Installed this on a Gigabyte i7 MB with Sata 6G onboard. Read speeds are indeed high, I ran ATTO benchmark on it and here's some numbers,
16k 117M Write 180M Read
64k 105M Write 292M Read
128k 139M Write 307M Read
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
12G Ram @1500

Installed this SSD in 15" MacBook Pro mid 2010 as a primary hard drive.
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.

Summary: The SSD itself in this package totally rocks and it worthy of 5 stars; the included cable and software got the job done, but could have more helpfully partitioned the drive for better performance. This SSD gave a lagging two year old laptop a new lease on life. If you can do a clean Windows 7 install, just buy the SSD itself (Crucial Technology 256 GB Crucial RealSSD C300 Series Solid State Drive CTFDDAC256MAG-1G1). If you must upgrade, then align your partition after upgrading.

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.

I purchased an Asus Core I7 notebook. The notebook was pretty fast, however, since i already used an old 60GB OCZ ssd drive on my old Dell computer, i decided to purchase a new ssd.

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.

This is first SATA III ssd from Crucial. It's lighting fast. 350MB/s read and 140MB/s write. No regret.
Windows experience index shot to 7.9. No hicups.

I was a very early adopter of SSD drives, when you were regularly losing everything to firmware updates for fixing huge bugs. I've mostly owned OCZ products, and while they're great for the enthusiast, it was never something I'd recommend to a layman to use. Installing windows with my last Vertex 2 was a bit of a pain, requiring me to format and diskpart the drive in another system first. Once it was up and running, great drive, very snappy.

With my tax money this year I decided to try the Crucial after reading a few favorable reviews and trying some of them at work for a database server.

I got the drive this morning (yay Amazon Prime), put it in a fresh system I was building, popped in the Windows 7 disk and was installed and ready to go in less than 40 minutes, which definitely included a coffee break for me :) Nothing special to do, no nonsense, windows found the drive, formatted it and installed perfectly. In the last couple of hours playing with the system, installing things, restoring programs and data, I can't believe how much faster and more responsive this drive feels even over the Vertex 2 from OCZ. Its certainly not the quantum leap from platter to SSD, but its definitely an incremental speed increase over the Vertex 2.

I'm using my vertex 2 drives as gaming drives from now on, this will be my main OS drive.

Buy this drive, it's amazing.
