    VERY FAST! I have been running this drive now for over a month and could not be happier with it. No issues at all. I did a fresh install of Windows 7 when I installed it. Super fast boot and response of the drive. I am now thinking of buying another for my laptop.

    A bit strange comparisson between 128GB SDD and two 240GB. Or according to the aughtor the size of the drives does not affect the speed of the SSD? ;)
