Pros: Decent speeds; quiet
Cons: Run warmer than my WD drive; ordered 2 of them--filled them both with media and after one day only one drive remains standing. The second drive will power up but won't transfer information--tried multiple cables/SATA ports all to no avail.
Other Thoughts: Should've known better just by looking at the rating. Gambled and it resulted in a 50% fail rate and a loss of 2TBs of media. Have bought close to a dozen WD drives and none have failed, even after use in hot and/or incredibly dusty configurations.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Much faster than my WD640 Black. Quiet..usually. Got it on sale for $120, so price wasn't bad compared to most other SSDs.
Cons: I say usually quiet because it does occasionally make a noise almost like a fork being scratched on a dinner plate. I heard it briefly during the initial WIN7 install, and again during the initial AVG scan. Again, it only happens briefly, so I didn't see the need to dock an egg. It's still much quieter than my WD1TB Green storage drive.
Other Thoughts: Bumped my WEI score up to 7.3, which still puts my primary hard disk as the bottleneck in the system.

Pros: as we speak my stock speed i7-860s idle temp is 20 degrees (ive been surfing the web and playing music for well over an hour and thats the temp im at). used it with arctic silver 5. put it on 3 days ago so i know its cured. ive also added an antec 120mm blue led fan for a push-pull setup. even with the 2 fans its still rather quiet.
Cons: sadly it didnt fit in my case with the massive side fan, but no biggie. i like this hsf so much i got rid of the side fan, and i actually think it looks better now anyways.
