There is no better way to speed up your laptop or desktop than to replace the standard hard drive with a solid state drive. And, what more could you ask for if you are going to get a 120GB of Solid State Drive at very affordable rate?
The SanDisk Ultra Solid State Drive is the one I am talking about. With a sub-£70 price tag, the Ultra SSD will speed up your computer considerably with faster boot times, nearly twice as much as compared to standard 7,200-RPM hard drive.
With sequential read speeds of up to 280 MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 270 MB/s, the SanDisk Ultra might not be one of the quickest drives out there but, practically thinking, most of the regular computer operations don't need that much of speeds anyway.
Another great thing about SSDs is that unlike traditional hard drives they don't have any moving parts thus ensuring that it is better equipped to withstand shocks and vibrations. The overall operations are cooler and it consumes less power compared to the standard HDDs. Ideal as a primary drive that will hold your operating system, the SSD doesn't have compatibility issues with any major operating system out there - be it Windows, Linux or Mac.
The connectivity interface is SATA II with 3Gbps speeds and the SSD is backed by three-year limited warranty.
The SanDisk 120GB Ultra Solid State Drive is available from £65.98.
