Summary: I bought this SSD to make it my primary, boot, Windows drive to speed up my computer. The difference in my computer's performance (boot time, application launch time, etc.) was amazing! The problem: the drive was very inconsistently recognized by my ASUS H87M PLUS motherboard.
Pros: My initial review was 5/5 back when I initially received the product. Worked fine while it worked...
