What a difference in performance from a standard hard drive. I installed this drive in a Dell inspiron 3541 laptop that I have been using as my main computer for about 5 years now. When I first got the computer it had windows 7. I have ran windows 10 on it and Linux. I have converted totally to Linux, so I decided to see how it would perform. I will say I am more than pleased. I got the 120gb drive mainly because Linux doesn't need a huge drive to be installed onto. what used to take 30 minutes or more to full install Linux now takes 10 minutes. The price made it better.. I plan on getting the 940gb to replace the Terabytes second drive that I have in the laptop. oh I forgot to mention I had modified my laptop to have two hard drives no dvdrw drive ,only I don't watch dvd much.. I have use this drive about 3 months now. I plan on doing video editing and hopefully music production soon. This was a great buy I would recommend to anyone.

Reasonably priced way to speed up the average PC.
It works well as your standard entry level SSD to drastically speed up an older machine if you don't store a lot of large files or have a library of large games. The standard SATA connector fits almost any machine today and the drive space is adequate for 90+% of standard PC users. Anybody more serious about unlocking their PC's full potential should be looking into an NVMe drive if they can attach one to their laptop/desktop motherboard or use a cheap desktop pci-e to NVMe adapter to add it to a desktop that has an empty pci-e slot.
It is working great. Great value.
works fine, I have nothing to compare with, but I'm happy.
Fast, got it at a killer price, reliable so far
This was on sale at an unbeatable price black Friday. At first I used it as a sneakernet drive for moving files from my old machine via a USB 3 interface . Now it holds my windows swap file, and cache for my 3TB data drive. I did this to extend the life of my much more expensive NVMe boot drive, and to speed up game loading. It's too soon to rate long term reliability, but I haven't had any issues after transferring around a terabyte of data with it, and speed appears to be on par with my other SSD, though I've mostly done large reads/writes (file copies) so I'm not sure how the caching compares. The capacity is the minimum I'd use for a Windows or Linux boot drive, but it's perfect for my use, and the price was amazing.
120GB Model - Great SSD drive for Price.
Excellent SSD drive for the money. Compared to any mechanical drive, the read/write and access speeds are through the roof. Not only are these great for getting older machines back and running, if you pair this drive with a cheap USB 3.0 SATA adapter, you have a much better, faster, and affordable alternative to using standard USB thumb drives. I use mine as as external storage to carry around files with me, and having 120GB that can fit in my shirt pocket or in my laptop bag is far superior to having a super slow USB thumb drive that costs more, especially for similar capacity. If you do any soft of computer repair, you should have these hanging on your shelf ready to go for older machines. They might not store as much as mechanical drives, but if you use them as your boot drive then prepare to be blown away at how much faster they operate if its your first time going to an SSD.
Hyundai SSD hard drive
I used this to speed up my windows 10 laptop and it does seem faster. I cloned the hard drive with Aomei Backupper but make sure you write down your Windows COA ahea of cloning just in case.
Best price for the size of SSD drove my purchase and the 5yr warranty helps too.
Good drives, on sale
Bought three drives on sale, for repair job. All drives run well up to today (June 2020)
Could be great depending on your needs,DRAMLESS
Okay first thing I should note.. before buying any SSD drive check out the reviews for it online like I failed to do .. tom's hardware forums are particularly helpful for this kind of thing as are the professional tom's hardware reviews. I ended up returning this to Walmart but I should point out I am a computer "power user" who ended up going for a cheap part when I should have spent more money, i.e. this could be just fine for someone who isn't using it for say gaming like I was. Even for gaming, if this is replacing a non SSD drive (your traditional sata drive) you will absolutely see a boost in your gaming performance or even for non gaming regular day to day tasks. This SSD drive however is DRAMLESS, meaning that it lacks a certain specific technology that lets SSD drives work even faster (basically think of it as an extra storage spot that stores and releases information quickly).. this also means the SSD drive won't last as long as a non DRAMLESS drive and has a lower number of years in warranty. Also for heavy use like gaming you need to stick with at least a 240 GB or higher SSD drive. All things told to me by the kind folks at tom's hardware that I foolishly did not look into prior to buying this. I should point out as well that on sale this is very cheap so it's still a worthwhile upgrade if it's all you can afford.... check the price of recommended SSD drives carefully though (google something like "best budget pick SSD drives'), when this is not on sale you can probably spend not a lot of extra money to get a SSD drive that will be better for you in the long run.
