Summary: This is my first solid state drive (SSD) so I can't speak to how this drive compares to other SSDs on the market, but if there's anyone reading this review who is --like I was-- on the fence about making the jump to a SSD: go for it.
Summary: I had a little trouble getting my HDD image to mount to this SSD but the fault was not with the drive it was my fault. I was trying to put a 80 gig partition on a 64 gig drive (do no ask how long it took me to figure that out).
Summary: This slid right into place, easy as pie, on our custom build. I have Windows 7, Office, Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, and lots of other programs installed on it, and at half-full, it works like a charm! We supplemented it with a 1TB HD as well.
Summary: MSI Wind U123 Upgrade from standard 160gb 5400rpm 2.5 Drive. Running Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit -2GB Ram -32Gig SSD Corsair -16gb SD Card Class 10 for read boot and temp files Is it better? Yes, it boots in 15 to 20 seconds and shutdowns are 5 to 7 seconds. Opening everything is around 1 to 2 seconds.
Summary: I decided to buy this drive for one purpose - a boot drive for my HTPC. I was originally was just going to get a 8GB SSD, but the performance on those was only slightly better than a typical hard drive. I decided to up to the 64GB model and put my the OS on the SSD drive as well.
Summary: My research indicated that for the money, you get great performance from this SSD. It may not have the small-file random read/write performance of the Intels, but that is more than made up for by the amazing sequential performance with larger files. Also, the price is SO much more reasonable.
Summary: SSD disks are awesome. I am not the first one to say this, but can only reiterate, if you plan to do one upgrade to you system this year, buy an SSD, it makes your system fly, and Cosair 128 GB SSD is no different, just connect it with your standard Sata plugs, modify your Bios to make sure you boot...
