Summary: I bought two of these six months ago, one for me and one for a family member and we are both very satisfied with this SSD. This is my first SSD and with windows installed on it my pc boots in seconds!
Summary: I bought two of these drives and put them in RAID 0 to replace a failing mechanical hard drive. I noticed a speed increase since day one and will never go back to using a mechanical hard drive as a boot drive. The only thing I don't like is that the finish holds on to fingerprints very well, but that's on the inside of the computer anyway so it's not noticeable.
Summary: Very fast drive, used it in an AMD build for a friend. Very good response time. I find my crucial drive boots up windows a but quicker but that's about it. Got a great deal 109$ sale on black Friday so can't complain for the price. Highly recommended if bought at a good price!!
