Pros: Cheap drive

Cons: This drive stopped working after 1 wk. It is not worth the money to send it back considering the initial price.

Overall Review: I will just reorder a different drive through newegg - highly disappointed with LG.

Unpleasantly suprised

Pros: Let me start out by saying I was the most excited by this when putting together my new system. This is where my excitement ended.

Cons: I have tried loading vista several times and only will get through half way before windows tells me it couldnt install properly. I have used various programs (UBCD) to test the rest of my components which all were fine. After several times of attempting to load vista and it not finishing. I tried to see if I could format it using an external enclosure - it would get stuck in the middle of formatting and finally won't even be recognized as a drive (power up) when plugged in.

Overall Review: Thankfully, I started building my computer right after getting my components and did not let them sit around for >30 days - therefore I am still in the RMA period. I must say that I will not pass judgement based on 1 defective unit - I am still very excited to use a SSD in my computer and will write a new review once I have recieved a replacement.
