Summary: I was shocked at how tiny it is. I put mine into a Lenovo x220i and reinstalled Windows on it and made it my boot drive. I installed all software on that drive and moved my documents, music, video files to the slower rotating drive that came with it. The result is that you feel a big improvement in system performance and you never seem to have to wait for anything despite it only having the i3 processor. Boot time with Windows 7 Professional x64 dramatically improved.
Summary: This is a great little hard drive. I was able to easily install this into my new Lenovo ThinkPad. I use the SSD to store my Windows 7 operating system and program files. The computer came with a 320GB spinning hard drive that I use for data files only. The computer now boots up and shuts down very fast and I'm able to access program files quickly. Improved battery life also.
Summary: It was a true POC (Piece Of Cake) to install this in the PCI express slot in a Lenovo T420S. Two screws remove laptop cover, one screw holds this in the mSATA slot like a memory chip. Took all of 2 minutes. Just be careful to gently move the radio card wires out of the slot into the channel made for them (this would be where a WLAN card would go). I backed up the original 320GB HDD to recovery disks, then removed the HDD and inserted the mSATA SDD.
Summary: The drive works ok, it did not incldue any documentation so luckily there is documentation on the internet that worked as expected. I do not get the performance from this drive that I would have expected from an SSD drive but it might also be that I have not tuned it as necessary so take that with a grain of salt. I am actively using it and have had no issues.
Summary: This product delivers. When shopping for my new laptop, I struggled with the pros and cons of adding an SSD drive. With boot up speeds clocked at 30 seconds or lower coupled with a big boost in application loading, SSD is the silver bullet for any slow PC. The price tag will make you wince however. Not do you have to pay dearly with your hard earned cash, but you also sacrifice a big chunk of storage.
Summary: I've been through a number of painful SSD upgrades, dealing with all sorts compatibility issues between different disks and laptops, firmware versions, etc. So I can tell you from experience, SSD upgrades don't always go this smoothly! But this one did. I upgraded the drive on my new Acer Iconia W500 Tablet, which comes with only a 32GB drive. I pried the tablet open (this is the hardest part).
Summary: Installed on my newly purchased Lenovo T420S. Remove 2 screws from the back of the laptop, and you will see RAM and Wireless card, and the empty slot is eSATA. It was pretty to install. Restart laptop, press F1 or F2 to enter bios, and goto boot, there it is. system recognize this drive without any problem. Installed Win7, and the windows experience index of Primary hard disk is 7.7!!!, which is higher than my i7 desktop.
Summary: You know, this little SSD drive works like a champ. I bought the 80GB version and couldn't believe how small it was when I unwrapped it -- it makes you laugh it's so little. Plugged the 310 into the mSATA PCI mini slot on my new ThinkPad T420s, and it was recognized right off. I formatted it and used Acronis to copy Windows 7 over, then made the 310 my boot drive C: (Yes, maybe a little gutsy for a new SSD, but that's how I roll).
Summary: Excellent, so far very reliable ... it is an Intel after all! Only negative point, it is only a 80Gb drive and for the same price or even a bit cheaper, you can get a 120Gb drive. But, I have owned one of these 120Gb drives before and it broke down in less than three months so I went back to Intel.
