What performance can I expect from this drive?
This solid state drive has a capacity of 480GB 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. With a read speed of 550MB/s and a write speed of 515MB/s, this allows you to start your computer up quicker as well as being able to scan and search for files rapidly. 480GB will give you enough storage for approximately 90 hours of high definition video while still having enough room for your operating system.

How efficient is this SSD?
Thanks to its solid state design, the SanDisk SSD consumes less power and produces less heat than a traditional HDD. This lightens the load on your PC's power supply and cooling system, lengthening your system's lifespan.

Why should I buy a solid state drive?
SSD drives are faster, more reliable and a lot more efficient than mechanical hard drives (HDD). Durability and reliability are two things you can expect from an SSD. They are able to withstand knocks and shocks, making them ideal to use in laptops and netbooks. This doesn’t mean you can’t use them in computers - they provide a quick start up speed and a silent operation as well as being easy to install into your case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased this 480 ScanDisk Extreme several months ago now. I wanted a high reliability SSD for my C drive and a bit more space. I rebuilt my PC (always a pain) but everything works well. The result? Well, it's FAST! I mean really fast. Its great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 18 months on, no problems I added this to what was a new I5 PC, running Windows 10. The machine boots in around 12 seconds, can't fault the drive at all.

Does it come with Sata to USB interface and Hard Drive cloning software?  I was in Manchester Maplin yesterday, and the display in there seemed to suggest that it does.  If it does, I'll be buying it.   Rob
