Boot

Write

Write:
"It was running a hard disk with a low read write rate and I knew that it was the cause of most of my frustrations."
_
"-internal power protection from sudden power losses (unexpected power loss is a major source of failure for SSDs, this is well documented).CON:-way less write durability than other current models from Crucial."
_
"However, still _plenty_ of write durability for normal purposes (rating: 72 TBW, or 40GB per day for 5 years).-no SLC cache, yielding less performance than some competing models (however, still extremely fast compared to most any SSD or HDD).-only 256MB LPDDR2 for DRAM cache."
_
"** If you do not care about that, and you are sure you write less data, then you go with this it is pretty good, fast, and very high quality."
_
"I'm getting somewhere around 950MBs read 750MBs write (sequential) speeds with these in RAID 0 which is pretty much exactly the manufacturers stated specs."
_
"I don't really write many reviews but I can honestly say this is the best purchase I've ever made."
