Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Boot

Boot:
"with the sata operation set to RAID On in bios, the post message displayes a smart command failure but boots into windows ok. performance is also affected to the limitation of my old intel ICH9R rom."
_
"Yes, some motherboards complained about SMART errors on boot."
_
"If you don't do this last step, Windows 8 will attempt to hibernate to speed up the boot time."
_
"This left it unable to boot and essentially meant my Acer was a paper weight."
_
"Windows, for example, is notoriously bad about having way too many tiny files puked all over the drive which causes hard drives to work hard to grab all they need to boot the system."
_
"Windows 7 boot time is maybe 30 seconds... great improvement from the 2-3 minutes for XP on the scorpio black."
_
"This drive so far has met and exceeded my expectations with literally a 10 second boot up in to Windows Pro 7."
_
"Very nice improvement in speed of not only the boot up but also all the apps seem to pop right up when clicked on."
_
"Given the silence and speed, it makes a great boot drive for running Windows, Photoshop, and other programs where speed is a huge advantage."
_
"The boot up speed is great and it doesn't seem nearly as sluggish as it did with my old drive."
