    Waste of time. When these were running at 7200RPM yes you could tell the difference over a traditional 7200RPM drive, otherwise these are just slightly faster than a traditional 7200RPM drive.

    This will bench out at 5.9 for the Windows Experience score.

    ^ I wouldn't put much stock in Windows Experience scores. It's no replacement for a SSD but in everyday use does boost performance a fair amount over a standard 7K2 RPM HDD for the small price increase.
