Oops, I installed it and noticed low performance then discovered I bought the wrong one.On a Tom's Hardware recommendation I was looking to buy a new drive, found on Amazon and bought the highest read/write speeds without noticing that even though the Extreme II has lower speeds the real world speeds are FASTER.
This drive uses an old Sandisk controller, not stable and it relies on compression of data for those "theoretical" speeds. Guess what, you can't compress MP3's, JPG's etc cause they are already compressed. Also, Sandforce controllers are written by Sandforce, not the hard drive manufacturer so the manufacturer has no control. The new extreme II have a Marvel controller (the best, most stable high end SSDs use Marvel) that Sandisk was forced to write their own firmware for and they did so plus added another level of cache over the top of everything. The new Extreme II mops the floor with this old version but you need the Extreme II 240GB version to get the 500MB/s++ fast write speeds.
Dump this from your cart & get the Extreme II, newer technology and faster in the real world, garbage collection baked into the firmware. [[ASIN:B00COF7E3K SanDisk Extreme II 240 GB SATA 6.0 Gbs 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive SDSSDXP-240G-G25]
The time consuming task is installing your OS and apps on the new drive. I used Carbon Copy Cloner to simply clone my internal drive and about an hour later I rebooted under the new drive. Of course, I also installed Trim Enabler for SSD maintenance and updated the drive firmware to R211. The SDD 480 shipped with firmware R201 and supposedly suffered a bug that disabled Trim operations. You'll need to go to the SanDisk website or google for the update. The updater must be installed on a CD/DVD and you reboot under Linux. Most Mac users haven't seen an old style Linux interface so it may be disconcerting to see line commands and not be able to use a mouse or trackpad. The update only takes a few minutes. However anybody installing a SSD is a DIY type so they'll enjoy the extra toil and adventure.
Everything works like it did before but faster. Startup and shutdown fly and saw the most pronounced speed improvements. The original hard drive (still in another bay) is a 3TB 7200RPM Barracuda and the 24GB of RAM means little disk access with demanding apps like PhotoShop, Protools and Premiere. So while app opening and waking from sleep are a level faster with the SSD, the gains are less pronounced than I had hoped. Processing RAW photos and large AIFF audio files are about the same as the old mechanical disk, probably because most processing is done in RAM. If I ever hit the scratch disk in PS the SSD 480 would really sing but even with multiple adjustment layers that doesn't seem to happen. Oddly, MS Word 2008--the slowest opening app I've ever owned--now opens in about one second.
So all in a good upgrade and value considering the 480GB was only 3 bills. However, if your Mac already has a fast mechanical drive and is loaded with RAM, the gains are clear but not as dramatic as upgrading a slow MacBook drive. I'll update this review if there are developments down the road.
As of today, July 15, 2013, Sandisk Extreme (not Extreme II) and Samsung 840 (not 840 Pro) are about the same price, and so it isn't a question of which is a better value. It's a question of which is better.
To begin with, I see no good reason to pay extra for Extreme II or 840 Pro. Those test faster, but I don't notice much difference, and I'd rather spend $600 on a slightly lower performing Crucial 960GB SSD (performs in line with regular Extreme or Samsung 840) than I would on an ~500GB slightly higher performing "Pro" (Extreme II or 840 Pro) model.
Now to get back to the topic at hand: Which is better, (regular) Extreme or (regular) 840?
For me, it is the Sandisk Extreme. I own both, and gross performance is similar. My benchmarks are in line with the exhaustive testing at Tweaktown dot com. Read their writeup of these drives (Sandisk Extreme 480GB and Samsung 840 500GB), and you'll see that Sandisk is offering a great price on a great SSD, while Samsung is giving you their budget technology (not bad but not as good as the Samsung Extreme) at the same price as the Sandisk Extreme.
What's good: Best quality SSD around at this price point
What's not: No migration cables/software or mounting kit included (had to save cost somewhere - better here than on SSD quality, in my opinion)
I'm about to buy another Sandisk 480GB disk right now.
