Pros:

I am totally new to the SSD world, but have been a WD Raptor fan since their inception. Now I done a few days of research before settling on this unit, one for G.Skill's reputation and second its newer technology for this line. You get a huge 64mb buffer and the new stutter free Indilinx to back this unit up! So I wanted to use my laptop for a test bed on this product, my Acer 4420 was the perfect choice for me, since I recently burned up my WD 120GB 5400rpm drive on it. Also I would like to add, the programs load up in about half the time now.

Cons:

NONE! I wanted to conduct a no nonsense test for this drive, so I reinstalled my OS on this with everything loaded 20 programs to boot and Office 2007.

OK on to the results:

OK cannot lie anymore I am sold on SSD; the results were just convincing for a sad little Acer 4420 laptop. I am itching to try the 128GB version in RAID 0 on my gaming rig now :)
