Cons: The price. I remember paying $200-$250 for this SSD a couple of years ago. Posting this review on Newegg, I see that the price for this listing has not changed much since I bought it. Considering that I just recently bought another Crucial 250 GB SSD for $110 (a different product listing than thi...
