SanDisk Z400s SSD Review

 

SanDisk has the exclusive on Silicon Motion's SM2246XT controller. What's more, we got our 128GB Z400s for just $.25/GB. But is this a true low-cost contender, or just a cheap SSD?

At $44.99, the Z400s is a very low-cost SSD. It's at least five times faster than a hard drive with random data and has consistent sequential performance under light workloads

The Z400s is also much smaller than a hard drive. Performance isn't everything, unless it's either a lot of performance or a lot of capacity

I really liked the Z400s 128GB at 25 cents per gigabyte. I don't know what happened to that price, but it appears to be gone now. At $44.99, the price is still low compared to many of the other products on the market. However, there are some drives...

Solid, inexpensive drive.

 

Comes with only the SSD, nothing else, so if you need a height adapter for installing into a device, such as some laptops and other applications, you will need to get that separately.

Low price. I only need this for a network gateway running pfSense, which uses FreeBSD and doesn't require much in the way of performance from a drive. This fits the bill. Has threaded metal fastener holes on sides and bottom.

None, really, other than for a drive at this price, expectations shouldn't be too high, although if purchasing as an upgrade from HDD, it should provide a noticeable improvement in performance, though another $10-15 might get yet a better drive.

Terrible SSD

 

Newegg was kind enough to allow me to return it after the packing had been disposed of.

It is an affordable product.

I have purchased several of these SSD's for my company and for personal use. They all have issues with freezing or disk utilization in the sense that they constantly peg out on Read/Write speeds. This could be alright if SanDisk had decent support or...

Nice Drive

 

I have used this SSD in 2 builds as requested by clients. This drive boots incredibly fast. No problems from this drive for almost a year now.

Very Fast

Looks Ugly Not the best price per GB

Very bad customer service. Move on to another brand.

 

I have been building computers since 1992. I have never seen an aggravating RMA Process from a drive manufacturer like this before.

Nothing at all

I bought 6 of those drives from Newegg late 2015. One of the computer stopped booting. The drive would cause machines to bluescreen when connected as secondary drive. I cant get an RMA number because SanDisk want a screen capture for the boot error...

Seemed ok at first

 

Perhaps I just got a bad part, but I had to load the OS three times (kept crashing) before the drive stopped and wouldn't work. It would not format even in DOS and I couldn't do anything with it in Disk Management.

Compact size More stable than standard drive

Had to reload OS three times before it quit. Bad sectors - can't format

Nothing wrong with it.

worked great till it died

 

While not as fast as some enthusiast grade SSDs, this drive is way faster than any HDD I have ever owned. After a string of bad luck with HDDs I decided to go with something different. Installation was a breeze. Fastest windows install I've ever...

Fast, small, no moving parts

did not come with a SATA cable or mounting screws, died after 4 months.

A great deal on a good drive.

 

If you're after a cheap SSD to give a little bit of a jolt to that old PC or laptop, you'd be hard pressed to do better. I currently use two of these as boot drives in my desktop PC, one for Windows 10 (NTFS, obviously) and the other for Debian 8 (ext4).

It's a reasonably fast SSD with a low cost per gigabyte. One of these drives injected new life into my old ThinkPad X200; once I decided to shelve that unit for good, it gave new life to my gaming PC with a SATA 3 controller card. The Z400s benchmarks...

It only benchmarks OK. CrystalDiskMark 5.0.2 (x64) reported sequential reads of 401.3 MB/s (far shy of the stated 546 MB/s maximum) and 184.2 MB/s on sequential writes (again, a far cry from the stated 342 MB/s maximum). I wonder if this isn't because...

Great drive for bringing new life to older machines

 

Installed this drive in about 25 older machines so far. No issues at all to report. I'm planning on using this drive in about 300 more machines in our environment and redeploy them.

Several times faster than none solid state drives Getting a total performance boost of about 40% on machines over the older spindle drives they are replacing Lower power usage so less heat, also more battery life in older laptops

write speeds are a little slower than some drives about 20 dollars more, but at this price point; this is much more bang for the buck.
