Step up to SSD speeds and inject new life into your laptop or desktop PC with a durable solid state drive from SanDisk.
- Hard Drive: 240 GB
My friend came to me upset that his 2011 Macbook Pro was getting unbearably slow, so I recommended that rather than buying a new $2000 Macbook and having to deal with the hassle of reloading all his software and transfering documents, that he simply spend a tenth of the price to speed up the one he currently has with this SSD. I helped him do a clone of his old hard drive to this SSD and after that was done we loaded this in and turned on his computer, and everything was still there but his loading time was at least 5 times faster than previously, and his applications loaded almost instantaneously. He is very happy with the performance increase.One problem you may run into is that you may have to re-input the product key for your Microsoft Office software if you have that installed, as it is tied to your hardware and any hardware changes like this one will deactivate your current registration.
It is what it is. SandDisk has never been known for their superior technology, but they do deliver a considerable product at a much lower price than the top of line parts. Installing this in the custom gaming PC I bought in 2009 (and haven't upgraded since) has made such a difference. It truly is almost like having a new computer. Game load times were cut by more than half, and boot time is nothing at all. Thank you SanDisk for providing a great product that didn't break the bank.
Some time ago I acquired an Acer Aspire One D260. It wasn't running well under WinXP so I installed Lubuntu 16.04 LTS hoping to give it to my daughter to use as a first computer. The machine ran better under Lubuntu but was still sluggish at startup, opening apps and loading web pages. I recently received the SanDisk SSD Plus 120GB as well as a 2GB DDR2-667 (PC2-5300) RAM Memory Upgrade for the Acer Aspire One D260 (N450). I expected more performance improvement from the SSD but figured since the RAM was so cheap - why not.Wow, what a difference! The D260 is snappy now with power on to logon screen at about 20-25 seconds whereas before it was closer to a 1 min, 30 sec. Logon is quick, apps load fast, web pages open faster, the fan doesn't run as high and as often. I highly recommend this SSD. The 120GB size is at a great price point, and this SSD breathed new life into an older machine. The install of the SSD and RAM was easy and there are plenty of videos on YouTube which show the process. So far I'm very happy.
