Pure excellence...
July 21st 2009 Verified user
After having used a traditional HD and now migrating to a proper SSD drive, my "computer life" will never be the same. This is just pure excellence...., and the Falcon drive is up there.

Awesome first SSD
July 6th 2009 Verified user
This was my first SSD buy and boy am I glad I did my research. One simply must opt for a drive with an Indilinx Barefoot controller or Samsung. If the latter their is no TRIM support, a feature which most shoppers forget about.

Performance in my experience has simply been awesome, topping the 2x 300GB WD VelociRaptors I had in RAID 0 on an Intel on board ICH10R controller.

I have a blog about this drive on the following forums:

Vertex beater!

Great service from MemoryC. I'm using this Falcon as an OS drive, with 2 750gb samsung F1's for storage. Can't fault it, runs a lot lot faster than rotational HD's.

Am about to order another for my notebook!

Read the reviews on this drive, they speak for themselves.

I do not make reviews but it has to be said. This product is the best, perfect thing for my laptop. It really makes the difference, not RAM or CPU but Falcon!!! Not cheap but worth every penny. If you have the money you have to by it, if you don't then earn it and then by it!!!!!

PS

Believe In Unbelievable

Excellent Drive
June 3rd 2009 Verified user
This is an excellent drive, exactly the same internals as the OCZ Vertex but comes with the latest firmware already on the drive. Mine is giving better than stated reads/writes 250/195mb/s. No stuttering and everything is much faster and much more responsive. Probably the best upgrade ive ever made for overall system performance!

terrific product, running smooth on windows 7. the indilinx controller is the same great chip mounted on vertex and performances are very similar. only this is cheaper.
memoryc delivers in 24h, and this is great too.

Real competitor for OCZ Vertex series, very very fast.

Real competitor for OCZ Vertex series

It uses same controller (Indilinx Barefoot) with 64 MB Cache as OCZ Vertex driver. Cache and Indilinx firmware 1370 improves the random write shuttering issue which plagued OCZ vertex drives initially had. It is cost positioned better than OCZ vertex. So when cost/GB is considered this is better than OCZ Vertex.
