Summary: Using this drive in conjuction with an older 10k SATA hdd and z68 intel rapid response. Its AMAZING how much faster my machine runs with this ssd caching everything. I plan on buying a second drive and running them both in RAID 0 and just scrapping the old hdd since I have NAS for back up.
Pros: FAST, quiet, low power usage, again - FAST!!!
Summary: It's an awesome drive, installed in a brand new low-end HP DV4.. noticed the speed immediately! Considerably faster! I compared it to an ASUS UX31 my friend has with an i5 and ssd and I booted up faster than his and my programs launch at the same speed!
Pros: - FAST - efficient - low-heat - Sandforce SF-2281 controller - less than 25 second boot on HP DV4 Sandy Bridge to desktop - 550 read and 500 write speeds are QUICK.
