    I wonder how much improvement you will see with the virtual disk. (that's what it is still called, right?)

    It should provide a very nice boost to daily computing.

    I don't know for sure at the moment as i have not fully read the http://www.hardwareheaven.com/reviews/1050/pg1/value-ssd-roundup-october-2010-introduction.html its the very same ssd used in the review...

    I don't know if you have read the review either,If not the answer may be in there.

    But so far in less than 24 hours already Win7 boots up in around 10 - 15 seconds compaired to the wd hd i had..Around 45-50 seconds after the bios screens that is..

    Also every app i open up is very snappy too.

    EDIT: The F40 is currently £88 in overclockers.co.uk... So its certainly a good freebie :)

    yes I read it, but it's always nice to hear about it from a daily normal usage experience too.


    Glad that it also feels good :)

    While the price isn't too bad for the speed, I am kind of cheap on the matter of HDD £ per GB, so I rather wait some more. :)
    As for a freebie, it's an excellent freebie!

    Its about time Stu started looking after you Mig :evil: Fast boot times are the first thing i noticed with a SSD drive. Shutdown is also very fast;)

    Actually he has done so Chaos....

    Not to long ago i received a Razer Arctosa Keyboard.

    I also bought a a Razer Lachesis mouse and had issues updating the firmware (Win 7 issues) stu got involved.

    Then stu sent me this SSD (always looked at the option) but i never went with the so called speed boosts...Until now that is...

    As for the shutdown... My pc shutsdown in a max of 10 seconds...

    Also as Cow asked if there is a performance increase in games.... Even though i now have my Win7 and the important utility's os the ssd... All others are on the previous WD HDD (Just need to defrag)...There is a difference in peformance... As for the ones i have tried open up much faster..

    All i can say Thank you very much Stu (And the rest who may of been involved)

    This is a very appreciated Gift... :)

    BTW: Chaos some + Rep points has gone your way :)

    Ive got around 9gb left on my 60gb drive... most of its from "extra" bits of installations that go onto the C: for some reason despite another drive being selected
    Especially all the Autodesk software (Revit, Autocad, Inventor and 3ds Max is what I have)

    the Inventor download was 8gb in itself

    Nah, I know I have a weird sense of humour, I don't want either Mig or Stu getting it wrong. I mean no harm. :)
