Congrats to Adriana D. of Miami, Fla., for winning a Panasonic Link2Cell home handset in last week's giveaway. Want to speed up your computer's hard drive? Read on.
This week, we're giving away a fast replacement for any hard drive, a 240GB SanDisk Extreme II solid-state drive.
The SanDisk Extreme II is 2.5mm thinner than the previous SanDisk Extreme, but it has a lot more than that going for it, according to CNET reviewer Dong Ngo.
"In my testing, the new and trim SSD offered fast performance, comparable to that of even the fastest consumer-grade SSDs, while costing well less than $1 per gigabyte," Ngo writes of the product. "The drive can work with both laptops and desktops, but unfortunately, doesn't come included with a drive bay converter to fit easily in a desktop, which is its only shortcoming, and a minor one."
With a suggested retail price of $279.99 and prices online ranging from $215 to $280, the SanDisk Extreme II brings high performance at a price point many consumers can afford. So how do you get one for the extra affordable price of free? There are a few rules, so please read carefully.
