Summary: I've been using this in my laptop for a couple of months now. It's hosting Windows 7, some common applications and a couple of games. I put my old HDD into an external enclosure and use it for stuff that I don't frequently access. This configuration will work for most laptop users and so you don't need a huge SSD to make your system blazing fast.
Summary: I have this running as my OS drive for WHS 2011. I've had no problems with it nor have I update the FW. Whatever version the FW came with is what I'm running. I figured if it ain't broke why fix it. I do regular backups and another drive on standby just in case this fails and I need to RMA it. It's fast, specially during the server configuration part towards the end of the WHS 2011 install. After rebates, I got this drive for about $70.
Great drive. Not sure what the complaints are about....

Summary: I have purchased and installed half a dozen of these drives. All have been great. They get comparable performance stats to the faster drives. And they have all installed and run easily. I am thinking there has to be some genuine motherboard compatibility issue or BIOS issue, because I have not had one fail yet with the motherboards I use.
Summary: I have had this drive for a while now and it has been running smoothly. It has been known for its faults and ups and downs but I purchased the 64GB edition for £28. Put simply it has been excellent in my T400 and it is just plug and play and then install a few minor updates for the AHCI drivers. A couple of tips; 1. Setup AHCI in bios to enable extra features like trim. (Before Windows installation, if after it may fail to boot!) 2. Install the Intel AHCI drivers. 3.
