Who are you people?


Sales staff?

Can't think of any other reason someone would post the same product but more expensive on a deal..

Think he's talking about the people who cry about Amazon's tax situation

What’s the read and write speeds like on these ?

Can someone help me out here. I'm not sure what this is - I'm assuming its an SSD for laptops only, specifically only laptops with the correct (an M.2?) slot? Are these slots quite standard on laptops these days?
Thanks for any help.

WD's official spec sheet only quotes the read speed, as up to 540MB/s.

Scan state it has a write speed of up to 465MB/s.

No. You need to look up your laptop's specific make and model, and find out whether it has an M.2 slot. If it does have a slot, the next thing to check is how big it is.

99% of the time somebody will already have talked about upgrading to a SSD, so a quick Google should get you all the answers you need.

Some desktop motherboards also have an M.2 slot so that you can plug an M.2 SSD straight into them.

Again, there's no substitute for checking the specific details of your make/model. That's the only way to be certain any particular drive will fit and be compatible.

If you have no M.2 slot you can stick it an a caddy and use as a 2.5inch SATA drive. I'm guessing this may be a waste of the advantages of the M.2 interface (SATA will be slower?) but I'm not an expert. Good price for 240GB though!

They are also on some newer motherboards for PCs; I refused to buy one for my son having spend a fortune on a new build; he has had to stick with a regular SSD.

hmm tempting

Considering getting this for my laptop cause of the speed, but ive just spend most of my money on a faster one for my main pc. Hot for laptop builds regardless!
