Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Boot

Boot:
"What is this means is that in order to run the drive as a caching ssd, You will need to completely reformat your existing HDD and partition it as MBR (master boot record) which can be a problem with some UEFI bios."
_
"I had my computer fail to boot, requiring me to uninstall and reinstall Dataplex."
_
"I could boot into my Wubi (Utuntu under Windows) with no problem but could not boot windows."
_
"When I returned there was a message on the screen saying the system had failed to boot."
_
"A few days later I rebooted and it told me there was an error and couldn't find the boot drive."
_
"The boot times on my PC are definitely much better, great product, I'd say worth the price."
_
"The second time you boot up you will be amazed."
_
"It went smoothly, and I timed it, from boot logo to being able to at least scroll in Firefox without the Adrenaline, it took 8mins 30 secs, 1st reboot after install the Adrenaline and Dataplex, it dropped to 3mins 35 sec and 2nd reboot, it dropped down to 1min 2 secs."
_
"The 2nd PC became 'corrupted' in the middle of facebooking and I was forced to do an improper windows shutdown as I had no control whatsoever (turning off the power).Some other guy said he did this in the reviews and I figured I just bricked my PC but that wasn't the case at all Windows 7 allowed me to disable Adrenaline at boot so I was good to go."

Speed

Speed:
"Some things that speed up the failures:Using Hybernation sleep modesMore than a single hard drive installed."
_
"Although I would like to see faster SSD cache drives in future but this one is fast enough for great performance."
_
"Yes the best performance is all SSD but who can afford that when you have gigabytes of games."
_
"I would definitely recommend this to someone who wants to speed up their system."
_
"So, IF you're okay with what amounts to the new Apple Fusion Drive on a PC, AND don't mind having little to no control over it, AND you keep regular backups of your data, AND you trust Dataplex completely...it does give you EXCELLENT performance gains."

_
"The 2nd PC became 'corrupted' in the middle of facebooking and I was forced to do an improper windows shutdown as I had no control whatsoever (turning off the power).Some other guy said he did this in the reviews and I figured I just bricked my PC but that wasn't the case at all Windows 7 allowed me to disable Adrenaline at boot so I was good to go."
