Summary: Used to upgrade a Dell XPS 2710 and transforms boot times with Windows 8.X, having had previous experience of these bootable SSDs in an HP laptop. Kept the 1TB hard drive supplied as storage and ripped out the caching 32GB SSD supplied at the time. Intel Rapid Storage Technology coped with this admirably. Very happy and prompt delivery via the Collect+ service.
Summary: Easy to install on an Alienware 14 laptop (2 screws included in package, but only 1 needed). Works very well with windows 8, boot time is around 2 seconds. Increases your overall score with windows and you can definitely tell de difference between an application (game or otherwise) ran on a SSD and one ran on a HDD. Best thing I've ever bought on Amazon.
Summary: I use this with a Dell Precision M6800. It's much faster than the originally included 2.5 hard drive. Had no trouble getting the BIOS to read it and boot from it. I cloned the OS though and didn't install from scratch. Big apps like PS and Maya load up some 4 times faster.
Summary: Just fitted one to my Lenovo Y500 and what a difference. The boot time is under 10s now and everything seems to run much smoother now. Kept the 1Tb spinning disk for data and this one does the OS and programs. The migration was easy as well, Just need to make sure to partition the existing OS partition is less than the Msata and off it goes. Very happy.
Excellent little drive. Perfect for Drobo 5N or 5D

Summary: I put this in my windows laptop and it is blazingly fast - windows 8 boots in 5 seconds flat! After testing it there, I put it into my Drobo 5N NAS - it uses it to speed up access to all my files, and works great. As others have noted: It doesn't include screws, so you'll need to find them elsewhere (luckily they were provided with my Drobo). Overall: Highly recommended, but check that you have screws!
