Engadget giveaway: win a 960GB Extreme PRO SSD courtesy of SanDisk!

Jon Turi, @jonturi

Looking to optimize your gaming PC or breathe new life into last year's laptop? A high-performance SSD should probably be in your bag of tricks. Recently, SanDisk improved its own offerings in that area with its new Extreme PRO SSD. This solid state drive amps up responsiveness, leveraging the company's nCache Pro Technology to handle heavy workloads -- especially graphic intensive ones. That's why SanDisk has provided us with one of its top of the line 960GB models for one lucky Engadget reader this week. With nearly 1TB of space, the drive has tons of room for games, files and big applications, while keeping things flowing with read/write speeds over 520MB/s. And it's compatible with any PC, laptop or game console that can handle a 2.5-inch SATA drive. All you need to do is head down to the Rafflecopter widget below for up to three chances at winning this super-charged SSD.

Winner: congratulations to Richard J. of Kaysville, UT.
