Very fast...

Pros: This SSD screams, its extremely fast. Benchmarks show 427 write and 497 read. Whats most important for me was the warranty: 5-years. As long as this SSD doesnt have any failures then I am happy.

Cons: None (yet).

Best Speed Per $, per second

Pros: Faster random read speeds, (100,000 IOPS), than Samsung, Crucial, and OCZ by quite a bit! Max read: 540mb/s & max write: 460mb/s. Very reliable and I've had it for almost a year. Make sure you update the drive via Plextor's website.

Cons: can't think of a single one.

Other Thoughts: I run 2 1TB HDDs and this single 256GB SSD. But now I'm considering jumping to a 480/500GB SSD and using the 256 SSD for some exclusive stuff as well as faster cache memory for Photoshop.

So far, so good.

Pros: 5-year warranty
speed
reliable so far

Cons: Plextor utility application does not recognize the drive in my notebook for some reason, a minor inconvenience. The drive works 100%.

Other Thoughts: This is my first SSD drive. I wanted one with a 5-year warranty that was in my budget. This unit delivers.

SSD as fast as 5400RPM

Pros: This is an SSD and when used with a USB 3.0 connection has slightly faster trasnfer rates than a regular 5400 RPM 2.5" drive.

Cons: For an SSD the transfer rate was noticeably slow. I have owned a variety of SSD's and this has been the slowest out of all. Used as a Server main drive, I ended up replacing with another SSD I had on the shelf.
