EDIT: Alternative free cloning software: "AOMEI DISK Backupper". In order to do clonning, you'll have to share their software on any social media (facebook, google+ or twitter) & copy/paste the link of your post. Yeah, annoying, but hey, its free! And its a very clean looking & user friendly software. Thanks.
The Good: They are cheap, and they are available in smallish sizes for good capacity/price ratios. For me, that makes them the perfect upgrade from rotating rust in older computers. Especially those computers running as servers or embedded machines.
My favorite application for these SanDisk SSD Plus drives is as upgrades from spinning disks in Linux|BSD servers. They are perfect as the Boot/Root Drives in those applications. They are available in the tiny sizes 32G, 64G, that Open source OSs can use. And they are wholly appropriate in any application where your speed will be limited by the SATA bus. They are also good for those people upgrading older Macintosh hardware. I have a 60Gb SSD Plus in my Mac Mini media server. All of my media is stored on the network anyhow so I don't need a lot of storage there. But this drive is worthwhile for the improvement it provides in boot and program load time. I've brought new life to my very first MacBook by replacing the rotating drive with a 120Gb SSD Plus. That machine's boot time dropped from 2+ minutes to less then 30 seconds. And the laptop is quite usable for web browsing and email again. All of the machines I mention are limited by their SATA Bus which is generally SATA I or SATA II. I those situations, the speed difference between this and one of the new Samsung EVOs is irrelevant.
I have just ordered two Crucial BX500 from Amazon. The SANDISK has not place in my system (a Lenovo TS440 Tower).

Ok so the drive will be inside your machine and won't be seen, but first impressions count. The SanDisk drive has a very cheap plastic feel to it which made me wish I had opted to spend a little more and get the SamSung drive. However, on the plus side, if you're using this drive in a laptop, the plastic casing will help save a little on the weight.
Performance in a 2010 MacBook Pro is good and radically changes the user experience compared to that of a mechanical drive. The boot times are super fast, application load much faster than before and due to the fact that solid-state drives have no moving parts, they also help preserve the battery life also.
In summary, the SanDisk drive is a good product and performs very well. The only reason I've scored 4 stars and not 5, is simply down to the fact that the build quality feels cheap when compares to the SamSung Evo.
I say most cost effective way is to run an SSD like this as the system drive, with data stored on traditional cheaper spinning disks.
For performance sake, security footage is saved on the SSD and then backed up onto the normal drives.
It is still (touch wood) working just fine after even 3 years. Definitely a huge performance improvement over a traditional spinning disk.
For me this is a full recommendation and thumbs up for reliability. Would definitely keep sandisk in mind.
I bought this SSD to change my old Macbook Pro 2010 HDD. But before doing anything I had to transfer the data form my old HDD to the new SSD and... I had problems to make it work. the Mac was not able to recognise it at all when connected through USB. It looks like the SSD comes with no Partition at all therefore if you want to use it first you need to be sure you can create a partition and format it. It did not work both Mac or Windows PC.
Fortunately I have computers knowledge and I have the means to make it work: more than 1 computer at home. I had to take my PC and connect this SSD to a SATA connection ( as I said, forget about USB right out of the box ), create a partition and format it.
If I would be person with no computer knowledge or no other computer at home to do the job... i would be mostly doomed.
No good SANDISK, no good... please make a partition ... so people does not have this issue.
Then If you want to use it in a Mac you will find that the SANDISK soft to check the SSD is not available for Mac. Again... no good SANDISK, no good at all.
Besides all of that the SSD now works and it improved my old computer performance, it works correctly.
But because 2 issues above I CAN'T recommend this SSD for regular users as there is a unnecessary complexity. I CANT't recommend this SSD to advance users either because the performance is average.
So generally I don't recommend this SSD drive and I might not buy any other SANDISK SSD for Mac computers because I am a little bit disappointed about 2 incomprehensible decisions ( no partition , no Mac soft ).
I use this SSD as only for the Operating System (Currently Windows 10) and for main programs and games, and it seems very fast, both for reading and writing, compared to other drives that I have used in the past.
- much quicker PC startup time. With an SSD for the operating system and an old HDD for data it took around 25 seconds to boot up to the login screen. With two SSDs and no old HDD to take time spinning up, it takes about 12 seconds.
- quicker data access. The old HDD would often spin down to save power, so opening files on it would often be delayed by 5-10 seconds as it spun up again.
For info I bought one of these [[1-Year Warranty] VicTsing 5Gbps USB 3.0 to SATA 22 Pin Adapter Cable With USB Power Cable For 2.5" Hard Disk Driver] and plugged it into the SSD and a usb drive and quickly copied over the data from the old HDD.
I thought this upgrade to a new SSD was at first somewhat self-indulgent (and why not!!??) - but having got used to it now, I'm really pleased with it and wouldn't go back to the old disk.
It has incredible reading and writing speeds, and will boot your pc/mac in half a heartbeat.
The computer boots in few seconds and the applications boots instantly, but the biggest bonus is the computer will run smoothly and never have lag issues when dealing with loads of opened apps.
Another improvement is the noise... it is so strange to have a macbook so quiet: it is incredible how the mechanical hard drive was noisy compared to this SSD!
