Boot

Boot:
"I'll eventually get some diagnostic software and see if I can recover anything from my original boot drive (the Windows 7 CD Recovery tools weren't able to restore the Master Boot Record).I have used other disk-cloning tools in the past and certainly wish I had used Acronis or something similar this time."

"Unfortunately, the boot time on this was significantly slower."

Power

Power:
"Uses less power and is dead quiet."
_
"If either of these Silicon Power SSDs fails I'll be sure to update this review."
_
"Very disappointed with Silicon Power."
_
"In spite of others' issues with the drive's updated architecture and firmware, I've experienced neither performance anomalies nor difficulties updating the firmware - it seems that Silicon Power has corrected any problems with the update utility."
_
"I don't believe you will get any real service from Silicon Power if you run into any problems."
_
"Here are some highlights:- low power consumption- easy installation- fast!"
_
"This is my third drive that i purchase in 1 year and i can say that Silicon Power build excellent products."
_
"Read write speeds are as advertised (screen grabs included show tests done with a 1TB WD Blue HDD & the Silicon Power SSD in that order); there is a good chance that anyone with speed complaints are not using a SATA3 connection which will decrease stated speeds."
_
"As for the name silicon power, I'm categorising it as a good performance brand from now on."
_
"The Silicon Power 120GB SSD is an excellent drive that utilizes minimal packaging (something I prefer, though it was not frustration free)."

Speed

Speed:
"If you have an older laptop (Apple, HP, Dell or any other brand) that needs upgraded and it only has SATA I or SATA II do not spend extra $ on faster SSD drives, because you won't be able to achieve those speeds."
_
"However, I wouldn't recommend it if you require more speed and better long term reliability, for there are much better controllers available in other products for that."
_
"The read rate was nearly 470MB s and the write rate was over 150MB s. Since the majority of the time the computer will be reading data and not writing it, I'm very happy with this performance."
_
"There is nothing to complain about the performance of them."
_
"Not a well-known brand yet but quality and performance are as good as any."
_
"Read write speeds are as advertised (screen grabs included show tests done with a 1TB WD Blue HDD & the Silicon Power SSD in that order); there is a good chance that anyone with speed complaints are not using a SATA3 connection which will decrease stated speeds."
_
"These sp perform as well"
_
"Work great and fast! "
_
"Boot time is now 25.9 seconds (Including the time it took for my to type my password in) Very happy with the speed! "
_
"This works great,I just love the speed of it and the price was great."
_
"Now super happy with the performance of my machine!"
