Summary: I had bad luck with this drive. It was purchased April 2014 and was working great until yesterday, when it became incredibly slow to the point that I could not shut down my computer. It stopped showing up in the BIOS at that point, and I can't even extract data from it.
Pros: A great drive for the money. I bought a pair to used in multi-track recording PC running Windows 7. One as the OS / Software drive and the other one is purely for recording the tracks to. The system boots scary fast! I can barely get my finger off the power button and the system is already at a l...
Cons: none at all except maybe capacity for some people.
All the Extra money and months of research oddly not so impressed

Summary: I figured with the fluxuation I always missed on the consumer version extreme II (522 AM and i'm not just getting up), that why not get the x210 for the same price as it has some protective business class features and appeared to be better overall performance for around $180 Being in IT and knowing...
Summary: Replaced a 5400 RPM 1TB drive that shipped with my HP Envy 15z with this and the performance is amazing for the price. I had an older Samsung 830 128GB drive I was going to use but I'm glad I went with this instead.
Pros: Fast. Fast. Nicely priced. Fast.
Cons: Not self encrypting like the new X300s, but I didn't want to wait around for them.
Summary: Using the sandisk X210 with MSI 990 FX motherboard everything seems a whole lot faster than Sandisk Extreme SSD. When you install into personal computer X210 can be seen in device manager does not boot, you need to go to my computer right click open disk manager give SSD a drive letter & reformat...
Pros: Advanced SSD technology using DDR3 catch. Better than the previous Sandisk Extreme SSD, faster write times, made for business computers also works well with personal computers.
Pros: Great Drive...I've owned a Samsung 840 Pro and in real world tests this drive is a great alternative. I will be ordering 20 more like it when our budget renews later in March. They have made a MASSIVE difference to some old in tooth 2008 Mac Mini's. They went from almost 4.5 min just to start up ...
Works fine but my installation process wasn't smooth

Summary: I give 5 stars because the issue I encountered may have nothing to do with the disk. Here is what happened. I needed to clone my still-working iMAC 2009 internal HDD as I wanted to replace it with an SSD. I connected the X210 SSD via an external USB disk docking station.
