5/ 5
Fast, fast storage, for those with the budget, do not hesitate.

Pros: Easy to install.
Snappier than SSD.
FormFactor is much tighter and neater than clunky old disks and cables, for a nice tidy motherboard (positive for case airflow).
Did I mention no cables?

I bought 2 x 512 and striped them RAID 1 for a full TB of ultrafast storage...

It's almost so fast that I find myself asking if I still need RAM in the system (of course you do... silly)

Gosh I really love these things.

Feb 2018 - still running strong - still delighted!

Cons: They get HOT while running. I got the version without the heat spreader and I think I might want to buy some sort of focused cooling solution for these babies.

On my ASRock Z170 Extreme7+ LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI I had to do a lot of fiddling in UEFI/BIOS to make windows 7 install on my RAID 1. Win 10 was no issues.

New Fast Stuff is usually expensive stuff. This is no exception.

Other Thoughts: They do have firmware and you should update it.

Good stuff

Pros: High read/write speeds
Boots win10 in seconds
Next-to-no loading times browsing files, playing games, etc

Cons: No built-in cooling (I bought some 3rd party mini RAM heatsinks for it, and it idles at 30-40C mostly)

Fast and easy

Pros: -Easy install works well out of the box with Gigabyte Ultra Gaming LGA2011-3 Intel X99.
-Fast! Faster than standard SATA3 SSD. Faster than an older Sandisk and newer cheap TeamGroup SSD.

Cons: -More expensive than the standard SSD.
-Might run hot although i didn't personally test this.
-Not as universal as a standard SATA SSD.

Other Thoughts: -Got it on sale for almost the price of a regular SATA SSD cant go wrong.

Fast!

Pros: Very fast for the money.

Cons: Slow write speeds when first installed, needed to go into device manager properties to enable both write cache options to get it to hit its rated speeds.

Very slow boot time

Pros: Fast after the very slow boot time and reasonable price during Black Friday deal.

Cons: Very slow boot time. No response on my first email. Responded on my second email when I mentioned that I will leave a unfavorable feedback. Escalated the issue and provided the information they requested. I did not receive anymore response. Left one egg for very slow boot time and not responding to my last email.

Other Thoughts: I don't think I will be buying any Plextor products, and I will not recommend Plextor to my coworkers and relatives, who ask and value my recommendations on electronic and computer products.

RMAing this product

Pros: - Doubled my old SSD capacity and speed, for a few days
- Good Black Friday deal

Cons: - Unreliably seen by updated BIOS and Windows 10
- Could not sleep PC without BSOD
- Could not reboot without freezing at POST and having to hard power-cycle via PSU rocker switch
- Powered off PC one night and wouldn't boot the next day; booted into old SSD and it shows up as a Marvell 2GB uninitialized disk in Disk Manager

Other Thoughts: - Emailed Plextor customer service and didn't receive a response (although it's only been < 1 business day so not an issue)
- Tried Plextor's chat feature and after describing the issue and stating I was on latest FW 1.04, they recommended RMA

System:
Asus Z97-A/USB 3.1
Core i5 4670K
16 GB DDR3 2400
NVIDIA GTX1070 (ASUS STRIX OC)

Very fast

Pros: Extremely fast. Not sure what boot screen one of the guys is referring to. I boot up windows 10 in 4-5 seconds. Have a 6700 as the CPU and 32gb RAM. Have had no issues. It's extremely fast after running some tests.

Cons: None. I got it for <200 during Black Friday and it's more expensive now.
