Everything's faster than I thought it would be too. Crap doesn't randomly "stop responding" when I'm trying to do a lot of stuff at once. When I buy another one for my desktop, it's going to be a Corsair drive.
Duh.

It's like I keep saying, everybody needs an SSD. The difference is mind blowing. I guess it took this long for people to realize HDDs ARE SO ****ING SLOW. Even with an SSD, our data storage is still the slowest part of our computer.
