Pros: It is indeed very, very fast.
Cons: The controller in this hard drive is not, apparently, compatible with a lot of laptops, including my Thinkpad T61. It runs fine as long as you don't try to put the laptop to sleep, wake it up, or change the hardware profile (say, by docking or undocking it). Unfortunately, I do all of those on a regular basis, and they resulted in bluescreens and restarts as soon as I installed this drive. Putting the old drive back fixed them, so it's clearly a problem with the Corsair. I'm also not the only person to have this problem--Google for your laptop model to see if others have been affected.
Other Thoughts: At the time I purchased this, Newegg was not offering refunds (only returns/replacements, which is useless when the product itself is incompatible as designed). With that policy in mind, I'd advise being very careful about buying this drive. You could be out hundreds of dollars with no good options if it doesn't work.READ FULL REVIEW
