Well, this replaced a Crucial M4, which was no slouch either... though I don't recall having measured it, I think it was rated somewhere in the 350MB/s read and 200MB/s write range. So, it's not earth shattering (though I have yet to transfer any truly large files).

That said, the old M4 just went into my wife's ancient Dell Latitude D620 (circa 2007) and that is a dramatic difference, even she is sure to notice (and she never notices anything).

Can't wait to see if she reacts at all when she picks it up next time. I haven't told her I was planning on swapping it.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
