    Well it's a "collector's edition" :wink_:

    I hope no one is crazy enough to buy it at those prices.

    I am using the Windows usb recovery drive, not third party. Actually I have been facing similar problems back to Windows 8 when I used an external disk to recover my system. Yesterday I ordered a 128gb flash drive which will arrive this afternoon. If this recovery fails I will try to recreate an another recovery drive tonight.

    What utility are you using to create the drive? Follow these links to create your recovery image from scratch. If you continue to have problems let me know.

    I highly suggest re-ordering from MS. I got my tracking number this morning for the 2nd order I put in yesterday (still nothing from my paypal order from last friday)

    Is the benchmark free to download or I need to buy it. I can run the test once I do the swap. I have the drive just need to get to it.
  9. I had to do the exact same thing. Second try with Microsoft, ordered yesterday, arrives tomorrow.

    That write speeds seems slow to me
  11. Wish I knew that yesterday when they had some in stock.. I don't understand how Microsoft thinks that this is acceptable
  12. The 256 went in and out of stock at least a couple of times yesterday. I snagged one in the first window. That nowinstock site helps, as well as having Chrome with the auto refresh extension running. Autorefresh showed it for me the quickest if you are active on your computer anyway...

    good luck!

    dude, just get the 256. It has been revealed that swapping that SSD is going to be super easy.

    Call them. Ask them that question, asking it here will do you no good. Im just saying.

    That is my plan. 512 a lot sure, but for a laptop like this, even that will get filled up quick.
  16. It's free. It's called PC Benchmark in the Windows Store.
  17. I agree that's the same write speed I get on my 256 SSD on my desktop.
  18. My order number from Microsoft ends in 666, lol that must be why it's been a hellish experience

  20. I've called CS several times throughout this whole process and they are aggressively useless. These are the people that spent two days sending me canned responses about how my Blade was "coming soon" when I was asking them for the Division game code I wasn't sent.

    I'm hoping @Razer|Technokat might grace me with a response but he/she seems very selective with his assistance.
