I bought this ssd on black friday from Microcenter. Of course the first thing I did was switch my linux boot to it and test how fast will linux boot. Linux boots in 10 second, which is awesome. The hard drive is very fast, which is very good.However, most of the java dev tools still take a substantial time to load and always saturate the CPU and I/O including Netbeans, which I currently use. On the other hand, google chrome seems to be the fastest to open.
