Pros: these drives do perform great with amd boards..i have a 240 evo and 256 840pro using asus M5A97 R2.0 boards. never have had an issue. i have been using the pro for over a year now. sequential read 1332 / sequential write 1118 / random read (IOPS) 66134 / random write (IOPS) 41257.. this is with rapid mode enabled obviously. now you probably can get better results with intel board but these numbers are just fine with me.

Cons: none what so ever!!

Other Thoughts: just updated my 840 pro today with the new firmware out this week. to the ones who have trouble updating firmware, this is what i have to do for the pro and evo..i use amd sata controller because i have tested tested and tested with better numbers..but cant update firmware using amd controller..just go in device manager, switch your controller driver back to windows standard AHCI 1.0 serial ATA controller, reboot..most of you should be able to update firmware after that..and after that i switch back to amd sata controller..

Pros: i have had this adapter over a year now with no problems. i did get the drivers from MediaTek..i disabled the 2.4 ghz. using 5 ghz only..getting 300Mbps constant. im running windows 7 64bit..ive noticed people have had trouble with windows 8..maybe MediaTek has the driver for this, just make sure you are downloading the right file.

Cons: asus drivers arent as good as MediaTek
