Works really well 11/14/2013
Fast fast boot ups. Old HP laptop had a lot of software and background processes running (for work) so it was crawling,crashing and I was cursing.
Imaged old hard drive to new using Linux boot disk and dongle.
Handles everything I throw at it. No more lock ups and no more BSOD.
Could be cheaper. I paid $104.99 in Nov 2013.
This SSD is SATA2.
The SATA3 disks are cheaper and are backward compatible. BUT, after reading many reviews, it seems that when a SATA3 SSD is plugged into a SATA2 bus, there must be some overhead for the backward compatiblity.
It SEEMS that a SATA3 SSD plugged into an SATA2 bus is slightly slower than a SATA2 SSD plugged into an SATA2 bus.
So after reading many reviews, I opted for the same SDD/bus SATA2 level. Your mileage may vary.
