A bargain for the performance!

I have now installed two of these in 2007/2008 spec laptops as upgrades. One was a Vista machine (fresh build) and a Windows 8 machine (fresh build). I have to say I'm very impressed.

I have bought several SSDs over the past couple of years and the performance of this drive is largely comparable. After a day or so applications load up promptly and everything feels nice and snappy. Boot times for the Windows 8 laptop came in at 19 seconds to desktop which isn't to be sniffed at. Boot times for the Vista machine didn't seem that different but application loading and general use were vastly improved over the old 250GB drive.

Single platter design (yay) so performance is in the 90MBps+ range. As its a 500GB drive I tend to split the drive down the middle so the OS etc. stays in the faster half of the drive. Performance drops off on any HDD quite dramatically over the 50% mark.

So you can buy this drive with confidence. I have seen it for less than


Great cost effective upgrade

Just upgraded an early Apple Macbook Pro 2011, which took over a minute to boot into the desktop, prior to the upgrade, having installed OSX Mountain Lion, which slowed things down too a crawl. The upgrade was straightforward and after 5 reboots I'm now down to 15 seconds to get to the desktop! An excellent upgrade which has given me the best of both worlds, which are faster boot speeds with a higher storage capacity than what I could afford with a true SSD. The whole macbook is now far more responsive. Just make sure that you have a Torx size 6 to hand when changing the Macbook Pro's HDD, for this item. Also, I noticed that the old hard drive was rated at 1A, with the new drive rated at 0.7A, so should see benefits from battery life. I chose this 5400RPM model because other reviewers said that the 7200RPM model could be a little noisy. I honestly cannot hear this drive, even when copying back over 140GB worth of data!
