SATA

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 was worried that I had to have a tech install the new chips. Not the case.
    Even a novice like me can do it!

      Works great! Arrived only a few short days after ordering and installed without trouble.
      The memory has made an improvement to an otherwise outdated laptop and allows me to be able to continue to use it for a while longer.
      Many thanks!

              I tried using memory cards from a major electronics chain, thinking I would save time and money. After installing, the computer wouldn't boot. I returned the cards, tried again, and same thing. I finally used the scan tool on Crucial to see what was available for my machine and found this 2GB kit. I installed it, along with an upgraded operating system, and it has worked perfectly ever since.
