Summary: For a noticeable performance boost, I recommend sticking with an Intel motherboard that supports SSD cache with its chipset, or get a third party PCIe card that supports HyperDuo.
Pros: The drive itself seems fine, if you're looking for something with low capacity. But I'm not paying for just the drive...
Cons: The ReadyCache software really feels useless. Maybe I don't see it because I already have a RAID-5 setup, but I was hoping for some performance boost. It's just cutting off a second or two on load times, if anything. Drivers load after boot, so there's little to no reduction in boot time. Cache t...
At times very fast, but most of the time a huge slowdown. Flushes cache 2 or 4 times a day. Huge slow down.

Summary: Piece of junk. I bought this months ago, it works for about a day, then resets to 0.07 used, losing all its cached sectors. Sometimes it resets 2 or three times a day. Their forum is full of complaints about this. Lots of people having this problem same .
Summary: Good buy if you want to give your mechanical hard drives a little pep without the hassle of setting up a caching hard drive manually.
Pros: Does its jobs well as a caching drive and installation of the hardware and software is a breeze
Cons: Wish the software was more customizable and able to allocate the cache to specific hard drives like ROMEX's Primo Cache software allows. You can use it with third party software but why not include it in this one?
Summary: I initially bought one of these to replace my Kingston 64Gb SSD that only lasted a year. Since then, I have bought 3 more of these in the past few years with no problems or failures. These are perfect for your operating system + a few games to live on, or for a small server.
Summary: If you are a gamer or power user this is not for you if you run lots of HDD intensive programs because it will fill up the cache then dump it all over and over and the benefits are lost. if you politely check email and edit word documents for your sunday book club then this will be a good upgrade.
Pros: It is cheap, easy to install and boosts performance when it actually works correctly..................(see "cons")
Cons: but most of the time it crashes/freezes your computer or whatever game you are playing. it takes awhile to fill up the cache for a boost but if it gets too full like past 26gb it RESETS and clears the cache. if you restart the machine, you lose the cache. if the UI decides it was not installed co...
Summary: I wasn't sure about buying this originally but I've just ordered 2 more for a couple of HTPCs. The first one I bought was for a computer I built a few years ago on the cheap. Its mainly just an email and browse the web PC but it was getting really sluggish. My options were to rebuild...
Summary: If SanDisk figures out how to fix this caching software, it's a great product. At the moment, though, it's current software causes it to not work at all. I wouldn't recommend it for Windows 7 at the moment, but apparently it works fine for Windows 8 and 8.1!
Pros: It's a great caching SSD when it works. It increased my boot times dramatically from 30 seconds to 1 minute, down to under 10 seconds. Desktop startup time is much faster as well. The GUI is also simple to understand, and simple to use. 32 Gbs of space is enough for Windows to boot, but read my c...
Cons: If you go to the forums for this product on SanDisk's community website, you'll see that it has problems on Windows 7. I can attest to that. When trying to use the full 32 Gb partition to cache on, the cache will randomly reset, and cause Windows 7 to boot -slower-. This seems to be when the part...
