Pros: Speeds are as advertised. Fast boot times. Replaced Intel 330 series SATA II 180GB SSD. SATA III makes difference, boot times changed from 14 seconds to 9 seconds.
Cons: Acronis 2014 software didn't work for me. I had some issues with partitions and it doesn't automatically fixes them. Not worth removing an egg though. Used CloneZilla instead. Worked.
Other Thoughts: Running on:
i7-4770k @ 4.1GHZ cooled by Corsair H55 Quiet cooling
Gigabyte Z87N-WIFI rev 1.0
8GB Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600MHz
Intel 330 180GB cloned to Crucial MX100 512GB
Seagate 1TB SSHD
ASUS GTX 780 Ti
P.S. H55 is very quiet and keeps cpu under 70C under full load at 4.1GHz. At 4.4GHz - at around 89C-92C under full load. Used Arctic MX-4 thermal paste instead of pre-pasted one.
Pros: Faster than 802.11N
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: Replaced my Intel Centrino N2230 on Gigabyte Z87n- wifi motherboard. My router (netgear N600) is located behind 3 concrete walls about 50m away. My signal was boosted from -82dbm to -35dbm (used Chanalyzer to determine the signal strength). Very happy with the results and also it works when building hackintosh using the board.READ FULL REVIEW
