Pros:

Well, that depends. You people realize it's so fast because it's RAID 0, you can just purchase two Intel 40gb SSD's and RAID them and get the same "read speeds", the write speeds will be slower, but PC's read more than they write. So, before you get to excited, just pick out two good Sata interface SSD's and RAID them and get the same results. Get some A-Data or Corsair 40gb SSD's and raid them and yield identical speeds and probably a more reliable drive.

Cons:

If one drive on this Revo drive dies, that's it.. SSD card is dead. Open and exposed SSD memory makes it more likely to get static shocks, thus killing it. Atleast with two Sata SSD drive in RAID 0, if one dies, you still have one drive to work with. The idea of a PCi-E SSD drive is nice, but the only ones really stable are the "X2" series and the cost twice as much.

Other Thoughts:

I see alot of compliants about these, whether it's DOA or incompatibilities. People just see the "read/write" speeds and go "oh wow, I want that", not realizing it's RAID yielding those speeds and two Sata SSD's would give the same results. I have two 120gb Intel X25-M SSD drives in RAID 0, my read speeds are 522 mb/sec, and write speeds of 218 mb/sec. Yeah, my writes are slower, but it's the READ speeds that you experience the most, and you can get two A-Data/Corsair/Crucial, etc.. with 260 mb/sec writes, raid them and get the same speeds as this REVO drive! I choose Intel's because they are less problematic and got great reviews.

I do not "own" one of these, just did research on them and see the complaints. After doing some research, two Sata type SSD's sound much better and are just as fast.
