      I bought this hard drive to upgrade and improve my 2009 iMac. This is the best investment of $100 I have every made. My computer had slowed down so much that I was going to buy a new one. But this hard drive brought it back to life and the computer is faster now than when it was brand new. There was absolutely no problem in doing the upgrade. The stock Apple operating software allows you clone the old drive without downloading any third party software. The only warning is that you need to buy a SATA to USB cable to clone your hard drive. I paid $9 on Amazon for the cable. It has been more than a month and I am completely thrilled with the results.

      Easy way to speed up any laptop/desktop

      Installed SSD this in an ASUS laptop and boot time and application load times were substantially faster than with the standard HD. Installation was straightforward. Using cloning software required a download from the Sandisk support site. The software will also adjust partition sizes if your existing boot HD is a different size than the one you are installing. To clone as your laptop boot disk, you will need a USB-SATA adapter to temporarily connect the SSD to your laptop. For a desktop, you can install, clone the boot disk, then configure the desktop to boot from the SSD. You can also d/load a Sandisk utility to manage the SSD from their support site. Overall, good performance and good value, especially when on sale.

      This SSD was installed on a 3rd generation i5 HP desktop bought in early 2013 (2012 release) along with an older graphics card and RAM maxed to 8GB. The HP boots quickly with no need to keep it on all day (power drain) to be able to sit down and go. It is ready in seconds. No longer a work machine, the HP is perfect for reading the news, playing solitaire or Sudoku, and web browsing. For fun I also added Ubuntu after carving out a 40GB partition. No problem there either. I highly recommend these drives to anyone who will listen. Prices are quite good right now. No reason to wait on slower technology from a time when the Internet meant AOL dial-up.

      Solid state hard drives make pc's much faster. My wife complained her HP laptop took forever to startup and very sluggish. I know I could spend time and money cleaning program's and partitioning her computer. I had cloned a new solid state hard drive on my personal desktop and found a huge improvement in performance. So I knew what to expect when replacing my wife's hard drive from old fashioned mechanical to solid state. I was not disappointed! My wife is now very happy and that makes me happy. The price is a little steep but doing this is like buying a new computer!

      I purchased this SSD to speed up my HP Envy laptop which had a 7200RPM drive in it. My windows now boots in 9 seconds from the time i turn on the machine to the time i have to login to windows. This is compared to the 2 minutes it would take before... So very happy with this purchase. I also have been able to stress test the drive and it does get the 500MB write per second on this drive. So this drive performs exactly lilke they say it should. So you couldn't ask for a better drive! Definitely a good purchase!

      This was more of a repair than it was an upgrade. I was having problems with my 4 year old mechanical hard drive, and decided that the time was right for an SSD. The pricing on ssds have made them approachable walked into the store, purchase it to get home migrated my data and installed it. My machine is so much faster that even thought it would be. I know that should have been the case I'm still surprised. It's remarkable how much difference there is between the performance of an SSD and a HDD. It was indeed the bottleneck in the performance of my high performance machine.

      I bought this for an inexpensive Dell notebook that I got from Best Buy (it came with an AMD A6 processor) and reloaded it with this new San Disk 512 SSD and it runs very fast. I also added another 4GB ram chip to boost the speed. Now the computer runs very well and I can send it off to my niece to use (she only does e-mail and web-surfing). This drive is a bargain for what it does, is light-weight, and reads/writes very quickly. You cannot go wrong with these SSD drives.

      I am happy with this purchase. I originally bought it to replace the 128GB SSD in a hybrid computer as recommended by the salesperson. When I got the computer opened it would not fit to replace the 128GB SSD so I replaced the 1TB HDD. It does run quieter but now I wish I had bought a 1TB SSD since I ended up replacing the bigger HDD. Since it was not used for the boot drive it did make install a breeze with no need to reinstall Windows. I would recommend it.
