Pros: Looking at this thing, it's hard to believe that it's a hard drive. It looks more like a narrow and long SO-DIMM, rather then a hard drive. Speed is OK, about 300MB read, 200-300 write. Perfect fit for OS drive.
Cons: I'd wish it could be in-par with my main Samsung 830 speed-wise, but I guess I'm asking too much :)
Other Thoughts: So my main goal was to enable Windows stripe volume to double the IO on my main two drives. The problem is, that you can't install Windows OS on a stripped Windows volume, and W520 comes without a hardware RAID controller if you ordered it without RAID. So, this small drive came to rescue - now all my OS stuff is on this drive, protected with Bitlocker, and my two super fast Samsung 830 256GB drives are in software RAID, giving me 1000MB/Sec read and 800 write speeds.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: speedy RAM for cheap. all modules are working just fine.
Cons: none, I guess.

This review is from: Acer TimelineU M5-481TG-6814 14" Ultrabook
Pros: Fast graphics, light, good keyboard
Cons: 5400 hard drive, 10GB RAM maximum, not 1080P display, hard to change HDD, 16 screws! Bloatware - fresh install is a must.
Other Thoughts: Phenomenal computer. Please, do yourself a favor - get fast 8GB RAM module and Samsung 830 256GB hard drive. This investment makes this a super fast gaming laptop on the go. Through away slow 5400RPM drive and 2GB memory module.READ FULL REVIEW
