I have recently bought this 128GB Sandisk Pulse SSD earlier this year, the intended use was to replace the stock SATA II hard drive in an Acer 3810TZ laptop. All of which I have done now and what a difference! from the power on button to desktop screen after all passwords is now done in less than 40 seconds, applications run faster and the lag effect has all gone, battery life is now much improved as well. This is a perfect example of the use of an SSD, you will not regret it!

How did I do it?
I used the OEM version of Windows 7 on the laptop and backed up the software as you would to create your rescue discs, did a clean install on to the SSD and this was done without even burning any DVD discs.

1. Run your laptop and use your browser to search for and install the 30 day free version of Virtual CD, this allows you to mount a virtual DVD burner. Read the instructions, but basically you create a blank virtual DVD and mount it in the virtual burner.
2. Run from your start button the Acer folder> Recovery> Acer recovery program > Create factory default disc. Follow the instructions, but first of all look to see how large the recovery data files are (mine was 8.5GB)
3. Go back to Virtual CD, go and create a new blank ISO DVD disc, but change the size of the disc to a larger capacity (I did 13.4GB ish) Since it's virtual you can custom select a larger disc more than 4.7GB, this way it's all done in one step. Mount the disc into the virtual DVD burner
4. Now go back to the recovery program, select the DVD burner/disc that is now available and run the Create factory default disc process.

After a bit of research I found that an SSD can improve load times and general performance in some PS3 games- specifically Final Fantasy XIV. Due to the older SATA interface on the PS3 it wouldn't benefit from the absolute best available- any modern SSD should max it out and this one does exactly that quite cheaply.

Load times in Final Fantasy XIV have noticeably improved and are not far off from my high-end gaming PC. I bought 2 for my two PS3s and they have both been working flawlessly so far. With the 3 year warranty I'm sure both SSDs will outlive the PS3 they are paired with.

Please note that very few PS3 games will benefit from an SSD upgrade. Do a bit of research- you might find that the games you play won't run any better with an SSD.

Ordered the 128GB harddrive directly from amazon. Item received was a 2nd hand drive.

I've seen previous reviews saying the same thing, but it finally happened to me. The drive came with Windows 7 pre-installed and the user "Titan". There was also GTA game installed and some family pictures. I was even able to obtain the Windows 7 Key.

I'am pretty sure that selling second hand drives with Windows 7 pre-installed is illegal, never mind the false advertising.

OK, this is not for those looking for the very best. It looks really cheap and plastic compared to the sleek Samsung 830 I bought at the same time and probably doesn't perform in the same benchmark league either. Nor are there any accessories of any type in the box. Frankly, I don't care about the numbers, all I am worried about is the real world results.

I bought it to try and revive a 6-7 year old Toshiba Satellite Pro L20 with a Centrino single core 1.73Ghz processor running XP Home and a SATA 1 40Gb hard drive. The laptop hardly got used because it just took too long to boot - easily 10-15 minutes, and was extremely sluggish after that.

I've been toying with the idea of trying an SSD and when the Sandisk 64gb appeared in the Amazon flash sale, I thought I would give it a go. On connecting to the computer with the USB to SATA cable supplied with the Samsung, I was concerned to see no recognition of the SSD. I then tried my Windows 7 desktop and realised it needed to be initialised before formatting so I let Windows 7 do the honours. (From numerous comments on the web, I understand Windows 7 does a better job of formatting an SSD than XP so this is the preferred option).

Back to the laptop and I downloaded the free version of Macrium Reflect to clone the hard drive. After 3 attempts, this did not work so I then tried the EaseUS Disk Copy Freeware. On installation, this prompted the creation of a boot CD which then needs the computer to be restarted and enter the boot menu at POST (press F12 immediately after starting the computer) and select boot from CD/DVD drive. EaseUS fired up and cloned the disk without a problem and the resulting cloned SSD worked perfectly. Note that the transfer rate over USB2 was around 1.
