Summary: First, I'll take a second to indicate I'm no newbie when it comes to installing or setting up computer hardware. I've built my own systems, and have customized my laptop in pretty much any way that you can that doesn't involve soldering.
Summary: I got this drive to use as my Win7 boot drive and am very happy with it. It's fast and I have had no issues with it at all. The only other thing I use it for is my swap file, trade platforms, and web browsers which run much faster when I put them on this drive. I have around 20gb to spare too.
Summary: AMD FX 8120 @ 4.3Ghz ASUS M5A97 GTS 450 8GB Patriot 1600 Patriot Pyro 60GB SSD WD Caviar Green 640GB+250 also Caviar Green
Pros: Fast got 7.9 on windows with this thing does what it says no moving parts means no noise what so ever great in raid config
Cons: Small Storage its best to have at least a 500 GB storage drive because this thing will fill up fast but I already knew that before getting this so no -1 egg buy if you want something faster then a mechanical hard drive
Summary: Its still a bit of a pain to set up a SSD/HD combo. Hopefully, the next version of Windows will have better support so the process isn't quite such a manual labor intensive deal. The biggest pain is moving around the user folders.
Pros: Sped up my boot. Got a Windows 7 score of 7.1 for my HD now instead of 5.9 for mechanical drives. The Patriot rebate process was super simple and worked great.
Cons: Patriot firmware software doesn't show my drive, so I have no idea if my firmware is up-to-date or not. Hopefully this will get straightened out.
