Before this upgrade, a full boot up and shutdown might take nearly 10 minutes. The system boots to login screen in under 20 seconds, and then about another 15 seconds to settle down and ready for work. System shutdown us about 30 seconds. I had thought this laptop just wasn't a candidate for an SSD upgrade, but what a remarkable difference. Thanks for the adapter.
Re-Cloned the HDD > mSATA, reinstalled in the 700m and the PC has been running beautifully since. Not sure what fixed the original problem but its 20 sec to Logon, another 20 sec to useful work. Outlook 2007 takes a long time to startup, but then just fine. It's not as fast as native mSATA since its running thru the 44pin EIDE interface but its a much more useful PC and I don''t dread the wait time when I boot it up. I also upgraded to SSD Tweaker Pro ( $9) get the Trim function. This cost more than expected, primarily due to the software needed.
I consider the Ableconn IIDE-mSATA adapter an elegant solution to providing longevity to an old,still useful and I will say it, a beloved PC.
PS: After a day of heavy use I had another recurrence with the slowdown at startup and was going to revert to the HDD, left it to do the next day. When I sat down to revert to the HDD, just to check, I pressed power and the 700m booted up immediately and ran with no problems. I'm not sure what the problem was but recall an old item I read online: letting a PC with an SDD 'idle' before shutdown, say after Windows logoff, so it can reorganize itself. (Finnicky little devils aren't they?) Also my battery is only good for an hour + so the 700m is usually plugged in, which might get power to the mSATA before the OS is up. Either way, I am satisfied with the Ableconn, it did the job.
Well I also didn't have another machine with M.2 SATA interfaces (at least none that weren't also filled already), so I bought this to still be able to get use out of those drives in a 2.5" form factor. So far I am quite pleased!
My intent was to simply wipe the drives and let it start fresh as a RAID0 array. Thankfully this controller wipes the drives automatically when in RAID0 or (maybe?) JBOD modes. So I guess if you're planning on using the SATA port multiplier other setting that doesn't wipe the drives, be sure you have the jumpers in the right positions to prevent it from automatically zeroing out the disks.
Right now I just have it in an external enclosure, so it's not quite getting the stress test it could. But I haven't had any issues with it so far, and it seems to be plenty performant. The 2242 M.2 SATA drives aren't terribly fast anyway, but the raid0 does seem to ensure a little more consistent performance (though again, I'm not running the machine off of this).
I doubt I'll ever need to buy one of these again, but since I just happened to be in a situation where this would be beneficial I decided to give it a try. I'm surprised with how satisfied I am with this product.
