Pros: Super fast. Read & Write speeds are ridiculous, up to 300-500mbs a sec. Copying to and from this thing. Using it as my main drive and boot up times are cut to 20-30 seconds. Works awesome with Windows 7 Ultimate. $1 per gig isn't bad considering how great this drive is. Get this drive while you can. Besides me, plenty of other people are jumping on the bandwagon because of all the fantastic reviews.
That's pretty much these reason I purchased it in the first place.
Very happy with my purchase.
Cons: Don't have one. Doesn't do anything bad I can complain about.
Other Thoughts: Worth the money. Best drive I ever purchased to date.
Get's a 7.9 rating on disk transfer rate from Windows 7 Ultimate on the Windows Experience Index which is the highest rating for a hard drive. Buy this thing knowing that this blows away the competition by far. Too many failures with the Intel SSD drives (read all the reviews and heard the Intel SSD drives have issues after 6-12 months).
Pros: Went from 2gb to 8gb with this purchase on my wife's Macbook Unibody Laptop (the aluminum one without the SD card slot) , and boy, what a big change. Everything opens quicker, boot up times are cut in 1/2. Multiple webpages and multiple applications now open up with ease. The Crucial website says this laptop only handles 4gb of RAM, they were mistaken. Did some research in the reviews on newegg and found out other people were installing this RAM in their older Macbooks, so I jumped right on this. Great choice. Happy Wife, Happy Life. Saved me from buying her a new Macbook Pro.
Bring some new life into your older model Macbook Unibody Laptop, you'll be amazed.
Cons: Absolutely not one I can think of except they don't have 16gb of ram. 8gb is max.
Other Thoughts: Buy it, you'll be a happy camper. Who knows, tomorrow this RAM will be overpriced or gone. You know when you sleep on buying things you want, they sellout or discontinue it.
Get this 8gb set while you can. I always buy Crucial. Lifetime warranty, and super stable.
Pros: Plenty of backup space. If your looking at this review I can tell you that i'm very satisfied with my purchase. I'm a person who likes to backup everything, so I purchased 2 of these. You never never know. Using my 2 3.0 USB ports from my Intel DQ77MK motherboard making a mirrored copy onto the same identical hard drive, I was getting about 60mb-70mb a sec, sometimes more. I was trying to copy the one drive to the other and realized that the both drives where on the 2.0 USB ports which I was only getting 20mb a sec.
Cons: Doesn't power off the drive when shutting down my desktop (not a big deal to me, but I figured I post to let everyone know). Wish it was 7200rpm, but the drive inside the case is only 5400rpm which isn't a big deal. Of course on all drives, smaller files will be slower to copy then the bigger files. Come out formatted on a Windows 7 Ultimate Desktop to about 3.63TB, but you we should know that.
Other Thoughts: Couldn't be happier with the purchase of 2 of these drives. If your looking for space, reliability, and a stable backup drive, definitely get yourself a couple of these, you won't be disappointed. Get them while they are still cheap.
The first one I paid, $229, a week and a 1/2 later it came down to $209. Get them while you can.
