Do you want to replace your traditional hard disk drives (HDDs) with solid-state drives (SSDs)? I want it. But do we know how to do it? Now we can count on Samsung, thank to the company’s 470 Series Solid State Drive that comes bundled with a full version of Norton Ghost 15 software. The software enables Windows users to safely migrate their existing system data by making an exact copy of their HDD.
Samsung’s six new 470 Series SSDs, three of which include desktop upgrade kits and all of which include Norton Ghost, are currently available in the U.S. through numerous online and retail suppliers, including Amazon, Fry’s, Micro Center, Newegg and TigerDirect. Prices are expected to be $119.99 for the 64GB version, $229.99 for the 128GB version and $459.99 for the 256GB version. Available in the same capacities, the SSDs with upgrade kits cost an additional $10, and include:
- A premium aluminum bracket for installing a 2.5-inch SSD in a 3.5-inch drive bay;
- Serial ATA 2.0 and power cables;
- Installation screws and instructions.
