Pros:

Did I Mention Fast, Easy To Install, Highly Compatible, Quiet, Fast

Describe Yourself:

Heavy Duty User

Primary use:

Business

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was waiting for the price on SSDs to drop enough to justify purchase, and I needed one that was 512GB at least. This fit the bill nicely and is really like getting a whole new computer, everything opens in a second! I have only been using it about a week, so I can't comment on long term reliability, but so far I love it! Totally worth it.

Bottom Line:

I splurged on this to replace the primary internal drive in the laptop I use for photographic work in the field. It replaced a "normal" hard drive that is functioning perfectly but was conflicting somehow with the bios in my two-year-old laptop. This SSD was immediately recognized and treated like any "normal" SATA drive by system BIOS, operating system (Win7), and two different brands of old drive mirroring software (two years old, from last time I replaced a drive). With a quick format the drive was ready. Using my old software, mirrored the partitions from my old drive. Installed the SSD in my laptop and tested all functions. Things have been working perfectly for almost a month now -- no concerns. The drive formatted to slightly larger than a "normal" hard drive of the same capacity. It is amazingly fast: Operations that used to take seconds or minutes now complete in about one blink of the drive light. It is also nice and cool even in intensive use writing and reading large photo files -- no more hot spot on my lap. Battery life also went WAY up (what used to be three-four hours went to nearly eight). I was worried about compatibility and lifespan replacing a "normal" drive with an SSD, but shouldn't have been. The drive is guaranteed compatible if the manufacturer's website says it will work with your computer. It is also warranted for three years, with anticipated MTBF claimed at more like five years (in my normal use). So this drive's lifespan should be on par with most "normal" hard drives -- in a traveling laptop it may even last longer since there are no moving parts to crash. (Think of working in planes, trains, or automobiles -- no more risk of hard drive crash if there's a big bump.) Only downside of this beast is that it is very expensive compared to "normal" hard drives of similar size.
