Cheap and fast! 8-10 seconds from shut down to password login in Windows. If you build a PC you MUST buy an SSD.
Speed is superb
Bought this little guy on a flash sale for a lot cheaper than expected.
I use this as a boot drive (C:) for Windows, and boot programs (Steam, Skype, Core Temp, Origin, Office, etc...), and with it, I'm able to go from cold shut-down, to ready to log in in less than 15 seconds on Windows 10.
Everything installed on the drive moves and loads nice and fast, and Windows 10 and the programs on it have left about 35 GB of extra space for Windows Temp files and other things still, so it seems like it will work just fine for a Windows install with some other programs.
I selected this SSD because of the capacity and price. I purchased this at MicroCenter for only $50. That's an amazing price for an SSD of that size. I only needed an SSD large enough for Windows 8.1 and some programs. After a year, I noticed that the start up isn't as fast as it used to be when I first installed it. It used to be a 10 second start up but now it's longer. Not sure if it's because of all the programs I have installed (which isn't a lot) or just age. And for this decrease in performance, I'm giving 4 stars.
