Not the best, but good value for money
13 August 2012
Summary: Bought one of these recently (not from Amazon) at a good low price which was considerably cheaper than other brands of 128GB SSDs. It was supplied in the new plastic blister pack and includes a 2.5mm spacer for converting the slim 7mm SSD into a 9.5mm SSD. It had the latest May 2012 firmware preinstalled to address the write-performance problems that dogged these drives when it first appeared at the end of 2011.
Summary: ...but not awesome. Bear in mind that I upgraded from 2 7200rpm 250GB hard drives in RAID 0, so if you only have an old 5400rpm laptop drive you'll probably see a much bigger difference, but I can't say that this provided the boost I was expecting given the reviews of SSD's I read prior to purchase. My computer does now boot a bit quicker, but I suspect most of that is a clean install of Windows 7.
