Pros: +small size +good quality cable and bag +nice LED on top
Cons: -gets SUPER hot, hot enough to cause a burn to the skin on touch. -was only able to reach 122MB/s max read rate , nowhere near the listed 550MB/s using a 3.1 port directly off mobo. -cost $200, for this price you can get a 500 GB Samsung 850 pro, which will perform much better.
Other Thoughts: I am not sure if my drive is defective, but overall performance of the drive was extremely poor. The drive got hot enough to burn my hand when I touch it, and cooked the mouse pad section it was sitting on. The speed was quite poor as well, with only 122MB max read rate, and minimum rates as low as 300KB.

Oddly became permanently read-only after not using it for a while
Pros: - small and lightweight
Cons: - I used it very rarely over a year ago. After a year of not using it, to my surprise, it entered what is called "Currently read-only state": a state that *cannot* be changed by any Windows/DOS commands. The disk is *not* read-only according to the Windows Disk Management, but it cannot be modified nor formatted ("Currently read-only state"). The only way to fix this is to find the particular chipset related flash tool (which I was unable to find, as the chipset maker, which is not Team Group, has an asian language site and I just gave up).
The Team Group web site does not offer any repair or restore tool for this disk.
Color me paranoid, but it feels like the device was made to stop working after x years. I am really not amused that an SSD disk would stop working though it was just hanging out over my desk with, as only threat, dust and wifi waves.

Pros: The price is right and quality seems pretty good. I used mine as a boot device for re-imaging PCs with Ghost. It works perfectly for this purpose. Transfer speeds (especially write speeds) are about 5x than that of your average USB 3.0 flash drive.
Cons: I also have another external SSD from another brand which is smaller (physically) than this and the write speed is a little bit faster. I couldn't find any of that brand in stock so I got this. It does the job but the other brand is a little bit better value due to its faster speed and smaller size.
Other Thoughts: This thing absolutely beats a USB flash drive if speed matters to you. It's not even close, not even the supposed high-speed drives can compete.
