I just wish to share a bit of BREAKING NEWS received today from TioFrancotirador, and with relation to his prior post in this thread:
Today, I had the great pleasure of receiving from TioFrancotirador a very friendly PM (in response to my question about his past experience with this specific SSD in the T42, with the eBay SATA-to-PATA adapter). I hereby take the liberty of sharing this PM (I'm confident you won't mind me spreading this good report, Mirek?):In [url=http://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?p=655020#p655020][color=blue][u]this post[/color][/u][/url], TioFrancotirador wrote:First of all thanks guys for your posts. They were inspiration for me to put SSD into my T42. I did it the way described in first post. However instead of Intel I used:
Kingston SSDNow V+180 64GB Micro SATA II 3GB/S 1.8 Inch Solid State Drive SVP180S2/64G
Here are the results from CrystalDiskMark 3.0.1:
Test No: 5 with 1000MB
Seq: 84.49 / 64.24
512k: 80.49 / 32.45
4k: 14.73 / 6.664
4kQD32: 12.85 / 6.898
Great news, Mirek!!! Thanks very much for sharing! I guess I'm gonna try get me a SVP180S2/64G - it has received quite good feedback at Newegg and at Amazon, and it comes with a three-year warranty and even support TRIM!In a PM to me received today,TioFrancotirador wrote: Hi,
I am writing this post using my T42 with that 1.8" SSD Kingston SATA drive. I have Windows XP installed on it. I did not try Windows 7 yet. I have not had any problem since its installation which was 6 months ago.
Again, thanks very much for sharing this very interesting and highly helpful piece of information, Mirek!
