Pros: takes a middling performer laptop and turns it into a burner. I used the included tools to migrate from a 5400rpm 256GB drive to this 256GB SSD. Worked fine after I upgraded to the latest version. -easy to install -Easy to migrate fast as blazes
Cons: software on the included CD was out of date by a full version. The migrate tool did not work. I downloaded the latest from Samsung, and it worked fine.
Other Thoughts: I was able to play a few games that previously pegged the HD at 100% utilization continuously. Now they use about 1-2% of the SSD capabilities. Finally the CPU can be the bottleneck.
Pros: After 3 years of 24/7 run-time, the unit is still chugging away.
Cons: -The fans made bad noises 4-6 months after buying, but they either stopped working or the noise went away. Has not affected the units up-time. -not the fastest or quietest
Other Thoughts: Only now starting to think about replacing with USB 3, since the server it is plugging into is getting long in the tooth. I think if you use enterprise HDs in the unit it will treat you right.
