Definitely noticeable.

According to some benchmarks I ran it can be +160% faster than my old drive in some cases, but what I see with my own eyes in real world scenarios is more like +40% faster. Which is fantastic. (it's an old Crucial m4, btw)

Lesser bonus is it makes no sound. And I suppose that's because it has less parts like ball-bearings grinding together wearing out.

When you boot windows 7 64bit its finished loading just before the windows icon stops its animation, if that helps picture it at all.
