OMG people cant read

Summary: The decryption clearly states it uses half the drive as cache its probably the reason this drive is discounted on amazon because people failed to read it & returned it. Which sucks because it does clearly what it state & performs great at a low price.
Summary: Bought the drive a couple of months ago but have had it sitting dormant in my laptop after reading ropey reports about dataplex (the caching software). Anyway a recent update to dataplex came out and I chanced my arm. So far, so good!
Summary: I installed the Synapse card and installed the Dataplex software as instructed. It definitely speeds up frequently used applications and video streaming. However, if your motherboard only has SATA II ports, don't bother with a PCIe card with a SATA III port unless it is a X4 or bigger.
Summary: It runs just fine. Most of the issues and bad reviews regarding this product is related to the Dataplex "DRM" software. There have been revisions since initial launch and as far as I can tell it seems quite stable on mine. But you can see where it might have been a problem in the past.
Summary: I'm a web developer and got this SDD Caching in hopes that I would be more productive as a result of faster IO on my development laptop. Before installing and using the OCZ Cache my HDD would just spin and spin.
