About this product


Product overview

• 960GB internal solid state drive (SSD) giving you a large storage capacity for your computer
• 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 can I expect from this SSD?
The larger input/output per second rate allows it to complete operations faster than most SSD drives while still keeping the efficiency to high level. With 960GB you are able to store approximately 200,000 pictures as well as a huge amount of video, leaving you with enough room to run your operating system.

How efficient is this drive?
With a lower power draw as well as no moving parts, this SanDisk Ultra II SSD creates less heat than a normal hard drive. Add in to this no sound or vibration and you have a drive that will be as quiet as a mouse as you use it.

How reliable are these kind of drives?
The way to measure these kind of drives is with failure rates. SSDs generally run for a mean time failure rate of two million hours, compared to the mean time failure rate 1.5 million hours of a HDD. This makes SSDs roughly 33% more reliable than HDDs and gives you peace of mind that your drive shouldn’t fail when you need it most.

What makes an SSD different from a normal hard drive?
A solid state drive comes with no moving parts, this makes it a lot quicker when completing actions, for example starting up your computer or opening files. A normal hard drive, or HDD, uses a mechanical arm with a read/write head to move around and read information from the right location. So, if you’re wanting to make the operation of your computer more streamlined, an SSD would be the choice for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great upgrade for a Mac! I bought this SSD to upgrade my Mac book pro late 2011 having looked up how to speed up my aging Mac book in an attempt to avoid buying a new one. It was super easy to swap and install and has made my Mac book pro feel like a brand new computer! Boot up time has gone from around 5 mins to less than 30 seconds, and apps such as photo shop launch in seconds now now minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well Relatively cheap upgrade to a low cost laptop. Way cheaper than alternatives, maybe not the top performer but in normal daily use you won't be able to tell the difference.
