SanDisk Extreme II SDSSDXP-240G-G25 2.5"" Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

100% Positive Reviews
Rated #50 in SSD


Pros: Small 7mm form factor, 5yr MFW, 95% of components built by SanDisk, FAST

Cons: Price? but of course I purchased them on their release date June 11th 2013

I've had these up and running for nearly 3 months now and have been very happy with their performance thus far. I read some promising reviews prior to my purchase and unlike the former Extreme and other SSD manufacturers, SanDisk built 95% of the components used in this Extreme II version. Plus they also extended their 3 year warranty to 5 years.
They also come in 120GB and 480GB capacities. The 240GB model being reviewed has a 224GB formatted (usable) capacity.I have 2 of them set in RAID 0 with a combined capacity of 447GB and 12% of that (55GB) is used by Windows 7 Pro. I don't wish to debate the practicality of using SSDs in RAID 0, this is OCN, we do lots of things unnecessarily wink.gif

I ran some CrystalDisk benchmarks on both a single drive and under RAID 0 just to get an idea of the performance usage over time. (see benchmarks below)

The small 7mm form factor Makes them an excellent upgrade choice for most of today's laptops and the packaging also includes a 2.5mm spacer for those utilizing a 9.5mm bay/caddy.
