Pete,

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Cheap, fast performance with incompressible data (so Sandforce not an option) Bought to house audio sample libraries, so fast read performance more important than fast write.
Bad points:
Couldn't initialize on internal SATA connection, had to install in external firewire case to format, then install in computer. After that, no problems. Mind you, this is a Hackintosh, so YMMV.

Phillip, Chatham

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
None that I can think of.
Bad points:
After several attempts of getting his drive to work as my primary harddrive I have given up,

Constent blue screen error messages, tried several "solutions" from official forums with no success.

Waste of time and money.

David, Bolton

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
SSD's are many times faster than mechanical drives. Even if they fail you may still read from them. I run this SATA 3 device on an older SATA 2 mobo, it just provides tha max throughput in SATA 2, 300Mb/sec. Its top speed.
Bad points:
None.
