Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Boot

Boot:
"I found that not having the bios search for a floppy drive meant there was not enough time for the drive to be ready and I had boot failures at first."
_
"Boot times for my machine are ridiculous, <5 seconds with this and a Sandy Bridge i7 running Win7."
_
"When my 10K rpm boot drive failed in my photoshop workstation, I decided to put in one of the X25 120GB drives."
_
")A saving of almost 26% on total boot time is not bad, but it's not as good or dramatic as people who have tested SSDs with Windows 7 got."
_
"The desktop's previous SSD boot drive had been a Crucial, which failed after a few years; the Intel keeps on ticking..."
_
"No more boot failures since."
_
"120GB is a good capacity for a boot drive."
_
"Well I just added this Intel X25M as the Windows boot drive, and the difference is like night and day!"
_
"Don't get me wrong, it definitely makes my computer boot up 50% faster, and programs load faster as well."
_
"I was able to boot back into Windows after installing the SSD in my old netbook."

"This is my second X25m, had a 160gb before, the main reason for going for that was 80gb wasnt enough on release, later intel released their X25m 120gb, which had the best price performance of their X25m line."
_
"After reading all the reviews from Amazon and other sites,I seen this intel x25m ssd for a very good price so I ordered it Tuesday and it arrived Thursday which was suppose to arrive Friday,I am a very HAPPY customer,thank you Amazon for you Fast service."
_
"I have Windows 7 Professional running a high-end digital audio workstation, and although I still use mulitple terabyte mechanical disk drives for massive storage, backup and archiving of audio and video files, I plan to buy only SSDs in the future (I yearn for muliple terabyte SSDs at a reasonable price).Happy Trails!

Speed

Speed:
"But by connecting it externally with a slow, slow usb cable, I'm not getting the benefit of the faster speed."
_
"As true with most of the laptops, harddisk has always been the weakest link in performance."
_
"The Windows 7 performance rating that showed my hard drive as the weakest link then showed the SSD as the fastest component."
_
"Overall no issues, still as fast as my past ssd, with very good reads, the weak point of this ssd is writes which are around 110 mg s, not as fast as today 3 gen of ssds (vertex3, crucial c300 c400, intel 510, etc), but for me the most important aspect in any pc component its that its reliable and stable."
_
"FYI, if you download the Intel SSD Toolbox, you might have problems performing a Secure Erase, depending on your BIOS."
_
"I'm aboslutely sold on the performance upgrade, and I'm also happy with how reliable it has been."
_
"Fast and reliable."
_
"Very fast and reliable SSD."
_
"They are cheaper, Much better performance and way more reliable."
_
"Thats the advantage of investing in the latest, fastest and reliable HW which I am now beginning to reap."

Windows

Windows:
"Interestingly, my same 2006 laptop has run Windows XP Professional (shipped), Vista (upgrade) and now has no complaints running Windows 7 Home premium, thanks to this Intel SSD."
_
"I found many people who were having the same problems while running Windows 7 64-bit but Intel were not providing any help at all in their support pages."
_
"You will notice a bigger difference if your hard drive was the weakest link from your Windows Experience Index."
_
")A saving of almost 26% on total boot time is not bad, but it's not as good or dramatic as people who have tested SSDs with Windows 7 got."
_
"When you are in windows is when the real fun starts."
_
"I performed a fresh install of Windows 7 64-bit without any problems."
_
"Installed this in a 2009 MacBook Pro 13 (2.26GHz) running OSX Snow Leopard and Windows 7 64-bit and it works great."
_
