The numbers stayed pretty close to the 128k size with a max read of 324M and 138M for writting.
These test where done on an ntfs format with default cluster sizes on
Windows 7 x64
i7 950 @ 3.6G

Followed instructions provided on lifehacker: do a search on "optibay".
No problems were encountered whatsoever.
Used MCE OptiBay to house the original hard drive. Made the SSD a primary drive
I never cared much for improved boot time (though it does not hurt), but launching of the applications is INSTANTANEOUS.
I have an HP HDX18 Laptop with a sad little 5400 RPM hard drive. The laptop has a P8400 2.26 GHz Core 2 Duo processor and was running Windows Vista when I started the replacement process. I noticed my drive light was on almost all the time with several apps I run that hit the disk; games were also unplayable due to delays loading graphics assets. I purchased this particular drive because of it's awesome random write performance and reliability. The HP is only SATA 2 (3GB/s), but you're only missing out on a little bit more sequential read performance. My goal was to switch master drives and upgrade to Windows 7. I switched drives first, than upgraded.
It is best with an SSD to do a clean install of Windows 7; that will enable TRIM, disable a few other options, and partition the drive correctly on a 1MB boundary. Because I had lots of software installed and didn't want to reinstall, I opted for this version of the drive that includes an SATA to USB cable and software to transfer the old files.Read more ›
First, i ran the Passmark Performance Test on the computer i just bought, here in Amazon. I used it to benchmark the speed of the 7200 rpm harddrive that came with it. Then i installed my old OCZ and benchmarked it. Here are the results:
sequential read / sequential write / random seek + rw / disk mark (first 3 are mbytes transfered per second)
7200rpm hd : 66.7 / 88.5 / 4.58 / 577.8
old ocz ssd: 51.9 / 46.1 / 11.7 / 396.7
As expected, the random access even on this old ssd is still higher than in the new 7200rpm hd.
Now the results with the Crucial ssd:
crucial: 236.3 / 136.1 / 87.0 / 1661.6
As you can see, the results are far greater with this wonderful ssd.
What does this benchmark translates into actual windows speed? Everything now is almost instantaneous. With the 7200 rpm drive, the windows booted, then the screen appears, then a few moments later msn appeared and then some moments later the windows live mail appeared.
Now with this drive, as soon as the windows screen appears, both msn and windows live mail appear at the same time!
A must-have, 6 stars.
Ps: i purchased this drive because it was the third faster in this benchmark:
And the price was affordable.
Windows experience index shot to 7.9. No hicups.
That said, this drive is insanely fast. Booting or opening large files take no time at all.
I could have bought the larger model - 256gb, instead of 128gb - which has higher writing speed, but time spent in writing files is not an issue for me.
If you're tired of waiting close a minute to boot, that's your drive.
BTW, as of today, 10/24/10, firmware 2 is built in, so you don't have to wory about it.
