Summary: Includes the software and hardware to clone an existing spinning laptop (or desktop) drive. I had one drop-shipped to my Mom and talked her through the cloning / removal / replacement process while on the phone. Easy-peasy! I've used these kits several times in the past with zero issues.
Summary: THIS drive came with a 3.5" mounting plate and everything needed AWESOME not to mention it looks great !! works just the same too :)
Pros: Works great ,Looks great no issues over the last two years .l use for OS booting and main programs ,i've learned over the years to use a separate boot drive easier to redo and saved docs etc on a separate HDD (never lose stuff again) .it boots fast runs faster than ever .USED to have two raptors ...
Cons: SATA connection is weak watch how much stress on the cable connection and location of the drive 90 angle sata are great for this reason !!
Summary: I bought mine on Black Friday 2013 for $99 CAD, same as the sale price as of this review. I use my computer a lot, as in many hours of daily use. 365 24\7. The disk shows 8572 power on hours. I have my OS (Win 7), and my most used programs on it, including editing software which I use a lot.
Pros: Faster read speeds than a HDD - about 3.5x faster Good enough size for an OS and frequently used programs It's lasted 16 months so far
Cons: Read speeds are OK, but the write speeds are poor - not only in comparison to other equivalently priced SSD's - but it's only marginally better than my HDD's There are better options in this price range than when I bought mine
