5.0 out of 5 stars Super performance at a low price, 7 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I fitted this in a tired 5 year old Pc. The performance has been turbocharged.

This is a great upgrade at a low cost.

Though I did a fresh install, there is access to free software to clone your current disk.

Too many PC owners worry about GHz this and MB that. This is the best way to soup up a PC bar none.

Remember to set your BIOS to AHCI - not IDE - before installing. Upgrade BIOS first if option not there.

AHCI will make it a lot faster. Once installed, do not defrag disk - there is a task in Windows 7 that you will need to disable.

Do you know what that cloning software is?

In reply to an earlier post on 10 Oct 2013 04:05:26 BDT
There's a few around but Easeus do a couple of tools that would do. They have the usual website tricks to trial the "pro" version but there's a simple home edition that does the job, I've used both their backup (can...probably be used to clone) and partition mastering (definitely has a "clone" option) tools and found them pretty solid.

PC owners worry about GHz and MB for good reason. SSDs shouldn't be used for mass storage.

Why not defrag? Also are you saying never to defrag it at all?

In reply to an earlier post on 31 Oct 2013 11:14:09 GMT
Solid state disks have no advantage from defrag due to how the data is stored and accessed.

In reply to an earlier post on 5 Nov 2013 00:32:16 GMT
The process of Disk Defragmentation places similar files physically closer together on the disc (the HDD where the data is stored), this means the disc has less distance to travel to access the files therefore increasing load times on applications, a solid state drive has no moving parts and therefore the places where the data is stored is purely down to the latency of the drive and not waiting for the spindle to reach the file on the disc, so a disc defrag would mearly cause the drive to potentially run out of blocks (data is stored on a finite (not infinite but a certain number of) number of pages and blocks) to store data on faster...effectively it will wear down the drive faster for no benefit gained

Hi - can you explain this please? I'm thinking of getting a larger SSD, are you suggesting it's a bad idea?

In reply to an earlier post on 5 Nov 2013 16:17:55 GMT
im not suggesting its a bad idea at all in fact im selling my current 256gb samsung 830series ssd to get a 1tb samsung EVO drive, my only point was dont use disk defrag on it :)
