Summary: Get the correct drive for the motherboard specified. Do not get a Sata2 for a Sata3 port or vice versa. This drive I have here is Sata2. My motherboard doesn't support Sata3 and up. Furthermore, check website, manual for specific SSD drives supported (list)
Pros: Very fast, and has not stopped on me yet. Using as a boot drive for windows 8.1. Soon as I turn on computer, my long in is already there (few seconds). I never get the chance to turn around and do other things. I have secondary hard drive as programs.
Cons: Small capacity, but for boot drive this is awesome (good enough).
Summary: Installed Windows fine, then intermittently would not be recognized at boot after restart, then would not get recognized whatsoever despite switching cables/sata ports. Other drives are recognized fine. While it worked I was getting 250MBs reads/writes. For a week, then died.
Summary: Good product for the price. Its a 4.8 score. But can't hold the 0.2 against it at this price.
Pros: I've had this hard drive for a few months now, made it run in raid 0 for one of my older systems and thus far it works wonderful! 463.3 mb/s read 226.5 write in raid 0. Great for systems limited by sata II.
Cons: Writes are a little slow. Latency might not be super good. But haven't checked. But except that everything is on point.
Summary: Too soon to tell how reliable it is. However it sure does reduce the boot time to say the least. You also have to remember that, with this capacity drive the OS is the only thing you can put on it. That includes the default My Documents, Downloads, Music,..etc.
