SanDisk ReadyCache SDSSDRC-032G-G26 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I have a 7-year-old Dell D620 laptop that I wanted to rejuvenate into something suitable for simple tasks (Internet, word processing, watching videos, etc.) at home and during travel. So I got this little SSD as an inexpensive boot drive.

I installed Lubuntu Linux as a lightweight OS that is efficient and doesn't take up a whole lot of space on the admittedly small drive. The result is like a brand new machine. Lubuntu boots in under 10 seconds, applications load instantly, etc.

Cons: Small capacity, but nowadays flash memory is ubiquitous, so I can always use that if I need more. Works for my purposes.

Other Thoughts: I recommend this to anyone who wants to give new life to an old machine. Just make sure it takes regular SATA drives and not mSATA or IDE.

Intel 510 Series (Elm Crest) 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Everything said in every other review is true: this thing changes the way you look at computers. It makes every other computer seem slow in comparison. Applications load nearly instantly, and loading screens are a thing of the past. Windows 7 boots in under 10 seconds. I picked the relatively more expensive Intel drive for its reported reliability, and have had zero issues so far.

Cons: Not free, doesn't butter my bread, doesn't pick up after my dog, etc. The price is steep but you get what you pay for IMO.

Other Thoughts: I'm using this drive with an AMD motherboard, and while I have not been able to get the maximum read speeds advertised, it's still blazing fast. As I understand it, those of you who go the Intel route may get somewhat faster read speeds. Don't let this discourage those of you who have AMD--it's still great.
