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.

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.

It definitely speeds up boot times from the old 7200rpm WD Black caviar HDD, though not hugely, and it is of course completely quiet in operation. Also it is good value for a SSD of this size. Less than fifty pence per GB!
However, when it comes to actual operation such as running anti virus scans I was surprised to see it was about the same speed as my old HDD. This is because the Random read/write performance is not very good (for an SSD).
You will see in the info on the product that amazon provides, random read/write speeds of 8k/2k. Compare this to a fast SSD of 83k/39k - 10 times faster!! (these speeds taken from the sandisk Extreme SSD). For many operations random read/write speeds are much more important than the sequential speeds.
So, in summary. good value if you want a silent hardrive that is somewhat faster than a traditional HDD.
But - if you want to really notice a huge difference get a fast SSD, the extra twenty quid is money well spent.
Which is why I have ordered a Samsung 830 to replace this one, I'm not giving my brother a PC that I'm disappointed with.
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.Read more ›
