This drive is perfect for a boot drive. Running ubuntu 12.04, plug and play. Tested and getting 247MB/s write speeds without tweaking anything. Like the other guy said, know what you are buying and you will be happy.

Okay, almost at the two month mark, things have become slow. Pretty much the same speed as a traditional hdd. Spend a couple of extra bucks and get a better drive.

SSD's are the cheapest way to extend the life of an older PC/Laptop. I put this in a four year old Dell Vostro and reinstalled Windows Vista. Boot up time was cut in half. Office loaded faster and ran faster. I expected a better increase, but for the price it is quite good. Plus these are not high-end drives, so if you want to pay more you CAN get faster. But I didn't want to spend alot.

Bought two and put the second one in a Linux box (Ubuntu), and that speed increase was much more significant. But that's the difference between Vista and Linux.

Arrived quickly, read/write speeds were consistent with published rates, as I ran benchmarks to confirm.

this is just perfect! you can turn on or off your computer beside 5~7sec only. But make sure that if you buy extra mount for this, must check it's fit. I bought one but it was not fit. don't believe the amazon recommendation.

Corsair is good at all that they make, and this SSD is no exception. It is as fast as promised, and - although it is only 30GB - it was a cheap way to really speed up a system with a slower drive by making this the boot/OS drive.

Ok first off, this thing is going to blow away any records, destroy benchmarks or decimate your wallet.
What this does destroy is traditional HDD's at an affordable price. I used this in my budget build
for my media PC and I wanted it to be used as my os drive.

Two reasons, one for less power usage and faster application launches. I told store a ton of
applications on my media center, but its nice to power up and down faster and to launch my media players faster.

Price is right, installation and set up is as straight forward as a traditional HDD, just be sure to not run defrag on your
ssd's and you will be golden. There are further performance tweaks you can do to maximize performance and longevity. Trim works on these device so degradation over time in minimal.

I reached recommended speeds just fine on a standard sata 2. This drive is obviously targeted at those with a budget and no need or don't have Sata 3.

Pro's
Good Price Point
TRIM
Good OS Drive

Con's
Sata 2 - not the newest but not a flaw.

Know what your buying and you will be happy!

Bought this to replace the hard drive on my HP Mini-110 1026NR with pink designs. It has slowed down quite a bit and very annoying whenever I do any streaming from Hulu website. Along with a 2GB Ram, it just made my netbook feel like brand new! The start up was just a zip, when I used to just heat up my meal while waiting for it to boot up. But now, it was just a snap! Upgraded to to a Windows 7 Home Premium too, from XP. Highly recommended!

It installed fine and works like a charm. It's fast has given me no issues (purchased about 18 months ago).

Bought to use in a small "net top" computer/PC, a ZBox Model ZBOXHD-ID11-U. It rarely gets used, as its a "garage TV PC", but installation, operating system and function since deployment earlier this year (April 2013) - has gone very well with it, have not noticed any problems...entire system seems a little slow, but its a net top and I have no comparison systems to place it against - however, it works and that was the objective.

Currently sitting in an HTPC and has been running for 3-4 months, nearly non-stop. No complaints, no issues and it runs well. You do have to keep an eye on the remaining space, but it's not terribly hard to do. Holds OS & Music, 2TB drive holds games and videos.

I really was not sure about purchasing this. I have always used rotational drives and stuck with Western Digital, Seagate,Maxtor, etc. When I saw the price and the unfamiliar name, I hesitated. Additional research revealed that those other manufacturers are late to arrive in the SSD market. I checked other reviews and made the purchase...

I cannot tell you what a difference this drive makes in the performance of my computer. I have had this hard drive installed for about a month. I used to go get coffee and have the usual watercooler office time while I was booting my computer. Now I can sit down and start working right away. Installing new software? A breeze! Windows updates? well... occasionally they can still take a while, but 99% of the time you do not even notice them when you shut down. I would recommend this to anyone who does not already have a SSD drive.
