Being my first SSD and it's going into a 4 year old SATA II laptop, entry level should suffice. For $65, it just might bring some new life to this oldie but goodie. Time for a fresh install anyway. I'll put the old HD into the DVD slot for storage. Just received a caddy for this yesterday, so perfect timing. - Thanks
OP thanks for posting though. Keep the ssd deals coming!!! Repped
I agree. If you're really on a budget or you're buying it to upgrade a SATA-II system it might be alright, but Samsung EVO and Crucial M500. though a little more expensive, beat this on value. I upgraded my brother's old Dell Inspiron 530 with this SanDisk because it was on sale for $60, but if I could do it over again, even on that old SATA-II system which even needed a BIOS update for AHCI mode, I would have spent $10-$20 more for something with higher 4K random performance.
If you're looking for a budget drive, just avoid the Kingston V300. Even though this SanDisk is like a drive from a by-gone generation, the sequential reads are still twice as fast as the Kingston V300's they've been putting out lately.

why would u spend more for a faster ssd especially for a midrange setup? real life differences between them are next to nothing. Just because some synthetic benchmark spits out a higher number ? I'd say get the cheapest one per GB.
