Summary: Yes, this is not the fastest SSD you can buy. That is OK. I have an old Lenovo Laptop with a 2.1 GHz (T8300) Core Duo CPU in it that I like, as the Lenvo is an old friend that is built like a piece of military equipment. Such a machine does not have SATA 3 anyway, so cheaper and functional is better for upgrading to SSD. This unit qualifies. It is cheap, functional and still very fast - probably around 10x faster than a mechanical drive.
Cheap upgrade, huge bang for your buck difference.

Summary: Bought it cause i needed a cheap OS drive to replace a old failing 5400RPM drive. It made a old laptop seem like brand new in performance. Why people don't spend the small amount of cash on a SSD, is beyond me. The person who i fixed the laptop for, thought it was a brand new different computer cause of the night and day difference in the performance. Overall great addition to aging equipment to make it seem current.
Summary: my computer would not recognize the drive. maybe because I am using win xp pro sp3. however the migration software that is used with it cannot be UNINSTALLED. tried add/remove it was not listed. so I used windows explorer to remove the folder, bad move, it wiped out my operating system. when I did a nondestructive reinstall my video drivers were corrupted. I ended up buying a new video card to get back in operation. be very careful with the migration software ! ! !
