Its slow because it only has half the number of chips on it. OS and applications load speed (or how fast a system "feels") depends heavily on small 4k read and write speed & Latency (strong points of SSDs over HDDs). Will it limit you? Yes it will when compared against Vertex, X25-M gen2, etc etc. BUT when you are going from an older hdd you may not notice this reduction as it should STILL feel faster than your old system.

Like I said for single drive solutions go Agility or Falcon 2. OR take the risk on the V 40GB and if it doesnt work out....drop a 2nd one in for a "poor man's" 80GB X25-M gen 2 :)~
