I've had this drive since August. My i7-3770k system with this drive takes 9 seconds to boot to Win7 desktop from pressing the power button. SSD Toolkit still reports 100% drive health. I use power save modes without any issues. For me it's been a fantastic sata 3 drive.
I'm an outdoor adventurer, science geek, classical guitarist, programmer, photographer, audiophile, and car nut, so I try to help the SD community by posting useful information in those areas.
On the front lines every day fighting the true SD effect: Buying a completely inferior product for a slight discount to the real thing.
