Product details

SanDisk 480GB Ultra II SSD

• 480GB internal solid state drive (SSD) for a high capacity replacement drive
• 2.5 inch SATA III connection with a read speed of 550MB/s and a write speed of 500MB/s for a rapid data transfer and quick start up speed
• 91,000 input/output per second (IOPS)
• Perfect for use in laptops and notebooks to replace your existing hard drive with a faster, quieter version
• Shock resistant allowing you a constant running drive with no skipping of failures
• SDSSDHII-480G-G25

What can I get out of this SSD performance wise?
With a high capacity of 480GB, you will have plenty of room for running your operating system as well as storing your music, photos and videos on your PC. As the drive comes with no moving parts it performs actions a lot faster than a mechanical hard drive and with a read write speed of 550MB/s the data transfer speed is increased nearly four times making this a great replacement for your current drive.

How efficient is the SSD?
Having no moving parts, the SanDisk SSD consumes less power and produces less heat than a traditional HDD. With a cooler running drive, this allows you to comfortably use a laptop on your lap without the noise of the fan cancelling out the sound from your speakers. This lightens the load on your PC's power supply and cooling system and lengthens your battery life.

What other benefits does using an SSD have?
The failure rate of SSDs is less than that of a mechanical hard drive, by up to 33%. This particular solid state drive is also shock resistant, giving you peace of mind that if you were to drop your computer while carrying it, your data is always safe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a difference a SSD can make!! Incredibly impressed with this, I have a 2010 MacBook Pro which I have recently installed this in to replace the supplied 5400rpm HDD. Boot up times have gone from a little under a minute, to 6 seconds!!! Installation of OS X took less than 15 mins (used to take well over 45 before), Adobe responds lightning fast and the machine is operating as if all of today's bloat ware was designed for it. Installation is nice and simple, this is a real must for anyone looking to increase the speed of their aging MacBook Pro, but has already maxed out the RAM. Also thanks to the guys @RugbyMaplins, their knowledge was fantastic in helping me choose the best drive for my needs and machine suitability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good and fast Used free version of easUS todo backup to clone my old drive. Worked without any problems. It is much faster than my old 5400 SATA. It also comes with a spacer in case your old disk drive is thicker.

What would I need to make this an external drive connected by USB?

Asked by: shooguk
Any 2.5 inch drive enclosure should be suitable. Something like the following is an example; http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/probox-25-inch-sata-usb30-hard-drive-enclosure-a36kj

Will this item work in a CCTV recorder please?

Asked by: Vint
I'm confused by your answer; I would've thought that the Solid State Drive would be "more" suitable for a continuous-running application like a CCTV recorder than its predecessor which contained moving parts.

I bought the Ultra II from Maplin on the 22/01/2016. I cannot register the SSD with SanDisk because it does not recognise the s/n number on the drive. Is this a previously reported problem and is there an alternative.

Asked by: Robert
This sounds like an issue with Sandisk themselves and i would recommend getting in touch with them via the link below. https://www.sandisk.co.uk/
