I read plenty of reviews about SSD's and have tracked their development for a year or two. I knew I would get one eventually. My Toshiba P750 started making weird noises and thought it was the HDD so I decided it was time to take the leap. I used EASE-US to clone my old drive onto this one. Took a while but it was straightforward. One "gotcha" was when I realised it had cloned my old drive exactly and left a lump of space unpartitioned. Stuff happens. I partitioned it as a separate drive D: and I use that as a Photoshop scratch drive. Works okay.
The biggest impact has been in boot times for me. My old drive took so long to start my PC that I could switch it on, go downstairs, make a mug of tea, toast two slices of bread (and eat them), come back upstairs and still have to wait a while.
90 seconds from power on to Chrome-ready... And that's loading Dropbox, Evernote, Screen Calibration tool, Adobe Creative Cloud monitor and Livedrive amongst other things. Fabulous... No hesitation in recommending SSD's and, specifically, the 960Gb version of this one.
