Great Processor for the money
Pros: OC'd to 3.2GHz right away, runs perfect. Runs under 40C with Coolermaster TX3 in an Antec 600 case.
Overall Review: I was worried about the shipping packaging from other reviews. Mine came in a taped clamshell, wrapped in bubble wrap that was securely taped, in a box packed with paper. UPS would have had to run it over to hurt it. Newegg fixed that problem.
It's really good
Pros: Fast and low power consumption. Samsung Magician is a nice little utility. It isn't a stunning upgrade from my old SSD boot drive, but it seems a little faster than my OCZ vertex 2 that is 4 years old. Sequential reads and writes are 503 and 469.
Cons: Doesn't come with 3.5" mounting bracket. Gets less than 50% of the IOPS that are advertised, using Samsung Magician's benchmark. 45390 and 39211. I don't have RAPID mode enabled. It could be that, or it could be my old motherboard. ASUS M4A89TD.
Overall Review: 128 GB Model purchased elsewhere.
My SSD is Faster Than Your HDD
Pros: Fast, Low Power Consumption, Small, Easy to install, What's not to like. Boot's Fast enough that I always turn my computer off when I am not using it. Since I don't let it sleep it does make a difference on my power bill.
Cons: I can't afford 3 more for RAID
Overall Review: If You can afford an SSD for your OS and core programs, get it, you won't regret it.
Pros: Looks great, great air flow. OC'd Phenom II X3 720 stays under 40C all the time. Lots of space inside for big cpu cooler. Top exhaust makes a huge difference in heat build up. My friend's setup has top mount power supply and he can't get his processor to run under 50C, and he has a nicer Cooler than my Coolermaster TX3.
Cons: My mini atx motherboard looks funny in it. :)
Overall Review: Got it on a shell shocker combo, New Egg is the best
