I have not encountered a single issue so far in almost a month of use - this is running the latest R201 firmware for the SSD. I recommend this drive for Macbook users although there may be a compatibility issue with 2008 Mac users with nVidia chipsets - something that is common with Sandforce based drives. The drives firmware can be updated on a Mac by downloading the firmware and creating a bootable CD using Disk Utility.
It's a SATA III drive, and is also backwards compatible with SATA II. The bandwidth limit of SATA II is 3 Gb/s, and this drive reads at a theoretical maximum rate of 550 MB/s (about 4.4 Gb/s), so in theory you will be limiting the speed of this SSD by using a SATA II connection. In reality however, there won't be that much of a difference as the peak speed of an SSD drive is rarely ever reached in everyday use. Using a SATA III connection will give you a bandwidth limit of 6 Gb/s, which will theoretically allow you to max out your SSD's read/write speed.
Being a solid state drive, it is totally silent and has no moving parts, so shouldn't get hot or wear out with use.Read more ›
- Stable so far -- in 3 weeks of heavy use have not had a blue screen yet.
- Sandisk makes their own NAND for this drive, which on paper is a good thing for reliability because they can cherry-pick their own NAND and are familiar with it. This advantage is cited frequently for Intel and Samsung SSD's, which both make their respective NAND's.
Cons: - Sandforce controller. A con for some who have been burned by previous SSD's with Sandforce controllers, or who simply don't trust Sandforce. To me, it seems like the quality of a Sandforce controller has a lot to do with each SSD manufacturer's implementation and the firmware that is used. OCZ's tend to be notorious for issues related to the firmware. I'm comfortable enough that the firmware used in the drive is stable. However, those uncomfortable with Sandforce can look to the Samsung 830 (which uses Samsung's own controller) or the Crucial m4 (which uses a Marvell controller).
- No disk copy software or mounting bracket provided. But if you want to install this in a desktop that doesn't have a 2.5" bay, you either have to buy a 2.5" to 3.5" adapter or zip-tie it in.
Other Thoughts: For those contemplating ANY SSD, it will make a big change in your computing. On my i7-3770k with this SSD and 9 HDD's, Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit boots from BIOS startup to login screen in about 19 seconds flat.Read more ›
This SSD was initially my 2nd choice as I was originally after a Samsung 830 which was priced a little cheaper back then and priced so well that it was sold out almost instantly everywhere, I had spent a week with my order back-ordered with no solid ETA on new stock. So i gave up and decided to order one of these Sandisk SSDs after reading some great reviews.
the SSD has been out for roughly about 3 months according to quite a few reviews but hasnt gathered much publicity until the massive spate of price drops everywhere.
I bought this SSD to replace the hard drive in a rather weak HP DM1 (3200SA)laptop running a AMD E-350. Its a good laptop but its rather slow and can be quite sluggish when there are few windows open and applications running in the background.
Having already put a Crucial M4 in my desktop PC a few months back, I knew exactly what to expect when I installed this SSD into my laptop and it has transformed this little laptop into a rocketship!!!
==== HP DM1 USERS =====
I was cautious at first and worried if i would be able to run the SSD at its fully rated speed after hearing many reports that the Sata controller for AMD based DM1s were really weak, but i was pleasently suprised after running a quick ATTO benchmark.
I am getting the FULL speed out of this SSD.
Unlike most newer models of DM1 that came after the 3200 series, mine shipped with a 7200RPM Western Digital Scorpio Black.Read more ›
