Cons: Installed in a computer that was started for one day each month. Worked fine for a year. Then we where lucky to get the drive to work for 1 to 2 minutes and then freeze. Now it is dead, with less than 100 hours on it.
Summary: Gave me 5 good years and then crapped the bed yesterday. Controller apparently died as it no longer shows upas a drive with any interface . Sort of painful since it was the OS. The 1T drive sitting next to it is still kicking along and it got most of the work.

Pros: Was one of the cheaper drives at the time
Cons: 3.5" Drive adapter is offset incorrectly, so it doesn't fit. Drive died, slowly creating I/O errors, verifiable on 4 computers with Linux and Windows, sent it in, they said they ran checkdisk and updated the firmware fine and sent it back, drive worked for about 4 hours before more I/O errors, no...

Pros: This SSD is AMAZING! It looks sharp (looks like a dark brushed aluminum case), and this thing is lightning quick. Very easy to swap out my old HDD. I'm using a Macbook 2,1 (2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 1GB DDR2 667, OS X 10.6 Snow Leapord) and this thing is amazing...i cant say it enough. Install wa...
Cons: None so far. This drive kicks A**!!!, and its only $150 for 256GB!!!
Summary: Worked great out of the box. I bought two of these - one for a server, and one for my workstation. I can boot 5 VMs (2 AD controllers, 1 cert auth, 1 exchange, and 1 sharepoint w/SQL) all in about 90 seconds (at the same time). Not including BIOS POST, windows 8 boots up in 9 seconds.
Pros: FAST Cheapest I can find ($150 at time of purchase) Worked out of the box on two seperate systems. No firmware worries SATA II compatible Mounting hardware
