What customers say about "Key Specs"
SanDisk SSD Plus1 Old Version
  • I needed more capacity for my PC and the solid state drive provides just what I needed.
  • The 250 GB capacity is perfect for a primary drive, plenty of room and small enough to cut down lag.
  • It's prices very well, as well as fast read/write speeds. Its great for replacing that old hard drive in a laptop.
  • Works awesome. Fast read and write speeds. Excellent replacement drive.
  • Quickly degraded. While read speed still good, write speed dropped below 30MB/s.
  • Write speeds are a little lower than some other drives in the same price range, but I felt like reliability would be good with the sandisk brand and was worth the slight decrease in write speed.
Samsung 850 EVO 500GB 2.5 inch Solid State Drive
  • Install was easy and the write/read speed were very close to advertised speed.
  • It has read speeds of around 540 Mbps and will greatly improve you system speed. I have had users ask me what I done to their computers because it is so fast now.
  • The drive has great read and write speeds. The drive also fits within the drive bay as it should.
  • Reading/writing speed increased considerably for all my programs. I highly recommend.
  • This really gave my old PC a boost as far as speed and storage capacity.

What customers say about "Features"
SanDisk SSD Plus1 Old Version
  • This configuration is considerably faster than using a flash drive and the form factor isn't ridiculous.
  • Gets full read/write speed when Sata 3 controller is present.
  • The SanDisk - 240GB Internal SATA Solid State Drive Plus delivers great performance for a good price.
  • Quite fast for a memory card. Have no complaints. Highly recommend.
  • It boots up fast and no complaints yet.
  • My one complaint is that it required the user to download third-party software to clone a disk. This caused a bit of confusion and was inconvenient.
Samsung 850 EVO 500GB 2.5 inch Solid State Drive
  • Uses normal SATA III interface and was recognized by computer with no problem.
  • If your system supports SATA 3 only, you won't be disappointed with this; I personally bought a few, and never had an issue with any of them.
  • Very fast SSD and offers 256-bit encryption, I cannot find a better SSD than this one.
  • The 32-layer 3D VNAND flash memory ensures reliable performance, and AES 256-bit encryption keeps my data private.
  • No reduction in start-up time. Still takes about 20-ish seconds. Not bad, but I don't understand why there isn't at least a little improvement.
