Review: SanDisk Ultra® Plus Solid State Drive (128 GB)

Having already owned the SanDisk Extreme® Solid State Drive and been satisfied with the performance thus far, I decided to go for another SanDisk SSD to upgrade Annabelle’s laptop which is still running on the conventional 5400rpm hdd. This time round, it is the newly launched SanDisk Ultra® Plus SSD. As Annabelle is a light user, a 128GB SSD shall suffice her requirements.

The SanDisk Ultra® SSD is built using SanDisk’s own MLC nand and is based on Marvell’s SS889175 controller. It is compatible with SATA3 (6.0Gb/s) interfaces and is also backwards-compatible with SATA/SATA2 interfaces. Its built is at 7mm thick, and would fit into most ultrabook and laptop. For those who required a 9mm SSD, there is a 2mm spacer included too. The SSD is running at a low power consumption of 0.12w. Hopefully, this will increase Annabelle’s laptop operating hours while on battery. The SSD is backed by 3-year warranty limited warranty.

Review: SanDisk® Extreme Solid State Drive (240 GB)

I have been using the SanDisk® Extreme Solid State Drive (SSD) for quite some time and received quite a far bit of queries from others on the performance of this drive. Let’s us take a look at some benchmarks done on this drive SATA 6.0Gb/s versus a Western Digital Black 1TB 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s (WD10001FAES) . This test is not meant to showcase the difference in performance between 2 SATA 6.0Gb/s drives but to show you the significant improvement one can feel with using the SanDisk® SSD. Both drives are connected to the SATA 6.0Gb/s ports of my motherboard, Gigabyte H77M-D3H.
