I installed this with Windows 7 64 about two months ago. My apps and OS load so much faster. This drive made my main system much faster to sit at. SSD wil be mainstream soon and one of the most common performance upgrades out there. I highly recommend this drive. Win 7 64 and all my apps was about 30GB. You may need more space than 80gigs. There is a 160GB version available, but over your budget. I'll try and post some benchmarks of my drive later.

Hey that's great. You will LOVE that SSD. I'll post some benchmarks later if I'm too tired after work this afternoon.

Random bench of the Intel X25-M 80GB SSD. I was using the system while the bench ran, but the bench shows -1 CPU usage. Same for the WD250 SATA drive though.




This is the bench of the 250GB WD SATA drive on the same system for comparision. Simple tests, but they point to the obvious.



Access time reality check!
