Fast when it is recognized by bios. Newegg took care of the problem! Without Newegg return try at your own risk with this firmware.....
Installed in one year old Acer Aspire One, and (latest) Bios will not recognize drive. Every cold boot there is no drive recognized. After entering, leaving bios, a warm reboot recognizes. Sandisk tech support pretty hopeless. After a lot of info passed to them, they said, probably incompatible. So sorry......My conclusion is that it is likely a SSD firmware issue (R1311), but they would not admit, just offered to replace, with the comment that replacement probably would not solve problem. No offer to resolve the firmware issue. Fortunately Newegg worked the problem, otherwise it would be a silicon paperweight.
The SSD was tested in a desktop and was recognized, although there are numerous web reports that Sandisk Extreme (not Extreme 2) was installed successfully in the Aspire One model AO722 netbook.
Sandisk products are generally great, but their tech support in this case was a waste of time (with over 7 hours invested on my part)...with no real solutions offered. Their final comment "We did try to provide you the best possible resolution at the moment. But since it is not up to your expectation, we are moving ahead with cancelling the RMA for you are choosing to return the SSD to the place of purchase. Please contact us in case of any further assistance sought."
What kind of help is that after stating replacement probably would not solve the issue? - How about looking into the firmware?
