    "Fast !...Love it...the drive works excellent but had a little problem but Windows 10 would not show it anywhere except in the device manager I had to go into Computer Management to activate it so it was able to be used and seen as a drive in explorer...Only glitch was that old drive split drive evenly the C and D partitions and Acronis could not resize C. Used free version of Partition Magic to resize C. Startup is 3 sec to logo, 6 to signon and shuts down in 3-4 seconds"
