Pros:

I purchased this from NewEgg. It's Fast, it really is! If you want the best upgrade for your computer, upgrade your HD. Packaged in a quality casing, looks rigid and well-made. Installing it was a breeze. It loads my Win 7 64bit to desktop with no processes loading in less then 6-7 seconds (with changes made to way computer boots of course). Everything opens instantly, I can only imagine how nice it would be to run 2 or 4 of these, but i think you lose TRIM capabilities with that (not sure). Oh and almost forgot: Windows 7 perfomance Index for HD (which was my bottleneck at 5.9 on a WD SataIII caviar black 1TB, went up to 7.0 (MAX)) so now my bottleneck is my Video at 6.9 =P

Cons:

Installation is a bit of a task, because i can assure you your case will not fit this natively. I personally took one of the sliding plastic HD bays and drilled some holes in it to match the ones on the SSD.. "professional install =)". 64 gb is minuscule and you always have to keep that in mind; bogging it down with lots of useless apps will make it decrease in performance over time. This requires more maintenance then your regular drive, but if your set on getting a dramatic performance increase, you'll have to deal with all the settings, trial and error and once its setup the way it should be, you'll be happy.

Other Thoughts:

Overall, I can't say that i feel good spending all that cash for 64 gigs. But when you can justify your expenses, or you crave performance, its worth it. Will the price drop next year by 50% ? absolutely. Would you be reading this if you wanted to wait until next year? Get it, you'll be happy, I game once in a while, never has anyone beaten my loading times, or even converting a avi. to dvd takes 5-6 mins max compared to 8-20 mins on a regular sata III 7200.
