Pros: Cost: $90 for 120GB; Greatest bang for buck that I was able to find.
Cons: Write Speed: about 160MB/s consistently using BlackMagic for Mac; I was really expecting more from the write speed. The Manufacturer Responses I have seen on other posts about the same issue explains this, but I don't know what to think about it. In any case, I use my computer mostly/solely moderately, so other than being just a little disappointed it is not a huge deal to me; thus 4 stars. Heavy video editors might want to be wary though.
Pros: If you want a cheap SSD to replace your slow HDD's this is literally the next best thing to buying the 840s or intel's expensive SSDs. I find that this size is perfect for owning an OS while still not purchasing expensive SSD's
Cons: I haven't found any cons Supposedly the reliability isn't too great but I found it usable and without OS issues. Running benchmarks, the speed's are as fast but I purchased a refurbished drive so I'm content.
Pros: Very fast SSD card. Already came updated firmware. Uh decent price for being refurbished booted Windows 7 Ultimate on it with no problems.
Cons: It crashed on me once, although I was messing with the BIOS and certain settings and tweaking Windows 7's to the full autumn capability. it's too early to say it was the ssd I will give it a chance. So I had to reinstall the system again this time around it seemed much much better for some reason. I'm not going to tweak any settings and let's see if it works fine
Pros: Definitely fast. Boot times, when optimized, are no more than 15 seconds from power button to opening Internet Explorer. Great boot drive for SATA 3, On the lower end of $/GB as well. Sandforce gets a bad reputation for stability, but if the firmware is updated prior to installing Windows on it, it's rock solid.
Cons: Even with TRIM, the performance drops from a startup 500+MB/s to closer to 400. After installing Windows, seeing Reads at 400 and Writes at 2-300 will be commonplace. Really difficult firmware updates as well, especially if Windows is already installed. You can't update the firmware if the drive is already booting with Windows!
Superb Product, insanely fast, but it formatted to 55.6 GB only..

Summary: What can I say. I am all for this product. I recently got it from flipkart for my new build. It's insanely fast. And when I say insanely fast imagine this from Powering on the PC to Windows desktop with 15+ program in auto-start and just under 25 seconds. Yes, it's that Fast ! I love it. I don;t see myself going back to mechanical hdd after using this. Only setback I felt was though it says 60GB space you only get 55.6 GB after formatting the disk.
