Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement is just like original! The hard drive works just like the original. Great to have the same capabilities as before. The only problem is that I can not upgrade to Win10 on this hard drive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Conventional to SSD makes old laptops new again Our 11-year-old Dell laptops are like new when cloning the OS from a 7200rpm conventional drive to this SSD drive. The boot time and overall response time to access applications is unbelievably faster. If you do a little homework and download a disk cloning ISO, you just need a USB cable to do the transfer to the new SSD drive, swap them out when done and Windows 7/10 boot right up.
