I have been using this drive for over a year now as my primary drive. I run my operating system and all programmes through it. I have a WD 1TB raptor as my backup drive. It was reasonably easy to set up and run but you do need to be au fait with the sometimes involved intricacies of your BIOS, especially the boot procedures and options. However, as this is a very niche product anyone investing in this marvellous device will or should be aware of this. This drive has performed absolutely flawlessly and BIOS and firmware updates have caused me no grief. This drive is insanely fast!! Even a normal SSD seems slow by comparison ( built a system for a friend around a Vector SSD around same time).... Word is open almost as soon as you release the mouse click that's how fast in the real world. 480gb is big enough for the vast majority of people so buy this and you will not regret it. And did I mention just how fast this is?
