Summary: User experience feedback: --------------------------------- I have a HP Elite-book 2540p laptop which came with a 1.8 inch micro-sata Hitachi 160GB hard disk, Intel Core I7 2.1 MHz processor with 4GB of RAM. Upgrade to Win 8.1 helped the performance improvement, but, it was way slower than my MacBook Air (Intel Core 2, 1.4 GHz) processor. After upgrading the laptop with the solid State Drive, the performance has dramatically improved.
Summary: I have been telling everyone that will listen that the best upgrade possible for a computer is an SSD.... however I feel that Intel makes the more reliable ones on the market, my brother got an OCZ that failed 4 times on him (yet he is still very loyal to the brand) PROS: Boots in a third of the time it did before Reliable - I have since moved this SSD into a new laptop, no problems Easy of Install - Cant get over how easy it was (maybe my laptops are easy to install...
Summary: I installed this drive in an HP 2540P whose OEM hard drive is known for being a dud as far as performance goes. I used ghost to copy the OS up and back down to this SSD. The copying process was exactly twice the speed coming back down. Performance is noticeably faster from the first boot. For someone who is looking to crank up performance in a laptop whose OEM drive is known as being slow, I'd have no reservations recommending this drive.
Summary: this intel SSD was sent to me broken. I tried it in different laptops but it still does not work well. I contacted with ganggggg to ask for a replacement but it refused to do so. I flied the claim within the 90 day window listed by Amazon and Amazon is willing to tackle the issue for me. Please stay away from ganggggg. this vendor has no credibility.
Summary: I got this on Dec 3, 2010.... it's not the fastest, but my laptop is lasting more and didn't have any problem ever since... highly recommended if you have a laptop and you don't want to drain the old battery up time... Intel makes great hardware.... not the fastest but they last long enough!
Summary: Installed on my Nokia Booklet 3G. Had to jump through a lot of hoops to get a clean install, but the result was very much worth it. Some netbooks can only accept an 18mm drive and this is the best upgrade available.
Summary: I bought a laptop with midrange specs in July 2009. It was a Dell XT2 tablet. The specs below will give you an idea of what I was working with. CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo SU9400 (1.4 GHz) RAM: 3 GB DDR3 1066 MHz Video: Intel 4500MHD Storage: 120 GB 5400 RPM HDD Clean install of Windows 7 Pro with McAfee enterprise edition (corporate antivirus packages run way faster than consumer grade ones) and a few Dell driver packages. Nothing major.
