Other Thoughts: Just a heads up as that may be a deal breaker for some.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Adds pep to my system. Came with FW 1.4 installed. Lots of info in the Support Forum (also a con)
Cons: Lots of info on the forum support site, BUT YOU have to weed through it. Ultimately glad it was there though. Expensive for the size.
Other Thoughts: Glad I got some extra money for Christmas to purchase this. It's running in a Compaq CQ60-417DX. (my first laptop to tinker with) It came with a 2.2 celeron, but I've since changed that to a 2.4 Core2Duo and I've obviously added this SSD. The Windows Exp for the HDD jumped to 7.2. I also ran HDTune:

AVG: 185.2 MB/Sec
Access Time: 0.1ms
Burst Rate: 151.8 MB/Sec
CPU Usage: 8.9%
Real world experience: definitely faster than what was in there, but would I recommend it? Probably not at this price point and for this application. Still, if you have the cash to burn then its definitely worth a look towards the future. I plan to rip it back out and drop it into my iCore7 setup to compare.
Pros: Single best upgrade available tomake the biggest impact on your system.
Cons: Been watching this for quite a few months and the price just keeps going up....?????
Other Thoughts: it's gone up about 50 bucks in the past six monthsREAD FULL REVIEW
