5 out of 5 eggsVery Fast Drive!

Pros: This is my first SSD and i did ALOT of research. If you look at all the reviews, its either the top performer or in 2nd or 3rd in all most all cases. Anadtech has a great real-world performance test and that truely tells the tale.

Cons: Not much, i didnt install with AHCI the first time, so i used HDDErase and made the drive 100% factory performance before installing it again with AHCI enabled. My windows 7 score went from 7.1 to 7.8 and thats on SATA II.

Other Thoughts: Cant wait to upgrade to a SATA III board in the near futute, to think this drive can be 2x as fast is crazy!!! No BSOD, no hang-ups, easy install and ;oving how fast everything is. Incredable.
