Hit and miss!

Blue "tgis", Amazon
31 January 2014
  • Summary: As a former SanDisk employee I am quite disappointed with this drive. SanDisk should get into controller business beside memory chips! This thing is at this point as reliable as a paper weight due to controller failures.

Disk died after less than a year

Darnell A., Newegg
23 November 2013
  • Pros: Fast. Nice capacity for a SSD.
  • Cons: Died. OS is locking up. Running SpinRite on it, and finding unrecoverable sectors.

Get the extreme II

reluctant techie, Amazon
1 November 2013
  • Summary: Short story; Marvel is better than Sandforce. Oops, I installed it and noticed low performance then discovered I bought the wrong one.On a Tom's Hardware recommendation I was looking to buy a new drive, found on Amazon and bought the highest read/write speeds without noticing that even though the...

Doesn't Like Extreme 4?

Bridget M., Newegg
15 October 2013
  • Summary: Weird part: I put this drive in a cheap Asus AMD build and it works fine (though the board only supports SATA 2). That's why I gave 2 stars... Like another reviewer on here, this was an upgrade from a perfectly functional, smaller SSD. Ugh.
  • Pros: This drive is fast.
  • Cons: Wouldn't work in Intel SATA ports on my Asrock Extreme 4 Z77 Mobo. I kept getting BSOD with 0x000000F4 error. After lots of unsuccessful attempts to fix this, I finally installed the Asmedia SATA 3 drivers and the drive worked in there, but slower - Which is why people prefer to use the Intel slo...

Runs great until it doesn't...

Chris N., Newegg
9 September 2013
  • Pros: Fast, easy installation. Fast RMA.
  • Cons: This is the third Sandisk 120G SSD that has died. All of them have died about 8-10 months after install. Sandisk has been good with the RMA and fast shipping, but its a real pain to have to rebuild the system over and over. Would not buy it again.

Failing after 9 months

Ryan Jones, Amazon
18 June 2013
  • Summary: It was initially great, but just got slower and slower. I verified and repaired the Disk via Disk Utility, but eventually it got the point where this was required every week. That's the sign of a dying drive, so I no longer trust it and have to buy a new one.

7 months later, highly disappointed

Roni R., Newegg
8 June 2013
  • Summary: When I first bought the video, I honestly loved it. It was cheap, pretty fast, and just worked. And then a few months later, things fell apart. Sequential speeds started going down faster than BP's credibility after the gulf of mexico oil spill. And no, its not because of the fulness of the drive.
  • Pros: Good sequential speeds for a good price out of the box, provides ample storage for OS, apps and tons of family pictures, videos, music, etc.
  • Cons: Low IOPS, which is bad because, arguably, IOPS' are more import than sequential. Drives of similar price are available with much higher IOPS. See other thoughts.
