Also, by removing the moving parts it eliminates a lot of heat that could build up in your system therefore lowering the power needed to be supplied to the fans putting less strain on your system.
All this benefit isn't without it's fallbacks though, according to a couple internet sources, it is limited with the amount of times it can be overwritten. The magic number I am unsure of but I would rather not test it. That being said I recommend getting a lower capacity ssd and just putting your cannot live without and frequently used programs on there along with your os, and the rest on a standard hdd, combining the best of both worlds. The speed of the ssd with the rewritability and cost efficiency of an hdd.
Another con, is the price. The cost/GB of a ssd is much much much higher than the cost/GB of an hdd.
Personally, I think the pro's more than make up for the cost or cons. The first time you hit the power button on your pc and after about 5 seconds you are typing in your password you will wonder how you ever used anything else.

I am running windows 7, and I can go from off, to able to run any program in about 5 seconds. Now, I have some very nice components as well, so please keep that in mind. From windows start screen to desktop it takes about 1 second and change. That is so nice for me, as I am coming from xp, and loading took forever... So yes, ssd drives such as this are lightening quick.
I have had no issues with this drive. It was straight plug and play for me. I didn't install any drivers, or disks included, but you may do so if you want the utilities and features they have available. This unit is small enough to "stack" two of them and mount them in a single 3.5 bay. The screw holes on the unit are perfectly placed to allow for easy mounting.
I have had mine for about 3 months, and love it. If my opinion changes, I will be sure to update this... As for now, I highly recommend. Samsung has a real winner here...
