- QuestionDoes this come with data transfer program? (2 Answers)Answers
No, the drive does not come with a data transfer tool ... I found and used Farstone.com (Drive Clone 11) Home version is free download. Worked like a CHARM ... you will also need an adapter to connect the drive to to USB (assuming you are cloning a laptop?) I purchased Sabrent (2.5" SATA Hard Drive / SSD to USB 3.0 Adapter) mail-order. One Note - after you install the cloned drive you will get a popup every time you boot your PC to Upgrade the software - simply uninstall the software to resolve this.
- QuestionHow does this mount in a 3.5 inch drive bay? (1 Answer)Answers
check the web ... there are numerous bays available to accommodate mounting an SSD into a 3.5 inch bay. I purchased one from Sabrent (2.5" SSD and SATA harddrive to desktop 3.5" bay bracket.) you mentioned 2.75" - I believe that is actually considered 2.5" .. these are basically all the same size.
- Questionis this pretty good for my acer M5 481p-6644? (2 Answers)
average price I should expect to pay geek squad for installment , new member or not. ( I figured 3337u cpu with this should run as good if, not better than 4210u) plus laptop is under 2years old. i heard the ram was already maxed at 6.Answers
I just put the ScanDisk Ultra II 240gb in my Gateway NE72214u, which is near to the same specs as your Acer M5 481p-6644. If you have the original installation disks and the time, it may be fun to just try to install it by yourself. If not, just pay the dudes to install it and get on with enjoying it. Hopefully by now you have already had it installed, but if your still waiting, I would definitely choose this specific Solid State Drive, as it has a "No Wait Boot Up and Shut Down" compared to other brands upgraded models, and it made a big difference in the boot up, speed and smoothness of my machine. The ScanDisk Ultra II has a decent benchmark rating. Some other drives are faster, but you will not be able to judge that, because our computers are not going to get the top speed anyways as our hard drive controller is SATA II, and the SSD is configured for the newer SATA III controllers as in the new laptops built for the top speed with larger front side buses. It is like the difference between a normal USB 2.0 and an upgraded USB 3.0. I saw the transfer speed between my USB Flash Drive increase by about 1/3, and my movies and games are way super smooth now. For me, I really needed the 240bg because Windows 8 wants 100gb for the operating system, which is way much more than Windows 7, so the 120gb drives are not right for me. Hope you pull the trigger on this one.
