This is a spacer that needs to be attached with this SSD so there will be no gap between the body and SSD in my next video I will be installing this SSD into my laptop and showing you guys the whole process so do watch my next video let’s open this SSD and see what we have got inside the best part of these SSD is that they are very light in weight.

Fully electronic-based

Fully electronic-based whereas the hard drive has a motor to operate it which makes it heavy and bulky the size of the PCB is so small and it’s less than half the weight of the hard drive. This is how slow my VC takes to turn on with my old Toshiba hard drive it’s a minute and 25 seconds that’s more than enough time and it’s just a turn on after I log in.
