Boy was I surprised at the speed of this thing though! I installed Windows 8.1 and all of my programs on the SSD while I kept all of my documents, music, videos, games, and other files on my old hard drive. Windows 8.1 makes it easy to put all of your "my documents" "my music" etc. libraries on the other hard drive while just keeping the OS on the SSD. Most of my programs let me choose which drive to install on which is nice too. Installing the OS and programs, after the download of course, was very fast on this SSD compared to my old one.
So on to the actual performance! Seeing as I am a college student and I use my laptop multiple times each day for writing papers, listening to music, and browsing the internet, I wanted to make my laptop a little snappier. Normally my hard drive was ok for these tasks but lacked speed. When booting up and trying to open Word, iTunes, and Chrome at the same time it would take a bit to load the programs. The new SSD boots up much faster and there is only about a 500ms delay to open Word rather than a 5-10 second one.
I benchmarked the S70 240GB SSD and compared it at the same time to my Seagate 750GB SSHD (which is supposedly top-notch as far as hard drives go).
The sequential read is almost 5x faster than my old HDD
The sequential write is more than 3x faster
And the random access times are where it really shines literally hundreds of times faster! Better random access means you get very snappy responses to opening programs and other tasks that require accessing stuff from the SSD quickly.
How amazing? Well, Windows used to take 5-10 minutes to boot on a regular hard drive. On an SSD drive, Windows takes 15-30 seconds to boot.
I've bought three of these, and have had no problems. Highly recommend.
Before the upgrade, it was choking on just turning the thing on. Logging in would take at least a few minutes, and programs took half a minute or longer to start. It was usable, but it became so slow. After the upgrade as well as a new OS installation, it now takes just under 14 seconds to boot after turning on the power button, and everything takes only a couple seconds (or less) to open despite the otherwise slow CPU. This is even better than when it was brand new.
Obviously at this price, you're not getting an NVMe SSD, but the value is otherwise pretty good for the few more years you can get out of any prebuilt PC when upgrading to a solid state drive.
I plan on purchasing more SSDs from Silicon Power for my laptops and other desk tops. Great product and the price and warranty can't be beat.
