The arrival of the solid-state drive (SSD) has revolutionised the speed at which modern PCs perform common tasks. This is because SSDs have no moving parts, compared to larger, bulkier mechanical drives, thus they store information on memory chips. This means that accesses, reads and writes are many, many times faster

240GB WD Green 3D, 2.5" 7mm SSD, SATA III - 6Gb/s, 3D NAND, Read 545MB/s, Retail is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little SSD for use as Boot Disk/System Disk Excellent SSD to use as a Boot Drive/System Drive for Windows. Spacious enough to install program files on and quick. Also currently under £30. Ideal if used in combination with a larger physical disk for storage purposes - such as a 4 or 6TB Toshiba P300 disk drive (both sold by SCAN (Scan Codes: LN104238 and LN108239 respectively). Thoroughly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SSD upgrade Easy transfer of new SSD into laptop to replace old hard drive. Very happy with speed of booting and saving items.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from cheap and fast Price is really good. The only difficulty to get reliability data for this drive - does not show TBW data (interestingly they spec 100TBW for Blue drive) I expect Green 120GB in 40TBW range and 240GB in 70TBW range based on Anandtech data. Therefore i use it only for my Windows installation, all other files (including most Program Files as well) will rest on a HDD and personal data is backed up. The drive tool for SMART and other checks is a bit basic compared to Samsung, you can not overprovison this drive with Western Digital SSD Dashboard. So it is a good basic drive, not for huge data write/read cycles but serves you well in your system.

The speed is amazing much faster than a normal HDD. I strongly recommend this ssd it’s WD you cant go wrong! And as well as this, the speedy and very secure service from Scan themselves!
