Bought this for an Alienware M17x r3 and as soon i received it, i updated the firmware without any problem. I first installed it in bay 0 and computer started to freeze. This is a know problem for this model of laptop with ssd. I installed it in bay 1 and everything went perfect after. Reviews for sandforce ssds are mixed but in my case everything is working perfect so far and the performance is awsome.
I would definitely recommend this product to anybody who is in the market for a new SSD. I plan to buy another one (RAID config). This product was recommended to me by one of the associates at the Markham store as I was going for the vertex 3 and to be honest he saved my life because OCZ's have high failure rate.
Got this on sale price, seamless to install, runs great, very fast and good price point. A top quality product. I thought it was a pen that came with the retail package but instead it is an attractive metal pen shaped, small screwdriver, to help with installation. The extra HDD case it comes with to help with installation on laptops doubles as an external drive holder for my older Intel SSD. Now I can use my older SSD as a portable external HDD. Too many good things can be said about this product, it reeks of quality, wish everything could be made this way.
This drive is twice as fast as the SATA controller it is plugged into. My onboard SATA controller sits on top of a PCI bus (66MHz x 32bits = ~250MB/s). My benchmarks were showing a little more than 240MB/s throughput to the drive even though it can handle >500MB/s
Amazing difference in speed compared to mechanical drive. Everything just seems snappy in Win7 64bit. I Had to turn off the sleep functions and power management to the drive or I kept getting BSOD on wakeup. Been stable ever since. Seems to be a known problem with Sandforce even though it came with latest Firmware.
Summary, well it works great so far, but time will tell how it does over the long haul. Not a bad price considering these were expensive a few years ago.
I put only my system folder and applications and one user folder on the drive. Then used symbolic links to link to a large Raid array with the rest of my data. So far it worked great. This downloadable script made it way faster, rather than using terminal like I did last time: http://www.macworld.com/article/153437/2010/08/symlinkservice.html
I didn't notice how much faster this drive was until I booted up my previous WD 640gb black drive after using the kingston for a few days. WOW! The old HDD is sloooooow. The Kingston HyperX is a wicked little drive. It's hooked up to my ASUS amd 790 board, so only sata2 but still runs great. Now I want more spaceand a new board.
