Summary: I had to do a full install windows 64 .But I love it boot was almost 2 minutes now its around 30 sec .Programs open super fast I love it .Intel I3-3100 with GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 version1 motherboard.
Summary: I beat this thing up. Several reformats, a couple of OS installs, pulling down the linux kernel every other day. TRIM does need to be enabled, but it can take *some abuse. Also, if I could take a half egg I would. The case seems to be warping/oxidizing in a very odd way.
Pros: Stable. This SSD is not meant for speed, but for reliability. To this ends, it works wonderfully.
Cons: It is not fast by SSD standards. Also, it's tiney. I am not sure if you can even realistically install windows on it. For most people, this drive isn't for you.
Pros: Using this for a ZIL (ZFS Intent log) drive. It's perfect for this since my cache size is only about half of the disk's capacity and it's a huge savings over the older 32GB Intel X25-E (that you can't even buy anymore).
Cons: Small size means they are sort of slow - <3.5k IOPS for random writes isn't any worse than the X25-E, but it won't win any awards. Luckily the ZIL doesn't need high write speed either since we top out around 100MB/s.
Installed in a Lenovo ThinkPad X220 along with the 320GB HDD

Summary: Here's what I did: I ordered a Lenovo ThinkPad X220, selecting the only hard disk drive option available (a 320GB). I did not get the WWAN card option. If you don't have the WWAN card installed in the laptop, you then have an extra expansion slot in which you can install an mSATA drive.
Pros: I bought this to go with my 450GB WD Raptor Drive to run in SRT. You have to have RAID turned on in order to setup SRT, so don't forget to enable it before you install your OS. Mounted just fine in a 2.5in slot...
Cons: No issues. Price per GB is kinda high, but the memory type this unit has will be perfect for SRT.
Summary: Works great, people looking at this ssd should know that this is a MSATA form factor which is not suitable for use in regular desktops. A few enthusiast motherboards do have a MSATA slot but for now this is mainly intended for laptops with a MSATA slot.
