Good points:
fast fast fast!
Bad points:
Massively expensive.
The bottleneck in desktops are storage drives. How much longer do we have to wait for a 1Tb SSD for under £100

Steven, Casual computer user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Made my cumbersome PC speed up tremendously, would recommend SSD to anyone
Bad points:
value for money is quite low at the moment... for zero moving parts it should be less risk therefore safer manufacture.

Guy, IT Professional

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Easy to fit. Fast performance - I swapped out an HDD, re-installed Windows from scratch on the SSD and Windows flies. Overall performance of everything is much better. I know it will get worse over time, Windows always does, but so far it's outstanding and definitely worth doing. I've had my laptop nearly 4 years, and with this new lease of life I'd say it's now probably good for another 4.
Bad points:
Not really a negative, but one to be aware of: A laptop will sometimes run hotter with an SSD. That's because the processor is a big generator of heat, and whereas it's normally waiting a lot for an HDD to deliver data, with an SSD it can process at 100% when it needs to. This means the fan will be on more often, so it can be a bit noisier. So, hotter and more noise, but only when it's working hard.

Blisteringly fast drive, this is a best upgrade for any pc or mac, this really puts my wd raptors in raid 0 to shame, can't wait to see this drive perform under raid 0 also
Bad points:
Can't fault it, only the price is the down side
