Pros:

As the title says, this drive is amazingly fast. After post, I can boot 7 Pro x64 to the desktop in about 12 seconds.

One of the coolest things for me is the ability to immediately launch programs as soon as the desktop is loaded. Chrome with 2 windows and over 40 tabs loads in around 6 seconds. Games launch faster, file transfers are amazingly speedy.

In short, this is so much faster than my previous setup (5x 500GB 7200RPM HDDs in RAID 5) it's not even funny. Went from a 5.9 to a 7.9 in Windows experience index and boosted graphics by .2

Speed aside, setup was very simple. Downloaded the drivers beforehand and loaded them on my thumbdrive and a clean install of 7 was easy and very speedy.

Cons:

Pricey, but you get what you pay for.

Twice, when I booted my computer, I received the "Hard drive not found, press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart" error. Worked fine as soon as I rebooted, but it caused me a brief moment of panic the first time. I've had the drive since 11/14/10 and it only happened twice, so I wouldn't worry about it, but it's something to keep in mind.

Other Thoughts:

Absolutely worth the price if you can afford it. I've read hundreds of SSD reviews on here that say switching to an SSD is the most noticeable upgrade you can make and after experiencing it myself I can confirm. Switching from a Core duo to a Core i7 was nowhere near as big an upgrade.
