NO TRIM SUPPORT
Pros: Its a solid state drive with a mediocre read/write speed.
Cons: Other drives at the same price read & write nearly twice as fast as this one (drives of the same storage size).
Other Thoughts: My overall rating is based off of the price of the standard price.

Pros: In an HP DL385G2 server, SA-P400 raid, Win 2003x64 R2, I get close to the write performance (when new) of a 10K SAS drive, and about 4x the read performance of a 15K SAS drive using SQLIO. Had to format it at 63 sectors/track to get it to work. Otherwise, it's worked flawlessly. Very nice for R/O SQL database partitions. Great for the price.
Cons: Was missing the imaging software; Plextor is sending another copy. The garbage collection is mediocre; write performance drops in half or lower when it gets > 80% full.
Other Thoughts: The P400 only supports SATA I (150mb/s) speeds, so a faster SSD wouldn't necessarily improve performance.
