Scott , Durham Photographer & Designer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This little beauty is lovely! Although I put-off and put-off my upgrade, I went all out and did a SSD OS Disc for Win7 Pro 64bit. It loads up in around 20 seconds from power on. Its ace. I have a Quad Core AMD FX 4.1Ghz processor on an ASUS [asus m5a78l-m/usb3] board. It plugged in and ran from the off, no BIOS issues at all. I'm glad I got this kit. There were other options and larger capacity drives but I went with a reliable brand that had relatively good value for money and a 5 yr warranty.
Bad points:
No documentation about the 5 yr warranty - what's up with that?!
I saved money getting the OEM version, but this came as a drive only... would have liked at least one cable with it! Although the SATA3 and power cables I purchased afterwards were less costly than the retail version's price increase. I have yet to see how well it continues to perform. I have had it in for 2 weeks and it's running sweet though.
