Summary: I've been using this drive for 2 years (only for the OS), and it's dead now. It froze out of nowhere, then I managed to format it and reinstall Windows on it (it wasn't even there in the drive list). 1 month later, it did it again. What a cr*ppy product, do NOT buy; if you do, be sure to back it up, because you will for sure have this kind of bug along the way. And, the plug quality is pretty bad, too.
Summary: A pleasant experience start-to-finish. Arrived quickly. Replaced the system disk on my Lenovo T400 laptop The SSD fit exactly in place of the original 2.5" drive following the Lenovo website directions. Buying the "kit" over the bare disk was worth the $20. The kit comes with a USB enclosure into which I put my original drive so I can continue to access the removed drive.
Simply amazing! Works wonders on an older computer, and makes it a joy to use again!

Summary: FANTASTIC. This is the first SSD I have owned, and I put it in a 5 year old desktop I built. My computer was running pretty smooth as I try to keep it up to date and not get junk on it, but the bootup was taking upwards of 5 minutes total - which had become very painful to wait for.
Summary: I am really happy with the 2 drives that I bought. I put them in old computers and gave them new life. Some of the new hdd seem comparable in the speed at which the operating system functions, but I have seen no hdds that compare on boot speed or things like video rendering with ssds. I have had the drives for about a month and am very satisfied, but cannot yet say if they will last.
