Summary: Amazing difference in speed compared to mechanical drive. Everything just seems snappy in Win7 64bit. I Had to turn off the sleep functions and power management to the drive or I kept getting BSOD on wakeup. Been stable ever since. Seems to be a known problem with Sandforce even though it came with latest Firmware.
Pros: Exceptionally fast, quiet, cool and efficient.
Cons: Sandforce issues still apparent even with latest Firmware.
Summary: I used this to upgrade the performance of a 5-year old desktop PC. The kit supplied was excellent - including a USB3 external enclosure + cable. The drive was easy to fit in a spare 5.25" bay with the supplied adapter although I had to re-arrange the power cables to reach it position - but it was not a difficult problem. The supplied software did the job of transferring a ghosted image of my original boot drive to the new SSD quickly and easily.
