However, over the last 2 weeks or so my machine (which is also only a month old I7 2600K, 8GB RAM, Windows 7 64bit, ASUS P8P67-M-PRO MB with SATA 6GB/s) has been hanging for around 30 seconds to a minute, with increasing frequency... The event log shows that the "iastor device0 took longer than expected to respond". According to posts at several forums, there is an incompatibility / issue with the Intel Rapid Storage driver under AHCI. Removing it and allowing windows to install the standard Microsoft AHCI driver has removed the lock up issue, but has also had the effect of reducing speed to around 265MB/s and 125MB/s for Reads / writes respectively.
Although these drives have been around for a while now, crucial don't seem to either be acknowledging the issue, or presenting any options for resolution. Intel continue to release updates to their chipset drivers but even with the newest installed, there is no difference. According to the forums, the issue does take a few weeks of use to show itself, so if you do buy one of these, take care to follow the instructions and advice such as:-
* These are perfect for improving laptop / netbook general performance - On most laptops only memory and the disk are upgradeable. The disk is normally the area having most impact on file operation performance of course.Read more ›
Now this machine starts up in half the time, and Aperture flies compared with my old setup. Best upgrade for a given amount of money!
Returning to the SSD size selection. 256GB is too expensive, 64GB is too small and much slower that the bigger versions...128GB is the sweet spot. Moving from a 500GB to a 128GB obviously forced me to buy an external hard drive for home storage (in my case I went for a 2.5in 1TB USB3.0) and to introduce an improved backup strategy. This would be a nice idea for Amazon to explore (a bundle of an SDD + huge HDD for home storage).
After the OS installation the speed improvements were far beyond the booting time.
Everyone knows that booting times are significantly reduced and that does not surprise new buyers anymore.
As a Dropbox user with 25000 files to be checked at startup my previous hard drive would require from 30 to 60 seconds before letting me open a browser or any other thing without struggling.Read more ›
