I had X-25M G1 before for a year 80G and upgrade to this model G2 and used the software to copy the drive over. Intel stands behind its product and I love its quick performance. The price has gone up though.
Great drive at a great price12/18/2010
Buy.com had the best web deal on this drive, so I couldn't resist anymore and finally pulled the trigger. Installation was effortless in Windows 7. I heard people had been having problems with cloning, so I just did a clean install. All my large programs and games load instantly now. I have seen copy & read speeds consistently exceed the 250MB/s mark. The only cons so far: Write speeds are mediocre at best (85MB/s) and the Intel SSD Toolbox program does not support this particular drive. Not sure why. I'm curious to see how long this puppy is going to last and if a significant slow down in speed happens over time, like they say about SSD's.
