I just finally found some extra money I purchased OCZ Agility 3 240GB SSD.
And frankly speaking I'm a little disappointed.
Althoguh it's nice to boot up in 10-12s, I hardly see improvements in speed and access time.
I did all the tricks to improve SSD performance (installed latest Intel Rapid Storage drivers, disabled windows search, prefetch and defrag) and so far I see just a small differences in startup of Outlook and Live Mail programs. IE and other Office apps start almost in the same time - even Skype seems to be same responsive as with HDD.
My final thoughts are:
1. Toshiba did really bad thing not utilizing SATA III ports in Intel's controller (QM67 offers by default 3 and 6Gbps interfaces). I wouldn't be surprised with such thing in cheap Satellite models ... but hey guys - it's Portege! It should be no-compromise business laptop! Why performance of my SSD has to be limited to its 50-60%?!
2. Default Hitachi 500Gig HDD is not that bad - I would even it's not much worse than SSD (really!)
3. I'm happy that I didn't bought top-end model from Intel/Samsung/Crucial - I'd be even more disappointed.
For benchark fans (R/W speeds from AS-SSD):
If you have any ideas how to get more power out of it, it'd be very grateful.
