Works - rebate may be iffy is you don't spend it a

by Bob on 12/14/2011

Rating is on item, rebate terms is a -36. It's in, works, makes 3 year old 775 system much faster. Copying disk to disk is much faster, even writing to memory pens is faster. Unzip is also much faster as are par operations. Temp and program files are on the SSD which just speeds everything up. Of course, boot is faster also but who really cared about that. I use standby all the time unless it needs a full boot to clear everything off. This killed the urge for a new system so it save me 800 smackers. With rebate it was about 180 after taxes. I'm not sure how much of the $120 I will get as it is on an AmEx card and it says fees apply so they may charge you 125 to use your 120. I like the checks. Direct deposit would be better.

Works great!

Installed it in my Acer Aspire Revo, no hastle at all, and boosted my drive index of windows experience to 7.5! Very happy with it. However, you need to consider a few things when upgrading HDDs to SDDs that independent of this intel drive andapplies to any upgrade: 1- You should only use a new drive with equal or larger capacity than the original 2- You should create a recovery disk and also a recovery image before taking the old one out of your computer 3- You should delete any unwanted partition (do not delete the 100 MB system reserved win 7 boot partition) 4- download and use the free MiniTool partition wizardif you want to do sophisticated things with your partition like moving and recizing 5- in case of Acer Aspire Revo, note that it isnot enough to just open the cover because the drive is screwed to the motherboard from the other side and you need to first take out the on-off switch and its attached usb module, then take out the fan and then unscrew the motherboard screws and free up the little plastic latches so that you remove the motherboard in order to reach the mounting screws!
