Not nearly as fast as advertised

Summary: Yes, it was not nearly as fast as advertised and only made the WEI: Disk Data Transfer Rate go from 5.9 to 6.1 Oh well, it works and it did help increase batter life by almost a full hour. It was cheap for the time, and is an update for my older laptop.
Summary: The product itself works fantastic. I got it to replace my ex-wife's hard drive in her MacBook as her mechanical drive was intermittently failing. Once I got this installed, formatted, etc., her machine works excellently. It boots up in a matter of seconds rather than a minute or more, and data retrieval so far has been instantaneous.
Summary: As this drive is a bit small for my production computers, I installed it in my Linux (Ubuntu) based home theatre PC. For this purpose, I have 3 needs: durability against high operating temperatures, quick wake up times, and quiet operation. This drive is satisfactory for all three requirements. As I learned just this month when the SSD in my basement server failed, SSDs can fail catastrophically. One minute, you have all your data, the next minute you have none.
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.
Ainda não vale a pena a substituição, mas já devemos pensar num sistema hibrido

Summary: Para quem tem uma boa grana sobrando e PRECISA de velocidade, pode ser uma boa escolha. Para quem apenas quer trocar o seu HD por um SSD, acredito que hajam ótimas opções a se procurar antes de partir para um SSD, que irá requerer um investimento muito maior por uma capacidade muito menor. Por exemplo, um SSD de uns 32GB (mal cabendo o Win7 e suas necessidades comuns) está mais caro que um HD bom acima de 500GB.
