What customers say about "Features"
Toshiba TR200 480GB SATA 6 Gbit/s Solid State Drive
  • Installed this in another MacBook unibody excellent product. Improved boot up time.
  • The process is simple and has tuned a frustratingly slow machine into a super fast machine.
  • Works well and is very fast. Have had no problems with it, love Toshiba products!
  • Good product, good price does exactly what it says. First rate, very responsive.
  • Cheap and well made. My laptop is a lot faster now. Very fast loaded Windows 10. Installed easily.
Kingston A400 Solid State Drive (2.5 Inch, SATA III)
  • Very light, easy to install (unscrew case, unscrew old drive, screw in new drive).
  • The drive is very lightweight, easy to install. Seems quite fast.
  • Fairly easy to install and to clone my existing drive .I'm not disappointed!
  • Only drawback was that I thought it would be easy to clone the old drives to swap the new ones in, but that was a total pain, so ended up doing a fresh install and copying data across to new drive.
  • My issue is that there is no drive imaging software support from Kingston for the this range of SSDs, most disappointing.
