5 out of 5 eggsFirst time living in the fast lane.

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme II SDSSDXP-480G-G25 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It's not a mechanical drive. Fastest in its class. Everything loads quickly, and when I'm making music, samples don't slack behind. This should keep me happy for many many years.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme II SDSSDXP-480G-G25 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Great buy for the money. Fast, reliable and over provisioned out of the box. I frequently recommend this drive to clients and use it for my own rig.

The performance and reliability of this drive, just like the fist gen, is fantastic.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: I upgraded to this drive in Dec 2013 from the first gen 240GB model. Also a great drive I now use to boot Linux.

For those wondering...the reason it is 480GB and not 512GB is because of its over provisioning, which extends the life and performance of the drive. It actually has about the same 512GB on board as other drives but the over provisioning makes it invisible to the OS.

5 out of 5 eggsMy Choices

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme II SDSSDXP-480G-G25 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: As fast as it advertises. Good quality and price compared to other SSDs.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I had the first ed. of this drive and I had no complaints. I built a new pc and decided to go all out when I saw Sandisk came out with this second ed. I decided to spend the money to check it out. I have to say you cant go wrong with Sandisk. They make there living on the different types of Memory sticks and cards so fro them making the leap to SSDs was a no brainer. You cant go wrong buying from a company who specializes in memory and who's products are top notch. I tried other SSDs and this performs just as good if not better than others and there prices are just as good if not cheaper than others. SOOOOO you cant lose purchasing this drive.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme II SDSSDXP-480G-G25 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Very fast for the capacity.

Is capable of being filled to the brim with data and still run very fast consistently.

It tells you the amount of host write / reads to the SSD (My old Plextor doesn't)

It uses a Marvell controller and Sandisk's own chips, which make for a good SSD drive.

Cons: There's no bracket or screws included. It does come with a spacer though, but that's usually only needed if you're installing this into a laptop.

I can't really complain about price at all, I paid $420 for my Plextor M2P 256 GB back in 2010, and this is double the capacity, has a longer life span, and is almost 100 MB/s faster than it.

Other Thoughts: I'm using this as my new OS drive for Windows, since I have to upgrade my motherboard in order to use Crossfire Pro for my two FirePro GPUs. My CPU is a i5 2500K on a P67 chipset (New Motherboard is a Z87 though).

I got this "used" from another site for $210. It was only turned on for 1 hour and only had 40 GB written to it, which is nothing at all. For $210, I got a crazy deal.

I'll try to review this drive in a few more years to see if it stands up to the test of time.

Also, there is no firmware update yet for this drive, but you should still check for one with the SanDisk SSD Toolkit every month or so.

Speed according to Crystal Disk Mark (9 passes at 4000MB):
Sequential:
Read: 520.9 MB/s
Write: 480.9 MB/s
512K:
Read: 336.5 MB/s
Write: 435.5 MB/s
4K:
Read: 32 MB/s
Write: 77.79 MB/s
4KQD32:
Read: 393.2 MB/s
Write: 280.8 MB/s

5 out of 5 eggsOne of the Best SSDs Available

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme II SDSSDXP-480G-G25 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: SanDisk's own NAND and custom in-house firmware for the Marvell 9187 controller.
Firmware design for better low queue depth performance, typical for the PC environment.
Excellent performance consistency.
No need for user over provisioning.
No performance loss when it is filled to near its capacity.
Five year warranty.
Price.

Cons: Seems to have an issue waking from Sleep in Windows 8.1. Fortunately this is a firmware issue that can be fixed, if it is found to be a common problem

Other Thoughts: No RAID support? That is false. Check the recent TweakTown review of two to six SanDisk Extreme II's in RAID 0 on a Z87 mother board with six SATA III ports. The performance surpasses that of an SSD considered to be the best by many users and in reviews.

The somewhat unusual capacities of 120, 240, and 480GB are due to factory over provisioning. That is, more NAND is set aside for use by the SSD to maintain performance. These SSDs still contain 128, 256, and 512GB of NAND respectively, plus the usual amount of factory over provisioning space. All SSDs require extra NAND for optimal operation, a basic trait of NAND storage. The more over provisioned space, the better for SSD performance. Enterprise SSDs commonly have 50% of the stated user capacity added as over provisioning space. Due to the high price of NAND storage, manufactures kept the over provisioning space on consumer SSDs as small as possible, which really does not benefit the user in the long run. Testing has shown that extra user over provisioning is not needed to maintain performance consistency, something most of the other few top SSDs cannot match.

TRIM support in Apple/OSX products is intentionally difficult to enable for non-Apple SSDs, not the SSD's fault.

The SanDisk Extreme II and the earlier Extreme model use very different SSD controllers, and mixing them in a RAID array is not a good idea. The original SanDisk Extreme is one of the best SSDs using the SandForce 2281 controller, but these two SSDs are only related by being made by SanDisk.

One of the very best SSDs available today.

5 out of 5 eggsSanDisk Extreme II SDSSDXP-480G-G25 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme II SDSSDXP-480G-G25 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: - LOVE IT!!!
- The speeds of this drive are very consistent, providing a great user experience. as I have not experienced any type of slow-down with this drive at all
- Price - got this guy on 'sale', price was just about $0.50 per GIG!
- Size - So far, is definitely ample enough space
- Running 2 virtual environments at the same time:
1) M$ Windows 7 Ultimate via Parallels ( M$ Office Outlook, an XManager, TextPad, and a few, 7-10 overall, programs that I prefer to run through windows {Mac Office version lacks important features, such as email Auto-Archive}
2) A *nix environment, Network Management Product, (that constantly SNMP polls my network, and is constantly doing tasks, such as constant small SQL writes and queries) running via Fusion
- Speed. I really need to reiterate this, as everything runs SO smooth with this drive! No slowdowns for booting, opening ANY app, Outlook email searches are FAST! (that's the ultimate test there, as I have over 100GB of emails stored in PST files {and a very large, active OST file} and doing searches on that large of a dataset is historically VERY slow! Enough to cause a computer crash with a non-SSD... My search queries return in SECONDS! Have never experienced this before, with ANY other SSD I have installed)

Cons: - No official RAID Support
- Third-party TRIM support is required (OSX)
- Odd size - What's the deal with the '120G' instead of 128G, or '480G' instead of 512G? What is gained by this?

