Pros: Fast enough for me on Win7. I ordered mine on 6/17/2014, and it came with the 527ABBF0 firmware, which is apparently newer than the 525 firmware on their website.
At any rate, I just use it on a SATA II (3.0 Gb/sec) motherboard, and it is faster than the 40 GB Intel X25-V drive that it replaced. So unless you want to pay a lot more for a little more speed, I think it will do nicely.
Cons: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: I have a Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H motherboard running Win7 Pro 64-bit, and this card works fine if it is the only PCIe card in the system.
Cons: When I add two Nvidia GTX 750 Ti video cards, which I use for Folding@home, things start falling apart. After installing the drivers (I tried both 4.50 A and the newer 4.70C), Windows hangs on shutdown. Then you have to do a hardware reset, usually resulting in corruption of the disk drive. Sometimes a CHKDSK fixes it, but I have had to re-install the OS at least once.
The card might work with only one video card in the system, and it seems to have fewer problems with AMD cards. I tried it with two HD 7790s, and the problems are not as severe, but seem to still exist.
Other Thoughts: Fortunately I have two USB 3.0 headers on my motherboard, and will just use a USB 3.0 bracket for the extra ports; no more add-in cards for me.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RDRD-11004 2.5" SSD / HDD Mounting Kit for 3.5" Drive Bay
Pros: This is a nice sturdy metal mounting adapter that has nice mounting screws and fits both my SSDs and my case well.
Cons: The SSDs are recessed too far into the Rosewill mount to allow the use of right-angle cables (either power or SATA).
My other mounting adapters mount the end of the SSD flush with the mount. That is better, since then at least the bottom SSD can then use right-angle plugs.
