I could agree with this. We don't really know how these drives will perform, and the capacities and driver support make them tricky to use.

OTOH, nothing I have put into my system in ages has resulted in such a noticable difference in system speed for me. In my laptop, the speed and lower temps were astounding (boot times went from 3.5-4 mins to ~40-50 secs, drop in temps by 10-20c).
