32 Gigs of SSD cache really speeds up an old WD Black!
Product exactly as described IF you read the description.
Adding this to my wifes system has given it the same feel as mine that really has an SSD.
Includes 2.5 to 3.5 adapter - see other thoughts.
Current drivers. All required screws included.


Risk of corrupting OS. The fix / workaround is not in the instructions.

Other Thoughts:

Back up your data!

Five eggs if not for corrupting my OS. I was able to retrieve all of the data from another computer in the Home Group.

The solution; and step missing in the instructions: Secure erase.

Here is how you want to install this.

BEFORE mounting drive in the adapter copy the Dataplex key code from bottom of drive.

Place drive in adapter and then in HDD tray.

Download OCZ toolbox.

Plug in drive

Using the toolbox perform a SECURE ERASE and then enable TRIM.

Download and install Dataplex software.

Following the Dataplex prompts mount the Synapse in the system HDD.

Follow any remaining instructions.

Click on Dataplex from "programs" to verify drive is working.

My only issue was a result of not doing a secure erase. After I followed the steps listed above I have not had any problems or complaints. All said and done I am happy with the drive and would buy another if I had the need.

Note; This drive will show up in BIOS during boot but will not be seen by Win7.

With the prices for 240 Gb SSDs coming down this will become less of cost effective option; even at $40.
