960 Gig Ultra II SSD
Top Customer Reviews
I used an external docking station using an USB cable and I downloaded the 480 GIG drive backup from my server and loaded it onto the new 960 GIG drive.
I then swapped the drives and installed the new one in my slot for the primary drive. When I booted my computer it immediately recognized the new drive as the C Drive and it told me that I had to restart Windows 10 for the changes to take effect. You should note that Windows changed the drive letter to C.
Unless you need the old drive you took out right away I always keep it as long as possible as a backup of my working operating system. If something should happen you now have a recovery disk to get back into operation and you may have to install a few updates but you don't lose everything including possibly the OEM license to your operating system. If you don't need the drive and have room in your tower computer (If that is where you installed this new one) I sometimes leave the old drive in place and make sure that the wires are run to it but not connected so it does not wear out. (Especially if it is a standard mechanical drive) Now you know where it is and if the primary drive fails then remove the PC computer's power and unplug the failed drive and plug in the archived one and you are back in business.
So far I am happy with the new drive as it is as fast as my old SSD and I didn't lose any performance but I picked up an additional 480 GIG of storage space and a little more breathing room on the boot drive. I ran benchmarking speed tests on the drive and they were very good. I had write speeds of up to 464.823MB/s and read speeds of up to 530.242 MB/s.
I hope this has been helpful to you and enjoy your new SSD Drive. I like this product and I give it 5 stars and I recommend it to you.
I work in and with computers every day...and I know that the things that slow down a computer the most are the lack of memory (always suggest maxing out the memory the minute you get a computer with memory being so cheap now days) and the hard drive. Most budget to medium computers come with a pretty slow hard drive. ...this becomes the single biggest bottleneck in the computer and can account for slowing down the computer by more than 40%. By adding this super fast Sandisk SSD, you literally will feel like you just purchased a new machine. The programs and Windows startup will fly by in a blink...literally. Your web surfing will be faster, game play will be out of this world better.
This drive is one of the fastest that Sandisk has. It installed in two minutes, and with the cloning software that they supply for free, (this is a big deal as many will not send you this and it is costly and necessary if you need to replace the Windows start up drive) had my entire 500gb hard drive cloned in 13 minutes. I have seen this process, with other software, take half a day. In total, up and running in 32 minutes with speed that measured 41% faster than what the machine has been able to record with the old OEM drive.
Unless you are some super gamer, ultra power user with some crazy fast and expensive computer, this hard drive will be quite sufficient for you in terms of speed. The nice thing about Solid State Drives is that they aren't limited by the spinning speed of a disc. A SSD is much better at accessing information and delivering data at the rate the rest of your system can deliver it. That means you can see dramatic decreases in the amount of time it takes to wake your machine up or open a large program.
Solid state drives are not susceptible to disc damage due to being jarred like the disc drives of old. Since there are no moving parts, movement does not affect it. The memory does degrade over time, but it takes a long time, probably longer than you will have your laptop. Even more, supposedly this drive informs you when this is beginning to happen so that you can take care of the problem before it is a problem.
My criteria in finding a hard drive was somewhat an equally weighted combination of good price and quality in the storage capacity I was looking for. This drive represents the culmination of that search.
I've done the research and put in the hours. If you can bring yourself to believe me and not wonder if you made the best possible choice when I say this is the hard drive to get, then your search is over.
