Sandisk Extreme II 240GB review

 

The latest Sandisk SSD shows the top drives how it's done

Five year warranty ; Good all-round performance ; Good price

Not fastest in any metrics

What sort of a fist has SanDisk made of the 9187 chipset in this latest Extreme II SSD, then? Pretty stellar, actually. Direct comparisons with the other Marvell 9187 drive in this test, the Crucial M500 , are tricky due to the gap in capacity. The...

Sandisk Extreme II SSD review

 

But prices had dropped considerably in the last two years, and with affordable flash drives like the SanDisk Extreme II we can now go flash for the magic figure of 50 pence per gigabyte.

The SanDisk Extreme II would have stood out as a well-balanced high-performance SSD among its peers 12 months ago. It still does in spring 2014, and now additionally benefits from keen pricing.

Sandisk Extreme II 240GB Solid State Drive Review

 

Well known vendor, Handles compressible and incompressible data just as well as each other., Fast read and write speeds, ~95k read IOPs and ~78k write, Amazing value for money

Controller not as well known as SandForce

For many people, looking for a new SSD generally results in a SandForce powered drive being purchased due to the fact that the large majority of drives on the market have one of these very successful LSI made controllers at their heart. As with all...

SanDisk Extreme II 240GB SSD Review

 

Today we are looking at the latest high speed Solid State drive from Sandisk, the Extreme II. This follows on from our review of the Ultra Plus 256GB Solid State drive which we reviewed back in March ...

strong IOPS performance ; good with incompressible and compressible data ; 7mm chassis – compatible with super thin laptops

Currently quite expensive

Kitguru says: A killer flagship drive from SanDisk. They mean business.

SanDisk Extreme II 480GB SSD Review

 

The last time we saw the SanDisk Extreme SSD it wasn't exactly “extreme.” It was a fine drive and all, and we awarded it a “what a nice boy” verdict of 8 because it was decent, but it didn't blow off our anti-static leashes or anything. The problem was...

Below average PCMark score; middling IOPS at 32QD

SanDisk Extreme II 480GB SSD

 

The SanDisk Extreme II 480GB SSD internal solid-state drive is a great opening volley into the high-end consumer market.

Excellent price/performance ratio for under $1 per GB.

There are significantly cheaper drives for customers willing to trade performance for value.

Now, there's nothing wrong with buying a lower-end budget SSD because you value storage space over speed and want a drive that provides more of the former while maintaining many of the benefits of the latter . But we suggest evaluating the Sandisk...

SanDisk Extreme II review

 

The SanDisk Extreme II solid-state drive (SSD) has a lot more going for it than just being 2.5mm thinner than the previous SanDisk Extreme .

The SanDisk Extreme II offers faster performance, is now available in a 7mm design, and has a friendly price tag.

There's no desktop drive bay converter or other accessories included.

The SanDisk Extreme II is a speedy replacement for any hard drive, and it won't dig a big hole in your wallet.

SanDisk Extreme II Review (480GB, 240GB, 120GB)

 

A few weeks ago I mentioned on twitter that I had a new favorite SSD. This is that SSD, and surprisingly enough, it's made by SanDisk.

Assuming there are no strange compatibility issues or firmware problems that develop, the Extreme II will likely become one of my most recommended SSDs. Far too often I have to supply the caveat of "make sure you don't fill the drive!" whenever I...
