has a hardware problem with the sound card - the sound was getting worse and worse....ANDin that moment I got a watchdog error on my fresh windows 8.1 installation with a freeze."
_
"The installation process isn't much fun since HP decided to place the drive underneath the motherboard, but installation was a simple, if lengthy, process."
_
"Installation is dead simple, as discussed in other reviews above."
_
"awesome drive, 128G in 22by42mm, here is the problem, windows 8 will not recognize it, even the installation disc."
_
"No problems installing."
_
"Installing the software was also easy and the instructions were clear."
_
"Installation is easy, although you do have to break the seal."
_
"I bought this SSD for my Acer C720, installation went fine, SSD is quick and reliable so far."
_
"Installation was pretty easy, I think it took all of 10 minutes even doing the restore of the ChromeOS."
