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.

          With continually slow performance prior to new kit, installing new device is a great all-around improvement. As a casual user it made computer time friendly once again.

            Installed in MAC computer per my MAC manual; no problems. Suppose to speed things up; I don't notice a difference and things are still hanging up. Not sure it's product related but a MAC issue at this point.
            Good service, product as advertised.
