Summary: It substantially improved the disk access time on my computer. Would have liked more space on it but at the time the cost per GB was too high for me to want more. Nevertheless I put the OS and a few other things on it and used a second drive for data storage and programs that weren't used as much. Working real good.
Summary: I've sold the laptop that I installed this in but can attest to the fact that the laptop would boot up and shut down in less than half the time after installing the digital drive. I used the laptop to edit HD video and it helped that process somewhat also. Installation was pretty straight forward with no surprises. It went into an Asus G70 at the time. It also had a larger capacity standard mechanical drive as well.
Summary: Worked okay for a year, then died. First time I was able to get it operating by unplugging it but only worked for a couple of days, now completely dead. With all the lost data I'm not sure if I will bother with the RMA. Easier just to buy a different brand.
Summary: Generally, everything worked like a snap, quickly (half hour) cloning my HD. My only real complaint was that there were zero, nada instructions. Understand there are only three pieces: ssd, USB cable, and cd. However, it took me awhile to determine exactly how to connect ssd, mostly how to get power. A one page diagram of steps would have saved me about two hours, but now boots soo quickly and quietly.
Summary: I got this gem on sale, so it was a really good deal. Worked right out of the box - once I remembered it needs both power and SATA to function. SSD is so much better than HDD. Would buy again, just as soon as I run out of space again.
Summary: This is one of 3 that I have bought, after upgrading my main desktop custom built pc to windows 7 pro 64 bit and this solid state drive. It is amazing how much faster it is! Boots in less than 30 seconds! I decided to do the same upgrades to my laptop, and other custom built desktop. Couldn't be more happier!! Excellent upgrade, and 128GB is plenty of space for most people.
Summary: Pros: quick start-ups and re-boots, dead quiet, 128GB is plenty for us since only software is on it and all data is kept on a server. I expect that SSD's will be my choice for all future computer builds. I trust Crucial when it comes to memory chips. Cons: None so far... has been in service 2 months.
