          Comments about SanDisk Extreme Solid State Drive (120GB):

          I've just used it for only 10-15 days which is not enough time to comment about storage devices, but I am doing so because it was requested by B&H.

          The product seems great. Computer performance has been increased and so far there has been no complication. Considering SanDisk's reputation I anticipate it to be a trouble free product.

                Pretty fast, reliable, works very well instead of the optical bay on my MacBook ... I'm just using the disk as a boot disk for the OS and the applications, which tend to be reasonably stable. My personal files are on a separate real hard drive, not sure still about the long-term realiability of flash drives

                          This was my first computer build, and it was a piece of cake to install! Be sure to get a 3.5"/2.5" converter bay to put the SSD in a desktop, though I'm sure that's preaching to the choir.I have all my programs installed on it, from Windows 7 and Office to Steam and its corresponding games. I'm getting a cold boot time for Windows 7 of about 7 seconds with an i3-2120 and 8GB of RAM. Powerpoint, a notoriously slow-booting program, takes under a second with this SSD. Absolutely amazing.Only downside is that I was not able to remove the power cord when rearranging wires. I ended up just leaving it as I had initially installed it, which was messy (my first build, after all!). That could well be a beginner's issue (I think I'm far too delicate with everything...), but I figured it'd be worth mentioning here.After 3 weeks of heavy use, the SSD has held its own. Be sure to check out some SSD optimization tricks online. It helps cut down on wasted space for such a high $/GB.

                          Comments about SanDisk Extreme Solid State Drive (120GB):

                          The SanDisk Extreme 120GB is a great value. It boasts excellent read and write speeds at a low price.

                          First thing, update the SSD's BIOS, if you can manage. I then installed a fresh copy of my OS on the SSD, redirected all the temporary/pagefiles, document and media storage to an HDD, then installed the applications on the SSD as well. You will also want to direct scratch disk on Photoshop (and other scratch disk apps) to a larger HDD. All of this cuts down on the constant re-writing of the SSD, and will probably add years to its life. SSDs have a limited lifespan concerning writes.

                          That being done, my system and apps load screaming fast now. Windows loads up in under 10 seconds, and Photoshop opens in 2-3 seconds.

                          This drive does not come with drive bay adapters or cables. If your system cannot accommodate 2.5" drives as it is (mine does - screws go in the bottom of the trays), you will need to grab an adapter. You will also need a SATA cable if you don't have an extra one.

                          Great drive at the moment! Check other SSD reviews monthly though, as this technology is changing quickly.

                          I'm using this for the OS and key applications on my machine, running a fresh install of Windows 7.

                          The only hiccup was that the installation instructions oddly didn't say anything about power supply -- I thought it might be powered over the SATA cable, and had to confirm via Google that it does in fact need power as well as a SATA data cable.

                          Running fast and smooth so far, no issues at all, and I'm pleased with the price I paid.
