It's an SSD !!!
None so far
I took a leap of faith since the Sandforce issue's seemed to be resolved. This came with FM 2.15.

I am running it on a Sata2 port and it's still night and day over a traditional hard drive.

No seeks times, no access times with blazing reads/writes and decent randoms, you can't go wrong.

I haven't had any issues with this drive over the last 4 month.

SSD Life reports 100% health, with 8 years 10 days remaining.

I'm running 1 game on it, some screen capture sotfware and anything else I want to launch, patch, install extremely quick.

Windows 8 lauches in about 10 seconds, I kid you not.

Good buy when on sale.

Noticeable improvement over a HDD
Pain and a half to get working
Got this on sale as a boot drive to go alongside two 2TB hard drives for storage. Took quite a while to get it to boot with my aging motherboard; updated every driver I had, updated the bios, swapped cables around, restarted a million times, etc. Not sure what finally got it working, but it did, and works like a charm now. Boot is very fast, though not as fast as it could be as my motherboard is only SATA2, but that should be getting upgraded soon.

- Comes in a nice package with a mounting bracket and screws
- None so far
60 GB is kind of small with only about 55 GB usable, but large enough for an operating system. My desktop does boot a little faster (with this drive) than my laptop's SSD which has an Indilinx controller. I am also glad my SSD did not arrive DOA. I guess the foam packaging helps and that is why I listed it as a pro.

Performance, price
Awkward 2.5" to 3.5" adapter
The Vertex 3 line is a great contender in the SF-2000 line of SSDs.

Performance is high and quality is decent.

The 2.5" to 3.5" adapter doesn't really work with a number of cases, which is a bit odd.

Experience: 2 Months

Affordable & fast. 3.5" mounting hardware included
The rebate process is too restrictive
A good drive to update  my HTPC to improve performance. Video streaming seems smoother.

The 3.5" mounting bracket & screws are handy for mounting the SSD into a desktop machine. Not all SSD brands come with one.

I couldn't claim my rebate because it only allowed a 30 day period after purchase.

Fast, works as promised
Picked this drive up for a work computer. Computer is amazingly fast now.

Experience: 7 Days
 Verified Owner
Cheap, came with 2.5 to 3.5 mount
None as of yet.
I added this drive in due to it's bonus of Free Shipping for entire order. It's installed as a Games drive. Pretty speedy load times.

No complaints. Would do it again if it includes the free shipping.

Comes with a 3.5" adapter
None so far
It's the perfect boot drive! Extremely fast!

- Super fast!
- poor cost/GB ratio
- wish that the 3.5" adapter bracket was a bit bigger and had the same holes as a regular 3.5" drive
Great drive! SATA III and on sale (60GB)
The perfect SSD cache drive for the Intel Z68 SRT (Smart Response Technology)
