Pros: * Read/Write values are very good and stable ( around 480MBps read and 420MBps write according to AS SSD Benchmarks).
* An overall huge improvement over an HDD
Other Thoughts: If you purchase this product, or any SSD for that matter, it is advised to either have/purchase a HDD to go along side it so you can direct your temp & cache files to it. If you have 8GB+ of RAM then you could instead make a RAMDisk and allocate about 1GB of RAM to it. The reason for relocating temp & cache to a different drive is because they are written to frequently and SSD's have a limited number of writes. Of course, even if you wrote 60GB every day, you wouldn't run out of writes for 5 years, but either way it is still a good idea, especially if your buying the smaller SSD's (so you can store your documents and pictures and whatnot on a different drive as the SSD doesn't really do anything for files that are just sitting there)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition [Online Game Code]
Pros: First off, the reason I gave this 5 stars is not because of the gameplay, but because of the handling by Newegg. I recieved the code within less than 5 minutes after my initial purchase. It's a pretty fun game so far, though I still have to get used to the controls.
Cons: I figured it would be connected to Steam, which it is, but then I had to use my Windows Live ID to save the game... I'd be happier with a local save file rather than that, but I guess it's just like that.READ FULL REVIEW
