Summary: I have several of these in production and they are pretty fast for the price and have been reliable. I lost one after about 7 months, but I believe that was due to the power outages I was having when my UPS could not hold the load.
Summary: I ordered this for my Mac Mini. It uses less power, generates less heat, it's faster and much quieter than the factory Hitachi 5K250-80 80gb hard drive. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because it isn't as fast as the OCZ Agility or Vertex SSD's.
Summary: Product works great for my Mini PC. I am using it with a Intel Atom N270 motherboard just for a Music server tied to Casatunes. My music library is pulling from a QNAP TS-212 therefore this SSD is only being used for operating and Casatunes software. Works great with fast boot times.
Summary: 1. This is prior generation technology - check read/write specs. 2. Current mid/top end price for SSD is $2/GB - this is not comparable to current generation SSD so you should not pay current generation prices for it. 3.
Summary: I picked up a used one of these. Not sure how old it is, but it still works great. Faster than a 5400 rpm hard drive. Uses less power than other SSD drives, 1.0 watt active 0.3 watts idle. I'm using it in an external USB enclosure right now. WAY faster than any thumb drive I've ever used.
Summary: I am using these as OS drives on a pair of VMWare ESXi 4.1 servers. No issues. These are way larger than necessary for ESXi, but what can you do. Are they faster than the SATA drives I was using before? I don't notice a difference, honestly. They are quieter... more like silent.
