The drive arrived safely, professionally and timely. It's small, fits perfectly in the HP Mini bay and is silent and cool to operate while drawing very little power. It's also the least expensive 1.8" 64GB SSD
The instruction could have been written better by a 2yo trained monkey. I suppose they assume if someone is capable of replacing a micro drive in a mini netbook, they don't need any instruction, so they weren't given any. Unfortunately the company didn't provide any ZIF cable either and the standard cable that came with the old drive is a regular PATA cable. The drive isn't lightning fast but it's acceptable in a computer of this type.
If you have an HP MINI, you must buy a mini ZIF PATA flip cable.....you can find them on e-bay but they come directly from Hong Kong or mainland China. Fortunately it's inexpensive and worth the wait. Once the correct cable is installed, the drive works flawlessly (so far, cross my fingers)

Arrived really quick in respectable retail packaging. The drive was pre-formatted for NTFS and ready for a Windows 7 image.
ATTO disk benchmark shows this little drive transfers ~10MB/s at the 4K packet size. For an IDE interface, I'd say this is up to par. Max throughput peaks around 60MB/s. Not the fastest SSD, but capable for what I need it for.
HDD activity light on my laptop is consistently running. I have 2GB ram, so I can't imagine it is swapping much data. This is also on a fresh Win7 Home Premium install. Because of this, I can't tell if it is operating at full speed or hindered by unnecessary activity.
