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
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
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)
ASUS Maximus V Formula
16GB 1866MHz Vengeance
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.
