Pros: fast, reliable, reasonable price, easy installation
Cons: none so far after 11 months of heavy use
Overall Review: This is my first SSD and I am very happy with it. Installation was simple and it has been rock solid reliable for almost a year now. The speed improvement over the EIDE drive it replaced is striking, especially watching windows come up and the icons all popping up in the blink of an eye instead of popping up one at a time.
Pros: very fast, quiet, compact, low power, easy installation and setup
Overall Review: I have been running this SSD on my desktop 20 to 40 hours a week for ten months and have had no problems at all. Once you put your system on it ( I am running Windows XP SP3) it may shock you at the speed with which windows starts up, especially getting your desktop with all icons up and displayed. I was nervous about transitioning to SSD but I think now that is the way to go from now on.
Pros: compact, economical
Cons: failed in two months, can't see it even in BIOS so I can't even try recovery
Overall Review: I may just be unlucky on this particular drive. Not much harm done since I was using it as a backup and it died during a back up. Makes me glad that I have put a RAID on my desktop.
