Fast Performance for Gaming, Multimedia, and More

Upgrade your computer or gaming console and enjoy fast, reliable performance with the SanDisk Extreme II Solid State Drive. This SSD features a storage capacity of 480 GB (1) and delivers sequential read speeds of up to 545 megabytes per second (MB/s) and sequential write speeds of up to 500 MB/s (2). This allows you to multitask, run graphics-intensive applications, and transfer large files with ease, as well boot up and shut down your machine without having to wait. SanDisk's tiered caching across storage layers optimizes the write speed and disk endurance and ensures your data is stored in the safest place.

Designed to Keep Your Data Safe

Housed in a durable aluminum case, the SanDisk Extreme II has been engineered to resist shocks and vibrations, preserve the integrity of your data, and prevent data loss. Dynamic and static wear leveling help extend the life of the drive, while over-provisioning and over-clocking ensure consistent performance even under the heaviest workloads. Other features include bad block management, which prevents uncorrectable memory errors, and thermal throttling, which protects critical drive components against extreme temperatures.

Quiet, Stable Operation and Low Power Consumption

Unlike traditional hard disk drives, solid disk drives contain no moving parts, making them cooler and quieter and less likely to break. SSDs are also more energy-efficient than standard HDDs for longer laptop battery life. According to a SanDisk research paper, an SSD can extend the life of a laptop by up to 33 percent (3).


SanDisk SSDs are engineered to deliver sustained high performance over time.
Sustained High Performance for Gamers and Professionals

Rather than focusing on peak speeds, which may be achieved only for a few seconds at a time, SanDisk maximizes real operating speeds and performance consistency over a long period of time. Thanks to a Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) of 2 million hours (5), the SanDisk Extreme II can deliver years of fast, reliable performance.

Tiered caching across storage layers increases write speed and disk endurance.

Faster Write Speeds and Safer Data with nCache

To optimize the user experience, the SanDisk Extreme II contains nCache technology, a large, non-volatile write cache that consolidates small writes to boost random write performance and the long-term data endurance of the drive. This proprietary technology from SanDisk is designed to mediate how modern-day operating systems and flash memory interoperate. The result is faster response times and better multitasking without stuttering.

An ideal upgrade for a laptop or desktop computer or a gaming console.

Reliable Performance with an Extended MTBF

Like other SanDisk solid state drives, the SanDisk Extreme II offers a Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) of 2 million hours based on a parts stress analysis. MTBF is the predicted amount of time the drive will operate without failure and is a measure of reliability. Consequently, you can get more out of your computer or gaming system with less downtime.

This SSD monitors and provides updates on its health status.

Monitor the Health of Your SSD in Real Time

Thanks to S. M.A. R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology) capabilities, this solid state drive can detect and report on various indicators of reliability and alert you of an impending drive failure while there is still time to take action.

SSDs deliver cool, quiet operation and consume less power than typical HDDs.
The Advantage of SSDs

Why replace your computer's hard disk drive with a solid state drive? SSDs offer a number of advantages over traditional hard drives. Because they contain no moving parts, SanDisk SSDs are less likely to break and they deliver cooler and quieter operation and consume less power than standard 7,200 RPM hard drives (4). In addition, SanDisk SSDs are cased in aluminum and are rigorously tested to withstand shocks and vibrations. This, along with fast read and write speeds for games and more, makes an SSD a compelling option, and it's easy to remove an HDD and install an SSD without losing any data.

This SSD is quite an improvement from my Toshiba HDD that I had before in my laptop but I'm really impressed by how lightweight this new drive is and how fast it.
MOAR COARS
Another plus with solid state drives - without moving parts there are no motors, without motors the heat generation is minimal.

I now own this Extreme II SSD.

I also own a 240 GB SanDisk Extreme SSD where Windows 8 was installed. This is the original Extreme not an Extreme II.

I copied the original Extreme(full Win 8 backup) to this new Extreme II drive and did a comparison. I would struggle, in real world testing, to be able to tell you what the difference in speed does for me between these two drives.

