Where do you feel the Slowness coming from?, I am on the sideline right now.
I don't have a Sata III SSD to compare to, the 80gb XM-25 that I have don't feel slow in most cases (but I also only use it for streaming/browsing) except Start-up compared to what other people are reporting with Sata III SSD.
Consider getting an SSD for my gaming machine, but don't know if an Sata III SSD would perform noticeably faster then XM-25, if its just a small difference I would go with this drive for its know reliability, thx.
for me - the Intel takes about 35+ seconds to boot, whereas one of my laptops takes 17 seconds. That's from cold start up to being able to browse the internet. I don't really see a lot of slowness per se other than in boot times. Maybe it's because my desktop has a ton of stuff on it and the laptops don't. Either way - an SSD - any SSD - seems awesome to me when compared to a platter drive.
