Pros:

This drive is very fast, it came with the latest firmware preinstalled, easy installation, garbage collection for those of us without TRIM support from the OS.

Cons:

A lot of instability reports especially with earlier firmware. No way to install the firmware in OS X (easiest way is to mount the drive as secondary in a Windows environment, otherwise it's Linux boot CD).

Other Thoughts:

I installed this drive in a early 2011 15" MBP and it screams. Boot times are ~10sec and everything loads instantly. I decided NOT to enable TRIM or do any of the other hacks floating around as I suspect that a lot of the reported problems are directly related to them. I did a clean install without moving over anything using Time Machine or Migration Assistant and I had no beachballs or system hangs so far.
