Jason, South Africa. 6 April 2017

Great device, runs like a dream. Games load so much faster. However, the software provided is crap. I had to re-install everything from scratch ....

Warren, South Africa. 14 December 2016

Upon the recommendation of various people decided to "upgrade" my laptop from a WD 1TB SSHD to this SSD. Did a clean install of windows 10- and now everything running well (did not use the cloning software as per recommendation of other reviews). So what is the outcome? Boot up time is very quick- and when installing new software it is almost instantaneous (read & write time is excellent). Battery life has gone up a little. But other than that- no great advantage- it is just a little better- and if you not constantly writing data that must be done instantly, and are not worried about a boot up time of 30sec or greater- this not going to offer any significant day to day working advantages. So yes there are certain benefits over the former WD SSHD- but not R2300 worth of benefits- and also it is half the size (which is a significant benefit to the HD). If it was R500 more than the equivalent HD I would say it is a no brainier- but it is more than double the price for a SSHD that is double it's capacity- that kind of now makes it a tough decision. Maybe it will be more secure in the long run?- but considering the reliability I have had with WD hard drives in the past (never an issue)- thinking of putting my 1TB SSHD back in- the space is the big deciding factor- and the speed of the SSD is not as much a difference to make giving up that space worth it.

Corne, South Africa. 6 April 2017

Incredibly easy to install and very very fast. I'm very impressed with this product as my laptop feels like a new one with boot-up and loading speeds almost halved. I did't use the cloning software that comes with it, but instead opted to use EaseUS, which cloned my 300GB HDD in no time with no hassles at all.

I can strongly recommend this SDD

Andries, South Africa. 23 January 2017

Good product, thank you.

Zaid, South Africa. 2 November 2016

The SSD itself works perfectly. Immediate improvement in performance on my laptop as well as almost double the battery life. I would give it 5 stars but after installing the recommended Acronis clone software, I experienced problems with my Windows 10 explorer freezing often. Found a forum thread on Microsoft that indicated that many users identified the Acronis 2015 software as being a common component that caused this. Otherwise, the drive itself is definitely worth having.

Shaun, South Africa. 8 December 2016

Easy to install and migrate data. Serious value for money.

Erick, South Africa. 12 January 2017

Very happy with this guy. My startup time is 10x faster and my laptop puts out less heat with games and processor-heavy projects.
