Summary: Ok, I'm conflicted, hard to give it 5 stars when I'm not able to appreciate it properly. I have this on my SATA 3, and my C drive is on SATA 2. But for some reason, the other hard drive on my other SATA 3 is constantly being looked at to boot from, despite the bios showing the order to boot from.
Summary: I purchased mine used on eBay. Normally this is a problem unless the previous owner uninstalled the dataplex software before removing the drive because there is a product key that must be released before it can be put in another system.
Pros: This ssd cache was very easy to install and very obvious system speeds were seen after third reboot. It's a nice idea to not have to buy a new hdd or ssd and image your system, save money and get get significant speed increases for minimum cost.
Cons: I very much want to avoid the known hassles of system crashes, so I will be buying a pure sine wave ups. Some extra cost for security, but overall I think it's worth it.

Summary: WEI scored it at 5.9 until I upped my ram from 1333- 1600.WEI then gave it a 6.3. Windows only tests transfer speeds tho.
Pros: The speed increase is fantastic! During install, I ran into problems with my PC that I didn't know were present. First I get an error message installing the software (msi.exe) which wound up pointing to missing windows system files(thanks OCZ tech support). Seems oxidation had reared it's ugly he...
Cons: Typing in the serial # every time something goes wrong,&, the software is for Win7 only.
Summary: My son states he notices a very big difference in games opening and loading into the maps. He really likes it alot! He says he's waiting for the new borderlands to come out to put on the rest of this drive so he can have ssd performance strictly for that.
Pros: When I saw the corsair version onsale I thought,"hmm, that's to big." I then researched other drives and found this ocz split type cache drive. Nice concept, half for one thing, half for something else. Bought it for my son who games multiple games verses my other two that stick to the same game,...
Cons: When I opened the well packaged box my first thought was, "what? No beer?" My son got me beer though.
