What performance can I expect from this drive?
This solid state drive has a read speed of 520MB/s and a write speed of 115MB/s. This means you’ll enjoy faster operating system start up, quicker program launches and smoother overall performance with games and multimedia applications. 64GB will give you enough storage for approximately 12 hours of high definition video or more than 35,000 photos so you’ll never have to worry about running out of space.

How efficient is the 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 a mechanical hard drive (HDD). With great durability 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.

How do I install this into my desktop pc?
To install this SSD into your desktop PC, you will need an adapter due to the size difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to fit, powerful and FAST! Bought this SSD to update my Hannspree laptop. You do not have to be wild-haired technical Guru to install this solid-state drive! Maplin has made the installation of this drive idiot-proof. Generally the 'old' hard-drive has eight Phillips or cross-head screws. Four to hold and earth the 'Faraday cage' (or tin-can) to the HD, and the other four, which are slightly thinner but the same size cross-heads, hold the unit securely in place. I used a Draper 0 Phillips screw-driver but other makes of the same size will suffice.As it will be a one-off, I suggest a miniature cross-head set from Poundland or other 'El Cheapo' outlets. Slide out the 'old' HD and remove the eight screws. I suggest putting all the bits on a towel or a couple of pieces of kitchen paper... Carefully, and without touching any of the rows of copper pins, fit the 'Faraday cage' on to your new SSD and align the screw holes and fit the fatter of the eight screws. Hence the instruction to place the bits on a towel so you can immediately identify the four fat and thin screws..! Cloning or copying your old drive to your new drive is adequately explained, in-full, within the enclosed: SanDisk* SSD installation Guide and Warranty under Safety & Handling instructions/Installation Guidelines through paragraph 1. to 5. The results of your endeavours,purchase and installation will astonish.
