My first SSD
Pros: Got this Upgrade Bundle @ $10 less that the current advertised price. Got it to install in a brand new HP desk top that I just purchased. Figured why not earley Christmas present to my wife and I. Computer and SSD came the same day. Ran new system for a couple of days and finally got the time to do the install today. Did a full back up of the HDD w/ Acronis TI 2013 and made all the recover media on a flash drive. Disconnected the 1Tb HDD installed the SSD and booted from the flash drive and did a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium ran complete install with all updates and did another back up of the SSD and then installed MS Office. Did the windows score of 7.9 w/o doing any tweaking. Before SSD it was around 5.8.
Cons: Did not use the included Acronis software as it was from 2008.
Other Thoughts: This is my first SSD install and if prices drop, I see more SSD's in the future. At less than $1 a Gig is reasonable. Came with connector cables, mounting hardware and a 2.5" enclosure and USB cable. Used this with a spare WD 320 Gb drive as an external storage device. Decided to do a fresh install. Already have ATI 2013 for imaging and backups.
