5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Surface Tablet with Windows RT., 25 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this device specifically for using it with Microsoft Surface RT tablet. Windows RT does not have drivers for most USB 3G modems, but because this device creates a wi-fi network from a 3G connection, drivers are not needed.

Best features:
- 3G connection
- Web based administration, plug in, wait for wifi signal, connect and go to 192.168.1.1
- no drivers needed, USB is used only to power the router
- no batteries to charge
- perfect for car use or for traveling in places where wifi is not available (Italian hotels)
- automatic access point / gprs configuration.

Works perfectly with Windows RT, if you have a Surface tablet this is exactly what you need. Go for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thinkpad T61 - Windows 7 and Windows Server 2012. ..fast fast fast !!, 9 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this hard drive to replace the one inside my thinkpad T61.
I Installed Windows 7 fresh rather than mirroring the old disk, and then on a second partition I installed Windows Server 2012 with Hyper-V and a couple of virtual machines.
The performance on Windows 7 are great, Excel, Word, Powerpoint start almost on the click. Dreamweaver starts in less than 2 seconds.
Windows Server 2012 boots in 7 seconds. After 7 seconds I can login. The virtual machines in Hyper-V are very fast too, you can really see the difference between a traditional hard drive and SSD here.
I read that SSD drives in general die without giving you any advice, so I installed Symantec Backup Exec.cloud to backup my important files all the time.
Overall performance are great. So far so good. Warranty is three years, hopefully will last longer.
Another improvement is bettery life. My T61 is about 4 or 5 years old, and the battery life is about 50% longer now, compared to before changing the drive. Overall 10/10 !, very recommended.
