Just like the others here I bought this SSD to upgrade the Slow and small 8gig drive that came with my Acer netbook aoa110. Awesome Improvement over the old drive... The read/write speed is crazy fast over the stock drive! If I had the Money, I'd a got the 64Gig!
This upgrade is for EXPERENCED geeks only! As others have stated you have to completely disassemble the netbook to get to the old SSD. I would also suggest upgrading your ram to a 1gig ram card also... if you already haven't done so. The Acer Netbook aoa110 comes with a 1/2 gig onboard Ram and a 1/2 gig DDR2 Ram card upradeable to a 1gig card. 1 1/2 gig total Ram!
I also replaced the stock mini pci-e wifi card with a new N-draft card. MSI MN11BGN Mini PCI-Express card. Old card would not connect to my N Router,but the new connects with no issues and the speed is up the 65Mbps!

Faster the the Factory installed SSD. Works great !
Have to dis-assemble the Acer to install but was easy enought, and definately NOT super Talens issue.
Be careful and enjoy the results ! Works great!

Amazing performance increase! Can't believe I waited to get this. Truly a night and day difference from the standard 8gb Intel SSD.
Nothing bad to say about it.
Take your time and make sure all the ribbon cables are connected properly. I had to take mine apart again and re-seat everything because I kept getting an error trying to load Win7.
Best upgrade ever! Reviewed by billy maurer from Arlington, VA on 10/19/09
I just replaced the lousy Intel SSD that came in my Acer Aspire One A110 netbook with this drive over the weekend, and the difference in performance has been night and day. Everything runs so much faster, and there are no more of the inexplicable lags that drove me up the wall. It like a brand new computer. The extra space is nice too.
Now, the installation process was a bit of a chore -- NOT recommended for the faint of heart, as you have basically disassemble the whole computer -- but that's Acer's fault. Also, the payoff has been 100% worth it.
One last caveat: as I mentioned above, I have only had this in my netbook for a few days, so I can't speak to it's durability or longevity.
Finally, a quick shout out: SuperBiiz got the drive to me very quickly, which was appreciated. Will not hesitate to order again.

I ordered this Blu Ray drive yesterday around noon and checked the tracking today and it was out for delivery. I believe it was less than 24 hours from the time I ordered until it got here, and the sh... (more)
