I did not notice that. If properly operated, they should not. One thing to watch is that only Win7 (or programs running in Win7) write/delete to the SSD because it has Trim. If, e.g. you install a double boot on it where you run Linux or Vista or XP, the part of the disk that is allocated to the other system will get "polluted" and if later Win7 wants to write to that space, the write operations will take twice as long until all spaces have been once again used (cleared) by Win7. TRIM - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

What are the benefits of ACHI compared to IDE in a LAPTOP?

There is a discussion here of AHCI which might help you: Change IDE to AHCI in BIOS - Much better performance

You can see if AHCI is available under SATA controller settings in BIOS setup. I would try that setting first, then if you have problems with install use IDE mode. Are there any other settings?

Sorry, but I couldn't get a clear answer from that thread. I have an HP laptop should I switch to ACHI or keep it at IDE. I heard that ACHI causes alot of problems. What should I do.

Try install with AHCI first, then IDE mode if install fails.

This is what we recommend for install here with no negative feedback I have seen.

I run mine on IDE. That is good enough for me.
