              Replaced my SATA II drive with this drive based on price and previous success with the transcend brand. This has held up to my hopes/expectations. My machine is virtually silent now and allows me to zip through whatever I may be looking to do at the time.

              I've had this for well over a month now and no signs of even a slight hiccup in functionality. I would definitely recommend this to people looking for a carefree computing experience.

              Comments about Transcend 256GB 2.5" SATA III SSD720 Solid State Internal Drive:

              I bought this to replace the HDD in my wife's Macbook Pro. It took me a while to clone the data from HDD to it due to I didn't read the manual thoroughly. It turns out Transcend provides the utility to clone the data. And it was pretty neat.

              Now my wife has been using her "new" MBP for almost 2 weeks and she was happy. I am glad I don't have to spend extra money to get a new laptop. This SSD is awesome. I think it's one of the best SSDs you could get at the price range.
