Pros: Low heat, low energy, low cost, high speed.
Cons: Capacity, I guess, though its not shocking that a 16gb drive only comes with 16gbs so its not really a con.
Other Thoughts: I put this in my little laptop and run Fedora on it. It does the job, the laptop is much snappier with it than with the 5400 rpm drive it came with. From a dollar/capacity standpoint SSDs are "expensive" but form a dollar/speed standpoint SSDs are monumentally cheap.
I have had this for maybe 10 months and a differend SSD in my main desktop for about 2 years. Never had any sort of reliability issue with either, but always have backups like any reasonable person should.

Pros: It works. Like someone else, I am using this as the system disk for a FreeNAS setup. No hassles, plug it in and go.
Cons: No mounting bracket. This is annoying. I ended up using a motherboard standoff to mount it. Would have gladly paid a touch extra for a bracket.
Other Thoughts: Using a 2gb Sandisk Ultra II CF card.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Big storage, low cost. When these things are on sale, you'd be stupid not to buy one.
Cons: Costs money.
Other Thoughts: I bought this to supplement my 3x 1tb Seagate Barracudas in my RAID5 NAS running FreeNAS. I backed up all the data, destroyed the RAID, added this drive, rebuilt and everything seems to be smooth sailing.READ FULL REVIEW
