Pros: It has alot of storage capacity. It made my xp pro computer snappier. It's supposed to be really fast. It is quiet. Fast shipping. Price/value and price/GB ratios are very good. Sata cable increases both airflow and organization.
Cons: None so far. It's not as fast as people make it seem but see other thoughts.
Other Thoughts: I used acronis to clone my old 80GB boot drive to this one and expanded the partition to 200GB (the rest is my d drive), someone here said that the first 200GB are the fastest. I took turns booting from each drive with a stopwatch. Speed increase on average was only 3 seconds! This may be different with a fresh install w/ programs instead of a clone. There is a larger speed increase, about 45 seconds, in the time it takes the system to become FULLY booted and useable. Thats a little harder to determine though. The files inside of my folders show up instantly now instead of 1-2 seconds. Games load a little faster. FPS went up by 3 on average, I guess this has more to do with the SATA controller's vs. the IDE's controller's cpu/memory usage than the faster drive. The bottom line is I would have payed this price for a drive this size that was the same speed as my old one.
