Pros: Internal and external ports, PCIe, easy install, inexpensive. Windows 7 64 bit found it and installed the drivers automatically. The internal port would be nice if you had a front plate on your chassis with a Firewire port.
Cons: Nothing really, although I did not realize the card needed a power connection. Not a big deal as it's just a molex connection though.
Other Thoughts: Bought this to hook up an old external Firewire drive to a PC that had no Firewire ports.
I forgot how fast Firewire is, it feels like it's not even an external drive.
Pros: Worked right out of the box. Installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 on it which used about 30GB. I only plan on it being used as a boot and utility drive for which it is the perfect size.
Comes with a bracket and screws to adapt it to fit into a normal 3.5" HDD bay. It also came with double sided adhesive tape fitted to the shape of the drive in case you just want to stick it somewhere. I did not need to use either of these as my case had an SSD plate to screw it on to.
6GB/s & TRIM support, faster read/write speed than similarly priced SSDs.
Cons: Small storage space if you consider that a con for these? Was reported as 59.9 GB.
Doesn't come with a case badge/sticker. =(
Other Thoughts: Make sure you set this to use AHCI in the BIOS when you install it.
Used this in a build for a basic (maybe I went a little overboard), modern PC for my non-gaming mother. Boots in about 10 seconds. ADATA makes pretty good RAM and so far this has lived up to their reputation.
