Very Significant Performance Increase
on 26 December 2013
Breathes new life into your laptop.
Proves that the Windows Experience Index is a rough tool - you won't improve your net score unless the hard drive was the lowest point. But you will still see big speed improvements, especially if it is graphics holding your score down.
From booting up to just about everything else, things are just quicker, and the laptop seems more reliable too.
Just be aware that this is a 1.8" drive, not a standard 2.5" laptop drive. I made the mistake the other way, so I think it's worth pointing out. These smaller ones are fitted to smaller ultra-light laptops and I expect Netbooks and the like.
If you are replacing a 160GB hard drive with this 120GB SSD and want to do so with an image copy rather than a rebuild, you MUST repartition the donor drive to be smaller than 120GB or it won't work, regardless of the actual data volume you have on the donor disk.
