Amazingly fast. I put this in a new build with Win7 and it boots to login prompt in less than 15 seconds, and to desktop almost instantly after putting in my credentials. After optimizing my OS settings for a solid state drive and moving my profile to a secondary HDD I can't believe how quickly everything runs.
The only negative thing I can say is that my house lost power about a week after I first built my machine, and it totally hosed my OS to the point where I had to reinstall. I had not yet put it on a UPS, which was my fault. After a little research I found out this is a known issue with SSDs. Regular HDDs can lose power without losing data, but most SSDs cannot. Some enterprise-class drives have a supercapacitor which allows the drive to stay powered long enough to shut itself down gracefully, but this one doesn't. So if you don't have your system on a battery backup this SSD is not for you.
