    I've replaced most of my laptops with SSD drives and haven't looked back. SSD drives have no moving parts so there is no danger of read/write error from bouncing the laptop around while in use and it uses less energy which is good for longer battery life. If you know how to open up your laptop and replace drives, it's very easy to swap out and replace with this one. I would recommend cloning the original HD data to the new SSD drive before swapping out, though. You'll love the new performance enhancement from SSD drives.

    I was going to to get this installed on an old MacBook Pro for the daughter in 7th grade. My computer guy said the failure rate of this particular brand is high. I thought he was just trying to sell me something from his store. Upon further investigation I did find some more detailed reviews supporting his claim. I did end up buying from him for a little less money for more GB.

    Just upgraded my 3 year old laptop with this SSD and I am amazed by the performance. Before purchasing this I was looking at the Samsung SSDs which tops in performance. But for my requirement I trusted Sandisk and I am not at all disappointed in anyway. Even before RAM upgrade to any computer I recommend doing SSD upgrade first.

    This is my second SSD and my expectations, based upon the first SSD I purchased about 5 years ago...which was amazing, have set the bar higher. So, I expected an even better experience, but this SSD seems to be almost as good as the one before. That said, if this is your first SSD you should be quite happy. Being that the price was very inexpensive, I'd recommend it.

    One of the best ways to ramp up the performance on your machine is to setup a SSD. I added this to an older gaming laptop and upgraded the memory and its like new again. As for the brand/model I was very pleased with performance and specs for the price. Opinion: Do not run Windows 10 without SSD. It makes a BIG difference.

    Easy to install and configure. Only negative is they no longer include a separate housing so you can install the new SSD in your pc and have the old drive installed in a case to replicate through USB. Thankfully, I had one of my old cases and replication worked flawlessly

    I've been wrestling with my old Dell laptop for years to get it to work faster. After adding the SSD it's like a new puppy. All feisty and ready to play. Easy to install and image the old drive to the new. Free software is available.

    Works great!!! I installed it on my MacBook pro and haven't had any issues. Very fast like any other SSD. I would recommend. Sandisk is a very good brand when it comes to flash memory.
