Pros:

Fast read speeds
Relatively cheap

Cons:

It doesn't come with a 2.5" to 3.5" adapter bracket, but the description doesn't say it comes with one, so no reduction.

No rating reduction since it's clearly stated in the description:
Only 60MB/s write speed is a little slow (but still installed Win7HP in about the same time as installing it on the SATA 7200rpm hard drive)

Other Thoughts:

I bought this to replace a 500GB hard drive in my HTPC. The HTPC is connected by 1Gbps LAN to my file server for Music, Recorded TV, etc so I didn't need the 500GB. I wanted a faster boot for turning on the HTPC for use. This SSD works fantastic. I was looking for something with fast read speeds, between 20-40GB in size, and cheap. This fit the bill, and the 60MB/s write didn't bother me since the majority of what I'd doing was reading anyway.

I streamlined my Windows 7 to get rid of language files, help documents, tablet input support, and printer drivers, and a few other randoms. Overall I saved about 2GB. I've installed Power DVD 10, iMon (for my HTPC case's front display), Netflix Media Center Add-on, and all the latest updates, and still have around 10GB of space left.

Excellent drive for an HTPC, or thin client. Does exactly what it says it will do, if you read the specs, you get what it says it will do.
