Attention!


Huge base of SSD reviews
Information required to select SSD
    To select SSD you need to know:
  • Motherboard and processor model
  • Desired Drive Size
  • Desired Drive Form Factor
  • Purchase budget
  • The operating system to be installed on the SSD
  • Shop \ city for orientation in prices and assortment

Test flash memory SSD program H2testw
H2testw- a tool for the detection of faulty memory cells of removable data storage module, which has become the standard for verification of the real volume USB-flash drives and SD-card. Is also used to check the broken sectors on the hard drive, but with a twist, which is told below. Test flash drives or HDD can be carried out in an environment of any modern operating system from the software giant.
Instructions and description of the program H2testw
H2testw - it is a small but very useful program to test the 'quality' and speed characteristics of any type of flash drives. H2testw essence of the program of work is to ensure that she is able to write a test file to Your flash drive, and then read it. At the same time recorded writing and reading with this drive. In addition, if in the process of writing or reading data loss is detected or an error, the program will notify you about it. This utility can provide information about what is the volume of the test drive, how much MB is damaged and how much is in working condition. About the algorithm work, I write below, as well as give transcript to the test results.

How to work with the English version of the program:
Download the archive and run the h2testw.exe file, then select the language “English” (or “Russian” if you downloaded the Russian version, but more about it later).
Next, select the test drive “Select target” and go to the “Data volume” item.
Here we select “all available space” - in order to test the entire drive in whole or “endless veryfy” and indicate the size of the recorded file in order to test the drive partially.
Then press “Write + Verify” to start the test of writing and reading, and if the flash drive has already been tested and there is a file, only “Verify” will be lit, which will perform the read operation and verify the integrity of the previously recorded file.
Next, an information window appears, in which we see general information about how to test the drive. We are shown the average write / read speed, the time until the end of the operation, and the overall progress bar.
At the end of the operation, we can get the following results:
Test finished without errors.
You can now delete the test files * .h2w or verify again.
Writing speed: 5.05 MByte / s
Reading speed: 11.4 MByte / s
H2testw v1.4
This result indicates that the test was successful. The average write speed to disk = 5.05 MByte / s, average read speed = 11.4 MByte / s.

Bad test result:
The media is likely to be defective.
1.8 GByte OK (3954734 sectors)
5.8 GByte DATA LOST (12240850 sectors)
Details: 2.9 GByte overwritten (6240208 sectors)
0 KByte slightly changed (2.8 GByte corrupted (6000642 sectors)
8 KByte aliased memory (16 sectors)
First error at offset: 0? 0000000000003830
Expected: 0? 358d089906064530
Found: 0? 158d089906064530
H2testw version 1.3
Writing speed: 2.53 MByte / s
Reading speed: 6.51 MByte / s
H2testw v1.4
Now we see that when testing a drive with a capacity of 8 GB, errors were found, of which only 1.8 GB is available for normal recording (1.8 GByte OK), and the remaining 5.8 GB (5.8 GByte DATA LOST) cannot be used, since memory is corrupted. The average speed for this storage medium = 2.53 MByte / s, the average read speed = 6.51 MByte / s

Another bad test result:
The media is likely to be defective.
0 KByte OK (0 sectors)
3.8 GByte DATA LOST (8030208 sectors)
Details: 327.7 MByte overwritten (671296 sectors)
0 KByte slightly changed (<8 bit / sector, 0 sectors)
3.5 GByte corrupted (7358912 sectors)
327.7 MByte aliased memory (671296 sectors)
First error at offset: 0x0000000000000000
Expected: 0x0000000000000000
Found: 0x000000000ffff000
H2testw version 1.3
Writing speed: 3.19 MByte / s
Reading speed: 0.99 MByte / s
H2testw v1.4
In this test result, it is written that this flash drive is not suitable for use, since it has an O KB of “living space” (0 KByte OK (0 sectors)) from a volume of 3.8 Gb.

Hey. I want to put a SSD for the system, such config:
Fee Gigabyte LGA1155 GA-H77N H61
Percent of Intel G2120 3.1 GHz LGA1155, will be changed to i3 or i5.

