I bought this to speed up my old HDD. My desktop is a 5 yr old running W7 Core 2 Duo 3GHz, 4 GB RAM. Despite a completely fresh install of W7 8 months ago, it was still slow. After fitting this, turbo charged!
Pros - this will really speed up your system, For big tasks like a system reload or a full virus scan I recon they are only taking 25% of the time previously. Booting into Windows is a dream, again a fraction of the previous time. Well, well worth it. 5 year guarantee.
Cons - expensive. There are cheaper disks out there, but would they be as fast? Software with it is virtually useless - if you try and clone your disk with it it reports that the destination drive (ie the new one) is smaller than the drive being cloned, even if it that is only 35% full - there is no intelligent copy option of only copying sectors which actually have data on them. Who would have a new SSD larger than their old HDD?? So you need to get some 3rd party cloning software, or do a fresh install of your OS.
Finally, remember to switch off the Windows defrag - this is not required with SSDs.
