Excerpt: With the help of steam mover and a few 7200rpm 64mb cache 1tb hdds for your user files, game installation, and other media/documents this drive is enough for most Win7 install. I went with the 120GB, which is more than enough. The initial installation is very easy, though after there is alot of configuration needed to redirect various parts of windows to different drives. The speed gain you will get in return makes this well worth the time.
Excerpt: I only have SATA2 (3Gbps) ports so I'm sure I'm not getting the full benefit of this thing but even still...this has been a welcomed purchase. I went from 30 second to 1 minute boots on my 2008 500GB WD Black to 4-6 second boots on this thing. Programs open faster, but I guess I'm hampered by the SATA2 connections as they didn't seem as dramatically fast as people made them out to be.
Summary: Wow, what a disappointment this drive was. Mine came with the older TRIM-retarded firmware. I upgraded it to the new 503 Firmware which was supposed to fix slow speed issues. I ran CrystalDiskMark 3.0.1 x64 and AS SSD for benchmarks and this drive performed horribly next to competitive brands (like the SanDisk Extreme which is based on the same controller!
Excerpt: So I bought this on a whim because of a deal on newegg, and I've been wanting one for a while now. I absolutely love it, It comes packed in hard foam and the upgrade kit is phenomenal, esp the multitip screwdriver.
Summary: It is very fast but very flawed, I cannot recommend this generation of this drive. I have had to switch back to my HDD again to remain functional.
Pros: Incredibly fast drive, boots fast, loads apps fast, speed is better than any HDD or other SSD I have used. More than doubled the battery life of my laptop too. Windows 7 benchmark is maxed with this drive, and my co-workers were jealous of it.
Cons: Random BSoD, sometimes several a day. Data loss and corruption. The drives(yes, plural) ran great for the first couple months each, but then ran into constant problems. The first drive was returned defective as it passed all diagnostics, but would not even allow the OS to be reinstalled(by MemX). Slapped in the refurb when it came in a month later and was joyful to have my speed back, but a couple months later all the same problems started happening again. Firmwa...
Excerpt: doporučuji dávejte pozor při instalaci disku, SATA konektor nemá žádné jištění proti vylomení (stačí trocha nepozornosti při instalaci disku v kterém je zapojený kabel a vylomíte si konektor)
Pros: v PC se SATA3 je disk opravdu bleskurychlý
Cons: Dávejte pozor při instalaci disku, SATA konektor nemá žádné jištění proti vylomení (stačí trocha nepozornosti při instalaci disku v kterém je zapojený kabel a vylomíte si konektor). To se mi stalo, další s tím spojené obtíže jsou neúnosné. Nedoporučuji.
