Windows 7: Show us your SSD performance

Been waiting on SSD prices to drop, so with Neweggs SSD deals last weekend I decided to take the Intel X-25M 80gig for a test drive.

Very cool upgrade, sorry I waited so long...

Another satisfied customer. It's unbelievably rare to find an SSD owner that regrets making the purchase...it's usually just people regretting waiting so long.

It's the biggest upgrade that I have made in years.

Finally got my x-25m 80 installed as boot drive also.
Absolutely worth the investment, Win7 was snappy with platter drive, but this is !B0oM!
Can't wait till more SATA 6Gb SSDs come to market, current ones (Crucial) are very $, my onboard SATA 6Gb is waiting for the chance.

You are right. the 128GB Crucial Sata6 is a little expensive at $450 (after rebate). Unfortunately they do not specify the access time. That would be important to know because for the OS, access time is much more important than data transfer rate. If that is not a lot better than 0.1ms, I rather go with an OCZ Vertex for $100.
