Summary: This thing is super fast...windows 7 gives it a 7.9 experience score (the only one i've actually seen so far, for a hard drive)...I have a dual video card motherboard, giving me 2 x16 slots and only 1 video card so I plugged this bad boy into my extra x16 slot..
Summary: This is great for the money but don't buy if your not willing to start over from scratch. Back up all your stuff and attempt a fresh install make sure you do your research because not all motherboards are supported.
Summary: This card is fast. Not just compared to a standard hard drive, but to a SATA SSD as well. I tested it in a Mac with some 3rd party drivers and was quite happy with the performance. The particular unit I purchased was a "warehouse deal" and it was DOA. only 115GB of the 230GB was active.
Summary: This drive was a beast when I bought it back in 2010 before SATA3 SSDs hit the market. I've used it as my primary drive for the last 3 years. Not being able to run chkdsk has been an issue in that files get corrupted.
Summary: I have had this drive constantly as my primary boot drive and it worked fantastic all until a few weeks when it finally died on me. Been using it since 2011 November. Would say this was the fastest option out there compared to SATA connections, though keep in mind to check your motherboard's...
Summary: 373MB/s reads after 1 1/2 years of hard use. Writes are only 105MB/s which I believe used to be faster. I have used this with 2 different motherboards, both Asus and have had no problems either time using this device as my boot drive. Easy to set-up and works as it should.
