Pros: Install was very simple - less than 30 minutes from open package until fully installed on computer. If you have never installed a SSD before remember it is not exactly like a standard hard drive. You will have to do some configuration changes after you install it to format, assign a drive letter, etc. This particular drive did not include an application to do this for you but it is easy enough to do even as a beginner if you check youtube videos or similar.
Cons: None really- some may prefer the more expensive drives that include software app for configuring but it is very easy to find online and when you can get a 500gb M.2 SSD for under $90 that has great speed and performance on benchmarks and noticeably improved boot times and better game play it is hardly a "con"....
Overall Review: Highly recommend this drive - if you do have to call support you even talk to a real person located in the US !
Pros: Incredibly easy to set up even if you are not a tech genius- the microphone does a great job and makes it easy to optimize the equalizer for best sound. Both movies and the XBOX 360 sound incredible with it. The Upscaling must work really well also because it gives a much better picture when watching a DVD than our Blu ray/ dvd player did without it.
Cons: None really - though I did have to purchase additional speaker wire because the wires that came with it were not long enough for the rear speakers.
Overall Review: The kids love it with the XBox- it really makes the shooter games like Black ops much more exciting. It can really get loud with a room vibrating base that makes it feel like you are really in the game.
