Performs very well, although not as well as some competitors.


Terrible

5 years ago.

Can't obtain new driver because their software which is the only god damn software in the world cant detect my ssd drive. Product was always inconstant and slow and now after 2 months. It has dead moments like pre-ghz processor era where you click on the windows start button and nothing happens until the 20th click when it decides to just kick back in. Honestly would give this company a 0 if I could. Update: drive started performing a little better and kinda acts like how it did when I first placed it in my pc (random deep q still all over the place usually always lower than 35%. Their driver updater still doesn't detect my drive so unless microsoft provides future drivers this can never be updated. Customer service at PNY doesn't even respond to email and I'm not about to call them and wait for an operator. I guess PNY stands for Personally Neglecting You. Last product of theirs I'll ever buy and when I get a free moment of time will contact the bbb about their products and service but I got a feeling their bbb score is already fairly low.
