Summary: I should have listened to the other reviews. This drive installs easily and does exactly what you want it to do.

Summary: I bought this solid state disk in order to replace a sata2, 320gb, 5400rpm in a toshiba laptop. Windows installation was quite easy by cloning the old disk on the ssd. After windows boot up, I performed some tweaks easily found on the net in order to enhance Win7 operation with an ssd disk. Laptop operation is greatly enhanced: windows boot up time is reduced by at least 30% and programs start very fast.
Excerpt: Было приобретено порядка 20 таких дисков. Сразу же были замечены дикие тормоза при работе. Особенно при записи на диск (например обновление антивируса, установка обновлений на винду или ПО). В тестах скорость чтения стабильная, но скорость записи скачет и падает, в самом худшем случае, до 4МБ\сек.
