- SATA II
Not bad 08/31/2012
Without doing any benchmark, the speed seem very similar Vertex 3 in my laptop. Where you see it the most is in boot time. This ssd is inexpensive and seems perfect for my sata II computer.
Took some time but got it working
All people that install this SSD should know that they have to put AHCI mode, IDE or PATA leads to corrupted partition after some time.
I did a fresh ghost before installing the ssd and did I do a good move there ? No because after I got my data corrupted, I learned that ssd needs AHCI mode in the bios and therefore I couldn't use my ghost but only a fresh install. At least I got my data back.
There is ways to transfer a IDE windows installation to AHCI on the web, something like changing the hard-drive drivers in device manager but it didn't work for me and isn't officially supported.
Remember to put your Sata controler to AHCI in the bios, it is very important if you don't want to be swearing later.
