excellent solid-state disk drive!

on 4/25/2012

I was running out of space on my laptop hard drive and I was looking to upgrade. Someone suggested a solid-state disk drive, and I wasn't sure if the extra cost was worth it, but I'm sure glad that I followed their advice. This solid-state disk drive has made my computer so much faster booting up that is as if I I have gotten an upgrade not to my hard drive but my entire computer.I would thoroughly recommend this product to anyone who needs the extra space.

very good SSD

on 5/19/2012

I was building a new high end computer and decided to get an SSD as my boot drive. This was one of the cheapest 128GB I could find. I really like Samsung products, read good reviews about it, and decided to buy it. In a desktop though, you need to get an adapter. I decided to go with the SILVERSTONE SDP08 3.5 to 2 X 2.5-Inch Bay Converter. Everything fits like a glove, and my Windows 7 Experience Index rates this drive a perfect 7.9. You should install the Samsung SSD Magic and run the optimization though. Without running that, my index was around 5.9. it only takes a few minutes. Very happy with this product.
