Features
Fast data transfer - Up to 250 MB/s read and up to 170 MB/s write transfer rates allow your system to run faster so you can work more efficiently.

Advanced Wear-Leveling
WD's wear-leveling algorithm uses a combination of dynamic and static wear-leveling that writes data evenly over the entire drive, preventing drive wear out and lengthening drive life.

Advanced Error Correction
Enables error free data transmission by deploying advanced error correction technologies to detect and correct errors resulting from signal noise or other kinds of interference that causes data distortion.

TRIM command support (Windows 7) - Helps maintain the SSD's performance throughout its lifespan.

Native Command Queuing (NCQ)
Increases the performance of SATA drives by placing read / write commands in the optimal sequential order for the fastest execution.

Data Integrity Protection
Prevents data loss from unexpected power loss during write operations to ensure data integrity and availability.

ATA SMART Commands
Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technologies (SMART) detect and warn when an SSD needs replacement.

WD Certified

5 out of 5 eggsFAST!

Pros: Windows 7 64 index score 7.0 on an Intel I7 board. Appears to be reading and writing faster than advertised a 7.0 score is not easy to do with a single drive.

Cons: Obviously hard to find. I want 10 of them!

Other Thoughts: Why is New Egg no longer selling WD ssds?

5 out of 5 eggsStill going strong

Pros: I purchased three of these Western Digital SSD drives back in 6/2010. I bought the WD because I wanted a good hard drive company name for the reliability factor. So far the drives have not given me any problems. I’m a SSD convert. I don’t plan to buy any disk hard drives in the future. I would keep buying them even if they were not faster than a disk hard drive. They never make any noise. They never wear out. They are always cool to the touch. I never have to worry about bumping my computer accidently.

Cons: Now, if they would only get cheaper . . .

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for the the price.

Pros: It's an SSD. While it may not be the speediest one in it's class it still blows away any mechanical equivalent.

For the size and price this drive is a great value.

'Nuff said.

Cons: Price per gig is still high but that's par. "Ya makes yer choices, and ya pays yer monies." about sums it up.

Other Thoughts: What is with everyone selecting "High" for tech knowledge? Just because you've built a few PCs for friends and family and OC your rig to heck and back doesn't make you a tech genius, can you troubleshoot down to the board level? Can you surface mount an IC chip? Do you even know what a soldering iron is? Just a thought... ;)

4 out of 5 eggsVery worthy starting point--and fair warning

Pros: Performs with no glitches. The size is acceptable and the price for this size is more than acceptable in light of the speed that is gained, compared to conventional hard disc drive technology, even WD's Raptors.

Cons: really none. I only replaced this item because I wanted an ssd twice the size at least, which I found when a larger ocz ssd one day showed up on NewEgg for a price lower than I had ever seen, because of a mail-in rebate.

Other Thoughts: Do not trust yourself to the ocz mail-in rebate process. I know from experience that iti is actually a lie. I can verify this to be true to anyone interested. My rebate claim has been approved for MONTHS, and ocz fails to this day to mail it to me. I am the fool for trusting OCZ. Do not do like me. If you chose to get a better and bigger ssd than this sweet little WD one, do not get one that is marketed by OCZ. Fair warning.

5 out of 5 eggsFast, Works Flawlessly

Pros: Fast, Silent, Low power consumption

Cons: None found yet

Other Thoughts: I originally bought this for my field work laptop (Toshiba Satellite core 2 duo/centrino w/vista home premium 64) and was very pleased with the performance improvement it gave; almost quadrupling sequential read speed (227.3 MB/s) and doubling to tripling the sequential write speed (139.4 MB/s).. but the seq write speed fell off to only about 1.5x original (78.5 MB/s) due to vista not supporting TRIM and not having a working kludge to enable it.

Well this Christmas i retired that machine and got a Toshiba A660 (i3 370m, Win7Pro64), and then swapped this same drive into the new machine. Because Win7 supports TRIM, performance numbers are now back to original levels(read:221.8 MB/s, write:140.45 MB/s), so trim functionality makes a big difference.
The new machine boots in 21 seconds and shuts down in 10. I didn't benchmark this machine before the swap, but I know it is a lot faster.
Love it. Love SSDs

5 out of 5 eggsS W E E T

Pros: Worked out of the box. Placed it in my notebook... system rating went up 2 points! Boots fast, very responsive, breathed new life into a notebook I was ready to give up on.

Cons: Can't tell if it is running as fast as it could. It is running so fast that I do not care anyways.

Other Thoughts: Worry if it will break. Oh well, who cares, it has a long warranty period.

5 out of 5 eggsBest SSD for performance and price

Pros: It is an SSD, what else can be said. Fast, low-power usage, light, soild construstion. 128GB to support most all OS, programs, gaming needs. Is definitely worth every penny.

Cons: Needs Windows 7 with Trim command support to bring the full potential of the SSD.

Other Thoughts: 128GB supports all needs for laptop usage, but will need an HDD support for recorded tv. Suggest using the SSD for the OS and programs. But use an second HDD for gaming and recorded tv. Also, this SSD is built by an trusted name in storage solutions.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great on Linux

Pros: This drive is fast. Boot times are cut almost in half. Applications launch before your finger releases the button on the mouse. Works with Linux.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I installed this drive on a new system build for my PCLinuxOS box. The drive was detected and easily formatted with the tools provided by PCLinuxOS. Installation was fast and painless. Now I have a very fast performing Linux system.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat upgrade for laptop

Pros: Much faster than any disk-based hard drive you'll put in your laptop (and probably desktop too). I've had no issues under Win 7. My laptop now boots in 14 seconds, vs 30 seconds with the 500GB 7200 RPM drive that came with it.

Cons: Capacity is still less than a traditional hard drive.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid SSD

Pros: It's solid, runs fast, and that's about it coming from a former 7200RPM HDD user.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I don't think I fully realized just how fast 128 GB fills up when you use Steam. I would consider a secondary SSD for games if you've got the money, or just putting them on an HDD, but either way you'll want to relocate data and such off the drive and onto a secondary drive.
