Storage Drives -- hard drives and solid state drives -- are the permanent memory for the programs and documents on your computer.

Data Transfer Rate is the rate at which data can be sent or received. This is determined by your motherboard. A drive with a higher transfer rate will only run at the rate of the motherboard's transfer rate.

Cache is a type of working memory that allows the drive to perform faster.

RPM is the rotations per minute of a hard drive which effects the speed of data transfer.

Solid State Drives are non-moving memory, so access speed is instant.

                I installed two of these kits in my Power Mac G5, which was badly in need of an upgrade. Rendering is much faster in Final Cut Pro now and I haven't had any crashes since the install, whereas the machine used to freeze regularly while I edited. Very pleased with the product.

                  The 4GB max for this G5 model used to be great, but I wish the hardware would allow for 2GB DIMMs to be installed. For a computer this old it still is holding its own though.

                    We got a G4 for free from a school my husband teaches at, but they had stripped it down to the basics -1GB. I downloaded Crucial program which identified what Memory kits I could use. I choose the one I wanted and ordered it. Putting it into the computer was very simple. I had done it before with other computers so I didn't even check the manaul. On this model you just have to push really hard until it snaps in and the clips can close. The computer is working great now. It's amazing what adding more memory can do. Everything is much faster, even the monitor looks better. It's really simple don't be afraid, just follow the directions in your manual.
