Rated 5 out of 5 by Gibby from Amazingly affordable SSD to revive older computersStop using HDDs!That is all I really need to say when it comes to refreshing your older enterprise computers. If your machine has any "newer" i-series Intel processor (even i3s!), destroy that HDD and throw it in the trash. I have refreshed about 20 older Dell E5530s (circa-2011ish) and they are perfectly capable, fast machines now that I have removed those dinosaur HDDs and replaced them with this WD SSD.Western Digital has been my go-to storage since I was a nerd in school building my gaming PCs and now that they bought SanDisk and entered the SSD ring, I will continue to do so for cheaper reliable SSDs. Not everyone needs a Samsung Evo 950 or an M.2 NVMe unless they are doing some serious crunching. Your average user can't tell the speed difference between an i3 and an i5, they definitely won't see the difference between an SSD and NVMe.They WILL see the difference between an HDD and an SSD. Do them a favor and toss those HDDs when you can buy an SSD for $50(!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dnewp0 from Must have upgrade !Replaced the stock Hitachi hard drive in my MacBook Pro with the Western Digital SSD and my boot time dropped from 76 seconds to 29 seconds.As well, all my apps now load in under 2 seconds and shutdown is 4 seconds. Extremely pleased with the performance upgrade. Cant really tell much difference on battery drain.
