Slow Delivery 03/12/2010
Was Easy to install. Formatted the drive with Win 7 Disk Management and then 'recovered' my Acronis True Image backup of my HD to this SSD. On my first boot to the SSD I then booted to the Win 7 Install DVD went into 'Repair Mode' to created to new boot sector for the SSD. The repair took about 1 second. Did a final boot to the SSD and it came up perfect. Used all Win 7 standard setup which is special for SSD. My new SSD drive seems to gain speed the more I use it.
Ordered on Monday at 8:30 am ET arrived 4:30 Friday ET. Went all over the SE according to tracking from UPS. Package was shipped from 'RMA office' but was a new unopened package. Down 1 Egg for shipping
Drive is physically very small, be sure you have some way to mount it in your case. I was able to get my C boot drive small enough to use this 30gig drive by putting almost all my program installs on the D drive. Also used a program 'WinDirStat' to clean out all the junk from the C drive. YOU will be amazed at all the redundant useless stuff that accumulates in the C drive.
Computer boots and comes out of sleep very fast. Win 7 now rates my drive as fast as my system memory.
