Everything’s a bit cheap on the inside though. Nasty black plastic. Was a bit worried I’d cut my fingers on it.

Along with the SSD itself, you get a copy of Norton Ghost (woot?), a digital manual, set up guide, molex four pin to SATA power converter and a 5.25 to 3.5″ drive bay.

Physical Features

Now this is real brushed aluminium for the casing. It’s black too. You’ll never see it once installed, but this is a good looking SSD.

I’d love to have opened this up to take a look at the interior, but I couldn’t find a single screw.

    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? ;)
