Pros:

* Inexpensive

*Smart idea

* Works very well. VERY noticeable increase in loading speeds for frequently played games and applications. I haven't seen any difference in boot times like some have stated.

* SanDisk (and/or Condusiv) has fixed their software bugs and activation process (Activation code is no longer required) and now it works like a charm.

Cons:

* "Cache Monitor" doesn't make much sense to me. I don't care though, the difference in speed is noticeable so I don't feel any need to monitor the Cache while it works.

* I doubt there's any reasonable way around it, but if your system does not shut down cleanly, the caching software will reset (erase) the cache on reboot. In a way, this is a pro as well since they are obviously thinking about data integrity.

Other Thoughts:

I wrote a bad review, "Is it doing anything?" some time ago, giving a mere 2 eggs.

I am re-reviewing now since they fixed the software bugs that were making the hardware almost worthless to me.

Now that I have seen this drive increasing load speeds, it is clear that the software wasn't doing it's job at all when I had written the other review. All fixed now and the difference is quite obvious.

Good job to SanDisk - It seems they were listening and now I'm a very happy customer. I would definitely recommend this drive to anyone who is using mechanical hard drives.
