Frequently Bought Together
Product Overview Boost your PC’s performance up to 28x with an easy and affordable upgrade to SanDisk Ultra® II SSD. You’ll enjoy no-wait boot up and shorter application load and data transfer times than your traditional hard drive ever delivered—plus longer battery life and much cooler, quieter computing, too. No matter how you use your PC, SanDisk’s nCache™ 2.0 technology makes for a better experience, delivering consistent high speed and endurance.

Everything You Do On Your Computer—Faster
How fast does your data transfer? How fast do your apps load? Could you brush your teeth in the time it takes for your PC to boot up in the morning? For most users, speed is the first thing on the wish list. Thanks to the innovations in our nCache 2.0 technology, SanDisk Ultra II SSD literally does every task faster than a typical hard disk drive. What used to take minutes happens in just a few seconds.

Performance Means More Than Just Speed
Speed is important, and SanDisk Ultra II SSD delivers it, but our performance test results measure more than the fastest speed a computer can achieve for a few seconds at a time. Performance means how long you can count on that speed, how consistently your PC responds, how many things you can do at once without stalling out. It means how well your drive withstands the stresses the world hands out. On a whole range of important metrics, SanDisk Ultra II SSD performs up to 28 times better than the hard disk drive you’re using now.

Huge Storage Capacity, Built In
You keep lots of tunes, photos and videos on your PC. You use it for socializing, shopping, banking, email and your online classes. You play games—by yourself or with other people. Add a few more dozen handy apps. And then there’s work. Amazing how much space those presentations, PDFs, spread sheets and documents take up. With SanDisk Ultra II SSD, you can add enough capacity for everything you do on your computer and still have room to spare.

Runs Cool and Quiet
Hard disk drives were great in their day, but let’s face it—they had their downsides. First your laptop would get so hot you couldn’t really hold it on your lap. Then the fan would start up and make a lot of noise. Sometimes you blew through your battery in what seemed like the blink of an eye. With a SanDisk Ultra II SSD, all that is history. With no moving parts inside, your PC will run cool and quiet, your battery will last up to 15% longer and you’ll use less electricity too

Always Know What’s Going On
With our SanDisk SSD Dashboard, you always have visibility into how your drive’s performing, what firmware updates are available, and what you can do to maintain peak performance. Features • Up to 28 times better performance than a typical hard disk drive.
• No-wait boot up and shut down.
• Faster app load and response times.
• Up to 15% longer battery life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Does exactly what I was expecting Read and write speed same or higher as per specifications. 11 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product great hard drive, very good price and fast delivery 05 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Change from HDD to SSD I swapped the HDD on my laptop for this SSD. I was surprised how easy it was to do, the only extra I needed was an external SATA III enclosure to clone my old drive. I'm amazed at the difference in speed, everything is 3 times faster and I'd recommend this upgrade to anyone. The SanDisk SSD is very good value and so far has operated without fault. 03 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Breathe Life into a Laptop I bought this in the Black Friday sale at a great price, no specific need. Now installed into my ageing laptop, transformed from a frustrating slow loader to a greyhound out of the OS blocks. THE agility upgrade for any computer. 01 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good size 2.5" SSD, very fast, good value Easy to install and upgrade my laptop. 480Gb storage capacity is very good compared to my previous 120Gb that came standard in my laptop. I used Acronis to backup and then restore on the new SSD 29 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works, big, fast Bought this to provide extra space for programs on a gaming machine. Some trouble getting it installed right, but that's Windows fault, not the hardware. Now it's in, it has provided a lot more space and is working nice and fast - much faster than the HDD that was already there. If I did an upgrade like this again, I would probably go about it differently from a software PoV, but would have no hesitation in using this hardware again. 27 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works as expected. Scan and Sandisk great combination. Even better at Black Friday price £80 01 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A must have piece of tech this days All i can say that is my first SSD i used to have only mechanical ones witch are the regular HD. Basically everything loads much faster, downloading speed got higher, copy/move speed is higher. I also need to say that i have a very good PC with i7 4790 processor, 16gb of ram, with a 970 nvidia card. I haven't used any programs to test it only what visually i saw and the difference i can make. In many places they write SSD is 10 times faster then regular HD well my opinion is that maybe up to 5 times from my other HD. What i would like to mention is my other HD is a SS-HD the ones that were supposed to be as fast as a SSD and have the space as a HD but i didn't saw any difference, when i installed the SSD i saw the difference. The reason i choose a SSD with enough space on it is because i copied my entire old C partition to my new drive without needing of windows installing and i have all my programs installed and everything. It worked and i have no complains everything runs, i had no problems with any programs or games. Just search a bit on the web and you will find it, i did it with a free program. Before you want to start this i advice you to make sure you have knowledge in hardware and software, it can get a bit tricky. 29 December 2015

This should fit in the Lenovo X201 laptop, it supports 2.5" drives at 7mm form factor which this Sandisk is in terms of dimensions.
