    160gb 320 ssd replaced 5400rpm toshiba drive no difference in performance.


      I bought a 160gb intel 320 ssd to replace 1 of the hdd's in my hp dv7-6195us Laptop. I used the Intel migration software which worked great, the computer works fine, the only problem is that is works exactly as it did before installing the SSD. The replaced drive was a 500gb Toshiba 5400 drive. I was expecting programs to snap open but I am stuck with a third the storage space with no noticable increased performance. The windows experience is the only thing that change, it now says 7.6 for hdd vs. the previous 5.9.

      I don't know if there is something I missed or if this is just what i should be expecting, I am rather dissapointed in spending nearly $300 for what seems to be nothing. I hope someone here can offer some advice.
