Pros: Super fast, easy installation

Cons: 90GB is just not enough to install everything

With the help of steam mover and a few 7200rpm 64mb cache 1tb hdds for your user files, game installation, and other media/documents this drive is enough for most Win7 install. I went with the 120GB, which is more than enough. The initial installation is very easy, though after there is alot of configuration needed to redirect various parts of windows to different drives. The speed gain you will get in return makes this well worth the time.

i BOUGHT ONE FOR MY FIRST CUMPUTER BUILD WHIHC WAS DONE SUCCESFULLY 2 WEEKS AGO. I JUST RLEIZED CAPS LOCK WAS ON AND I just turned it off. lol
anyway, gt660ti, i7 3770k i got. and yea i had to open th command prompt and "clean" my ssd for it to show up in the windows installer.
Now my ssd is just running but I bet I should have some program installed to maintain it?
I have nothing to maintain mine. Did you change your bios SATA/IDE setting to AHCI. If you haven't already then you will have to download the driver for it or the pc won't boot. No programs are needed to maintain, you can use Space Sniffer to monitor your free space and just redirect your user files and Windows TEMP and TMP to another hard drive. Also reduce you page file size and delete the hibernation file. All of this will save writes on your disc and increase it's lifespan.
I had to change the bios setting to AHCI myself. Not sure what it does exactly, but raid wasn't an option for me wuth a 2tb hard drive.

And If I change my windows user files it'll load slower I think i read a tut on here about that and decided not to do it.

whats page file size?
thanks
mine doesn't. it still loads lightening fast. Either way, if you don't change it you will be doing alot of needless writes to your ssd. The idea is to drop the writes as low as possible to increase the lifespan of your ssd
