Nvidia motherboard owners beware
Reviewed by Andrew H. Review Posted 01/12/2012

Rather than build a whole new PC I decided to give my current one a bit of a boost with an SSD.
The kit contains all the hardware you'll need for a desktop installation although you need to download the Intel Toolbox and data migration tool.
I noticed straight away a significant improvement in boot times and general snappiness compared to the old hard drive.
I then found I couldn't use the Intel SSD Toolbox because it gave an error message about being unable to communicate with the drive. I tried updating my SATA controller drivers at which point I noticed the drive was running at SATA I 1.5Gbps transfer rate despite my motherboard being capable of 3Gbps. It turns out this is a widespread problem between some SSDs and NVidia nForce SATA controllers, even with the latest drivers.
It looks like I won't realise the full potential of this drive in my current setup but it still makes things much faster.
