I highly recommend this solid state drive.

Summary: I use this hard drive to load Windows 7 with a Duo Core 2 Intel processor. I have compared the loading time with my computer, which uses this solid state hard drive, and my brother's, which uses a regular hard drive, and I can say that my computer loads faster than his. I highly recommend getting a solid state drive.
Summary: This SDD technology is definitely the future for capacity drives. The drive is stable, has really fast read/ write capabilities and uses less energy in the process. With traditional HDDs becoming larger and larger, it is a relieve to see a smaller size high performance drive so I can dedicate it to my Windows and applications. 64 GB for me is the right size, though maybe for people who want to use it to speed up their loading times in games, it's a little small.
Summary: I purchased this Corsair P64 SSD to upgrade my system disk (previously a 10k rpm 300gb Raptor ). With advertised read/write speed of Sequential read = 200mb/second and sequential write = 150mb/sec, I expected to gain a significant speed increase over my previous system disk. After doing a clean install of Windows 7 64-bit, I ran benchmarks using Crystal Disk on both the Corsair P64 and my old raptor.
Summary: I just installed this on an Alienware laptop and was surprised at the difference it made in speed. I did a clean install with Win 7 32 bit. I was expecting speed, but not like this. Even browsing is faster. Much faster. Pages render faster, so it gives the illusion that I am surfing faster. In a sense I am. The only thing I am disappointed in, is I should have researched one more day on SSD Drives and I would have come out better with Patriot or OCZ.
Summary: I did nothing to tweak or align this drive under 32-bit XP. I did turn off system restore, drive inedexing, and moved pagefile and temp files to a secondary mechanical drive. But as for hardcore tweaks, I did not have the time. Nor am I running it to its potential. It's in enhanced IDE mode, no SATA or AHCI or RAID O. It has a ghosted image from the drive before it, so it's not even a clean install. Evan so, it's faster than the raptor it replaced. Way faster.
