this was the cheapest around , the SSD is awesome, updated by daughters macbook pro early 2011.It had a 500gb hard drive and replaced with this 256gb, keep pictures and music on external drive now.
You will really not need to buy a new laptop, update the SSD yourself, new memory and it breathes new life.
1. attach the SSD to a dock, e.g. Max Value MVF00390 Hard Drive Docking Station
2.Go on MAC disc utility, look at the dock with then new SSD inserted, partition with "one partition" and in mac format
3. then download super duper, make sure you have the upto date programme form the proper web site,
[...] is where you find it, 2.7.1
4. this programme ask you the source and accepting or new disc
5. do the "mirroring" of the internal drive on your laptop with the external drive on the dock so you produce a copy, make sure the data quantity doesn't exceed the new disc capacity
6. let duper duper do the rest. Dont forget this is free, a small donation is helpful, this programme is awesome.
7. when its finished go on "start up" and select the new SSD on the dock,
8. restart and check the new SSD boots up ok
9. follow the OWC web site instructions and change the old HDD of for the new SSD, [...]
10 Bingo
11. speed ++++++
I have basic hardware skills and it took 3 hours, most of which is the duplication of the disc, the rest is easy.

Because of the seriously low price, I bought this to use inside an external eSATA case, for a Windows 8 x64 PC.

On connecting the case to the PC, Windows did not detect the drive, which is because it needs to be initialized within the Disk Management tool before it can be used. I opted to initialize as GPT and then formatted, upon which it was readily available.

Once it appeared within My Computer, write speeds were as follows:

eSATA Write (20 x 160mb files) = 97.4 megabytes per sec (slowing down to 52mb/sec in places)
eSATA Write (20 x 15gb files) = 125 megabytes per sec
eSATA Read (1 x 16gb file) = 163 megabytes per sec

Perhaps there is some reduction in transfer speeds as I was connecting it internally, but no doubt nobody will ever get near the quoted speeds on the Amazon Product page (350mb/sec). Copy 220gb of large files therefore took me about 30 minutes, which isn't bad.

Overall, at this price, I couldn't recommend the drive highly enough. Sure there will be faster models, but the price will reflect that!

much more realiable than a model from another manufacturer it replaced. Fast load times - fast read write times - very good value.

Fitted to a Dell laptop to help speed up boot times, boot up has gone from 20 to 30 mins to seconds. Price is right, hardly gets warm. When the box arrived, I thought that Amazon had forgotten to pack the drive as the box was so light!

If you go online, to SanDisk you can download a free SSD manager (Windows) this monitors the drive and can update the SSD firmware if needed. Came with latest version installed.

At the moment, I'm still waiting for the downside, there isn't one!

Failed after only 20 months of very light use. The SSD was used as C drive in Win 7 PC and all data including user profiles, databases etc. were stored in 2 separate ordinary hard disks, in order to keep the read/writes of the SSD to a minimum.
However, Sandisk SSD Dashboard reported that the disk is faulty (The number of spare blocks has reached the minimum threshold) after only 20 months and very light use and although the same software reported that 99% life remaining on the SSD. Sandisk support verified that, said that failure is imminent and that I need to ship the disk from Greece to Czech Republic, and after they have checked it, they will ship a replacement after 7-10 business days!!! So this means at least 3 weeks without a PC and with no way to work, since I am professional developer and Sandisk was used as C - System drive.
Finally, after complaining for this policy they agreed to bend it a little and ship me a replacement without requiring prior receival of the faulty disk. In the end, it was more convenient for me to use the PC sellers services. After some hours of trying to figure out, they tried a big transfer and the disk completely failed to write with blue screen of death. So it was replaced under warranty with another SSD.
Beware and monitor your disk regularly with Sandisk utilities!

Sandisk are no amateurs when it comes to memory. They have consistently innovated and provided reliable, affordable and fast storage to the masses, and this SSD is no exception. This isn't the first SSD sandisk have created, so they are no strangers to the industry. When it comes to SSD storage, you want the fastest read speeds possible, because thats means your computer is going to be able to load applications and data quicker. This SSD achieves a read speed of about 430 - 470MB per second. These speeds are at the top end of the performance chart, meaning your boot times, application loadings and general system responsiveness is going to feel super fast and snappy. However, where the cost is significantly reduced is in the write speed. This SSD is able to achieve write speeds of up to 200mb, which isn't blazing fast but by all means not slow. For pretty much most users, a slower write speed and a super fast read speed is going to be the same, as they will never utilise a higher write speed, because you will be reading data more often than writing, and when you are writing data, 200mb is a large amount, and isn't going to bottleneck you. When you consider the price to other SSD's with the same storage capacity, you cant go wrong. This SSD is considerably cheaper because you are paying for what you do not and not paying for what you don't need. Its perfect for anyone, whether it be someone who just wants to browse the internet or a power gamer looking for fast loading times and no texture lag, this SSD is going to serve you well.

If you are looking for an SSD to give a new lease of life into your system at an affordable cost, then this is the one to go for.
