Pros: works for 1 year
Cons: I bought two of these for two different systems. They both failed just out of warranty, 14-16 months, with light usage. I'll never by a Lite-on product again.READ FULL REVIEW

Fast: I put my /, /boot, and /var partitions on the SSD, with my /home and swap on magnetic. Booting and application loading time are half of what they were:
Timing cached reads: 7492 MB in 2.00 seconds = 3749.36 MB/sec
