Summary: Wow - these were such good value... $55,000 each, so cheap I ordered 4 of the beauties - one under each tyre of my Veyron, that'll stop it rolling down my driveway into the swimming pool filled with mac users tears.
Summary: My T400 was getting a bit sluggish with starting Windows 7. By the time I pushed the power on button to when I could work within Outlook was about 7 minutes. I've been doing IT for over 16 years. My system is clean and working great (just slow....). I decided to get the SSD to help speed up my system. I used Windows 7 system image utility to backup and restore onto the new SSD. Worked great.

Summary: If possible, I would RATE THIS ITEM 3.75 STARS I am using a Lenovo 128GB SATA 1.8" Solid State Drive as supplied with a ThinkPad X301 laptop (Samsung MMCQE28G8MUP-0VA SSD). The drive is very small and seams to operate with very little power. I have not measured the exact current (A) value, but the drive is always cool to the touch measuring 80.4 degrees F in an ambient environment of 74.5 degrees as per a KINTREX IRT0421 Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer (see photo).
Summary: The SSD is extremely fast and noiseless. Its speed is rated 7.1 on a 7.9 basis in the Windows hardware rating section. It's very easy to be installed. I think it really worth it to discard your old HDD for a much lighter, faster and of course a little bit more expensive SSD just like this.
