SanDisk Extreme 2.5

5 out of 5 eggs Good performance for a lower-power drive 10/05/2012

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

Pros: Solid performance numbers, lower power draw at peak (compared to Samsung 830), and stability so far. It's been a great performer for me.

The price per GB of storage fell to under the magical $1/GB, which does help to make the drive more accessible.

Cons: Thus far, I can't find any real faults with this drive. It's performed every bit as well as my Samsung 830.

Other Thoughts: I've only had a single SSD fail on me (Micron C4, which they replaced quickly), but this drive is still a relatively unknown. I'm hoping that the Sandisk quality is up and the drive won't fail.

Micron RealSSD C300 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The drive was pretty fast, particularly when set in RAID0 with a twin drive. Data flew off of it...

Cons: However, one of the pair of drives collapsed after 7 months and checking Micron's site for instructions on RMA is an exercise in futility. There is simply no actionable items for a consumer unless you have a Crucial-branded drive... Not particularly good for a drive that you'd think would be business friendly... give the ability to contact them at least.

OCZ Core Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I got decent read speed from the drive but...

Cons: I tried this drive using both Windows XP SP3 & Fedora 9. This drive has a HORRIBLE write performance and you'll see in long pauses in the OS. (It's not as pronounced when using Linux, but it's still not nearly as good as the original 5400 RPM laptop drive)
Windows XP was absolutely unusable, but I also own a Super Talent 128G and that does fairly well in another laptop. So I know it's the drive. OCZ just shouldn't be marketing this...

Other Thoughts: I really, really wish OCZ wouldn't have put out that garbage... I used to have very high views of them... but now I won't look at their technology the same.
