Top customer reviews
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
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.
In my case, the plan was to install as replacement for internal spinning boot disk, and then do a clean fresh install (Yosemite on mid-2009) and Sierra on (mid-2012).
Install was a breeze, there are several videos on YouTube. I would rate as "EASY".
Following instructions easily found on Internet, I had already created a USB-flash installer for the MACOS. Powered-up system with new SSD installed and held down OPTION key. I was able to pick the USB drive where the installer resided (you wont see the SSD disk at that point). From there, easily used Disk Utility to format SSD and then installed new instance of MACOS. SImple and easy.
As several reviewers mentioned, this is not the fastest SSD out there, but notably improves speed of system startup and any disk access for older MacBook Pro laptops. However, unlike others, I am not taking a star away because SanDisk doesnt represent itself as top shelf speed. At the price, this is a 5-Star product.
I cannot speak yet to reliability, but SanDisk has strong brand reputation for flash storage, so I expect little issues.
-All data properly migrated to this drive using Macrium Reflect
-Drive has a total read speed of 492.7 MB/s, this is the speed I was expecting giving the limitations of SATA III.
-Drive has a total write speed of 301 MB/s, again, this is the speed I was expecting.
-Operating System boots quickly and all of my programs load quickly as well.
-480 GB for less than $150 USD (at the time of me writing this review) is a great value!
-Heat: The drive does tend to heat up when writing or reading large amounts of data, but it's nothing to really worry about since the drive cools down rather quickly.
I noticed that the read speeds are as advertised = UP to 500+MBps.
The write speeds, however seem to top out at 80-90 MBps for the one that I have. I have also have one of these in 240GB size and the write speeds on it go up to 500+MBps. So I don't know if I received a bad one or if the 120GB size is limited in this way.
Because the drive works well (just slower than expected write speeds) I did not attempt to return and I am living with it in a repaired laptop. It works well, just a bit slow with writes. Again, maybe someone else has a review on the 120GB where they are seeing better writes and I have a dud....
