Pros: This drive offered quick boot up with Windows 7. Makes no noise and had plenty of room for my needs.
Cons: This solid state drive failed for me after about 4 months. Worked fine in the morning but then by noon my BIOS did not see it any more. I wasn't expecting it to fail and so soon out of the box. I currently have an RMA in with Corsair to return the drive and hopefully get it replaced.
Pros: It had good specs and was fairly well rated.
Cons: Meant to serve as a secondary drive... Showed up on initial boot, then disappeared on next. I thought it was the Intel Rapid Storage drive at first, tried both Windows 7 and Windows 8, alt cables to no effect. Turned out to be the drive itself, could keep present to test but system eventually started booting to check disk, and the drive had only been formatted never used or accessed.
Pros: The drive is relatively affordable for an SSD and performs quite well.
Cons: The high pitched whine produced by the drive, especially during heavy throughput, is quite irritating. It's not particularly loud with the case closed, but it's a pitch that really grabs your attention.
