Dramatic Speed Increase for 2011 Macbook Pro
My friend came to me upset that his 2011 Macbook Pro was getting unbearably slow, so I recommended that rather than buying a new $2000 Macbook and having to deal with the hassle of reloading all his software and transfering documents, that he simply spend a tenth of the price to speed up the one he currently has with this SSD. I helped him do a clone of his old hard drive to this SSD and after that was done we loaded this in and turned on his computer, and everything was still there but his loading time was at least 5 times faster than previously, and his applications loaded almost instantaneously. He is very happy with the performance increase.
One problem you may run into is that you may have to re-input the product key for your Microsoft Office software if you have that installed, as it is tied to your hardware and any hardware changes like this one will deactivate your current registration.

These are the greatest things since sliced bread. ;)
They give your computer wings!
My old HP laptop restarts in under 30 seconds since I swapped out the C: drive with this baby.
If you can take the back off your laptop, you can do it.
Get The USB to SATA adapter & cloning software,Apricorn SATA Wire Notebook Hard Drive Upgrade Kit with USB 3.0 Connection ASW-USB3-25 (Grey)
or similar, and clone your drive. Then swap them out.

It speeds up the time to open applications
This SanDisk SSD PLUS 240GB Solid State Drive was placed in my old computer as an upgrade along with a 2G vid card and it works great. It speeds up the time to open applications that are installed on the drive, enough so that I don't have to upgrade the mother board or RAM. I should get another 2 years out of a computer that is already 10 years old, then I can easily transfer it to a new build.

Brought new life to my old laptop!
I bought this to replace a hard drive that crashed in my laptop. I'm not sure about the actual read and write speed performance but I know I went from waiting to what seemed like minutes for it to boot up to it booting almost instantly. I was simply amazed at the difference. After the performance boost that I got from this I am going to buy another to put in my old desktop.

Highly Recommend this product!!
So far setting this up as my C drive and boot drive I have noticed it takes 2 seconds to start up compared to the 3 mins it took to startup before i also have less issues with programs that are installed on my old hard drive this one is decently priced and i do plan on getting a bigger version of this product so i can have more then just the boot up and graphics software on it as the space gets used up fast, either way i highly recommend this product and its decently priced for a SSD.

Great Upgrades - Easy & Cheaper
This SSD pumps us the performance of an older machine running Windows 7. Transfering the HD was a snap with Acronis SW, recommended by HP for their all-in-on desktop being upgraded. The total transfer time using 3.0 USB interface was under 4 hours for 250GB. SSD is working perfect after months of useage.

Uber speed & power savings for the laptop
This drive replaced the 120GB HDD in my Thinkpad T60 - you just don't know how well your old laptop can run until you ditch the mechanical Disk drive. 18 second boot to the desktop instead of 2 minutes. Apps open really quickly. And the power draw is less than an HDD. Awesome.

Great price and faster boot times.
So far, this is a great SSD for the price. It works as it should, and my i7 Core Win10 PC boots in only a few seconds now.

The cheapest upgrade you can make to your computer and will probably make the biggest difference. I added these to two different Dell Inspiron laptops, old laptops I had sitting around that I decided to rebuild and upgrade for family. Makes a world of difference.
