Pros: Good price for the size.
Good price the speed.
Cons: When I first decided to buy this drive I got it because of the good price and it was fast for what I am paying for. However I did not look carefully at the reviews. There are way to many people that have had failures, some after a few days others weeks or months. And average of 4 our of 5 stars. I am returning it unused and getting the Samsung 840 240 GB. The reason is it takes a long time to install a drive and transfer all files over to it. I would rather pay $40.00 more and not have to worry about loosing all my software and data so I am sending this one back unused without taking it out of the box. I already bought the Samsung SSD it will arrive in a couple days.
Other Thoughts: I gave it three stars because it is not fair to give one because I have not used it but wont miss lead others by giving it 5 either.
It is a pain in the rear to re-install an operating system and replace all my data. It is just not worth it to use a Drive that may fail as often as some of these SSD's do. so I am going with one that has a VERY good track record on reliability. If anyone wants to compete with Samsung they need to stop working on lowering there prices and make an SSD that last. Real life failure rates from what users are seeing is more important to me than advertised MTBF. Samsung quality control is why they are getting my hard earned cash. Hopefully the other manufactures out there will learn quality control is more important to a computer builder than cranking out inexpensive cheap SSD's
