Pros: Pretty fast SSD, way quicker boot times than HDD
Samsung makes good products
Comes with useful software for migration and configuraion
Cons: Migration tool doesn't handle the partitioning (that I could tell)
Other Thoughts: Operation is as expected and with Newegg promotion it was a very good deal. When I moved my existing HDD to the SSD, it didn't have a provision for the fact that the HDD had two partitions (OS and storage) - I do this to make backup images of my system smaller. When migrated it just created a single partition with the boot (OS) drive contents. I had to use admin tools in W7 to do the split/partitioning - no big deal. Also there was nothing that addressed aligning the drive, but apparently it is automatic as the new drive is OK.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy to insert/remove drive
Pretty darn fast on USB3 ports
No problems for me under Win7/64
Cons: USB cable is short.
Other Thoughts: I had no problems installing a drive and getting it to be recognized and operate. At first I thought I was going to have trouble with the lid, but when a drive is in place it lines up fine. The short cable is a bit of a pain as the only USB3 ports on my desktop machine are on the rear panel. The good news is that it's a standard port (micro USB, I believe) and Newegg sells compatible longer cables.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cheaper than renting from cable company (check you local listings)
Cons: Doesn't work with Comcast voice (telephone) service.
Other Thoughts: I just had Comcast/Xfinity TV, Internet, Phone service installed. This modem can't be used for Voice service. In fact, I now know that in some areas they don't allow customer to supply equipment for internet+voice.
Obviously, I can't evaluate this product but just wanted to put it out there for others who may make the mistake that I did.
