5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

Pros: Super fast.

Cons: Requires an additional hard drive for storage.

Other Thoughts: Bought this SSD on christmas for 130$. For the price and spec's it is one of the best deals I've seen in a while. Threw this SSD into my Asus G74SX. After about 3 hours of installing a clean windows 7 and driver hunting, its running extremely smoothing. Cold booting in 20 seconds, waking from sleep in under 2 seconds. Ridiculous.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressive

Pros: Fast, Fast, and more Fast... decent price for SSD's, easy install, durable construction, fancy metal backplate with no circuitry exposed, stays cool, and braging rights! (came with a sticker that says "My SSD is faster than your HDD" lol)

Cons: None. Can't wait for SSD's to get larger in size. 1TB+ would be nice, too bad they're all $2,000 or more

Other Thoughts: This is my first SSD and it didn't disappoint! These things truely make a difference. Full system reboot in under 30 seconds (Windows8). Haven't owned it long enough to run performance tests yet, but I've noticed a considerable difference in load times in everything. Perfect solution for reducing load times and quick rendering for Gamers, Video Editors (especially if you're editing in 1080p), and Studio recording. Well worth the money if you hate waiting on computers like me.
