I think enough have already been said about the insanely fast Sandisk Extreme Pro and multiple benchmarks have proven it's superiority over most of the similairy priced SATA III SSD drives. So I won't bother with that. What I'd say is this: unless you are moving very large files on a regular basis between different SSDs; you may not notice much of a difference in comparison to a cheaper MX100. If you are moving from a mechanical disk or will be copying files to a "lesser" interface medium such as mechnical disks, USB, external drives, you may be better off with a cheaper model as you will be constrained by your write speed anyway. Benchmarks are synthetic and the actual advantages may not translate well in real life.
For me, moving from an older X25-M I have to say Windows boot up is not significantly faster; however transferring 30Gb+ files between SSDs is an absoloute God send. You'd have to do that on quite a regular basis to justify the cost and time savings. For my scenario, I felt that it's worth it. The 10 year warranty is an absoloute monster and is probably the best you'll get from any manfuacturer and is a testiment to their confidence in their QA. This is my 3rd SanDisk SSD purchase and I am yet to face any issues. Overall, a worthy purchase.

I spent a lot of time reading reviews.

I use a mid 2012 MacBook Pro, mostly for work, but carry a lot of data. My hard drive has to be encrypted. Anyway, I bought this and an inatek aluminium case - you need something to connect this SSD to your computer so you might as well buy something that will house your old drive. I bought this because it was well reviewed, from a company I trust, and with a ten year warranty.

I also considered getting a new Samsung Pro but didn't think I would notice the very slight increase in performance.

All I can say is that it has revolutionised my computer experience. Everything is instantaneous now. In particular, I need to use some Windows programmes and have Parallels and Windows 7 installed. That used to be a two or three minute wait, now it loads in about ten seconds.

Installation was simple. I used Carbon Copy Cloner. It is free and very straightforward, though I had about 680Mb and it took about 8 hours to clone. Still it happened first time and without a glitch. Don't forget to buy a set of Torx screwdrivers - the Lindy ones on Amazon are great. In fact, that's all you need if you buy an inatek case as that comes with a perfectly good screwdriver which will let you open up your Macbook.

This is the single most effective thing I have ever done to a computer. The speed is now fantastic. You will not regret doing this.

One of the fastest SATA 3 SSDs currently available. The sequential speeds are as high as the SATA 3 interface will allow, and the random read/write performance values are among the best in class.
If you upgrade from a spinning platter based disk (traditional HDD), the difference will be night and day- your whole system will be much more responsive. It's also silent, which is another plus.
Of course, this is backwards compatible with SATA 2, though the performance will suffer- particularly the sequential speeds. Even if you are limited by this, it's a great investment and will still be far faster than any HDD.

So far so good. The speed can't be complained about. Its several degrees faster than the 32gb OCZ Vertex it replaced. I'm happy with the price and 240gb is enough for anyone and for about the same price I paid for that OCZ Vertex in 2011. Nuff said!

When it comes to flash media SanDisk is the only brand I have ever shown any loyalty toward. The reason for that is simple: all their products are affordable, well made and do what they are advertised to do. The no quibble warranty is world renowned as well, and rightly so!

Shop smart. Shop S-mart.

I bought this to replace the HDD in my old IMAC early 2008. Best move I made the IMAC is super fast on both OSX and Windows 7. only take 15 seconds to boot up compared with 60 seconds previosly. Remember if you are replacing a 3.5 desktop drive you have to buy a bracket which only cost a tenner...At least I no longer have to buy a new computer as I will still have a few years use with my current computer.

While looking at this SSD from the outside, due to its dull exterior person may think that this drive isn't anything special.

However, this offering from SanDisk is as good as it gets at the time of writing this review; it is marked improvement over the older SATA2 SSD. This SSD is fast performer at SATA3 (6G) speeds. You get read/write speeds for multitasking, gaming, or reassigning large files. The case is made from robust aluminium, and should protect against shocks and vibrations. A nice and useful touch is that the SATA connectors also give a nice reassuring *CLICK* and lock into place with SATA cables that have metal clasps. As with most SSDs you will have the added benefits of quick boot-ups and shutdowns compared to a mechanical drive. Also an SSD will, by and large be cooler, quieter, and more energy-efficient than traditional hard drives. The Performance for this drive is excellent, however, in order to exploit its performance advantages you will need to utilize a motherboard with SATA3 (6G) connectors, something in the range of Intel's native SATA3 controller (Z68/Z77/X79/Z87). Another good thing going for this drive is that it introduces innovations such as low latency write buffer called nCache that uses some of the spare area of the drive to boost performance.

With this drive you get a good 10 year warranty - which should give some peace of mind, this then is SSD that would work well in refurbished old build PC, new build PC or NAS storage.