That's going SanDisk Extreme SSD to SSD. If you are still running on a platter based hard drive, the speed boost seen either in the Extreme II, or the now less expensive Extreme, is absolutely one of the best choices you can make in order to make your PC (that's Mac or Windows based PC) perform at a level you can't see with a platter drive.

What I recommend is to buy an SSD for the OS and apps. Use a platter based drive, 1 TB+, for all of your media and files. I also highly recommend a physical USB3 backup drive to backup your data as well.

So what's the difference on paper between the Extreme and the Extreme II? Random reads and writes are roughly 40% faster on the Extreme II. Random reads are only 7% faster. Sequential reads and writes are about on par, with the Extreme (original) eking out about 10 MB per second better than the Extreme II. If I had a choice though, the Random Read/Write, being both a lot, and a little, better on the Extreme II, and if there was price parity, I would go with the Extreme II. You do more random reads/writes than sequential, generally speaking. You aren't likely to really notice the difference in practice moving from one to the other, unless you do a lot of hard drive intense operations.

If you are a gamer, just go with the Extreme II now.

Size Name: 240 GB Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This SanDisk SSD is a bare bones drive. The box contains two items, the drive and a plastic spacer, nothing else. If you have done an SSD upgrade before and have the SATA to USB adapter (or a SATA drive enclosure), or are going for a clean install of the new drive; this is the drive to purchase.

February 24, 2013 Update - Well the unthinkable happened, the drive went totally 100% completely belly up - it is bricked after eight months of use. The drive died with absolutely no warning - no read errors, no noise, it just died instantly. Lesson very well learned on this drive - back up, back up, back up. I'll say it again, back up your drive every single day. The bad news - the drive failed. That's just not a good thing at all.

So of course this review goes from five stars to two. SanDisk gets an extra star for support. Their on line chat was outstanding, within 5 minutes they agreed with my diagnosis, and started the RMA processes. They will take the drive back, pay for shipping, and send me a new drive - in about a week. I understand, there isn't a way to ship me a new drive immediately and I will just have to wait. In the meantime, I'm heading over to the Samsung page and buying an EVO 500Gb. When the SanDisk arrives, it will go in an old netbook I don't use much.

March 13, 2014 Update: There was a problem with SanDisk's customer service computers and getting me an RMA. One afternoon I received a phone call from somebody higher up in customer support. He managed to ship me a new drive and get me the return label for the dead drive. It took a few more days and the replacement drive arrived. Kudos to SanDisk for not giving up and making the replacement right.

Size Name: 240 GB
I recently got a brand new laptop (Lenovo ThinkPad T431s) that comes with a Toshiba 7200rpm HDD so I decided to get an SSD to speed things up because I got tired of waiting for applications to load. So I decided to go with a SanDisk Extreme II 240 GB and man, SSD's will make any computer feel like it's from the future. The ThinkPad T431s is already fast because it comes with 4GB of ram and a core i5-3337U but swapping the HDD with an SSD made it 100x faster. I feel like HDDs really hold back a computer's performance. The SanDisk Extreme II 240GB literally blew me away by the performance that it has. My Windows 7 disk experience score went from 5.4 to 7.9 which is the highest it can go on Windows 7.

I do a lot of backups and transfer large files with my laptop and it used to take forever when I had my HDD but now everything is blazing fast. I know that this product literally came onto the market just a few days ago but it seems it's receiving very good reviews and so far I'm very impressed! When I was on the HDD, I would get around ~5hrs of battery life but now I'm getting around 6-7hrs. I travel a lot so battery life is very important to me and being able to have an extra 1-2hrs is awesome. This SSD is quite an improvement from my Toshiba HDD that I had before in my laptop but I'm really impressed by how lightweight this new drive is and how fast it.

It also generates almost no heat and is obviously silent to the ear. I couldn't stand the weird noises that my Toshiba HDD would make during the night. The access and read speed are as advertised and I did a benchmark with CrystialDiskMark, the results are below. I use my laptop for video editing/web development so I use programs like Adobe After Effects, Dreamweaver and Photoshop quite a lot.
