Customer Reviews of Sandisk ReadyCache ISO 32GB 2.5" SATA III Solid State Drive (SSD)
It works as advertised, but if you ever have to restore your computer to an earlier date than when the ssd was activated then it will no longer work. The activation code only works once.
I'm satisfied with this product.
It's an easy way to speed up your desktop4/19/2014
Here's the summary: It's easy to install and it works. You get a nice boost in speed for your Windows 7 or 8 desktop without having to re-install your OS. You simply pop this baby in, download and install the Sandisk software, and boom....your system will get faster after a few hours of usage. I had purchased one of these about a year ago for my main desktop and it has worked great. I just purchased another for the kids' computer. The new one is even easier...you don't even need to find and type in a serial number for the software anymore.
noticeable speedup, easy install12/1/2013
Installation is very simple, works just as documented on Win7. Maybe I missed something in the install, because ExpressCache requires me to OK the UAC dialog each time my computer boots up. Seems to cache a lot of data, and speeds up application startup and boot time, but not the 20s However, it also seems to use a lot of RAM by itself. My machine is limited by the chipset to 2GB, and usually runs at about 1.6G with a lot of Firefox windows open. Now it runs about 1.4G before starting Firefox. Can not find details of how it works, i.e. filter driver, etc. There are two processes running, ExpressCacheApp.exe and ExpressCache.exe. The latter is the sys-tray item, and quitting it reclaims about 35MB.
Couldn't be easier3/28/2013
I've been using this cache drive for a few days now and it's dramatically cut my boot and application load times. Boot up used to be 100 seconds, now it's under 20. On top of that this software just works! No problems like other cache software and it's extremely easy to use. I only wish they made a 64GB version and that their software could cache non-boot drives as well.
