Pros: Very fast sequential transfers. Not as fast as stated in specs but respectable. Mid to high 300's read, Mid 200's write.
Cons: Slower than expected 4K transfers. I have been seeing speeds around 20-30 read and 30-40 write. For 4K-64Thrd transfers I should see the read speeds go up something like 8-10x with AHCI enabled but I only see them go up to the mid 60's.
Scores about 300 in AS SSD Benchmark. Not competitive for this class of drive.
Other Thoughts: I am disappointed in the overall performance of the drive. While the sustained transfer is good, most drive operations consist of small random concurrent operations.
I have done everything I can to optimize system and verify that I am using the latest drivers with AHCI enabled.
I hope that in the future there is a firmware update that will improve the performance of this drive. I have not, however, been able to find any reference to firmware updates, firmware updating utilities, or any other drive utilities on the Plextor site.
Pros: A fair bit faster than the Seagate 7200RPM 100GB SATA drive I replaced. Very quiet.

Pros: Good stable memory. And that is saying something for any memory used on an ASUS Striker Extreme Motherboard which is particular about the kind of memory it likes. SLI Enabled. Great Price, Just ordered another set.
Cons: Tall. Not a problem for me but I could see that it could cause a problem some installations.
Other Thoughts: On another note. OCZ did a good job of fitting a memory stick with a heat pipe and external heat sink into the width of single memory slot.READ FULL REVIEW
