I bought this in the hope that it might add a bit of performance to an old laptop. Running XP, the startup time is improved and applications load quickly, but when writing there are terrible pauses so the overall user experience is actually worse than with the old rotating disk.
I could only recommend this in circumstances where a traditional rotating disk cannot be used, either when you need rugged storage, or when you need silence.
