Pros: They work
Cons: These drives are slow compared to many others. Really disappointing for what should be a very fast drive.
Other Thoughts: Running two in a mirror raid configuration and they are slower than my Sata II segate drives they replaced. I'm told a few other techies that these in a RAID will revert to ATA interface speeds, so this may be the issue. I have not seen confirmation but it makes sense.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This is one of the fastest SSD's on the market. It screems past the Samsung I have.
Has been operating flawlessly for over a year.
If you've been dissapointed by the other drive manufacturers, you won't be with Plextor. The are top noch!
Cons: One con is that the intial drive died and because its electroninc memory all data will always be a total loss.
RMA and had a NEW one in 3 days.
Other Thoughts: Bought the Plextor and a Samsung Pro at the same time. The Plextor simply out performs anything I've seen.
The Drive die in the first two weeks but Plextor replaced it with overnight shipping at their cost.

I too get torqued with the though of RMA a new out of the box drive, but look at it like, ok the one they are shipping has been bench tested which is more than most production line units.
Additionally, I have and will continue to tell everyone how great both the Plextor SSDs are but also mention the quality customer service they provide when you do need them.
Pros: Powering a GB Z97 BK with 8 Sata, PCI Express and Graphics card. Seems to do well.
Has more than enough connectors for the 8 Sata devices (3 HD, 3 SSD's DVD and a spare ... plus Additional USB 3.0 and Firewire cards. Getting ready to add Graphics card so will update if needed
Cons: On wake-up, sometimes it seems to try 2 or 3 times before it actually starts back up. Not sure if this is the Z97 or the PSU....READ FULL REVIEW
