Other Thoughts:

A huge thank you goes out to the entire tech community and their help on countless forums. It was through those guys, and the splendid Newegg reviews that I found out about enabling AHCI and other necessary "SSD-checklists".
Here are a few additional tips I found to speed up boot time even further (I used them all, and they increased write speed on this SSD to the advertised 500MB/s, up from 250 MB/s):
- unplug as many USB devices from your motherboard as you can afford. For example, I only plug in the Apple USB charger when I need it. Same goes for my webcam and printer cable
- disable all boot devices except for the hard drive. For instance, disabling the optical drive as a boot drive helps a lot I think
- this may apply to a few people only: use the correct SATA 6Gb/s ports. My Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3 has two white and two grey SATA 6Gb/s ports, and apparently the white ones are powered by the Z68 chipset, the two other ones are Marvell.
- and of course the AHCI thingy =)
Thanks
