SanDisk flogs strap-on to speed up your lazy Windows 7 PC

Retrofit SSD plus caching software

Boost IT visibility and business value

SanDisk has brought out a cheapish solution for flash-less Windows 7 PCs. The firm promises a start-up time that is four times faster as well as app-loading that's 12 times faster if you buy its new SanDisk SSD and caching software bundle.

The ReadyCache package includes a 32GB SSD, a 3.5-inch mounting bracket, a 6Gbit/s SATA cable and screws. Once it's installed on any Windows 7 PC, you can download the ReadyCache software from SanDisk's website, install it and watch your PC accelerate.

The software is built by Conducive Technologies and SanDisk has exclusive rights to it. It contains algorithms that find frequently used files on one or more hard disk drives in the PC and then place a copy onto the SSD.

SanDisk claims the package will help your PC start up to four times faster, shut down in a few seconds and load applications up to 12 times more quickly. If multi-tasking performance is hobbled by swapping to disk then it will become much smoother as well.

ReadyCache costs 60 bucks, has a 3-year warranty, and can be bought from Amazon and NewEgg. ®
