Does everything I expected from a reasonably priced SSD, I bought this around Christmas 2013.
Well... I was reckless about this one... When I had all the parts in the shopping cart, I decided to pick up a SSD, too. Well, it is ok. As in, any SSD is better than any HDD (for system drives). But having in mind that just for extra 10€ or so I could have picked up similarly sized 850 EVO... Nothing can do about it at the moment. In any case, if I would not know about better options, I would be extremely happy about speed of this drive.
The SP900 SSD was a little deceiving. the description stated up-to 500Mb/s read speeds which was only applicable to the larger capacity drives. the actual read speed is around 320Mb/s according to crystal disk-mark. I recommend getting the 960 EVO 250GB which costs about $130 in most places. It is compatible with the board and has 3 times faster reads and 6 times faster writes than the best SATA-3 SSD.
