HP Pavillion DV5T - 2XXX WORKS GREAT - AMAZING SPEED

Summary: AMAZING SPEED. I used this to fix my wife's broken 7200rpm hard drive in her HP Pavilion DV5T-2XXX (Windows 7) and it could not have been easier. For fun I tested the start speed (power button press to usable start menu) before and after and the time dropped from 2min33sec to 42 seconds!
Intel SSD's are my drive of choice with 0 failures out of 20 installs.

Summary: I have purchased 20 Intel 530 and 730 series drives and had ZERO failures or problems when used to upgrade and clean install Windows 8.1 onto PC's and Laptops. Very fast, 730 is the fastest of course. But the price point on the 530 makes it very desirable to upgrade an old system at a fair price.
Summary: I set this up for my main OS (Ubuntu), with root, swap, and var partitions (not media files), set up as EFI partitioning. The system is stable, and boots very quickly. The best upgrade I've ever made, I think.
Dramatically improves Windows and application performance across the board

Summary: These Intel drives have been the single biggest performance boost for computers since the introduction of multi-core processors. We have several users who were complaining about the performance of their Adobe Creative Suite software, and these drives made a dramatic difference.
Summary: SandForce chipset, amazing compatibility, famous Intel stability and reliability. Is there anything I can really add that isn't already known or said by others? Well, I can try. This drive works great for "ancient" operation systems.
Summary: I needed an M.2 sata drive and this was the best deal I could find at the time. I am not one to run benchmarks, but this drive is plenty fast. I run a Sandisk SSD on an older laptop, and an OCZ SSD in my desktop. This drive easily meets or beats the performance of the OCZ.
