If you picked a larger font, you would definitely get more responses
no no, if he used smaller font, people would have to strain and make an effort to see what he has to say
1. Stop storing the laptop in your trunk.
2. It's $35, try it.
3. Even if it still does check disk, it will be a MUCH faster disk check.

Thanks. I needed a good deal on an SSD for my mom. This is the best price you'll get shipped and with no tax for most. Saw a youtube video, and it looks like it benchmarks better than the similarly priced Mushkin Eco 2 that was on sale earlier this week.

I've seen the reviews about people having issues cloning them. I'll probably do a clean install. My mom does mostly web browsing, but a little snap on the startup and program opening will be worth the price.

I'm sure it's old news, but I used my Amex Offer to buy the $100 ebay gift card (electronic) at Staples even though gift cards are on the exclusions list. It showed up "Staples" on my account, and I got the $25 back. Note that it took about 24 hours to receive my ebay gift card, and about 3-4 business days after to receive the credit.

Depending on the performance of this drive, I might pick one up for my rarely used laptop that's got a questionable drive.

Question: If I only use my laptop like once every 4-5 months, and almost every time I do the initial startup, it does a disk check that takes like 30 minutes or more to complete, does that mean my hard drive is failing? I keep it in the trunk of my car year round.

After it does that long initial startup after sitting for months, it boots up relatively normal afterwards.

Not sure if you're being sarcastic or not, but that's my logic. Having bolded sentences in a longer post makes it more visible to everyone, including the "TLDR" crowd that I admittedly am at times.

SSDs are not appropriate for long-term storage. They have slow transistor leakage and will lose data fairly quickly -- certainly a few months of non-use would do it. (When an SSD is powered on, it has a routine to refresh its own data.)

I was trying to get benchmarks on this thing pretty frequently in the past, but the search results were always mixed with different models. Is the Sandisk SSD Plus the same as the "Sandisk Extreme II" that you referenced? I think that's a different model. Tough to find data on, but I saw someone do a speed test on youtube. He had like a 500mb read, and around 200mb write.

Write speed is less important right?

Get some Silione II from Lowe's and seal it up. It will stop the leak and last forever. And it can be water proof too cause now you can go diving with it! EEK!

yes Im. True, it brings the attention but sometimes negative. Anyway to answer your questions, bring your lappy to your apartment and store it under the bed or something.

Very nice upgrade for cheap laptops Or maybe just to throw your desktop OS on but it's just to darn small for my uses.

SSD is one of the most noticeable cheap easy upgrades you can do.

Yeah, and it worked out pretty well for Donald Trump, but that's the end of that political discussion.

I use it infrequently, but do need it in a pinch, and that's why it's in my trunk.

I'll see how it performs and decide if I want another one. They're frequently on sale for around $40, and maybe I can even snag a better drive for a similar price in the future.

Been using this for about a year. Huge improvement from my Sammy 2.5 HDD. I installed the 240gb version in my friends laptop. The 240gb has fast read and write, I couldn't tell the difference when using normal programs (chrome, Firefox, word). Never had any issues. Great entry level SSD from a reputable company. I highly recommend
