Super fast storage!
very fast, but small. be prepared to strip down you OS if this is your primary storage. however as a cheaper option is still well worth the money 8/10

About 50% quicker copying than hdds on my 5 year old gear.
Although my present mobos sata controllers arn't capable of fully utilizing the speeds of this ssd i have two of these on one mobo and two hdds (they are about 5 years old, 7200 rpm, and of average quality) on another similar mobo for backups. Copying data is about 50% quicker with the ssds.

AMAZING SSD; worth every penny considering the price.
Purchased this product to complete the new PC I built back in October. All I can say is: Wow. Just wow. This has made things 10x quicker than they already were. Booting Windows only takes about 3 - 6 seconds (Not including the Splash screen of the Motherboard). I always hated how there was a 5 second delay when you first turn Windows on where you couldn't do anything on a Mechanical drive. Well, with the SSD, there is no delay. All my programs loads instantaneously without any lag, stutter or refusal. Moving a 6GB file to the SSD only takes less than 45 seconds - which is outstanding to be honest! Considering it took at least 9 minutes on my 1TB HDD! I've paired this with the following specs: Phenom II 980 @ 3.7Ghz x4 8GB Corsair Vengence DDR3 1600Mhz EVGA GTX 550ti 1GB ASUS M4A87TD Motherboard running the SSD on SATA III. The SSD reaches a Windows Experience Rating of 7.6! Amazing! The only fault I could find is that: Windows didn't recognise the drive right off of the bat. I had to fiddle with some settings in the BIOS, Drive Manager and Device Manager to get it recognised. But hey, all hardware has to be configured, right? Especially when it comes with a free 3.5 inch mounting bracket :) Read full review
