Pros:

Installed this unit on a system using a 4yr old processor AMD X2 6000 w/2GB memory and the difference was staggering. Boot times in Windows 7 Pro went from 1.5min down to 20 seconds. Applications are snappy. Used Acronis 2010 after formatting drive to clone as per Acronis forum recommendations. Ran Intels SSD Toolbox for final optimizations.

Cons:

None, for the money this is the single best upgrade anyone can do to take an older system and boost performance. It is recommended though that its used on an SSD aware OS such as Windows 7. Make sure to properly format so that the drive is optimized and use the Intel Toolbox to schedule maintenance to keep drive running at peak performance.

Other Thoughts:

Intels SSD's offer better random access and greater reliability then the others on the market at this time. Random access is more important than raw throughput for use as an OS drive. The difference is measurable. This older PC is now booting twice as fast as my quad core system. This shows what a bottleneck disk access is on modern systems and the great benefit you can receive by reducing that bottle neck.
