Summary: The product is great. However, the fact that your laptop comes with a mini-PCI slot does NOT garantee compatibility. Different manufacturers have different standards for mini-pci so, unlike regular size PCI, these slots are not compatible among one another.
Summary: I installed this SSD in my Lenovo Ideapad y580 laptop. I reinstalled my OS(Windows 7) on the SSD and used my old HDD as storage for music, movies, games, etc. My Laptops startup time went from ~30 seconds to ~10 seconds. Programs installed on the SSD startup very fast as well.
This SSD will make you fall in love with your PC all over again.

Summary: I have a few SSD's, this one is mounted onto my motherboard to take advantgage of Windows 7 Trim feature. The motherboard is a Gigabyte z77-U3HD. Only negative is I wish the mobo supported SATA 3 directly, was forced to purchase a SATA 2 SSD instead.
Summary: I've reviewed a 2.5" SSD extremely favorably (rightly so) before, but this little guy adds the extra spark of genius innovation that is missing from a "traditional" SSD, if you can believe it. Who wouldn't want an SSD essentially permanently embedded within the bowels of their laptop?!