Not that that really affects anything about this SSD, and my 'Cons List' is HARDLY a CONs List at all; RFE's would be a better term for the list provided.

Other Thoughts: My environment:
- Late 2011 Macbook Pro
- 2.4Ghz Core i7
- 16GB 1333 DDR3 RAM
- OSX Lion 10.7.5
- Main Disk Drive: SanDisk Extreme II SDSSDXP-480G-G25 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
- Secondary Drive: Samsung 470 Series 128GB (SATA II)
- MediaSonic PRO RAID enclosure, Running 4x 1TB WD Blacks in RAID10 config (Solely used for Time Machine; 70MB-80MB/s write/read via FireWire 800)
- Synology 1813+ NAS for all other storage needs (completely saturate a 1GB network link when writing to the NAS! > 100MB/s transfer speeds, read AND write!)

Before this drive, I had two 470 series 120GB in RAID0 config
Macbook Pro - late 2011 - Optical Slot does NOT support an SATA III Disk Drive, it crashes all over the place (cannot format either drive even!
Drive config was then:
840 Pro's - 2x 256Gig, attempted RAID0 (THEN I found out could not use SATA III in Optical Slot!) {These are now in the NAS as a RAID0 Volume, currently used for "staging"; decrypt/untar of very large files. etc..., and intend to use it as a LUN when I get a dedicated box to run virtual instances}

Because of Lack of SATA III Support, Config changed to:
Main HDD Slot: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB
Optical Slot (second HDD): Samsung 470 Series 128GB

The 470 128GB RAID0 performance was better than the single 256GB 840 Pro, despite the 840 Pro 256GB transfer speeds and IOPS being noted with a higher rating than the 470's in RAID0, but didn't perform any where near as well; what a disappointment! The Extreme 2 blows everything else away.

Installed the Extreme2 480GB, Cloned from the other SSD to the Extreme using a USB3.0 cable that the Extreme came with (only have USB2.0 ports on my machine) and everything went off without a hitch.

My machine has NEVER run better than current.

Started to receive LOTS of slow-downs! Was totally unexpected! Although I have been a very brand-loyal consumer, decided to try the Extreme 480 (more space). I did not expect the drive to perform SO WELL!

This is the BEST AND FASTEST SSD I have had (in this particular machine)

Once I upgrade my Macbook Pro (to get the SATA III Support to install an SSD in the optical drive, I will be getting a second one of these to run in RAID0.

- The new 1GB EVO TLC drives cannot be considered; I was going to get until I found out the following: he software which enables the drive to have the noted performance, ONLY works in an M$ Windows Environment. Otherwise, the SSDs are not very fast {I also work with files larger than 12GB on a consistent enough basis, that it's simply not work the gain in space while destroying performance to that degree, because I'm not running the correct OS to enable the performance of the SSD)

4 out of 5 eggsgreat drive, wish TRIM support was better

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme II SDSSDXP-480G-G25 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: easy to install, fast boot times, quick application launching times, and amazing application install times on my mid macbook pro 2012.

Cons: very fast drive, BUT when enabling TRIM support on my macbook pro (to extend the drives life, maintain read/write speeds, etc after prolonged use) the macbook encounters a problem waking up from sleep.

upon waking from sleep, the macbook freezes about 45 seconds before you can login again, i believe its faster to shut down and boot up then sleeping the laptop.

however, this problem goes away when you disable TRIM, i hope theres a firmware update or something to address this issue because i would like to have TRIM enabled.

i'm a student and constantly moving from room to room so having the ability to sleep and wake from sleep instantly would be beneficial

Other Thoughts: if installing in a macbook pro, don't forget to have a T6 torx screwdriver ready to take the mounting screws off your old harddrive

5 out of 5 eggsFresh Windows Install Shortens Boot Time

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme II SDSSDXP-480G-G25 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Top-tier quality.

Sandisk has their own NAND memory factory.

5 year warranty

Cons: Costs more than my last PC.

Other Thoughts: If you do a fresh install of Windows on your new SSD it will surely boot up faster than your previous SSD. This is because you haven't added a bunch of apps, games, and other stuff that loads at startup or that Windows has to check before boot up is complete. A good example would be our original Sandisk Extreme 240GB SSD. Even when it's 52% full it maintains near-original performance according to CrystalDiskMark, AS-SSD and ATTO benchmarks. Not every SSD can do that. BUT, the bootup time gradually became longer when we added more stuff to be included at startup. After a year of use Windows bootup time was about 32 seconds. After doing a secure-erase and a fresh install of Windows the bootup time was down to 20 seconds.
Fast bootup is always impressive, but adding new apps and startup processes will increase the time it takes to boot. Still, the Sandisk's working speed will continue to impress long after the bootup time is forgotten!

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme II SDSSDXP-480G-G25 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Plenty of space for lots of data. This SSD replaced my 300GB Velociraptor HDD. With the HDD, my Window Rating was 5.9. As soon as I put this bad boy in, my rating went all the way to 7.8! Very satisfied with my purchase.

Cons: The only con is that this SSD was very expensive. I will eventually purchase more of these SSD's as soon as the need arises.

Other Thoughts: Hopefull these awesome SSD's will eventually be not so expensive.
