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). Now that I got it to work my netbook it boots up in about 30 seconds from the time I push the power button. It is very quick I am extremely impressed with this SSD when I get back from Afghanistan I will be putting a SSD in my desktop back home.
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. Web Browsing is limited to speed of connection but it pops sites up within 5 to 8 seconds (using IE8.
Summary: I use this SSD as the OS drive for my gaming rig. I havent had any problems with it to speak of and couldnt be more happy with it's speed. Definitely recommended if you dont want to spend a hundred plus dollars more on newer tech that's only marginally better (really? you don't have 5 seconds more of patience to wait for windows to load?) than this drive.
Summary: It has a win score of 7.3, which ain't to shabby for a sata 2 ssd. Corsairs site "Tweaks" will offload the work to secondary hdd. Win 7 ult x 64 clean install system includes fyi, and compatability concerns: M 59 nzxt case, 970A-ud3 gigaboard, 955amd M, Kingston 4x4 GB @ 1600, 4850 x 1gb, Wd 320 blue, It is formated to 29.7 gb and with Windows tweaked well, it leaves 14.7 gb still clear and ready to use.
Summary: Boot-up times, after the BIOS completes loading, on Windows 7 64, including antivirus program, averages 25 seconds to a usable, stable desktop. This is not an exaggeration: 25 seconds. Launching programs installed on the SSD does not get the obvious speed bump, compared to a fast magnetic drive, as boot times. But since the virtual drive is on the SSD overall computer performance is faster.
Summary: I chose the Corsair Nova over the well known OCZ Agility because of the higher read speed.... I have been using it for 3 days with the Fedora 11 Linux operating system(gnome desktop).... SSDs with the Indilinx controllers are supposed to work much faster with linux 'ext4' than windows 'ntfs' format....
