SanDisk Extreme solid-state drive (240GB - SATA-600)

 

There isn't anything extreme about the SanDisk Extreme SSD. It is, rather, a standard 2.5-inch, 9.5mm-thick solid-state drive that supports SATA 3 (6Gbps). And this is a good thing since the drive can be used in any computer that currently uses a SATA...

The 2.5-inch SATA 3-based SanDisk Extreme solid-state drive offers great performance and is affordable.

The SanDisk Extreme SSD doesn't come with accessories to help it fit in a desktop computer's 3.5-inch hard-drive bay, though it can be used in one.

With very good performance and even better pricing, the SanDisk Extreme makes a great replacement drive for a standard laptop or desktop computer.

SanDisk Extreme Solid State Drive (240GB)

 

If you're in the market for a solid-state drive (SSD), whether it's your first switch from a traditional hard drive or you're stepping up from an SSD that's starting to show its age, deciding on the right drive can be overwhelming. Here in late 2012,...

Very fast sequential read speeds ; Reasonably speedy at reading and writing small files ; Decent cost per gigabyte, especially considering performance

Sequential write speeds aren’t the best ; 9mm thickness limits use in laptops ; No 3.5-inch adapter or other accessories in box

SanDisk’s Extreme is an excellent high-end solid-state drive for content creators, gamers, or those who just want a fast drive at a reasonable price. It isn’t the fastest on every test, but it offers fast overall performance from a company with loads...

SanDisk Extreme SSD 240 GB Review

 

SanDisk Extreme SSD uses SF-2281 controller and 24 nm flash memory made by SanDisk. We have never a seen a combination like that before, so it is particularly interesting to check it out and see if contemporary Toggle Mode NAND will be able to breathe...

SanDisk Extreme 240GB SATA 3 SSD Review – Equal 4k Read/Write IOPS Performance Observed

 

We started this report with a bit of a discussion regarding the unique position that SanDisk holds with respect to pricing and their ability to reduce the ‘line in the sand’ further.  If this drive can prove to be a ‘top performer’ and is priced right,...

SanDisk Extreme 240GB SSD review

 

The SanDisk Extreme is poky compared with the fleet-footed Samsung 840 Pro 256GB. But it's a whole lot cheaper and it still blows away the fastest mechanical drive.

Although it's only an average performer, the inexpensive SanDisk Extreme delivers tremendous bang for your SSD buck.

SanDisk Extreme 240GB SSD Review

 

SanDisk may not be a household name within the SSD market but as one of the primary flash memory suppliers, their products have been used in countless

Amazing Price to Performance Ratio ; Excellent Performance ; Low power requirements

Half the NAND ICs does seem to limit performance in some scenarios ; Left us craving even more ; No 2.5” to 3.5” adapter bracket included ; So cheap that there is zero reasons to not buy another SSD, even if you don’t need one

SanDisk’s Extreme series represents the entry of a serious competitor into the already crowded high end SSD market. For the most part,

Decent but not without problems

 

I bought this SSD because I wanted to load flight simulators much quicker. The difference is drastic: from 1-2 minutes for loading to around 20-30 seconds of loading. This somewhat offsets the problems I had with the drive, but recently the drive has...

Still running after two years ; Fast read speed: clocked at 510 mb/s ; Decent write speed: clocked at 300-400mb/s ; I get to the log on screen in less than ten seconds ; Startup apps are loaded very quickly

Random os crashes on start up that are fixed after restarting the computer any where from 1-3 times with Windows 8. Completely crashed when updating to Windows 8.1. Oddly, I haven't had any issues when running Windows 7: this is after I did a clean...
