About this product


Product overview

• 240GB internal solid state drive (SSD)
• 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

What performance can I expect from this drive?
This solid state drive is 240GB which is enough to be able to run your operating system as well as storing your documents on your laptop or notebook with enough room for your pictures and music. The read speed of 550MB/s and write speed of 500MB/s allows you to start your computer up quicker as well as being able to scan and search for files rapidly. 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.

How easy is it to transfer my existing data to my new drive?
The SanDisk Ultra II SSD comes with Apricorn’s EZ GIG IV cloning software. This software creates an exact copy of an old drive onto the new drive. This allows for an easy transfer without losing your data.

What else can I do with this solid state drive?
Not only does this SSD come with Apricorn cloning software, it also comes with an antivirus software and the ability to view the drive’s performance through the SanDisk SSD dashboard. This also allows you to see what firmware updates are available and gives you advice as to what you can do to further maintain the peak performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SSD easy transfer and install I purchased both this SSD and the SanDisk transfer kit for my laptop. Ever so easy, (YouTube video helped) the transfer package has everything you need for a smooth data transplant from the old HDD to the new SSD. Once transferred, switch off power, remove battery then remove old HDD, observing how fixed. Once SSD installed, battery replaced and switched on all working as before but faster.......just one more thing, you can partition the drives at the program stage, so I have increased the OS from 35 GB (C drive) to 85 GB by reducing the D data drive purely for my work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gob-Smackingly Awesome I had an old Mac mini - 8 years old and non-functioning. I put this drive into it and did a clean install of OSX Yosemite, and it is now running so fast it is virtually indistinguishable from my brand new iMac. This is literally the best upgrade I have ever done on a computer. Note that changing the HD on a Mac Mini is not the easiest job - but there are videos on You Tube to show you how. I imagine the speed and reliability benefits it gives would apply to any computer. I was sufficiently impressed to swap out the perfectly good hard drive on my Macbook and was just as impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value This made a big difference to daily chores. I am a data analyst and this was the best upgrade I could have hoped for. Big thanks to the terrific service of the guys at Maplins Bath.

Where is the software to copy from my old drive to new drive, it's not on the drive as I was told in store

Asked by: Granthar
The item quite clearly says 'SanDisk Ultra II SSD comes with Apricorn’s EZ GIG IV cloning software'.  That software isn't free

Hi, Can I use this ssd drive in my dell desktop which has a partitioned hard drive, 'C' for the OS and 'D' for data. Can I leave the data on D and just replace the C drive with the SSD

Asked by: Tejay
It's difficult to assure you 100% knowing nothing of the system you intend to place the drive in, but in theory you should be able to place a SSD drive into a computer and use it as the "Windows" bot drive, it would be advisable to install Windows from scratch on this new drive to take full advantage of all the benefits a SSD drive offers. You should then be able to see the data stored on the secondary drive.

do I need to purchase a connector  cable to connect between hard drive & ssd if so part number

Asked by: bribeck
It would depend on the system you have and what you are looking to accomplish. For standard operation, the SSD is designed to connect to the motherboard in the same manner as a standard HDD using SATA cables. This will bring the SSD up as a standard drive in the computer and you can freely transfer files. If you are looking to upgrade a laptop drive, you would need an upgrade kit, one can be found at the following link;
