1 out of 5 eggsAnother sandisk paperweight

Pros: It's an SSD, it should be awesome. It was. A long, long time ago.

Cons: Died in about a year. A sandisk SSD that dies in a year, after my previous sandisk SSD died in a year... what terrible products.

Other Thoughts: I bought a Sandisk 120GB SSD just over 2 years ago. It died after 11-12 months of use. Sandisk tech support (after about a month delay) sent me a Sandisk 240GB Extreme SSD. Fresh install, good as new (I thought).

Fast forward to now. After another 12 month period, the 240GB Extreme is dead.

Will Sandisk send me a 480TB EXTREME XXVI SSD that dies in 12 months? Is it even worth my time? I'd prefer to just have my money back.

tl;dr

120GB SSD dead after 12 months
240GB SSD dead after 12 months

5 out of 5 eggsAfter 6 Months of Use...

Pros: Plenty of Pros: I have had zero issues with the drive and it has worked beautifully from day one. I did patch it with the latest firmware when I first got it as a precaution and Sandisk's software support was easy to use. They even have a "youtube" like tutorial walkthrough for most things.

Drive boots up beautifully and has been reliable over the last 6 months.

Cons: Outside of price I got exactly what I paid for. One minor con might be that it didn't come with a 3.5" bracket but there are plenty of inexpensive and simple solutions available on NewEgg. In a pinch one could just keep it loose in a desktop option or secure it with a single screw while waiting for a solution to arrive.

Other Thoughts: This was my first swim in the SSD market and am glad I took the plunge. The drive is invaluable as a springboard for larger to load programs like 3ds max, ZBrush, Photoshop and Aftter Effects. When planning a build try and plan to have your major software suits on the main SSD and displace all non-essential files and programs to more traditional storage solutions (Mechanical HDs)

SanDisks's site and support felt solid and professional (firmware update) but I have not had any major issues with the drive so I have not seen "the other side" of customer support yet.

2 out of 5 eggsDisk died after less than a year

Pros: Fast. Nice capacity for a SSD.

Cons: Died. OS is locking up. Running SpinRite on it, and finding unrecoverable sectors.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: Very fast read and write speeds.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I've only been running two of these for about a week now, but as long as they don't break on me, they are great!

2 out of 5 eggsDoesn't Like Extreme 4?

Pros: This drive is fast.

Cons: Wouldn't work in Intel SATA ports on my Asrock Extreme 4 Z77 Mobo. I kept getting BSOD with 0x000000F4 error. After lots of unsuccessful attempts to fix this, I finally installed the Asmedia SATA 3 drivers and the drive worked in there, but slower - Which is why people prefer to use the Intel slots. Then I started getting program crashes followed by windows crashes. Tried to reformat and couldn't install Windows 7!

Nothing worked. Secure erase didn't help. Clean all command in cmd prompt finally helped. Still couldn't use Intel ports, not even SATA 2 ports! Got windows installed but had corrupt files so I finally gave up after DAYS of trying. I tested everything... RAM, removed hardware, updated BIOS and all latest drivers. Finally I bought a mechanical hard-drive. Popped that in and everything worked completely normally just as you would expect. Slower... but in a way a 1 minute boot-up is better than a 20 second boot-up that crashes and corrupts everything it touches.

Other Thoughts: Weird part: I put this drive in a cheap Asus AMD build and it works fine (though the board only supports SATA 2). That's why I gave 2 stars...

Like another reviewer on here, this was an upgrade from a perfectly functional, smaller SSD. Ugh.

Oh and I bought this from Newegg on an auction site sale and a week after I got it they said they couldn't RMA but I could try going through Sandisk... I won't forget that one Newegg.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

My name is Allen from SanDisk support. The drive may not be functioning on Asrock Extreme 4 Z77because of multiple reasons. We would need to look into possible factors towards isolating this issue.

We would also suggest you to please update the firmware of your SSD using the link below:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/10476/

I would also strongly recommend you to update your intel RST SATA driver as BSOD on a particular SATA controller has been to be observed to be driver related.

For further assistance resolving your issue, please contact SanDisk support at 1-866-SANDISK or submit a support request at www.sandisk.com/support.We will assist you towards a resolution including a possible warranty replacement.

Thank you,
Allen,
SanDisk support

5 out of 5 eggsSolid performer for me

Pros: Been running 24/7 as my main OS drive, since I built this rig, last April. No hiccups with this drive since day one. Still has 50GB free. Loaded with Win7 Pro, Adobe CS5 Master Suite, Lightroom 4.4, Battlefield 3, VMWare Wrkstn, Office Enterprise, Qiuckbooks, Acronis, and lots of other cr@p. I multi task like a mother, running LR4, PS, Premiere, Encore, plus Chrome running tabs all at once. I feel this drive hangs with the cpu and ram just fine. I just need more storage space now.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD5 LGA 2011 Intel X79
i7-3930K OC'd 4.0GHz
Corsair H60
32Gb(4x8GB) G.Skill Ripjaw Sereis Z Ram
4 WD RE4 1TB in RAID 10
10GB RamDisk
GIGABYTE GV-R585OC-1GD Radeon HD 5850

5 out of 5 eggsCouldn't be happier

Pros: FAST!!!
Windows bootup & start at lesat 4x faster
Almost no application crashes or page-fault hangups
Working perfectly for almost one year in my HP G79

Cons: Size vs. Price

Other Thoughts: I also have 2 Samsung HDD's in my desktops. I haven't done any benchmarking (its hard on SSD memory) but this drive is subjectively comparable.

5 out of 5 eggsHighly recommend

Pros: Great drive. I figured sandisk is a reputable company for memory devices, why not give them a shot. I know have a bunch of these deployed. I the past I stuck with Intel, Samsung and occasionally Micron/Crucial.

Cons: None
