Dear Amazon,

This review was written for Sandisk Extreme, not Sandisk Extreme II. It has nothing to say about the newer model. Your editors have erred in conflating the reviews for these two different products.

Readers please note that Sandisk has, after many months, corrected the problems cited in this review, so those complaints are now irrelevant. However, my comments on the corporation's lack of integrity and honesty still stand.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is probably the fastest and most reliable SSD in its price class...except for it failing to deliver its rated speed due to defective firmware.

The problem occurs with MacBooks and desktop models that use the NVidia SATA controller. (You can see the controller under System Profiler->Serial-ATA.) The Sandisk Extreme will connect at a negotiated link speed half that of the controller. That means for a SATA 2 (3 Gbps) controller, transfer speeds will be limited to about 120 MB/s, a quarter of the SSD's rated speed. SATA 3 (6 Gbps) will be limited to about 250 MB/s in practice.

This problem of reduced link speed has appeared extensively with various combinations of SSD brands and Mac models. Both OWC and OCZ have already issued firmware updates that correct the problem, giving their customers the full speed capacity of their SSDs. As of the writing, Sandisk has not corrected the problem, nor committed to doing so.

If you are thinking of installing any SSD in a Mac, I suggest you first search for "negotiated link speed" <your mac model> <ssd model> to find out whether your particular combination will suffer this defect.

My system basics:
Windows 7, 64bit
Dell Vostro 3550 about 6 months old.
Intel Core I5 (quad) 2.3ghz with turbo.
8GB dram
Sata 3 drive controller
Crucial M4 128GB SSD, Read 500MB/sec, write speed 200MB/sec (was originally WD 7200rpm 320GB)
My qualifications: Electronic Engineer/Project manager. PC owner for 25+ years.

Opening comments: I have owned pc's for 25years. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY THE BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK UPGRADE YOU COULD EVER HOPE TO BUY!!!! IT IS EVEN BETTER THAN REPLACING A 2YR OLD COMPUTER OR LAPTOP AND OF COURSE CHEAPER!! Other benefits: windows is more stable. If you have a lot of programs open at the same time, the computer remains stable all day. Now, I rarely need to reboot.

I bought a Crucial M4 SSD (solid state drive) about a 2 month's ago and was amazed at the speed. Can't go back to mechanical hard-drives. I bought this one because it was spec'd faster than the M4 and I needed a back-up drive. This technology does not have a reliability track record for long term use as a computer drive. Once a week, I create clone drive copy as a back up. If the drive fails this clone can be popped in my laptop and I'm ready to go in 10 minutes. No restore needed except the few files I have added or changed.

Summary 1st: Both drives are excellent choices. (Sandisk Extreme and Crucial M4)
On my laptop, in every day use Sandisk extreme is slightly faster.

See posted photo's for actual data.
a)According to "ASS SD" benchmark test. Crucial is much faster than this drive (Sandisk Extreme.)
b)According to "Benchmark" speed test: Sandisk Extreme is faster. SanDisk write speed blows away the Crucial M4.

Note: Electrical specs like statistics can be presented in a way that is deceptive.

I'll start by saying I'm not a techie, but I do my research and I understand computers fairly well, so understand that this review is coming from the perspective of an educated layman with just his personal experience (and what he's read elsewhere) to go off.

And, before I start, let me give you my hardware specs first, just so you know: HP HDX18T laptop, Intel Core 2 Duo T9550 @ 2.66 GHz, 1080p HD res, 4gb ram (2 x 2DIMM), nvidia 130M card (does the job, but it's my weakest link now, for sure!). Used to be a top-of-the-line system, but it's about 3.5 yrs old now, and I haven't really babied it at all, so the parts definitely have normal wear and tear.

Now, onto the review --

Performance: This SSD simply FLIES. My "disk data transfer" Windows Experience Score was 5.5 out of 7.9 before the upgrade (with a WD2500BEKT 250 gb hdd @ 7200 rpm). After installing the Sandisk Extreme 120 gb SSD, my score shot up to 7.7 out of 7.9!! That is a ridiculous improvement, and the real-life difference, it turns out, is EXTREMEly noticeable (see what I did there?). I didn't precisely time the boot, shutdown, and application launch times before the upgrade, but with this drive, the boot and shutdown times are about halved, and the application launch time is basically instantaneous. Also, my computer is super quiet now very low fan speed, and almost no heat is being generated.

Price: I scooped this up for a mere $129.99 on one of amazon's one-day price drops (for the past few weeks, it's varied between $139-$149, so this was a nice deal). In fact, if you compare the cost of this SSD ($/Gb) to others, you'll see this drive is far and away the best deal out there.
