Excerpt: I use these HDD in my Atomos Shogun to record from my Sony PMW 320K. This camera records 35 Mb/s in 4: 2: 0 but outputs 10 bit 4: 2: 2 color. I get very beautiful video footage and the read/write speed is excellent. These are Solid state drives, so they make no noise and have no spinning motors.
Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Highly Compatible, Quiet, Reliable
Summary: I bought this to use in my LOTRO game rig - Yeah I'm still rocking the ring ;) Did I mention this thing is really light - The power cable can support it with ease System: ASUS M5A97 AM3+ AMD FX-8350 (New) Radeon HD6850 Kingston 12GB DDR3-1600MHz SanDisk Ultra II 240GB (New)
Cons: - No migration software (Not a true con as I was doing a fresh Win 7 install) - Extremely lightweight - Possible problem might arise with sturdy power supply cables as they may put undue stress on the dainty SSD power connector - This will be my 1st Con at my beloved New Egg - The items that came...
Summary: I have several ssd drives including the "old version" Sandisk Ultra Pro' yes ssd's boot and run way faster than mechanical drives. But i have run many bench mark test on all my ssd's when you buy a ssd the specs usual claim around 500-550 read and write speeds.
SSD speeds up aging netbook but cloneing process is tricky.

Summary: Installed in my aging Lenovo S10-2 Netbook computer upgraded to 2GB RAM. SSD works great. The disk access light just flickers occasionally instead of locking on solid while waiting for my system to come back. It was however a bit of a challenge to clone my system disk.
Summary: As usual SanDisk makes magic ram more magical than most magicians of magical ram. I cloned a windows 7 install from an original Lenovo Z575 - 5400 rpm drive to this drive and the little AMD A8 laptop became fast stealthy and dangerous.
Summary: The first thing you need to have in getting the ULTRA II to function is the Sandsik SSD Dashboard. This allows you to check the status of the drive and use the Windows Utilities to get the drive fully functional.
Summary: . First of all, have a good laugh at those of us who paid $200+ 18 months ago. Use camelcamelcamel (google it) to see if the current price is at low tide, or temporarily inflated. Love it. No problems so far. Excellent way to speed up your system.
