Summary: I have an old Dell desktop computer with SATA interface and Windows 7 Pro. I decided to install this cache drive. Compatibility is superb. I installed the drive with the SATA cable, then enabled the SATA port on the Bios, reset de computer and it was detected automatically.
Summary: This greatly increased my computer on my windows 7 machine. To cheap to get an actual SSD to replace my 1TB hard drive, I got this and it was wonderful! Programs opened faster, were usable faster, boot time was decreased significantly, and shut down time was almost non existent!
Summary: Install in custom built i7 desktop to improve software performance. Thus far machine boots quicker and my bar code programs performance has been quicker. Less costly and very simple upgrade to perform without having to replace 4 2TB HDs with SSDs or modifing windows - all automatic.
Summary: ** UPDATED with times using Intel AHCI driver *** Cold boot (power on) to Windows login. Note, approx first 22 s is BIOS (before hitting the boot drive). before (IDE): 68 s, 69 s after (IDE): 41 s, 41 s after (AHCI): 43 s (now checks CDROM for media) Windows login to desktop fully loaded.
Summary: When i saw this and the product reviews about i told my self "it's just a $55 product, wouldn't hurt to test it", but it turned out it was the best $55 i ever spent on my old PC, Windows 7 used to load in about 1:20+ from the time i push the power button until fully loaded desktop icons, but now...

Con: Initial Loads take longer on first or second load, then are very fast afterwards(only a con when u dont know what its doing,...
Summary: Pros: easy to install, 3.5" tray, screws, Cons: supply your own data cable, really... silly serial number 28 characters is on the Bottom of the drive so write it down first. Install, reboot, install software, reboot, go faster.
Summary: It was easy to install, both the drive and the software, and it works very well -- no problems. All programs are sped up significantly -- after the 1st time you open a program or application (which loads part of that program in the cache), thereafter most open instantaneously or within a few...
