Win7 Ultimate 64-bit 10 sec
Firefox load time <1 sec, almost instant!
Microsoft Word 2010 1 sec
Adobe Photoshop CS5 3 sec
Sony Vegas 10 5 sec

Other Thoughts: You can't go wrong with this drive.
This is my first time interacting in details with a SSD drive and I can say it trow me in a different world of personal computing. I've always trusted Corsair products for their quality and reliability and so did this time. I can't be happier, hope it will last.
Make sure you setup your windows settings manually for SSD drive (search Google), it's very important for the best speed and drive's life span
Pros: AMD, Blazing fast, high performance, real quad core, unlocked multiplier
Cons: Price, 43C idle on stock speed with stock cooler and Arctic Silver 5
Other Thoughts: If you are going to use the stock cooler, wipe the stock thermal compound and use Arctic Silver 5 for lower idle/load temps. If you plan to overclock, you better get Zalman coolerREAD FULL REVIEW
