Perfect drive for a netbook!

I have installed it on my Asus eee 1000he with Windows7 and 1Gb stock RAM.
My system boots in 59s, it takes 27s for the logon to show. It shuts down in 9s. Microsoft Office Word loads in 8s.
I have installed Panda Cloud Antivirus to prevent a start up slowdown and 70 other programs. There is a tiny sign of lagging after I've applied the tweaks I found on G Skill forums to prolong the ssd drive's lifespam. You might call me ambitious since this drive comes with a Trim support.
I've read a great deal of reviews and the benchmarks for the 4K and 512K were much better compared to others similarly priced ssd drives.

My results with CrystalDiskMark 3.0 Beta2
read Mb/s Seq: 123.1, 512K: 105.1, 4K:13.62, 4K QD32: 27.05
write Mb/s Seq: 99.66, 512K: 106,2, 4K:7.96, 4K QD32: 8.02

AS SSD Benchmark:
Read Mb/s Seq:117.20, 4K:13.74, 4K-64Thrd:25.89, Acc.time: 0,265ms, score: 51
Write Mb/s Seq:106.14, 4K:7.40, 4K-64Thrd:7.26, Acc.time: 0,537ms, score: 25
tot score: 109

I'd definately recommend G.Skill Falcon II!
