Daniel , Beccles, Suffolk Heavy media user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
-very quick, installed on early '10 mbp and has a read/write of 260mb/s (limited by sata2 connection).
-made my laptop feel brand new, adobe programs open in a few seconds.
-silent
-increased battery life
-would fly on sata3 connection I'm sure.
-cheaper per mb than most other ssd
Bad points:
-cost per mb (same for all ssd) but if you have the money, definitely worth it.
- If your on mac with fresh osx install remember to format it from within osx using external adapter kit (I bought a caddy for my old one so used this) before installing it. The mac wont recognise the drive unless formatted.

Timothy, London Heavy media user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I bought two drives fitted into 2 machines (Sony Laptop and Medion (MSI Wind) net book) easy as pie in both cases, and I opted to use EasyUs todo backup (free software) for file copy using my desktop, both systems copied first time AOK, Net book has gone from 80 gb to 500 with only a small drop in battery performance (run time), recycled both old drives into external enclosures to use for back up.
Bad points:
None, all gain no loss
