    The specs indicate a 95MB/s read and 60MB/s write speeds, which is pretty much what you'd get on a regular magnetic hard drive.

    A regular hard drive(even a slow one) can play 1080p video all day, everyday without breaking a sweat. I don't see how this would be any different.

    Plus, I doubt they'd advertise it this way:
    If it couldn't handle it.

    I just got the JetDrive Lite a couple weeks ago to put my iTunes library on. When I first got it I found I had issues with it unmounting when I'd close the laptop lid. I googled and discovered the JetDrive Toolbox and have not had issues since.. well, except for one time I left iTunes open and then went to iTunes when I opened the lid before the card remounted.. but just once! I haven't played any movies with it yet, but have no problems with the music.
