- SATA III
Reasonable price, excellent price when on sale. Everything you want in a SSD, but more. When connected to an average, CPU-powered SATA3 controller card these are very fast. When connected to a motherboard with full, native SATA3 support, they are extremely fast. Extremely fast boot-up, resume from hibernation, etc.
None that are the fault of the drive.
If one is using such a drive on an external, CPU-driven controller card, understand that you'll be getting R&W speeds in the 325M-400M range. that's not the fault of the drive or the controller card, its a limitation of using a controller card on a machine that doesn't offer native support.
Used on something like an ASUS Sabertooth Z77 motherboard and you'll see the speeds that the drive is capable of.
IMHO, it is a shame that we live in a world where in order to not offend someone, newegg feels the need to reject a review because it contains three letters in a row that do not create a word, and are commonly used as an exclamation point.
