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: I replaced the HDD with this SSD in my very old IBM ThinkPad 600E. I then installed Debian Linux 7.1 (from the a DVD) and everything booted right up and is very quick. Very happy with this upgrade. Very fast shipping!
Summary: I have an older PC that's used for a weekly automation task. It had an older 20G IDE drive, which was beginning to show errors on some diagnostics. Since this task must run--and run unattended, I decided to switch to an SSD drive and eliminate all moving parts in the disk subsystem.
