Pros: Fast, requires less power, no heat being generated and small sleek size which takes up a lot less space.
Cons: More expensive than a hard drive, but prices are coming down and the performance is awesome.
Other Thoughts: I can sum this SSD up in one word, WOW. I was going to buy 2 replacement hard drives to keep my RAID striped setup but decided to try one of these instead. The performance is just awesome. It use to take Windows 40 seconds or more to load (after the bios post) but now after about 7 seconds the desktop is up and ready to go. Everything loads much faster now and installing updates is a breeze. Takes up a tenth of the space my 2 hard drives took and the speed blows my previous RAID setup away. Like I use to say about the old dial-up modems; I'll never go back. I paid an extra $3 for 3 day shipping and received it in 2 days. Way to go Newegg.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works great when you finally get the drivers installed.
Cons: Nvidia driver issues. Lack of proper instructions from Nvidia.
Other Thoughts: Luckily I found some input from the EVGA forum on how to properly uninstall Nvidia drivers in Windows 7. I ended up having to reload my operating system. With no old drivers to uninstall the new drivers installed easily. Make sure to use a program like Driver Fusion to thoroughly remove any older Nvidia drivers before installing the new drivers or you are going to have driver install failures.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MSI P6N SLI Platinum LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Same as the last review.
Cons: Same as the last review.
Other Thoughts: Just thought I would give my 2 cents worth seeing how someone else got a DOA board. Like I said before, MSI must of had a bad lot run on this mb. Those were the same symptoms as my first board except that mine booted into the bios settings at first and then frozed and died. No LEDs. The only thing that was working were my fans. So far so good with the second board. I hope your second board works out A-OK for you. This was the first time I ever received something bad from MSI and I've built a few systems using their boards without any problems with them to date.READ FULL REVIEW
