I gave up near the beginning of the fairy part, in the anime. So I have no idea about the novels, but I've been told the writing is consistently bad throughout, but I'm interested in hearing your opinion.
Can you please tell me what was so great about the story?
Judging from the first anime arc, other than completing the game to live and, imo, a forced love story, there was no story. It was really more of a concept, with episodes leading to beating the game, not much else at all.
Also, aside from whether the story was good, how did you find the writing overall?

The author does know that he took an amazingly simple but interesting premise and kinda fucked it up. That's where SAO Progressive(read the manga) comes in, where the characters develop and Kirito is STILL overpowered. The strength of the storyline, as warbob said, is not in how its written, which is with all the prose of a 17 year old,(considering it is from the POV of a 16-17 year old, this is forgivable) but the plot in itself.
The first volume of SAO is great, if you take all the side stories which fit with it into account. The latest volumes of SAO are also great, when a new take on VR is shown and where stuff actually matters again.
ALO, where the main female lead is turned into a plot point and we have some half-assed 'drama' from the big-titted cousin? Gun Gale Online, where the only redeeming factor of it was the addition of a cool but female character which only does more to confuse the supposed romance between the two main characters? It's shit too.
If you want to read SAO, wait until progressive is finished. Up until now that is by far the best version of the story. If you're up for checking out the novels then go ahead they are a lot better than the anime. Be warned though: it has its flaws. Kirito is still 2OP, and if you want the full story in a chronological order you're going to have to read the novels in a special and confusing order.

The writing itself isn't something spectacular, but the story is captivating and as said above it isn't just "the story goes on" .It's more of a story about psychology of humans than anything else really.On the Sword art online (game) arc it heavily emphasizes on the "am I wasting my life by playing a game?" for example.
And the story is good imo.

Just pointing out that calling streaming inferior is just stubborn elitism at this point. It's not hard to find streams in 720p, while HTML5 is becoming standard for streaming engines. Additionally I've found that Anilinkz actually has several anime it's impossible to find anywhere else, like Seitokai no Ichizon, whereupon being in need of a download so I could watch it on the go, the only one I could find had me download the episodes individually at 240p, with several of the episodes from the second season missing.

HD vs. potato cam
potato cam is fine until you get used to HD. Downloading is something you don't understand until you do it a few times. Then you can't go back to streaming because low quality. Seriously, don't start downloading anime or you will never be able to stream again.

I don't read books because I have no life. I read books because I choose to have many.
