I have used many SSD's over the years and I can easily say I am the most pleased with this one. It is fast, lightweight and extremely reliable. In order to fully utilize the benefits of this SSD in either Windows or Linux, I would recommend the following:


- TRIM is enabled by default, so you don't have to turn it on.
- Disable System Restore. This wastes writes on the device and shortens its lifespan.
- Disable your pagefile. When using an SSD this quick it is not needed and it also wastes writes. Just make sure you have at least 4GB of RAM in your system if you do this.
- Turn off timestamps on NTFS. This is unnecessary and can reduce the life of your SSD.


- Turn on TRIM. You can do this by adding discards to your /etc/fstab. You may also want to add noatime as well.
- Add a persistent RAM Disk assuming you have adequate amounts of RAM.
- Use a low latency I/O scheduler (e.g. deadline).

With these options enabled, you will get the most out of your SSD and wonder why you waited so long to get rid of you old spinning hard drive.

Note: If you want to make an exact copy of your existing hard drive to your new SSD:

- Grab and external USB drive carrier that will accept your old hard drive.
- Download a Gparted Live boot disk.
- Take your old hard drive and place it into the external USB drive carrier.
- Install your new SanDisk SSD.
- Boot your system into the Gparted Live Boot Disk.
- Run Gparted and note the drive ID for both your new drive and old.
- Open a terminal and run: dd if=/dev/sdX of=/dev/sdZ (where sdX is your OLD drive and sdZ is your new hard drive. The actual ID's will most likely be /dev/sda and /dev/sdb).

I edit HD video, Terabytes of it. Upwards of 1000 clips per project. I've been relying on a great but slower raid box which i have some green drives in. It's reliable as heck, but i've been desiring a smaller, faster drive, which i could keep my current projects on as a scratch,

Importance for editing video
-Editing is tons of IOPS/read/write operations. Comparing my old drive vs this one you can instantly see the differences: When opening the project with 1000 files, how fast does it open? in adobe premiere it shows you the countdown of all the files it's re-connecting to when you open. Old drive: over a minute. Sandisk: a few seconds.
-Playback and clicking between different points in time. Old drive: some lag, some hiccups. New drive: instantaneous, almost all the time.

Other SSDs?
-I was dead set on the 960gb M500 for awhile, it's a great bang for the buck, but my friend turned me on to the deal this one had for $369, and noted in reviews, the M500 was a chunk slower in certain operations than this sandisk.
-The samsung evo pro is probably the equal competitor, similar performance, similar price, but this drive on sale edged it out for me.

What's to like
-Got it for under 78 cents per gb. not as great as the 50 cent per gigabyte deals, but this is much better than average SSD
-Capacity is good if you're editing compressed footage, can fit a feature film plus a lot more from C100 24mbit files. If you're editing RAW files, probably should RAID multiple of these
-High IOPS. This is just as important as read/write, espectially for video editing, which is tons of referencing.

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.
