Pros
Fast
Reliable
Great for OS
Cons
40 GB's get eaten up fast
Summary
I use this drive as my primary OS drive and everything is hyper fast, 27 seconds from pressing restart in windows 7 to being back at the desktop.

Unfortunately, 40GB's go fast nowadays as the OS takes up about 30 and the remaining 10 are quickly eaten up by applications and other miscellaneous stuff.

I will buy a 2nd one soon for RAID 0 to get 80GB's and put my games on here.

Pros
-Amazing drive
-
Cons
-Small small capacity for big price (not so bad on sale for $80)
Summary
This is a great little boot drive if you can live with the small capacity. It is basically the OS + some windows programs and maybe 1 steam game. I got it with Shogun Total War 2 but I couldn't add it on the SSD cause the game was almost 20 GB :/

When this goes on sale, it is a great purchase to make! When the newer SSD's come down in price then it will lose its value a bit more.

Pros
top of the line, fast, quiet
Cons
none to date
Summary
Got this drive to be the primary boot drive on my HTPC. This thing boots Ubuntu is ~10seconds and has XBMC running in ~12seconds. Nothing really bad to say about this product at all, as Intel has been at the top of the SSD world for some time.

Pros
Easy to install (no jumpers)
Windows 7 has no problems detecting the drive, as all necessary drivers are already in it.
Cons
Small capacity. Windows 7 + Office 2007 + a few other basic apps only leave 10GB of space to play with. A secondary "storage" spinner drive is a must. Luckily, 2TB green drives can be had for nearly the same price as this SSD.
Summary
The drive performs as it should. Windows performance rating gives this drive a score of 7.1 (with 7.9 being the maximum rating for any given component). My previous score was 5.3 with my 7200 RPM Seagate Barracuda on an exact same setup. Furthermore, placing two of these drives in Raid 0 would certainly achieve the maximum rating (go on YouTube to see benchmark videos).

Also... speaking of YouTube... in one of the videos on there, the famous NCIX hardware expert talks about this drive and says that you can remove the black plastic bracket on top of the drive if you wish to. DON'T! If you do, the drive's metal casing literally separates in two and the screws are too short to reassemble without the black plastic bracket in place. Bottom line: leave the drive "as is" and don't attempt to remove the bracket!

A side note: if you want to put your current C: drive on this SSD without having to reinstall Windows (and everything else), I recommend that you "clone" your old hard drive onto this one first. I used a free application called "EASEUS Todo Backup Home 2.0" to clone my old C: drive onto the X25-V (under Windows 7) and everything worked perfectly. It took less than 20 minutes to complete the drive cloning and I was then ready to swap out my old drive with the X25-V without losing a byte of data. Excellent!

Pros
Speed, 1000000 hour rating, long warrantym 6 dollar shipping
Cons
Other than the price of this SSD (like any other ssd the price will be high for awhile)
Summary
Not much to say other than its fast reliable and able to boot win 7 ult on 12 gb of 2000mhz (oc'd to 2056) in about 8 seconds. IM LOVING IT

Pros
Quick Boot times
No moving Parts
Cons
I only got the 40g one :p
Summary
Great SSD for running ur OS and some small apps on. Very quick boot times. Looks nice in my case. I do plan to get another one of these in the future and RAID 0 them for even better performance.

Pros
- fast, quiet, and probably low power consumption
Cons
- small capacity
Summary
Purchased this drive mainly for the low price (bundled deal with a WD Blue 500GB here at NCIX) and apparently the good reviews about the Intel SSD drives. This 40GB value drive does not write as fast as the other SSDs offered by Intel. But the read speed is just as good.

I used this drive mainly for my OS install. I have approximately 21 GB left over after installing Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. Before relocating the registry entries for "program files" location to a Samsung Spinpoint F4 320GB, I have a windows experience score of 7.5.

Pros
Comes with all the mounting accessories
Works well with out issue
Cons
Price/Size/Speed (Not the best value atm)
Summary
This product worked well and the only issue I had at first was Windows XP not detecting the drive.

Once Windows 7 was installed though there was no issue and the drive has been smooth ever since.

Maybe not the fastest drive for the price at the moment or the largest. Still a solid drive overall though and I am happy with my purchase.

Pros
energy efficient
no moving parts
Cons
ssds are still expensive
Summary
I bought this for use in a laptop, and was looking for energy effiency and no moving parts rather than performance (the performance boost over my old 5400rpm drive was a bonus). This was the most energy efficient drive i could find for the lowest price possible. 40gb was more than enough to hold windows 7 64. The operating system took about 9 GB and was 12gb after installing drivers, office, and some other small things. Start-up to login is now ~ 25s and shutdown is ~ 10s. Battery life on my laptop definitely much better now.
