Pros: Substantial increase in speed compared to my HDD. I've been using it for a month now and it is working flawlessly after a bit of tweaking. I bought this when it was on sale and I spent approximately $0.60 per GB. If you were waiting for the price to drop for SSDs, the introduction of the 20nm MLC flash memory is what you were waiting for.
Cons: The Intel SSD toolbox is a little picky when it comes to your motherboard. Most AMD and nForce chipsets will encounter at least some trouble with the SSD overall (particularly performance) so you'd be best to do some reading into your motherboard if you want the maximum performance. I have an nForce chipset (which does not support AHCI) and I needed to revert my driver to Microsoft's IDE controller so my computer could detect the SSD, enable TRIM and most importantly to update the firmware, otherwise the SSD toolbox would give you an error about not recognizing the SSD. After a bit of tweaking however, I got the performance (specifically random read/writes) much higher than it was when I first installed this by switching out my nForce driver. You will most likely experience marginal speeds compared to the advertised ones especially if your PC (primarily your motherboard) is not completely up-to-date. The data migration software is convenient but for the best possible performance, it is recommended that you do a fresh install on your SSD.
Other Thoughts: Great for people who just want the benefits of an SSD who can use the data migration software and be back on their PC within an hour and for those who want the maximum performance this SSD has to offer.READ FULL REVIEW
