The SSD Advantage

Whether you're refreshing an older laptop or trying to maximize the potential of the latest platform, SSDs provide substantial benefits over traditional hard drives.

SSD speed compare
Greater Durability

Solid State Drives feature a non-mechanical design of NAND flash mounted to circuit boards, shock resistant up to 1500g. Hard disk drives consist of various moving parts making them susceptible to shock and damage.

Faster Performance

SSDs have 100 times greater throughput and instantaneous access times for quicker boot-ups, faster file transfers, and overall snappier performance than hard drives. HDDs can only access the data faster the closer it is from the read/ write heads, while all parts of the SSD can be accessed at once.

Less Power Consumption, Silent Operation, and Lightweight

SSDs use significantly less wattage at peak load than hard disk drives--less than 2W versus 6W for an HDD--delivering longer battery life in notebooks, less power strain on system, and a cooler computing environment. With no moving parts, SSDs run virtually silent in your notebook or PC case to eliminate distracting noises during gaming or entertainment. And SSDs won't weigh down your laptop, netbook, or tablet PC when you're on the go.

Replaced the 320GB drive in my Acer C7 Chromebook. Boot time, shut down time, awaken from sleep time were cut by 60%.

This product is great. It though I was not going to notice a difference. My laptop now feels like I snapped a new faster processor instead of a hard drive. Highly recommend buying this product if you want to speed up that old laptop.

Style Name: 7mmSize Name: 60 GB Verified Purchase
Same mounting holes as the thicker, regular SATA drives, mounted inside of laptops there's no discernible difference. Won't fit some of my quick mount 2.5 inch to 3.5 inch SATA bays, but that's not what I purchased this for. Was bought to replace the magnetic drive inside an ACER S3 and had to have the low profile to fit. Prior to that, I had to remove the circuit board from the housing of an OCZ Vertex 2 SSD and tape it in to fit. Cheaper way to turn low end ultrabooks into speedier, more energy efficient versions without the higher price premium.

I never measured the speeds beyond gauging how much faster the system runs with an SSD vs a traditional mag drive. The Windows 7 boot animation doesn't even get a chance to finish before it finishes booting. Despite it's slimmer profile, the drive still feels solid, with no flex anywhere.

Tried some other brands over the years, and keep coming back to OCZ. Admittedly those other brands may be better now, but once bitten, I'm hesitant to give a vendor a 2nd try. I now have OCZ SSD's for the system drives in all of my computers (and laptop) except my home server (and that's next, when the system drive starts to fail on it).
