5 out of 5 eggs Easy way to upgrade your system 03/21/2012

This review is from: Corsair Accelerator Series CSSD-C45GB 2.5" 45GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros:

-Loading/boot up speed increases 5 fold
-Easy to install: plug in SATA2 or SATA3 data cable, plug in SATA power cable, install software, reboot, and done.
-No need to reinstall OS or change anything in BIOS.
-Can use a cheap HDD that has a lot of space in conjunction with this and get a lot of the benefits of a very large and expensive SSD.

Cons:

-Can only use in windows 7, but not really a product problem as pre-windows 7 OS is optimized for HDDs instead of SSD.

Other Thoughts:

To give an idea of how fast things boot now compared to before (just a rough estimate, didn't time it or anything):

Boot before – about 45 seconds, after 5 seconds
Starcraft 2 before – 15 seconds, after 3 seconds
Warcraft 3 before – 10 seconds, after – 2 seconds
iTunes before – 10 seconds, after – 2 seconds

Everything loads about 5x faster, which is incredible considering the cost of the upgrade.

One thing regarding the software, the download page seemed to be bugging out a bit on the website. But if you leave the entire page blank and just hit 'download', it'll start downloading the software.

Also remember to write down the key code – large and clearly if you have to! You need the key to install the software and the it is on the drive itself.
