Pros
Reliability, Speed and mature support tools
Cons
slightly slower sequential write rate which is a non-issue for typical usage(most people)
Summary
I tried the Vertex 2 first which die on the first day and get very bad support experience on their forum. And was later found that they are shipping product of known data loss issue.

This x25m is completely different. Works out of the box, good support utility(to handle possible long term use performance degrade and also track life of the device) and it is fast

ncix service is also top notch

Pros
- Super Fast
- Silent
- Small
- Lower power
Cons
- Low capacity
Summary
This is the most important upgrade that I have made in recent years. Of course a better video card does improve gaming performance but what about regular software? SSD is really a revolution. My PC feels much more snappier. I bought a cheapo/high capacity hard-drive for my secondary drive. This is really a winning setup.

Pros
-Lightning fast
-Optimized for Windows 7
-Great boot drive
Cons
-OCZ Vertex 2 may sometimes have better value (and speed)
-Otherwise, none at all!
Summary
This thing is fast. 'Nuff said.

I've been with this SSD for exactly 2 months by now. It's not the best value at default price but I matched it to the sale price at Newegg ($220) during the day of purchase and got a fairly good deal for it.

I'd take the OCZ Vertex 2 (especially the 50GB that was on sale for just $150 very recently) over this though, but I don't think it was out yet. I'm happy anyways.

Pros
Speed
No noise
Cons
Let you know if I find any
Summary
Coming from a Raptor for my previous OS drive, and all I can say is WOW! I can't believe the difference an SSD makes, and all I can say is I'll never go back to a mechanical drive.
I have Win 7 Pro 64 installed on this without issue. Windows experience index reads 7.7 for the drive (AHCI mode)(7.5 in IDE mode).
Don't forget to run SSD tweaker and turn off defrag if you get one.
If you're thinking about getting one, do it and you won't regret it. Just get a second drive for storage is you're worried about running out of space.

Pros
fast, easy to install, absolutely silent
Cons
none so far
Summary
What an incredible update  to my system! Installed win 7 x64 flawlessly. Using this as the main boot drive and core programs..from power up button to full windows 7 in 15-20 seconds. Fast backup and verification to my rdx backup drive. Once you have one of these, it would be very difficult to go back to a mechanical hd. Highly recommended.

Pros
Blazing Quick
Zero Delay
Noiseless
Feather Weight
No Heat
Robust/Reliable
Small
Compatible with Desktop, Laptop & Netbook PCs/Macs
Compatible with: Windows XP, Vista & 7 (works faster on 7) since TRIM/AHCI has native support.
Cons
Now I cannot go back to traditional rotational HDDs
Now I feel like every other PC out there is slow
Now I wanna buy more to have one in every machine I own = $
Summary
Once you have one you won't wanna run your machines on RPM drives.
This is "the" most noticeable upgrade you can do right now.
Please gimme a favor, just get one! You'll thank me man!

Pros
Incredible speed.
Near instant response loading applications.
Cons
Price. These are still costly for the size.
Summary
I put this in a 2009 Mac Mini as a boot drive. This is an amazing upgrade. Small applications load instantly, while others that used to be pigs are much improved. Word 2008 takes 2 seconds, Photoshop CS4 takes about 5 seconds. A great improvement from the OEM hard drive.

Pros
Fast, realiable, one of the best controller out there
Cons
SSD pricing in general
Summary
If you never tried SSD and want a proven controller intel is surely the way to go. Intel did come with an amazing product here, and if you can get it on sale, go for it !

Pros
Fast, Very Fast. Ample storage for most boot disks.
Cons
Price, but these are SSDs and will be high for a while.
Summary
Picked it up during the Black Friday sale. Once it shipped, I received it fast. Like less than 24 hours fast. This is the retail drive, so you also get the 2.5" to 3.5" adapter if your installing in a desktop. Installation is as simple as it gets and speed improvements are noticeable instantly. Applications load much faster. From Firefox to Adobe suite of apps, everything loads and opens up in no time. If you have a high end desktop but no SSD, chances are your holding your system back. When it comes to upgrade, it's not an i7 or HD 5970 that's going to yield the biggest improvement, it's an Intel SSD.

Pros
Fast, small, no temperature issues
Cons
Not a weakness nor NCIX, but the drive was bricked after applied the Intel firmware to enable the ATA Trim feature
Summary
Was a very fast drive for the time I owned it (See Weaknesses).After speaking with NCIX I had my replacement 160GB model in less that 24hours - Now that's service!
