Hi, I've recently installed Transcend's 64 GB Solid State Disk (2.5" IDE) to my desktop. Now I'm using it as the system drive on my desktop with only the OS on it (Win XP Pro SP3). The start up is real fast and it takes only 8-10 secs to boot up my PC. The installed programs are working real fast. I do not find any considerable difference when i access files from my other HDDs. The difference in speed is only felt when i work on the data which is stored on the same SSD drive.
