Opinions on this SSD

First, I'd like to know if I can use this in my desktop or not. Listed under laptop.

SanDisk is what I use in my cameras, anyone think this is a good grab for loading my OS onto?

Thanks.

You're gonna have to list the specs of your desktop, otherwise there's no way we can assure you that the drive will be compatible with your system.

SanDisk isn't as well respected as some of the other brands in regards to their SSD's. Intel, Corsair, OCZ, and Crucial are the vendors you should stick with.

An OCZ Vertex Plus is cheaper, and about the same quality.

Usually, notebooks have built it SSD reader, but you need to verify this one since you will be buying a desktop.

From my experience, only 10% of them will come pre installed with one. [img]http://######.info/cat/5-60/vbulletin-smile.gif[/img]

As long as you have an open SATA port it should work for you regardless. That said, you should inform us of the rest of your system specs so that we may be able to give you better advice for a better drive. I myself run 3 Corsair 256gb x256 SATA II, and 1 (so far) OCZ 120gb Vertex 2 SATA II SSD. I've read some bad things on the OCZ Vertex 2 series as of late though. Saying about OCZ making some major down-grades to their SSD's after all the reviews of the original drives went public and raked in a ton of customers. I've had good luck with mine but, if true, this is terrible and unforgivable business practice. I'm not saying to rule out OCZ but make sure you read some recent reviews of their SSD's before you purchase if you think an OCZ drive is the best option for you which is pretty likely as they are very reasonably priced for what is normally great speed and quality.
