Performance

Outstanding upgrade for older notebooks

by Stan on 8/16/2009

I bought this for better performance (faster bootup speed and program bootups). I know that the hard drive is really the only bottleneck in modern computers. Our processer speed are far more than most of us will ever need and same goes for RAM memory... they are abundant and cheap so it is the first upgrade anyone should do before hard drive... max it out. I installed this on my 2005 Gateway notebook with 1GB(maxed)memory and Intel Celeron M 1.6 processor. It is weak by today's standard but it is a good computer. Since my XP is not cluttered by time and usage, I simply cloned it onto my new hard drive with Acronis (free from website). WHOA! Before I cloned it, I thought I'd test from scratch... it completely loaded XP in 27 minutes... Usually this takes about an hour to do... I mean all the way to the end. It was blazing. So since I don't want to reload everything (in my case, I cloned it. This computer boots up in 1/3 of its original time... about 27 seconds. Software boots up instantly... control panel instantly. My advice is after you cloned it, run disk defrag one time... and then that is it... no more defrag after this. Boot up every software you use... the first time takes a bit of time since it has to map it out... but once everything is done for one time... Everything boots up super fast. Even simply browsing internet is super fast... blink done... blink done... Even the downloading was roaring fast. Remember, this is for WIndows XP... I know Vista is a super hog so I don't know how much better it would be fore those Vista user... has to be somewhat better but I don't think is as super quick as XP. Read More
