Pros:

In the immortal words of Chris Pirillo. STUPID FAST! I added 5.45 gigs of music files AND convert all of them to AAC 128kbps format in less than 10 seconds when it took 35 to 45 seconds on my 10k raptor hdd. 7.2 wei on IDE sata mode,
{{ 7.7!! wei rating after enabling ahci in windows registry }}(start, regedit, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, SYSTEM, CURRENT CONTROL SET, SERVICES, MSAHCI, rightclick on "Start" and click " modify", then put it to "0" as in the number zero. then reboot, press Delete ( or F 1, or whatever other key for your computer gets you to BIOS aka "Setup", then find the option in your settings that allow you to change the SATA mode from " ide" to "ahci", save and exit and after this automatic boot up attempt it will require one more reboot. BOOM you're done. then follow the recommended ssd tweaks. Using Microsoft AHCI drivers that the win 7 Operating System disc auto installs. I'll see later if this rating states. not sure. hence Avg Tech Knowledge. See Other Thoughts

Cons:

this ssd * unlike the 240gig model= around 1.90 or less per gig * is more than 2 bucks per usable gig. of course obviously holidays, black friday, christmas eve are your best deal shopping days 99% of the time. again nothing that anyone hasn't said. This is NOT worth knocking off eggs. It took decades to finally get ssd STORAGE drive technology cheap and good enough for the consumers.lol. good things are worth waiting for eh? MADE ME PERFORMANCE DRUNK off the speed.lol. ME LIKEY ZOOM ZOOM ME LIKEY ZOOM ZOOM!

Other Thoughts:

NEWEGG @#$%$ING ROCKS! :) ordered around 10 a.m. central time Monday morning, receive the drive today Tuesday at 2pm central time UPS no package war scars! yes i selected rush processing but still FREE SHIPPING THAT FAST!?? Yeah Im lucky they had this ssd in/near TN warehouse but either way...(toasts a Sam Adams Light to newegg). --Disable the following to ensure longest life for the ssd: Hibernation, Defragmentation, Superfetch, Indexing.
Atto benchmarks 4k write= just under 97mb/sec, 4k read=just under 86mb/sec. 64k files 261mb/sec read, 230 write. yeah alittle less than max but hey I didnt' spend over 900 bucks plus intel mobo money to get that extra 24mb/sec read and 45mb/sec write. good enough for me. Didn't need intel 980x cpu :D. my test rig on this ssd:
MSI 785gm-e51 mobo updated bios of course
Kingston Hyper X ddr3 1600mhz 6 gig ( 3 sticks at 2 gigs each) Ram
athlon IIx4 3.0 quad core cpu stock settings
MSI 512mb 256bit 8800gt ( yes i know. It's old now.lol)
