Although fast, the drive is not as reliable as most other SSDs. There have been numerous reports on how quickly this drive fails.

Also reports as 55GB in W7.

The proof's in the name.

6Gb/s interface. Nuff said.

Links please. All I've ever seen is praise for this drive and when I searched for topics on this drive breaking down I saw a few people saying that it gave them an error in SMART and other people saying to update to the latest firmware.

Well if you'd hadn't mentioned the reported hard drive size you might have had a little bit of credibility. However >

"Hard disk manufacturers quote disk capacity in SI-standard powers of 1000, wherein a terabyte is 1000 gigabytes and a gigabyte is 1000 megabytes. With file systems that measure capacity in powers of 1024, available space appears somewhat less than advertised capacity." Source Wiki.

GEEEEEEEEEEEKS

Got one of these from Scan yesterday and the difference between HDD and SSD is night and day.
It took less than half an hour to install win 7 with all updates etc to get to a useable state where I could install MSOffice.......Cold start to opening an item on the start menu is approx 12 seconds....Admittedly this is on a clean install but I am pretty impressed.
