Synopsis: AnandTech SSD Editor Kristian Vättö upgrades an Acer C720 with a 256GB MyDigitalSSD Super Boot Drive M.2 NGFF SSD and also puts it through performance testing against other M.2 and 2.5” SSDs.

Kristian Vättö, SSD Editor for AnandTech, takes us through the easy process of upgrading an Acer C720-2848 Chromebook with a MyDigitalSSD 256GB M.2 NGFF Super Boot Drive. Vättö then runs the SuperBoot Drive for AnandTech Benches - performance consistency, random and sequential performance, performance vs. transfer size, and load power consumption.

It’s worth remembering that there are very few M.2 SSDs on the market and AnandTech comparison lists pits the Super Boot Drive M.2 mostly against 2.5” SSDs, and the Super Boot Drive “does surprisingly well” in their Storage Bench tests.

In comparison to the Acer’s stock 16GB Kingston M.2, the Super Boot Drive functions extremely well and the “performance difference is tremendous”.

The Super Boot Drive did very well in AnandTech’s power consumption test, proving that upgrading your Chromebook doesn’t have to tax its battery more than needed for everyday use.

In conclusion, Vättö adds that the MyDigitalSSD Super Boot Drive “...still substantially faster than a typical hard drive, and the power characteristics are good as well…”

Most Chromebooks come with a 16GB or 32GB SSD so if you are looking to upgrade your current model check our M.2 NGFF Compatibility List to see if your device is compatible.

MyDigitalSSD Super Boot Drive 42mm (2242) SATA M.2 NGFF SSDs are available in 128GB as well as the 256GB tested in this review.
