Summary: Buy it -- This is nice SSD - I just took my time to review it - Because it is nice
Pros: This has been the best SSD I have used in fact it's the one 1 that is still in my system that runs 24/7 -- This drive stays clean and fast - I would definitely buy again - But then In 2010 I paid 150 for it brand new -

Summary: I really liked the drive, but within 10 months (I always keep the firmware updated) 15 bad sectors appeared! I noticed since the system started to freeze and the HDD LED was flashing. HDD Generator fixed the problem for now, I hope there won't be any further.

Pros: Fantastic speeds. Crystal Disk Mark measured ~500 MB/s sequential write, 210 MB/s sequential read even after 6 months and with the drive ~80% full. Easy installation, no issues with drive configuration, data corruption, errors, etc. Fast bootup and near instant response from my everyday use progr...
