Cons: Plastic, one port broke
Other Thoughts: Once you put it in one system, forget about reusing it somewhere else. Threads are already broken and you will not be able to securely mount it in another system because body is cheap soft plastic.
SATA Ports are made out of the same cheap soft plastic and if you use cable with locks, it will break it.
You need to try several times to fit a tray into a slot hoping you will not break SATA connectors. I would not even put it in simple HTPC because it is not very reliable with ports could go down faster then SSD itself. Better go with $50-60 enclosure. I have 3 of more expensive once and they are great. Tried this one and now it is in the trashcan.
Other Thoughts: I have server where I have MX500 and MX100 in 2 RAID 1 configuration. MX500 after a year of heavy use (Database) still performs at 200 MB/s sequential write, while MX100 in another RAID 1 setup degraded within a week from 200 MB/s to 30 MB/s. Waste if money. Cheap pays twice, as people say.READ FULL REVIEW

Other Thoughts: Using it in Mirror RAID and first couple of weeks performance was great. Now sequential write is 31MB/s. Initially it was about 200 MB/sREAD FULL REVIEW
