Received the drive and installed it into my system. Changed the Boot sequence in the Bios and installed Windows 7. The new drive became my new C Drive. What a difference. The Boot time on my system went from over 2 minutes to just under 15 sec!! What a great surprise!! I left the old drive in place and am removing the junk from the old drive. I will keep all my personal files on the old drive i.e. pictures, letters, music, videos etc. With Windows on the static drive everything is smother and much more stable. I was running Windows VISTA and I know the Windows 7 upgrade helped my system a lot but this static drive is unreal. I have a couple of first person shooter games and I must say everything works better. Before you order and try to install one of these drives make sure your system is set up for sata drives, They will not work with in a system with IDE hookups. If you are not familiar with the inner working of a system you may want to check with a local computer store or you neighborhood GEEK!! Good Lock!!

This is the second one I have purchased and not disappointed. I put it in an Asus U56E laptop that supports SATA 3 and it always measures 475ish MB read and 277ish MB writes. On unexpected side effect with these drives is that I can read across the gigabit network at 80-100MB and write at 60-80MB. That is 20-30MB higher in each direction compared to the old platter drives. And one more observation, these things are addicting, you DO NOT want to use platter drives again after using the M4. It's really nice to grab a 3-4 gig file on the network and have it on the local machine in about 30 seconds (if that long) as compared 1-2 minutes. Oh, and the network is platter drives. It is simply the faster iop of the M4 to allow the platters to work faster. Hope my addiction is pacified soon. Peace to all. Jeremiah 22:29

I have used this for several months and it is outstanding. Crucial also makes this drive with a cable and software to move your present drive to this one and it only takes about 30 minutes and you are done.

My 7 year old hard drive was starting to get noisy. Thinking it would go any-day, I ordered the Crucial SSD drive from Walmart.com for $194. The only problem I had was my low profile desktop didn't have an extra SATA power connector to connect the new drive. An online search took me to Buy.com where they had the SATA cable kit with Apricorn cloning software for $21. Crucial recommends Apricorn for the data transfer. The cloning took 1 hour and 10 minutes. After swapping the drives, I booted up in half the time and it was silent compared to the old drive. I'm very pleased that everything went so smooth and better than I expected.

If you plan to put this or any other SSD Drive in your Laptop or Ultra Note Book. Beware that most Laptop can handle up to 9 mm in height your Ultra Note Books are limit to 7 mm So before you buy any of these drive make sure it will fit. If you can't find a listing in mm here go to the Manufacturer Web Site as they list them in metric As far as Desktop most SSD Drive come with a tray so the 2.5" drive will work in you 3.5" drive bay.

Not much to say on this it is my first SSD. It was easy to install. I used this drive to take the place of my older startup drive so I had to re-install windows, even the windows installation was faster. After installing Windows 7 Home Premium and all my drivers I still have 200GB free. I forgot to mention my start up time is about 4 times faster now.
