Cons: For those of use who also buy an SSD to decrease the weight of a laptop, be careful. This one weighs 115 grams. Many other SSDs weigh half that or less. It is not a huge deal, but may matter more to some than others.
Cons: couldn't clone my back up HDD. UEFI recognized the SSD but couldnot boot into windows from my HDD. disconnects the SSD and it boots right into it. HDD was in 1st boot priority but went into boot part of UEFI and try to override boot into HDD without success. had to reinstall my OS and some apps. not a deal breaker but I had to take off an egg for not being able to use the true image software.
Pros: I bought two of these lower capacity drives in march 2013, for use in RAID 0. I have used them in conjunction with a z77 motherboard, which finally brought native trim functionality to ssds in raid. It is now the very end of July, and i have had no problems with them so far. With a large budget, i could have chosen any 240gb or 128gb ssd on the market. I purposefully chose these over Samsung's 830 pro. I feel samsung doesnt need any more of my money as a behemoth corp...
Cons: Was hoping for around ~1k read and write, but im fine with the 830mbs in CrystalDiskMark.