I was lucky to buy it for 39 pound during a black Friday and I could say it was the best investment ever for my pc.
Reading speed: up to 530 MB/s
Writing speed: up to 440 MB/s
Sata 3.0 (6 Gb/s)
During my tests it performed almost as SanDisk declared performance:
Read: 516.0 MB/s
Write 355.9 MB/s
I have a sandisk ultra 2 and a ssd plus and i cant really tell any difference in performane, i guess you may do if you did lots of data transferring but for normal pc use / gaming id recommend going with the cheaper ssd plus. These drives are a must for a gamer too as the difference in load times makes it well worth it. On black ops 3 im into a multiplayer game waiting for people to catchup and login within 1 minute from starting the game in steam. On a normal hard drive you would be talking upto 3 mintues. Black ops 2 loads almost instantly too to mention an older title.
What size of drive should you get?
I think the best cost effective configuration to go for a 256gb & 512gb combo. install your os and apps on the 256gb drive and dedicate the other drive for large files such as games/downloads etc. I run windows 7 pro with numerous apps installed and have 160gb left which will be ample for years to come. I use the the larger drive for steam games as some games can be as big as 50gb and will only get bigger.
I would avoid a 120gb ssd drive at all unless you are running a home version of windows 7/8/10 or windows xp as these versions use a lot less storage compared to the pro.
In all one of these drives will certainly make your pc like new and stay fast as new i wish the prices of a 1tb drive were more resonable as i could scrap my mechanical drives for backup data.
I have installed a huge number of SSDs over the last few years - ranging from Crucial to Samsung, and SanDisk is now becoming my favourite. This is mainly because of value (for its price, I've found them to be the best on the market).
The big thing to remember is that, while some SSDs do have faster read/write speeds than others, in reality a normal user won't notice that difference - it's nowhere near the huge gap that moving from HDD to SSD is!
I've installed SSD Plus drives in Desktops and Laptops (both PC & Mac) and each time the performance boost is extraordinary.
I highly recommend these units!
Performance wise for single access the device is really good, however, you do have to ensure your motherboard supports the 6gbs speed to get the best out of the unit.
I personally attached the device and could not tell, without installing the SanDisk support software, what speed the unit was running at, so you can be underclocking the unit and be unaware without using their software, but quickly I did spot my mistake and attach the unit to the right high speed SATA point in my machine, in order to take best advantage of the new drive.
Installing an operating system (I tried both Windows 7 and Ubuntu Linux) was a doddle, the unit appears as a drive as normal, but is of course much faster to access then a mechanical drive.
Hosting my Steam game library on the drive, I found games did load and media streamed much more smoothly, however, multiple accessing (over say 15 connections) I soon found that connections to the drive were being bottle necked by my own system. The drive could handle them, but I was hampering my own high performance, requests were handled so quickly as to cause file accessing to almost trip over itself from the OS. This however is not the fault of the drive.
Which can only be praised in it's performance. And can only receive absolutely the top marks in this review.
My only quibble being, is it worth it's full price point... I'd have to say my sale price was the perfect price point for the unit, being charged more, despite the excellent performance, feels like I'm being profited from, rather than profiting in the added performance the unit gave me.
Addendum: I have removed the drive from my PC, formatted it to FAT32, and placed it into my PS3. It worked an absolute treat in there, the unit flies! However, it is smaller than the original mechanical hard drive (both in terms of size and storage space), size wise I fixed it in with blue-tac without any problems, storage wise I found large titles GTAIV and GTAV suddenly could not be installed together, I had to play one then the other.
Technically I believe the Samsung 250GB SSD is slightly faster with writes due to it's NAND configuration, the way it's attached to the internal bus inside the box. Just saying if you are chasing the numbers, there are slightly faster IO results you can achieve. However this one is great value and is fast enough. Spending more is not really necessary.
Wowsa! It's now fast and zippy! It's made an amazing difference, and I'd certainly recommend anyone else to consider this. Quick summary:
- makes the machine much faster
- easy to fit (on these old MacBooks anyway - not sure about more recent ones) with instructions online on multiple sites
- AND - if you haven't the original OS disk but you've been backing up on Time Machine you can install the OS from there
- relatively expensive (compared with traditional hard drives), and less GB - this did make me more selective in what to restore (my previous drive was 500gb) and I soon realised much of the software gunk I've been downloading for 6 years I don't actually need :)
- this SSD came without the exterior 'lugs' (?) so I needed to transfer from my old drive (this is easy to do and takes one minute)
Recommended - especially for older machines :)
The drive itself is tiny in size and works in desktop PCs and also laptops. I bought a mount so I could fit the drive into one of my drive bays but in the end I just stuck the SSD into a gap in my case where it wouldn't get in the way! The box itself contains just the SSD, and a small card telling you to download firmware etc. from the SanDisk website, and a dashboard app. I downloaded and installed this, and it checks the firmware for you, telling you if there is an update (there wasn't for me.)
I decided to rebuild my PC rather than attempting to copy my existing data onto the SSD, so I can't comment on any cloning software which may be available. My PC now boots to the Windows 10 lockscreen in about seven seconds, and applications load almost instantly since the upgrade. Absolutely delighted with the purchase, and as soon as I see them available for a similar price again I'll buy more, including one for my ageing laptop.
