Pros: It is an SSD, falls in the middle of SSDs for speed. Drive does come with a tray for mounting in a 3.5" slot. Good for rejuvenating older systems that support AHCI. Will work in standard SATA IDE mode, but you do lose some performance.
Cons: No software, nor any links on the website for migration software or SSD optimization software. Uninterested tech support, called to ask about where to find optimization software and was told I had to by the drive Kit. Huh!! I have purchased about 30 SSDs of various brands, Kingston is the worst if you are migrating systems.
Other Thoughts: Samsung is the only SSD that comes with both migration and optimization software, the other brands I have purchased at least had links on their website to migration software (usually Acronis, but I recommend EaseUS. It is free and works better) and some have downloadable optimization software. I purchase these drives to extend the lives of PCs for charitable organizations, so I shop price. With the time spent looking for migration and optimization software, this was no longer a good value. Should have spent and extra $10.00 for Samsung.READ FULL REVIEW

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive UV128 64GB Flash Drive Model AUV128-64G-RBE
Pros: Installs easily and the migrations software you download works flawlessly. Upgraded several Core 2 PCs with these and 2gb of ram. Upgraded to Windows 7 and 8. These refurbished PCs now perform like they had an i5 processor.
Cons: None really, It would be better to have the migrations software on a disk, but downloading was no hassle.
Other Thoughts: Perfect for a server environment where data is stored on a server. Plenty of room for apps and saved a ton of money vs buying new PCs.READ FULL REVIEW
