Great SSD for older systems
Pros: Perfect for motherboards with SATA-II controllers that run at 3.0 Gb/sec.
Cons: May run into compatability problems, but this is because the technology was not completely implemented when older boards were made. Can usually be resolved with BIOS updates.
Other Thoughts: Rognin seems to be confusing the different terms for SATA. SATA-II=3.0 GB/sec, SATA-III=6.0 GB/sec. This drive is an SATA-II drive with maximum throughput of 3.0 GB/sec. There is no reason to get an SATA-III drive if your motherboard does not support that technology, though it would work fine, and could later be connected to a board that does support it for better performance.

Pros: When it came out and Sata 3.0 (cause saying Sata II is wrong!) hadn't hit the shelves, this thing was a beast. I read on all the corsair forums and others about the hibernation problems. I've had this thing for a couple months now and it works great.
Cons: Price, and outdated tech with the new Sata 3.0's out at around the same prices.
Other Thoughts: Get a Sata 3.0 SSD.

Pros: Fast, but it's an SSD, so what do you expect?
Cons: Motherboard had a few issues with recognizing it as a boot device, but I'm holding Windows as the main culprit on that one.
