Want to breathe some new life into your aging PC without breaking the bank? Amazon is running a sale on a few SanDisk SSD Plus solid-state drives at very attractive prices that are simply hard to refuse.

The SanDisk SSD Plus is a standard 2.5-inch SSD that communicates with your system through a normal SATA III connector. Unlike rival entry-level SSDs that sport TLC (triple-level cell) NAND flash, the SanDisk SSD Plus product line employs MLC (multi-level cell) NAND flash chips, which are more reliable and durable.

The 1TB variant delivers sequential transfer speeds of up to 535 MB/s reads and up to 450 MB/s writes. On the other hand, the 480GB variant features sequential read and write speeds of 535 MB/s and 445 MB/s, respectively.

SanDisk backs its SSD Plus solid-state drives with a three-year limied warranty. The company also includes its proprietary cloning software so you can migrate your current system over to your brand new SSD quickly and easily.
