Yeah I agree with RetiredChef, the model you are looking at is a really good price for an SSD and it is one of the faster ones out there.

If you just wanted to see an increase in performance that is greater than your current HDD almost any SSD that you could randomly pick would give you a drastic performance increase. It just so happened you picked out a fast SSD among SSDs, and also a reliable one. In terms of it lasting a long time, for the average user it will probably last atleast 5 years or more (Just don't go crazy with benchmark software or try to keep your SSD at full capacity.)

Good luck!
