5 out of 5 eggsFast and reliable

Pros: Fast and stable for over a year. Had no issues.

Cons: SSDs are still expensive

Other Thoughts: I recommend newer models at this point but this drive has served me well.

5 out of 5 eggsYou cant go wrong with Intel

Pros: Yeah, there are faster SSD's out there -- but this SSD is plenty fast and it has something the other dont -- the Quality and Reliability of Intel.

I'm a knowledge worker and a part time gamer -- I needed something both fast and reliable, so the Intel SSD was a no brainer for me.

Cons: None!

5 out of 5 eggsIntel SSD Rocks!

Pros: Fast, very fast, and extremely fast!
I can't believe how fast my MacBook Pro is now. It boots OS-10.6 in less then 25 seconds, and half of that time is on POST! This may be a more costly upgrade, but worth every penny. You will notice the performance immediately, and everything is improved. MS office, Web browsers, mail, iPhoto, iTunes all load almost instantly.
Heres what it offers:
Blindly fast speed for all apps.
Less weight
No moving parts, less MTBFs
Less heat
More battery life...
You simply can't beat Intel SSD... "My SSD ROCKS"

Cons: The only one is cost and that will keep dropping.
The price has almost dropped 100 dollars in the past two months.
The CON would be migrating your OS to the new drive. If you have a MAC and time machine this is a non issue, and worked great.
The price has almost dropped 100 dollars in the past two months.

Other Thoughts: I plan to have an Intel SSDs in all my work and personal machines within the next year. And will not buy a new machine again without a SSD.
The performance increase is simply to big to ignore and not have.
I think all SSDs are created equal, I think Intel has better algorithms to handle different file formats and different types of reads and writes. And from what I have seen so far, I would have no other reason to look elsewhere.

5 out of 5 eggsMacBook Pro became a monster

Pros: I had an already blazing fast MacBook Pro 17" 3.06Ghz Core Duo with 8Gb RAM and 7200rpm HD. After installing this, I won't need another computer for many years to come. I record 16 channels of sound using Logic Pro and haven't had any problems before, and it was already fast but now... WOW... loading the audio files and bouncing mixes is stupid fast. The fans turn on now to cool down the CPU, not the HD.
Boot times now are at ridiculous 18 seconds after a few days. (OS-X takes a few boots to keep tabs on user preferences after a full time machine restore or clean install).

Cons: Size. Needs to have at least 500Gb for audio applications. Otherwise, no cons but the steep price.

Other Thoughts: Firmware upgrade a must before anything else. A fresh install of Mac OS-X isn't necessary if you have a time machine backup. Doing a fresh OS-X install is a sure way to have it blazing fast after a few days of use with all the OS upgrades. Just awesome... I almost never use my PC anymore.

5 out of 5 eggsSilent. Deadly

Pros: Fast, silent, shock resistant. The difference is shocking - apps start up in no time. Replace a laptop HDD and improve battery live.

Cons: It's expensive, but so worth it. Stick it in an old laptop and extend the life for a year or two.

Other Thoughts: It came with a plastic grommet that extends the height to 9mm or so, but you can remove that if your space needs are tight.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and reliable

Pros: Fast. Recognized by Windows 7 as SSD. Quiet, low power, little heat.

Cons: Cost.

Other Thoughts: Best upgrade for speeding up a computer. Has speeded up Windows 7 boot a lot (boot screen animation doesn't have time to finish *smile*). Everything is much faster, although my internet connection isn't speeded up *smile*. Intel SSD Toolbox works well, can monitor the SSD condition, and manually run the wear-leveling tool. Although I can tell that Windows 7 is issuing TRIM commands, since the manual tool always runs very quickly. No problems, just works.

5 out of 5 eggsFlawless

Pros: Faster than any HDD as a system drive, little to no heat generated . . . did I mention it's fast?

Cons: Cost of coarse. The Intel 'SSD Toolkit' is of questionable use if the SSD is your system drive (see other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: After about a month, the Intel SSD Toolkit stopped recognizing the drive, yet I didn't experience any system issues. I've since upgraded to Diskeeper 2010 Pro with 'HyperFast' technology; the 'HyperFast' feature apparently maximizes the TRIM function of Windows 7 (I'm using the 64 bit Pro version). I've been running it now for about a month and still no issues with my system what so ever (it is also managing over 3TBs over four HDDs).
