Keep the capacity. Let go of the lag.
The OCZ Synapse Series is ideal for caching applications to dynamically manage the Synapse SSD in conjunction with standard hard disk drives (HDDs), to provide users with SSD-level performance across the entire capacity of the HDD. The OCZ Synapse Series leverages the latest and most advanced hardware and software technology to deliver superior storage performance without sacrificing HDD capacity. For users craving the performance advantages of SSDs combined with the high capacities associated with HDDs, OCZ offers the first no-compromise approach to enabling high-performance and high-capacity storage for virtually any PC platform.
The OCZ Synapse Series integrates Dataplex caching software to dynamically manage the use of both SSD and HDD for superior overall storage performance. This combination creates an environment where the most frequently used "hot" data stays on the ultra-fast SSD, while the "cold" data remains on the larger capacity HDD (sold separately). Advanced caching algorithms learn user behavior and adapt storage policies to ensure optimal performance for each individual user, maximizing productivity for the most demanded programs and applications.
Synapse Series integrates seamlessly within any modern PC platform, ensuring optimal compatibility along with performance gains. (Synapse Cache FAQs: http://www.ocztechnology.com/synapse-faq)

Works as Advertised
Pros: Gives me SSD speed without having to spring for a big one..
Cons: Included 2.5" to 3.5" metal SSD adapter wouldn't take my screw-less connector rails.
Other Thoughts: Performs as advertised... Update the firmware and do your installation homework on this piece..

Good cachinfg device
Pros: This is an excellent SSD caching device that delivers near SSD speed from HDDs. The capacity (trashed in another review) of 64 GB provides excellent look ahead for 95%-99% of all disk reads for frequenty used software, slowing only when used new or rarely used software calls. The dataplex software blows Intel caching (on the Z68 & Z77 platform) out of the water. Plus it is a solution for any computer running Windows 7 or 8: not just the LGA 1155 platform.
Cons: Dataplex software limits caching to the boot disk, so you cannot use the SSD caching with other storage HDDs.
Other Thoughts: Any criticism of this drive on the grounds that it provides only 64GB of caching is technically naive. First: if the critic read the specs of the drive s/he would have seen that it uses 64 GB for caching and 64 GB for background operations. Second: the same caching technique is used by all other caching solutions to some degree. You will never get the full capacity of a caching SSD because of the need for look-ahead overhead. And caching SSDs are not storage devices in the first place. A caching SSD provides no extra storage: it only bridges and sppeds up HDD reads.
