Holy Speed Batman!

J. R. Fude "Linux Guru", Amazon
25 November 2013
  • Summary: Holy speed batman! Data transfers make my old laptop with IDE boot faster, and seem more responsive than a new computer with SATA! Makes old equipment seem like blazing fast screamers!

nice drive

TiffAndNick, Amazon
16 April 2013
  • Summary: Have had the drive for some time now with no issues. Using it on an older machine running Linux that only had IDE support (used a 2.5" to 3.5" IDE convertor). Good boot times and runs lots cooler than the 100GB 7200s I was using. Hoping that it'll last another 5 years. Not too sure on the performance. The drive supports a Linux box running a home phone server (there's not really that many read/writes).

Good replacement for Dell hard drive

Globetrotter, Amazon
3 April 2013
  • Summary: My third disk drive on my Dell D600 was getting Disk errors on the hard drive again. So I decided to replace it with a SSD drive. This disk can be used to replace the hard drive on the laptop. No adaptors required. Just take out the old drive, removed the Dell bracket (4 screws) and IDE adaptor. The IDE adaptor just pulls off. Put it back in your system and reinstall the OS. The BIOS will detect this drive.

Buying an IDE (PATA) SSD for an older laptop

Beeber, Amazon
26 December 2012
  • Summary: I originally wanted to buy an IDE SSD, MLC for my older (but still good) Dell laptop. The price of the MLC was affordable. After reading all the reviews, which were very informative, I learned that people with Windows were having a hard time with the MLC technology. That was enough to deter me from buying that drive. The SLC, which was what I needed, was more than I wanted to spend. I continued to stop by about once a week to see if anything changed..

Just what I needed for a digital multitrack recorder.

Marcus, Amazon
7 December 2012
  • Summary: I have an older Korg D-16 multi-track recorder and it's harddrive was starting to crap out on me. The old drive was IDE which is problematic as most newer drives are SATA and things. I WANTED a solid state drive so that way the recorder wouldn't make any noise (no drive noise at all! Gee, I wonder why! :D ) and this little drive worked perfectly for this application. It was larger than the old drive (sad, but true) and obviously quiet.

New Life to an old Lappy

Marcus0263, Amazon
30 August 2012
  • Summary: My mother has an old 1.6 GHZ (no hyper threading) Dell N6000 and this breathed new life into it. I'm running Debian, using ext4 file system and it flies. No fancy graphics but with the new drive the Lappy is good for another couple of years! Worth the cost.

Worked great in my old laptop

Tim, Amazon
26 July 2012
  • Summary: I had a Micron GX2 laptop which had blown its hard-drive. After looking around on Amazon and other places, I found the Transcend 32gb IDE SSD drive. It worked like a champ. Fedora 17 is on the laptop now and it breathed new life into an old piece of hardware which I hope can give me a few more years out of it. The installation was simple, the drive lined up 100% with the original IDE hard-drive.

SSD Key Upgrade for Laptop

Mr. Bruce R. Freund "K7BC", Amazon
9 January 2012
  • Summary: The Transcend 32GB Solid State Drive works perfectly as a replacement for a spinning Hard Disk Drive to renovate a legacy laptop computer and provide a major improvement in performance. The IDE interface version of the SSD (beware that many SSD are SATA interfaces) plugged directly into the existing laptop cabling and took an OEM Operating System load without incident. Very high value upgrade for an Acer Aspire 3000. Next project will be a Dell XPS.
