Of course this could take a long time, so like the op said, if you could not wait for more than 6 months, then buy it now. It's the cheapest of this drive so far.

I am not worried about the so called controller switch - Sandforce controller is used in many top notch SSDs including some Intel SSDs, so it's not like the Kingston V300 switch.

Would I see any performance gains? I am running a Lenovo G505s AMD A10-5750 16GB Ram

If you are currently on a HDD, then yes you'll see radical difference like day and night. Generally a larger capacity SSD like this one (240GB as compared to 120GB) will give you better speed and longevity.

Larger than this? Currently i have your typical 5400RPM 1TB Drive, which I can tell is on the brisk of failing even though the laptop is only a couple months old.

no, 240GB is a pretty large SSD in capacity. I was comparing this SSD to a 120GB ssd.

I think 240GB is currently the sweet point between money and performance. 120GB is too small and 480GB is still expensive.
