Very very fast. Coming from two Intel X25-E SSD's, this is night and day faster. You can read the benchmarks, they're all true. I'm getting about 654mbit read and 590write on CrystalDiskMark3. File copies to/from itself are blisteringly fast, I moved 6.9gb in 14,000+ files in just a few seconds.
Boots easy into win7 pro 64-bit on Gigabyte P55A-UD3 motherboard. Had to download driver from gigabyte, copy to USB thumb-drive, and select "have driver" during install. Just make sure "scsi" or the device is selected as boot drive in BIOS and there are no issues. I recommend installing OS with all other drives disconnected until OS is completely installed.
Pricey. Worth it, but it's expensive at $2.73/gb. Prices should ease down over time.
Much, much faster than (name something) via SATA interface. Silent. Leaves all 8 of my SATA ports for large 2-3tb storage drives.
