Andy, IT Professional

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Well, SSDs are expensive so I've rated value & capacity against similar models. SATA III 6g Performance is very good and consistent, and I've had no issues with the two I have bought which is more than can be said of OCZ & Sandisk SSDs I've had recently.
Bad points:
Would be nice to include a 2.5-3.5 mounting kit. The firmware updating routine was a bit of a pain to do as well.
