SanDisk Ultra Plus SSD 256GB

 

For that reason, it's easy to look past the drive's comparatively unimpressive performance. With the Plus in the name, one might expect the drive to be comparable to the Samsung 840 Pro or the Plextor M5 Pro . As it turns out, in performance the new...

The SanDisk Ultra Plus is great-looking and comparatively affordable. The drive offers decent performance.

The SanDisk Ultra Plus' overall performance could use some improvement compared with similar drives' numbers. The drive doesn't come with desktop accessories.

If you're moving up from a hard drive, the SanDisk Ultra Plus is totally worth its price.

SanDisk Ultra Plus SSD Review (256GB)

 

SanDisk is a household name as far as NAND storage is concerned. You can't walk into an electronics retailer and not be bombarded with SanDisk made CompactFlash and SD cards. Rip open a tablet and you might find a SanDisk solution. Even the new $249...

SanDisk Ultra Plus SSD Reviewed At 64, 128, And 256 GB

 

SanDisk's Ultra Plus replaces the company's older SATA 3Gb/s SandForce-based Ultra with something a bit more modern, and with a budget-oriented price tag. We test all three capacities to see if the entry-level pricing belies a pocket rocket in disguise.

SanDisk Ultra Plus 256GB SSD Review

 

The SanDisk Ultra Plus features SanDisk's proprietary eX2 ABL MLC NAND with nCache technology. This technique creates a SLC layer to help boost write performance and enhance endurance. The SSD also features a four channel Marvel 88SS9175 controller and...

The SanDisk Ultra Plus brings the four channel Marvel 9175 controller in tandem with 19nm eX2 ABL MLC NAND. This provides an endurance of 80TBW, more than enough for consumer workloads.

SanDisk Ultra Plus (256GB) Review and Ratings

 

Those looking for a reasonably speedy and affordable SSD should seriously consider SanDisk's latest mainstream drive. Content creators will especially appreciate its speed when writing large files.

Very fast when writing large files and reading small ones ; Good all-around performance for the price ; 7mm profile will fit in many thin laptops and ultrabooks

No bundled software ; Warranty is shorter than pricier drives ; Capacity tops out at 256GB

As mainstream drives go, SanDisk's Ultra Plus is a fine choice at its current price, offering good performance overall, with impressive speeds writing large files and reading small files. Content creators on a budget should especially give this drive...

SanDisk Ultra Plus 256GB Solid State Drive

 

If Xerox is to photocopying and Kleenex is to boxed tissue, then SanDisk has got to be associated with flash memory. Sure, there are many brands out there today, but if you remember what was going on in the technology world when Avril Lavigne was still...

SanDisk Ultra Plus SSD (256GB) - A Marvell Alternative

 

SanDisk has just introduced a new mainstream SSD using Marvell's new SS889175 controller. We put it through its paces to find how it fares and if it can justify its high price.

Fast sequential read and write performance ; Bumper to convert drive to 9.5mm form factor

Below average random access performance ; No HDD installation bracket or other accessories ; Extremely expensive; top performing drives retail for much less

The SanDisk Ultra Plus is a promising drive with decent mid to high-end performance characteristics. Unfortunately, at this point, it is let down by its rather ludicrous price tag. At that price-point, there’s simply too many faster, more accomplished...

SanDisk Ultra Plus 256GB review

 

A rare SSD release from flash giant SanDisk, but worth the wait

Good price per GB ; Solid but not stellar performance ; Impressive 4K random result

Write speed could be better

SanDisk Ultra Plus 256GB SSD review

 

A superb price and well-balanced performance make this a great buy

Lack of extras aside, the SanDisk is extremely impressive. It has great performance and is one of the best value drives we’ve seen. If you’re searching for high-end performance but also have an eye on value, this is the drive to buy.
