Summary: Summary, well it works great so far, but time will tell how it does over the long haul. Not a bad price considering these were expensive a few years ago. I put only my system folder and applications and one user folder on the drive. Then used symbolic links to link to a large Raid array with the rest of my data. So far it worked great.
Pros: Super quick and silent compared to 7200 rpm drives., No issues installing software wise on Mac OS X in a Mac Pro, Leopard.
Cons: What a pain in the ass it was to get the bracket to fit for a mac Pro. Unless you are good with a drill and a hammer and maybe a saw to trim down the bracket and make it fit on the mac pro bracket i would suggest finding an aftermarket bracket to make 2.5" drives fit on to the rails for Mac Pros.
Pros: I'm happy with my purchase but I'm not going to make any stupid statements about how fast it makes my PC. For anyone thinking about getting one, know this...SSDs show their worth when it comes to large task. Yes it opens most programs instantly but the difference between this and my WD Black drive, is now I don't have time to scratch for a second while waiting for Outlooks to open and download emails. On the other hand, Norton 360 runs and scans much faster on this SSD.
Cons: I've done a far amount of research but can't seem to get my write speeds anywhere near the stated specs. I've noticed that others have the same issues and even in an official review, they only reached half the stated specs for writes.
Summary: EDIT 06/19 2012 Blir allt mer ofta blåskärm nu, ca 6-8 ggr i veckan. så tänk över ditt köp lite, inte kul att till exempel ha ett arbete i Word eller sitta och spela när man får blåskärm. Ville själv se om ssd är så snabba som man sett, och faktiskt är jag nästan lite besviken då jag trodde att man skulle uppleva det som snabbare.
