Enhance your computing experience with this SanDisk Ultra 3D solid-state drive. Its nCache 2.0 technology provides enhanced data transfer speeds, and it’s more robust and power-efficient because of its advanced 3D NAND technology. This solid-state drive has a sequential read speed of 560MB/s for faster loading of large applications. You’ll notice that applications load faster and files move quicker—plus you’ll get longer battery life and much cooler, quieter computing.
A:AnswerConsider the following when purchasing an SSD upgrade. This site below covers the ranges of SSD's and similar types of devices. It covers the advantages and disadvantages of your options. One thing to keep in mind, when I went to Best Buy to pick up my SanDisk Ultra 1TB 3-D SSD, they tried to hand me a SanDisk Ultra II 960GB SSD drive and told me that it was how they are labeling the drives. The read/Write times were not as high as the one I found online. I didn't fall for it so I hope you don't either. Make sure that they give you something that looks exactly like what you have decided on. Also, The 3-D part means that they stack the memory cells on top of one another. This is a newer technology, but allows for more storage in a smaller space. Another thing to keep in mind is that I have had an older tech SSD before, after some number of years and the memory starts to fail, you will begin to see glitches in the operating system and files.The SanDisk SSD however has an application that you can install which allows you to monitor the life and health of the SSD. It is a good idea to install it. But I don't recommend changing any setting that you haven't researched first, TRIM for example can help to improve the performance of the SSD, but could shorten the life of the drive.
Bottom line, if you haven't used an SSD before, I will tell you that it will boost performance more that any other upgrade.
A:AnswerYes, you can use laptop SSD’s in desktops. The only difference is the drive will be a lot smaller and a lot thinner. Most desktops have mounting hole on the full size hard drive cages, but it it doesn’t you can easily and cheaply pick up an 2.5in to 3.5in hard drive cage to securely fit the drive into your desktop. If you really wanted to get creative you can use some strong double sided tape to hold the drive if you don’t have the items previously said.
A:AnswerNo. Unless you are amazing at disassembling things, as in you've used a heat gun to soften glue, don't even think about the upgrade. Even if this was the correct drive. It is not the correct drive, not even close.
