  • Summary: I got this for a boot drive on my old nForce4 machine; however, it is not compatible with that chipset or Windows XP (random reboots, Toolbox inoperable, etc.). The drive works well on my Inspiron 1525 with a noticeable improvement over my 500GB HDD; although not as drastic of a difference as I had...
  • Pros: Quick loading times and good with anything that requires lots of random reads.
  • Cons: Overall performance is not much better than my WD 250GB HDD. Compatibility issues with Windows XP and older SATA II motherboards. 40GB is too small to load all my applications on it in addition to Windows Vista.

  • Summary: System, intel dp55kg with i7-875 and 16gb ram. Intel can not blame the support hdw, its theirs. Using the SATA II on the MB. Another note on the dp55kg, put your dvd r/w on one of the mbs 6 sata II and not on the 2 extra maxtor sata II. System does not recognize a tray empty DVD drive.
  • Pros: Easy to install when not a system drive, worked straight out of the box. Used win7 disk management to format.
  • Cons: Thought it would be fast, underwhelmed. Write/read speed from 1Tb blk caviar to 300gb velociraptor abt 100mb/sec. Copied files from velociraptor to ssd drive abt 44mb/sec. Copied same files back to velociraptor started at 145mb/sec, as copy proceeded I saw 92mb/sec. Since the SSD should be faster...
