Received the ReadyCache SSD today in the regular UPS Mail. It was in a plain paper package but inside there's professional packaging with a Sandisk box. Inside the box you get the SSD itself, a bracket, a set of screws, a sata data cable and the instructions with the activation key for the software. Installation wasn't the easiest thing in the world but that is primarily due to owning a Dell XPS 8100 desktop. They make it so hard to add things to these boxes that it took me about 45 minutes to finally get it right and even then it is sort of rigged. I ended up not using the bracket and just mounting it above the existing hard drive because neither of the available power cables were long enough. I suppose I could have purchased an extension but then I would have had to wait to try it out.

After installation I booted up and Windows 7 immediately recognized the drive. Was surprised it didn't show up as a drive letter so it must be formatted differently than normal. Anyway, the software was about 133 megabytes so after download I ran through the install which went through without a hitch. Asked for a reboot after and then enabled my activation code and was ready to go. Didn't immediately notice much improvement but that really makes sense to me. You see, this thing caches frequently used files as you use them. Basically you'll want to restart your computer again after enabling cache so those files get in there and then once back up you'll want to run all your normal software to cache those things. After running through 2 reboots and then running outlook, word, excel, firefox, itunes, steam and a few other frequently used applications I'm using close to 7gb of the available roughly 30gb.

The good news, the computer seems MUCH snappier now.

For those wondering, I installed this yesterday on my Windows 8 machine and it works great. I have noticed huge improvements in boot time and application launch times. My boot time has been cut in half. Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer now open almost instantly. Photoshop and Visual Studio both load in about 4 seconds. I noticed the speed increase on the 2nd or 3rd time opening an application So far I am very happy with this product. Especially for $50.

The only issue I ran into is that when I first installed the drive, my bios set it as the first drive in my boot sequence. This caused my computer to not boot. Once I removed the drive from my boot sequence it started working fine.

I installed it on my PC and move my Debian install from my SATA HDD to my new SSD. And it works great! Any program I want to run loads at least twice as fast now.

Of course, due to the nature of SSD technology, you should follow some guidelines to make it work right. Ask Google for that (I can't include hyperlinks here )

Just bought this a few days ago and have to say I am impressed. Boot speeds are cut almost in half and my wife's apps and web pages load almost instantaneously. I had some doubts initially but the little bugger works quite well! In fact, I'm not sure there is a reason to even buy a decent sized solid state drive, at least as of today, when for the price of say a 256GB SSD drive you could get this, a 1 TB hard drive, and still have money to take you're spouse out to dinner...Or buy more ram... 8)

I also did not like the activation code, but it wasn't a big deal. The software you install monitors your most used programs and then caches them onto the SSD. This caching process is a lot like Intel's Smart Response Technology, which comes with the ZX8 motherboards (possibly others, I'm not familiar with them). I have a ZX8 motherboard, but went with this product anyway. So far, it's working fantastically.

Installation is a cinch. Just mount the SSD onto the bracket, then put the bracket in an existing slot in your tower. Easy. On the first go around, I forgot to attach the power cable. Braindead moment for me, I guess. So, don't forget that.

The package it arrived in was totally weird, though, never seen one like it. It was a strong, brown paper package that the post office (I'm assuming, to save space) folded in half and put a rubber band around it. Nothing to prevent one from buying the product, though.

It is well worth the $50 I threw down for it. All in all, a solid four stars.

I've had this running for a week now and it seems to work really well. Installation was pretty straight forward, just go to the website and watch the video. I installed the hardware in under 10 minutes. Software install was also easy and it really does seem to have sped up my computer. Startup is faster and programs like outlook seem to open quicker as well. I was running a fairly high end HP desktop, but the SSD is a nice addition.

I'm taking this to 3-stars. When I first updated their software to version 1.3, it would hang my system. Seems like the 1.3 software didn't like an older SATA driver on my system. Other drives and the previous software were ok.

It does provide a nice and noticeable speed increase that is very easy to install - when everything works. If it doesn't work, you'd better be very comfortable tracking down problems with the system. For the $$, if you're tech inclined, it's probably worth it.

First, the description is outdated. THIS DOES WORK ON WINDOWS 8.

The SanDisk website has updated info and the new software is fine on Win8.

I didn't feel like reworking my whole storage system to put an SSD into it for programs and boot, and at <$50 this seemed worthwhile trying. I'm glad I did.

Installation is totally straightforward. Plug it into an SATA port, preferably a 6Gb/sec one, and plug in power, close up the computer, download and install the software, reboot and you're done. There are no real options on the caching software that you would likely use. (NOTE! This does not come with software. You need to download it from SanDisk so only do this when you have a net connection.)

Windows still needs to boot from your hard drive at least until it installs the driver for the cache. But once that is done, the process of finishing up the boot goes much, much quicker. Program startup is much faster once things are in the cache. There's no difference the first time you start anything.

It's unclear whether this is caching everything or if it is preferentially caching system and program files. It would be nice to be able to have some control over what gets cached.
