It did not boot
O. Markarian, Amazon
21 April 2012
Summary: I returned the drive because my 2004 HP zv5000 could not recognize it at boot up. Otherwise, the drive appeared to function normally. This drive, worked great: http://www.amazon.com/KingSpec-Solid-State-SM2235-Controller/dp/B0049AAMJ6/ref=sr_1_2?
Summary: ****WARNING**** Not for Novices! It works for XP but not without MAJOR Tweaking. As others have said the drive may work better for Linux than Windows. I did not try it on Linux myself but I did install it on an older style Dell Laptop with an XP OS. After doing some major Tweaking of the Windows XP OS to get this to run better, I still see the slowness on large file downloads or transfers.
Summary: I got this SSD to replace the old HD in my Thinkpad T60. Because T60 has a limit on the SATA connection, I didnt expect to get a high end level SSD. When I found this one in mWaves must go deal, I shoot it at a reasonable price. The performance is ok for windows xp, but I dont feel too much improvement. If you dont see a deal, just ignore it and I am sure you can get another much better SSD at a lower price.
Pros: Entry level SSD, quiet. Not bad for replacement of the old hard drive in an old model laptop, if you can get it at a reasonable price. Also its price is not sweet everywhere.
Cons: speed is ok, but didnt feel too much improvement
Summary: Lo compre para dotar de un arranque mas rapido a mi viejo portatil, arranque muy rapido, las aplicaciones se inician de inmediato. Seguramente hoy en día seria mas necesario uno de 120 o 128 GB, pero cuando lo compre estaba a 40,99 € y era mas que suficiente para mis necesidades.
