I replaced the stock hard drive in my Vostro V131 with this drive and am totally impressed. I used Acronis to image my hard drive and restored the image to this just so I not only could have everything back up and running in minutes but also so I can adequately compare boot times and system performance before and after.
While the laptop was already fairly quick, this MAX IOPS improved speed phenominally. Boot times (with automatic services etc loaded) went from around 2.5 minutes to around 13 seconds! IE opens literally as soon as I click the icon, a characteristic IE (even 9) isn't known for. Firefox load times improved too but not as dramatically as IE. Outlook loads in a flash and file copying to the SSD just rips! Actually, I think the only bottleneck with file copying from another source is the read speeds from that source. It even boots much faster than an iPad 2 or the New iPad.
The drive came with the latest firmware already so no flashing was required; I suspect why I haven't had any BSOD or other issues whatsoever! This SSD in a lightweight laptop makes a superbly winning combination and makes such a combination even more useful & practical than a tablet and cheaper than most Ultrabooks, which probably don't come with SSDs as fast as this anyway! So, all I have to say is: A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
