Summary: I purchased this drive to replace the standard 5400 rpm drive in my new Asus UL30Vt-X1 laptop. I have been using RAID 0 setups on my desktops for the past decade and have never felt they delivered the right performance level for the price. I can honestly say that this is a gigantic improvement in speed for nearly all loading of programs or even Windows.
Summary: I have installed this SSD only a few days ago, so I cannot comment on the long term performance or durability. As most of you know, the much talked about topic regarding the SSD is their "write" performance after some use. I don't have Win7 and the firmware of this ssd doesn't (yet) suport the TRIM function.
Summary: Actual size is 59.9 GB, I got this for my ASUS G50VT-A2 laptop to run as the primary HDD instead of the original 7200 rpm Seagate that came with it, vista takes about 15 GB(will upgrade to windows 7 as soon as I get my free copy!) other programs that I have installed took like 25 or something GB so the size being at 64 GB was perfect for me since I have a secondary 320GB 7200 rpm Seagate.
Summary: Bought this as the operating system drive for my new editing machine. Windows 7 boots up in no time at all from this hard drive, and my editing software is a lot faster at starting as well. A point to make out though is that solid state drives are designed for fast reading and not fast writing. So while it is ideal for the operating system, you may want to get a second hard disk drive for all your files and the computer paging file.
