Maybe you got a bad drive? All the reviews I read states it's fast. Try running a diagnostics on it.
It must have been a bad drive. I tried it on other hardware with W7 and still no joy. XP and Ubuntu run fine. I thought it might be the copy of W7 so I returned it. Re-install of W7 and it was working. However, after about 43 hours of usage it started slowing.
I took the drive back and replaced it with another one not from the same lot number and replaced W7 again from when I went back East.
I am no longer having problems with it. It must have been bad lot numbers from Samsung and MS.
That is the only thing it could be.
thanks for the come backer. nice to hear results.
Your welcome. I believe in finishing threads with a result. To many threads with no ending around. Maybe this might be of help to others even as silly as it is.
Ill tell you what though, now that I have it working correctly this hybrid drive is really sweet. Takes no time to boot and works like a charm for editing, video, pictures, animation, database or however I can make it crunch hard. My only concern is it's life usage time. So ill keeping backups for a while.
