My System Specs


Bought a Vertex a couple of days ago and it came with 1.30 on it.

Installed Windows 7 on it and it recognized the SSD no problems. I was not sure if it did at first, but I read on the Win7 blog that Windows 7 takes two approaches to recognizing a SSD; 1- if the SSD firmware broadcasts itself as an SSD, or 2 - Win7 will do some read/write benches on install, and if its over a certain number, it assumes an SSD.

Checking around my rig after the install, Win7 had the defrag turned off for the drive, just as it should for an SSD.
