Amazing little drive. I plugged it into my computer and ran the included software to transfer my existing windows installation over. It only took an hour or two. Unplugged my old drive and bam, works like a charm. From what I can tell it's the fastest 512 GB capacity SATA III drive out there so far and it definitely feels like it.
I was only using about 300 - 350 gigs on my old drive when I transferred over to this one and I'm using about 400 now for everything so it's not for those who have a lot of stuff. I've found myself doing a bit of cleanup to keep my free space over about 90 gigs just to be safe. If things get out of hand I might even look at getting a second one to use as a raid array but we'll see.
Overall, best investment I've ever made. Windows loads in about 15 seconds, games load in about half the time, and file transfers even over the LAN are faster. Highly recommend to anyone who's considering buying an SSD to replace their HDD.