Eyes fell upon:
250 GB SSD-drive WD Blue [WDS250G2B0A] or
240GB SSD-drive Crucial BX500 [CT240BX500SSD1]
240GB SSD-drive WD Green [WDS240G2G0A]

Anyone can take? From reading I realized that Blue is steeper will be: D

Good evening!
I want to buy to replace your old SSD PLEXTOR PX-128M6S new. Chosen here such:
https: //www.citilink.r...ks/hdd/ssd_in/1199794/
https: //www.citilink.r...ks/hdd/ssd_in/1160147/
Which one is better to take?

And what happened to the old plekstorom? How many worked? And if you normally showed himself, why now do not take something from plektora or Samsung for instance?
While those that you took off, both good.

G2120 3.1 GHz LGA1155, will be changed to i3 or i5.

And why not XEON-v2? -http: //www.cpu-upgrade...7N-WIFI (rev._1.0) .html- "pulls" already E3-1290 v2, 3.7 GHz.

good day!
ask for help, solutions can not be found for a few months and do not know which side to approach.

when you install everything was great, soared computer. rate cost, but it was enough ~ 500 / 450MB / s
two months later, the computer has become noticeably slow down, it was the same when checking kristaldiskmark skorocti changed significantly: ~ 370 / 47Mb / s!
I thought some problem with the installation system, etc. reset all tchatelno checked everything again soared to skorotsyami ~ 500 / 450MB / s
but after about 2mesyatsa situation repeated itself - the rate has fallen to the same level of ~ 370 / 47Mb / s!
I sit here and think which side to approach the problem?
trim enabled, ahci driver
good condition. 395chasov operating time, no reassigned sectors of space 54%, mbr, win10x64

Please help, I will be grateful for at least some idea, thanks!

Well, of course, filled with SSc, the test you spend out of a running system. All the conditions for a significant reduction in performance marks meter.

Flash is no quality, which has got the firmware, team and even on 2258xt ... nothing good from such devices simply do not expect, if you will fall very rare instance of a brake but without any obvious errors.

Yes, three days ago, after a brief power outage, the UPS is also not helped, dead at the most inopportune time, the computer passed out, and when you turn hung on "preparing disaster recovery", then passed diagnostics, correction of errors, but nothing helped, the system is not loaded, no dancing in that day did not help in the SSD BIOS could not see the next day I was about to use the Recovery, but the first time it has not turned to run from a USB drive, and so far downloaded another assembly, everything suddenly booted and worked fine. As it was then suggested, it was necessary to wait a little more enabled computer. Looked program HDTunePro smart, there were these lines:
HD Tune Pro: PLEXTOR PX-128M6S Health
ID Current Worst ThresholdData Status
(01) Raw Read Error Rate 100 100 0 0 ok
(05) Retired Block Count 100 100 0 1,179,648 attention

(C4) Reallocated Event Count 100 100 0144 warning

Health Status: warning
In general, I decided in any case to take a new SSD
PLEXTOR worked for about 8 years.
In general, here are the pies ... :)

Hello. You need to update your laptop msi gl72m rdx
Initially in the notebook installed hdd. There was a question about buying and installing the SSD. The model is not very popular, he took out of pure dos, therefore, could not find the exact disk imaging on the motherboard. If RAM is clear what to buy, in the case of zhestyakom I'm confused. M 2, which has the m, pci, form factor .. Comp warranty, but in this city there is no mci service and repair said come with spare parts, we have set. What zhestyak still buy?

And then you choose the drive from Baracuda and Intel) Although the right here is your business, but too long you have worked plekstor. How many hours of operation were not you remember? And according to how much reading and writing?)

Well, I am far from this theme (SSD), so that after reading the internet and asked around, I saw that basically recommended mainly Baracuda, Intel 545s, more Crucial MX500, and of WD blue. So I chose intel ordered in Citylink at an affordable price.
And plekstoru, that's what diskinfo shows true total time lying seems to me, just 106 days. I have it in this complex set in 2014, and before that he worked more in a monoblock.

Good day. I want to replace the HDD in the system on the SSD, 1TB volume pick up. Drive at the game and for the storage of all garbage by type series, or some other non-critical materials.
have long eye of the options are on the BX500, though they have 2 variations - 960GB and 1TB, but I understand the only difference is the guarantee of 3 and 5 years respectively.
Tell me, please, can have something more interesting for an amount up to 9000r?
Volgograd, Citylink / CSN / Onlayntreyd (in priority because of the bonuses) / Fotosklad, etc., are not very much like to order from somewhere far on the type of Regard, etc.
