Pros:

Installed about 3 months ago, haven't had a single issue. This was installed to replace a mechanical drive in an existing machine running Win 7x64 (installed as an upgrade in other words, not as part of a new build). I followed an install guide that I found online that indicated to physically install the drive first and then format it using Disk Management. I did this, then installed a fresh copy of Win 7 on it, I did not use the migration software that Transcend has available for those who don't want to perform a clean install. Once the OS was installed, I made sure TRIM was enabled and made a few other tweaks (disabling virtual memory, etc.) and have not had a single problem with it.

This is a SATA III drive, but my onboard controller is only SATA II. Still, a saturated SATA II bus can really push some serious data. I haven't seen any single piece of hardware make so much of a difference in performance on any machine I've ever built, with the exception of some video card upgrades I've done for gaming purposes. It's night and day compared to the previous mechanical drive (a WD Caviar Black). Has the added benefit of being completely silent, of course.

Got a great price on it, also -- cheaper than it is now, even, 3 months later. Thanks newegg!

Cons:

Can't think of any. It works, so what more can one ask for?

Other Thoughts:

Based on this purchase, and assuming price, reviews and performance are basically comparable to the other products currently on the market, I wouldn't hesitate to buy another Transcend drive.
