The install times are amazing, and honestly it might be worth it just to watch that 60GB game get written to your drive as fast as it possibly can. These drives are a luxury for sure, but I'd say go for it if you can. Especially with the deals available right now. And, for the record, even though it's a different model than the one on sale today, I haven't had a single problem or issue since installing my SSD. So they are quite reliable.

Customize your gaming PC and maintain peak performance with the sleek design that can support a heatsink.
