I have an old laptop that I wanted to speed up a little so I can use it for college. I'm on a *REAL* budget with covid and lack of jobs for younger people so I decided on this SSD and hoped for the best.
I am really happy I did so far - installation was easy of course - the same as any other SATA drive. I used disk cloning software with a SATA adapter to move my previous info and programs over after allocating a volume in disk manager on the new SSD. Cloning went as fast as my slow CPU/DISK combo went, the SSD provided ample speed and didn't bottleneck at all (of course).
In use my laptop is WAY faster, it boots in seconds rather than a minute or more, programs load way faster, and after running it in crystaldiskmark and ATTO the speeds are exactly as projected by the manufacturer. The size of the (admittedly small) drive is exactly as described, no smaller.
I've been using it for over a month now and I'm still happy. No glitches or failures.
Overall, highly reccomended!!
