Pros: These are re-branded Intel enterprise SSDs at an extreme cost savings. The performance of these drives are impressive but the real kicker is that they seem to be hyper-reliable.
Cons: No cons.
Other Thoughts: I run a total of 42 of these drives in production and local database environments with extremely IO/heavy relational db load. The brutal pounding these drives take every day is astonishing. I initially purchased our first patch of these drives based off a recommendation of a manager of a large datacenter in Chicago who deploys these drives in extremely great quantities. A definite high recommendation for applications with high-io requirements.

Pros: Great specs. Excellent tech support person. 5 eggs represents benefit of the doubt since not being able to put the drive to the use I intended I have no experience with its operation.
Cons: When I got the drive out of the sealed plastic packaging it came in I discovered on the back side a printed paper adhesive label warning that it should be connected only to a raid or raid like controller and not to an SATA port on a motherboard. I called Kingston tech support, and the person I talked to there said that the restriction is because this drive could be damaged if subjected to a trim command. He said that this problem had just been discovered and that they were working on a fix.
Other Thoughts: Newegg needs to update the product description to give a prominent warning about the restricted applicability of this drive with its firmware as of this date.
