Experience: 2 Weeks
-includes 3.5" adapter bracket
-fast for the price
-firmware updater could be a bit more userfriendly
bought 6 of these for 3 systems. running raid-0 without any issues. Didn't have any problems with the included firmware but decided to go update  regardless, and once I found the right page which just pointed me to an .iso without any instructions.. I managed. luckily I had a usb dvd drive handy as the systems I built did not have an optical drive installed.

in raid 0 I am getting sequental reads of over 1GB/sec, and writes over 700MB/sec. overall very happy with these drives, would buy again.

Quick startup
Holding up well so far
Speed is pretty close to advertised
None so far
Just installed this a few days ago - windows 7 home premium My mobo has a really long post (~20s), but it takes only about 10s to load windows and get started. Chrome and Office load blazing fast. Haven't installed any game yet so I'm not sure about load time improvements, but moving files is super quick. I had a ton of problems getting windows 7 to work (corrupted updates) and as a result I've restarted the computer 70 or 80 times in the past two days - drive still running like new. So far, so good. Perhaps the 840 Pro is still slightly better, but this drive is great.

Fast. Plextor reliability. Quality flash.
None that I have found yet. If I had to say something the price could come down a buck or two.
What more can I say? Solid performer. Legendary reliabilty.

Fast, easy to install
No physical media for software (enter URL to get)
First SSD I've ever owned, super simple to install and it's just amazingly fast. Cloning software worked well, firmware updated, great benchmarks, no problems!

Packaging (Linus would be all smiles)
Blazing fast
none at all
My first SSD. After checking out many reviews and asking opinions I decided to go with Plextor, so happy I did.
Comes packaged very well, comes with everything you need to install
Updated to the latest firmware, downloaded Plextools, drive is working in perfect condition.
Booting into Windows 8 is only 3-4 secs
Price matched this baby
would recommend to anyone, going to buy another to load all my games on

--cheaper than Intel with equivalent quality
--faster than Intel
-cheaper than Samsung (with better quality too--Toshiba chips)
This is the best bang for your buck right now if you want a "performance" SSD that will not fail on you. I wouldn't personally buy anything but Plextor or Intel for an SSD.

It's faster and cheaper than an Intel 520 with comparable reliability. What more do you want?

Plextor is a great company. I used their warranty years ago on a DVD burner that failed and they sent me a replacement without me ever having to send my malfunctioning one in first. Buy!

FANTASTIC drive. This is my second Plextor.
Why is it that the day you get it there is already a new FIRMWARE available (1.02 1.03)

I am not getting top speed because my computer has only SATA2.

5 Year Warranty
None so far
Can't say anything bad about this SSD. Runs beatifully with the Gigabyte B75M-D3H on SATA3. If you are considering an SSD, look no further. 5 Year warranty, 7mm thin, included backup/cloning software. There's not much else you can ask for.
