What performance can I expect from this drive?
This solid state drive is 240GB, giving you enough space for your files. With a read speed of 550MB/s and a write speed of 520MB/s, you are able to start your computer up quicker, as well as being able to load your files in an instant. 240GB will give you enough storage for approximately 45 hours of high definition video or over 130,000 photos so you’ll never have to worry about running out of space.

What difference does the read/write speed make?
The read/write speed of a hard drive is the main factor when starting your computer up. With a read speed of 550MB/s and a write speed of 520MB/s, this will speed up your start up time, when compared to using a 7200 RPM and 5400 RPM hard drives. This can make a real impact on your computer if you are wanting to improve its performance.

How easy is the SSD to install?
Installing a new drive can be a daunting prospect if you haven’t done it before - but it doesn’t have to be. Installing into a laptop or a computer is easy enough as long as you remember to use an anti-static wrist strap which prevents you from potentially damaging any smaller components within the computer. The SATA connection allows you to just unplug the pre-existing hard drive to which you can then plug the new one in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic upgrade Huge improvement in speed compared with conventional hard drives. I replaced my boot drive with this SSD and loaded my software only, my data is all stored on the old mechanical drive. There is still loads of space on the SSD after loading MS Office, Photoshop, Lightroom, etc, etc, so it could be used for some data, but this arrangement with two disks works well. Windows boots up much faster, and programs launch very quickly. The Extreme Pro version is more expensive than other versions, but comes with a 10 year guarantee. I was so impressed that I bought another one for an 8 year old laptop which was grinding to a halt, and it's like having a new computer.
