I got one of these last year when it was an Amazon deal and I've not looked back. My laptop boots from power off to login screen in under 10 seconds. Everything runs buttery smooth.

Make sure to update the firmware after installing. These are great value SSD drives I use them in all of our work laptops and desktops.

My old harddrive is on the verge of death. Ordered this to replace it as my OS drive. Perfect timing. Thanks!

What's an estimate of the actual usable space on a drive this size?

@huttowj: Meaning what? Are you wondering how much of the space will be taken up by OS? I can't answer that for you, since I don't know what version Windows, or even if you are using Windows, or what apps/programs you'll install etc.. But if you're asking about the different conversions used to express a GB, then this 240GB hard drive will probably show up on your machine as having 234.38GB because of the different ways of calculating a GB. Disk drives manufacturers say 1000MB = 1GB, Computers say 1024MB = 1GB.
