Summary: I was skeptical. I kept reading and hearing about SSD failures. This one is a "solid" model. Heh.
Pros: Been using this for 9 months. I build a primary desktop every 2 to 3 years. This was my first time to build with an SSD drive. This one was highly rated, so I took the gamble. Fast boots and quick Windows 8 response makes me a happy man.
Cons: cost, but I'm sure SSD drives will drop over the next few years
Summary: I would recommend these to anyone! Wait... I have.
Pros: I love these drives. I bought 2 for Christmas and they have ran solidly. I have them in a RAID 0 config. I'm getting about 250 Mb/s, so about half of their total speed.

Cons: I can't use the Samsung Magician software with my RAID and it apparently unlocks tons of performance. I wouldn't know though.
Summary: I have heard that some people are having issues after a firmware update using the Samsung Magician software. I have not installed this software, nor have I ever done any firmware updates. I'm not sure if this applies to my 256GB drive or just the 1TB drive I've seen comments on.
Pros: Fast write, fast read. Boot speed with Win7 only: 13 sec. Boot speed with Win7, SWTOR, Office, ACAD: 16sec. I have been writing/deleting a lot more than I thought I would and the drive is still going strong.

Summary: Get one...like yesterday
Pros: I'm not super techy...I just know enough to build my own desktops. But man, this SSD is absolutely beautiful in every way. Windows starts up faster than you can snap your fingers! Okay, maybe not that fast, but it definitely cuts down on startup times and such by a lot. This thing does exactly wh...
