REPORT ANALYSIS AND FINAL THOUGHTS
When it comes to upgrading your computer’s disk drive, really two things should come to your mind when starting to shop around. The first being what you use your computer for, and the second being how much do you want to spend. If you are into gaming or video editing on a daily basis, then the PNY OPTIMA SSD is clearly the wrong decision for you. However, if you are making the upgrade from a hard disk drive to a solid state drive, you are going to immediately notice an increase in your computers performance. Better yet, the PNY solid state drive is not going to cost you an arm and a leg to speed up your system. PNY has covered all their bases with the OPTIMA SSD SERIES, again provided you keep in mind that this is your budget-friendly option when it comes to choosing your SSD.
A couple of things we would have liked to have seen come with the PNY OPTIMA SSD are a software toolkit, similar to ADATA’s SSD Toolbox, and maybe some more gear in the SSD’s packaging. We previously took a look the ADATA SP920, where this drive also included a 3.5″ drive bay adapter. While we are not explicitly asking for another drive bay adapter, we are merely suggesting other components that may have fit well with PNY’s direction with the OPTIMA SSD SERIES.
other than honing in on a one year warranty, it is hard to say something negative about this drive, considering the market for which it was intended. PNY has clearly pointed the OPTIMA SSD SERIES towards those who are looking to make the jump from a hard drive to a solid state drive, and this is definitely a great option to do so. It’s for this reason that we award the PNY OPTIMA SSD SERIES with The SSD Review’s Top Value Award!
