Pros:

After installing this drive and doing a fresh install of windows, this drive is extremely fast and is very noticeable going from a regular HDD to a SDD. I recorded and average of about 7 to 8 seconds from the post screen to the desktop.
My test bench is a Gigabyte UD3P P45, Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 @ 4.00ghz, 4GB (4x1GB) OCZ DDR2-800, Windows 7 Professional 32 bit. I used CrystalDiskMark v3.0.3 to benchmark the drive. I took an average of 3 tests. All results are in MB/s

Overall this drive passed all the speed tests based on SATAII standards.

Cons:

Packaging could have been a bit better. A larger box and some foam would have been better then a thin cardboard box.
A 2.5" to 3.5" converter could have been included along with some screws. A sata cable would have been nice also.
Half the write speed of the 256GB model.

Other Thoughts:

Sandisk isnt exactly known for their high quality SSD's but more to their memory cards. Some reviewers complained that their drives died within a few months or in less than a year. Weather or not this was just a faulty batch remains to be seen. My drive is currently working fine and hopefully it continues functioning without problems through its life span. You may wish to get the 256GB model instead since it has double the write speed along with double storage and overall better value.
