Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Give your desktop PC's memory a performance boost with the SanDisk ReadyCache Solid State Drive.

You'll experience faster application loading without having to replace your current hard drive.

SanDisk ReadyCache Solid State Drive (32 GB)

Boots up your operating system up to 4 times faster** than a traditional 7,200 RPM hard drive. View larger.

Simple, Cost-Effective PC Memory Upgrade

The SanDisk ReadyCache SSD gives you the benefits of solid state technology at a fraction of the cost of a traditional SSD. Designed for use as a cache drive, it works in tandem with your existing hardware to accelerate your PC's performance. And since the SanDisk ReadyCache SSD works with your original hard drive, you can enjoy SSD-like responsiveness without having to transfer your files or reinstall your operating system.

Amplified PC Performance with Faster Data Speeds

With its increased data speeds, the SanDisk ReadyCache SSD can boot up your operating system up to 4 times faster and applications up to 12 times faster** than a traditional 7,200 RPM hard drive. The drive delivers sequential read speeds of up to 450 MB/s1, making it ideal for read-intensive tasks. It also enables fast file transfer, thanks to sequential write speeds of up to 110 MB/s1.

ExpressCache Software for Fast, Smart Caching

The SanDisk ReadyCache SSD has been optimized for use with ExpressCache software, a program from Condusiv Technologies that accelerates storage performance. Using advanced caching algorithms, ExpressCache software automatically manages your data by caching the files and applications you use most frequently. This helps your PC store and access data much more rapidly, greatly improving overall response times. ExpressCache software is available for download from the SanDisk website2.

Easy to Install

The SanDisk ReadyCache SSD features do-it-yourself installation: simply plug the drive into an available SATA port on your motherboard and install the ExpressCache software. It comes with everything you need for setup, including screws, a 3.5-inch bracket, a 12-inch SATA 6 Gb/s cable, and software activation code.

Reliable, Resilient Design

The drive is rated at 4.1 million hours MTBF3 (mean time before failure) and is also designed to withstand shock and vibration.

Consumes Less Power than Traditional Hard Drives

The SanDisk ReadyCache SSD places less strain on your PC's resources than a traditional hard drive. The drive's cool operation and low power consumption reduce the risk of overtaxing your PC's power supply or accumulating heat inside the case.

32 GB Capacity for More Flexible Caching

The SanDisk ReadyCache SSD has plenty of room to cache your favorite games and programs. With its 32 GB capacity, the SSD can easily cache even the most memory-intensive programs--including games, video editors, and multimedia applications.

Received the ReadyCache SSD today in the regular UPS Mail. It was in a plain paper package but inside there's professional packaging with a Sandisk box. Inside the box you get the SSD itself, a bracket, a set of screws, a sata data cable and the instructions with the activation key for the software. Installation wasn't the easiest thing in the world but that is primarily due to owning a Dell XPS 8100 desktop. They make it so hard to add things to these boxes that it took me about 45 minutes to finally get it right and even then it is sort of rigged. I ended up not using the bracket and just mounting it above the existing hard drive because neither of the available power cables were long enough. I suppose I could have purchased an extension but then I would have had to wait to try it out.

After installation I booted up and Windows 7 immediately recognized the drive. Was surprised it didn't show up as a drive letter so it must be formatted differently than normal. Anyway, the software was about 133 megabytes so after download I ran through the install which went through without a hitch. Asked for a reboot after and then enabled my activation code and was ready to go. Didn't immediately notice much improvement but that really makes sense to me. You see, this thing caches frequently used files as you use them. Basically you'll want to restart your computer again after enabling cache so those files get in there and then once back up you'll want to run all your normal software to cache those things. After running through 2 reboots and then running outlook, word, excel, firefox, itunes, steam and a few other frequently used applications I'm using close to 7gb of the available roughly 30gb.

The good news, the computer seems MUCH snappier now.

For those wondering, I installed this yesterday on my Windows 8 machine and it works great. I have noticed huge improvements in boot time and application launch times. My boot time has been cut in half. Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer now open almost instantly. Photoshop and Visual Studio both load in about 4 seconds. I noticed the speed increase on the 2nd or 3rd time opening an application So far I am very happy with this product. Especially for $50.

The only issue I ran into is that when I first installed the drive, my bios set it as the first drive in my boot sequence. This caused my computer to not boot. Once I removed the drive from my boot sequence it started working fine.

I also did not like the activation code, but it wasn't a big deal. The software you install monitors your most used programs and then caches them onto the SSD. This caching process is a lot like Intel's Smart Response Technology, which comes with the ZX8 motherboards (possibly others, I'm not familiar with them). I have a ZX8 motherboard, but went with this product anyway. So far, it's working fantastically.

Installation is a cinch. Just mount the SSD onto the bracket, then put the bracket in an existing slot in your tower. Easy. On the first go around, I forgot to attach the power cable. Braindead moment for me, I guess. So, don't forget that.

The package it arrived in was totally weird, though, never seen one like it. It was a strong, brown paper package that the post office (I'm assuming, to save space) folded in half and put a rubber band around it. Nothing to prevent one from buying the product, though.

It is well worth the $50 I threw down for it. All in all, a solid four stars.

I installed it on my PC and move my Debian install from my SATA HDD to my new SSD. And it works great! Any program I want to run loads at least twice as fast now.

Of course, due to the nature of SSD technology, you should follow some guidelines to make it work right. Ask Google for that (I can't include hyperlinks here )

Just bought this a few days ago and have to say I am impressed. Boot speeds are cut almost in half and my wife's apps and web pages load almost instantaneously. I had some doubts initially but the little bugger works quite well! In fact, I'm not sure there is a reason to even buy a decent sized solid state drive, at least as of today, when for the price of say a 256GB SSD drive you could get this, a 1 TB hard drive, and still have money to take you're spouse out to dinner...Or buy more ram... 8)

After some windows update glitched up my 128gb SSD and kept me from booting up, I decided to raid 1 my 2.5 and 3.5 320gb HDD's so it would be stable instead of fast. After a few months I realized it was slow and I wanted my speed back. I saw this and didn't know if it would work but I had 15 bucks saved up from survey I took toward Amazon. I was worried because literally no reviews on amazon, newegg, or anywhere else seemed to exist. Took a chance. WOW it does work! boots up much quicker and games all load up swiftly. I still have about 9 gb still open. worth the 55 bucks IMO if you don't want to buy actual ssd's and reinstall windows, download all your games, transfer files, etc. Games I play most are up in seconds. LoL, GW2, Skyrim, Deus Ex:HR, Steam, AVAST, Mass Effect, few others. I have only had it for a week so can't say how reliable it will be but so far so AWESOME!
