Is Upgrading to an SSD worth it?

This is why we say an SSD will improve your computer's performance by 5x. It will feel like 10x! We offer a guarantee, if it does not improve the computer's speed, send it back for a full refund. With an SSD installed, everything becomes snappy again, apps load instantly, the computer boots up quickly, you feel like you have a new computer.

Its Alive

I was successfully able to bring a 2009 MacBook Pro back from the dead with this drive. Reduced to glacial speeds from the original OEM 2.5" hard drive the installation of the new Crucial SSD enabled me to install macOS Monterey. It really works like a new modern laptop despite being 15 years old.
