Load times are far superior to rpm drive I have in my old system, and the drive is virtually silent while operating. It also runs the games that I do currently play Warcraft III, Homeworld 2, Unreal Tournament without any problems with all the settings maxed out and a little anisotropic filtering and antialiasing thrown in for good measure.
