4 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Fast - even in the real word
Reliable - No errors
No returns on any of the 11 I bought (yes - 11)

Cons: Write speed deterioration after 4 months - fixed with latest v0007 firmware patch. (apparently common for SSDs)
Price!! But you get a lot more speed for the extra money
Knowledge required to configure OS for optimal use (SSD general)
Doesn't work with all OS's (SSD general)

Other Thoughts: I bought 11 for some of the developers at work. Some have it in their laptops (bit of a waste) and others in their desktops. Our build speeds are 3 times faster which is a good real-world benchmark. My boot time is about 5 seconds - not that I reboot much anymore. If I was gonna buy again I might consider skipping the SATA interface for the desktops and going straight to a PCI express interface.

2 out of 5 eggsWarning: MicroSATA power connector

Pros: Supposedly a very fast drive.

Cons: Haven't been able to connect because of unexpected power connection.

Nothing else included in box at all.

Other Thoughts: Would be great to state somewhere, anywhere that these drives have a fairly rare power connector! Generally only makes them great for 1:1 replacement of laptop drives!

At the time I ordered these were cheaper and more available than the 2.5" version. Now I'll blow through that savings and more on adapters. But on the bright side Item# N82E16812200788 sounds like a real quality piece!

5 out of 5 eggsFast but Eggspensive!

Pros: Faassssst. Raid 0 array on Highpoint RocketRAID 640 controller netted 250 MB/S write and >400MB/S Read with Atto Disk Benchmark v2.46

Cons: Eggspensive!

Other Thoughts: Using Win 7x64 and have't noticed issues with slowing down. Don't know enough about TRIM or how to invoke it to know whether I need it or not.
I like the Price drop!
