Pros: I bought this for my first home-built PC that is attached to my tv and runs Windows Media center. It is plenty powerful for what I do and it is low enough power that even though the fan on the tower wasn't working, between the fan on the CPU and the fan on the power supply, plus all the vents, it is okay.
Cons: Not really a con, but I accidentally had a couple of instances of IE running (doing nothing) while running Media Center and the performance got bad. Just can't run too much, it seems (although not sure why IE was eating any of the CPU)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: OCZ Vertex 3 2.5" 60GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) VTX3-25SAT3-60G
Pros: This was the fist machine I had built and I am using it for my media PC so I not everything is super high-end, but I wanted start and reboot to be super fast (if I am in the middle of a show and something happens and I have to reboot ... don't want to miss too much :). Boot time is so fast I don't even notice. Even Windows start time (after entering my password) is super fast. I don't really do much else with this computer besides media center and occassionally browse the web, but I am very happy with the drive
Cons: No issues as of yet
Other Thoughts: 60GB is plenty big for me. I could probably install Microsoft Office also and as long as I am not storing a lot of files on the machine (or store them on a different drive), this is plenty big for meREAD FULL REVIEW
