Summary: The SSD drive makes this computer introduced five years ago feel like new. I bought it a year ago for an amazing Black Friday price elsewhere, and later built a homemade Fusion Drive for my MacBook Pro with it and a 750GB conventional hard drive.
OCZ Technology 256GB Agility 4 Series SATA 6Gb/s 2.5-Inch Solid State drive
27 June 2013
Summary: The price for this Solid State Drive could not be beat. Installed it into my Pavilion dv7-7047 cl Entertainment PC by HP and the system is as fast as lightening. I would buy this product again.
Summary: So far so good. The machine boots in record time, MS Office 2011 programs start super fast (as opposed to taking for ever with old hard drive), and I see a huge improvement when it comes to disk usage.
Summary: The drive preforms as expected on a SATA 2 board. I would recommend a clean install of the OS. I loaded the OS using my image backup and don't believe I'm getting the full potential of the SSD drive, because of it.
Summary: My first SSD. As a user coming from HDD, i must say the performance is blazing fast. Read comments about device failurs in some of the reviews. So far no problems yet. Just keep my HDD as a backup in case sth happen (hopefully not). Startup/Shutdown times are improved dramatically.
