|I just replaced my old failing HDD on my laptop with an SSD. The read speeds are amazing and it takes only a few seconds to boot and login. However anything that requires a lot of writing will be super slow. Transfer speeds when copying is constantly around 1.2MB/sec.|
My laptop is an Acer Aspire 4810TZ running Windows 7 Home Premium x64.
The SSD is a Kingston (SSDNow) SV300 120GB.
I've checked that the SATA mode is set to AHCI in the BIOS and the SSD has the latest firmware installed. It has around 40% free space left.
Don't worry if plan A fails, there are 25 more letters in the alphabet ;)
