Plextor 128GB SSD MS5 2.5 SATA3 6GB/S
Cons:n/a

Pros:- incredible speeds, esp on RAID 0- can get it for super cheap on sales.
Comment:
Bought 2 of these for RAID 0 (motherboard) on my main PC. Works fine, been a few years still running strong, no noticeable difference in speeds. I get upwards of 1100MB/s sustained on RAID. I love it so much, it still performs fast enough that the drives are not a bottleneck unlike basically all HDDs in fast PCs.

Plextor 128GB SSD MS5 2.5 SATA3 6GB/S
Cons:Should've bought 2 - one for Win7 and one for Steam. Doesn't come with 3.5 to 2.5 drive thingamajig

Pros:Very fast and it is noticeable visually when booting or loading large videos/pics.
Comment:
Awesome brand, Plextor drives have a great reputation and my experience with this SSD still surprises me when switching between computers. Sadly the price isn't falling as much for the larger capacity since I want to put my Steam folder on an SSD. This drive is doing all I want with speed, no configuration necessary (just install with the other drives disconnected first) and hasn't caused me any issues in the over a year I've had it.

This drive was my first step into SSD land. Very disconcerting the lack of sound a SSD doesn't make but everything seems snappy and zippy so I give it 4 stars!

Plextor 128GB SSD MS5 2.5 SATA3 6GB/S
Cons:Not the fastest SSD out there

Pros:Ease of installation with Windows 8Plextor's reputation for making reliable SSDs
Comment:
Used one of these SSDs in a HTPC build for my brother. Worked like a charm with Windows 8. Make sure you have AHCI mode set in your bios, which is the default option in most newer motherboards.

Plextor 128GB SSD MS5 2.5 SATA3 6GB/S
Cons:Doesn't come with brackets (like on M5P)

Pros:Easy to installFastNo hiccups
Comment:
I've had this SSD for about a month. So far, it's been rock solid. Being brand new, there was no firmware to update. I liked that it used the Marvell controller and not Sandforce. Time will tell if it's as solid as the Crucial m4 but there doesn't seem to be any reason that it won't be. Read times are amazingly fast and write isn't that bad. Overall, recommended.

Plextor 128GB SSD MS5 2.5 SATA3 6GB/S
Cons:None

Pros:Fast, cheap (price matched to $86 each)
Comment:
Bought two of these a little while ago, both for relatively new builds. I never used an SSD before, and I had no clue they were this fast! It worked straight out of the box, and I had no problems installing windows 7 on it (aside from silly user errors, but I digress). Definitely something I would buy again.

Not much to say other than it worked and it's a big upgrade over a standard HDD. Very happy so far.
