Summary: I intended to buy 2 of these to put in Raid 0 for the ultimate performance. Since I'm a gamer and developer, being able to see the potential of the next level of disk IO is pretty important to me. I was up all night with these drives, and it turns out the frustration came from the fact that 1 of them was dead. Amazon is awesome on their return policy, so no hastles. Drive #3 came in the following week. Also dead. Drive #4 is on its way.

Summary: Put a couple of these in clients' HP desktops with core i5 first gens and 6 GB ddr 3 ram. Had a great pairing in the sata ii speed with the core i5-- the Windows Expereince Index came out almost perfectly balanced between the CPU and the SSD. Main thing to note about the proprietary controller on these drives is that they do some things better than intel and marvel based drives, and some things worse.
Summary: Time Owned: 6 weeks Computer Installed in: MacBook Mid 2007 (MacBook2,1) This drive installed with absolutely no issues. I am running OS X Lion. I preformed a clean install and setup Bootcamp running windows 7 Ultimate. This is the ultimate upgrade for a laptop from this time period. Just as I suspected the old spinning hard drive was the primary bottleneck slowing the system down. OSX Boot times went from 52 seconds down to 12 seconds.
