So Ive got a bday coming up and am lucky enough to have a 60GB Apex series solid state drive in the mail. I dont have a problem with it yet. Was looking for some feedback on someone who is running one of these 1st gen drives with Windows 7 x64. I understand XP do not mix well with these and they stutter a lot. Anyways write speeds do not concern me, but multitasking does. I intend to use it for installing newer builds on it and use it for testing, while keeping the RC running on my HDD Bit the bullet and changed my order to the Vertex series too concerned about the stuttering. Apparently the new firmware makes it nearly 3x as fast as the original firmware. Looking forward to testing some of the new builds on it..
