SanDisk Extreme SSD 240 GB SATA 6.0 Gb-s 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive SDSSDX-240G-G25


First: There isn't a whole lot about desktop PC hardware that I don't know. Putting computers together has been a serious hobby of mine for a long time. I was a little concerned about buying this drive because its controller (SandForce 2) has had a few problems with other drives. This particular model came along a bit later when the controller had time to work out some bugs, and it seems to have paid off. The Amazon and NewEgg reviews are overwhelmingly positive. Performance-wise, price-wise, and apparently reliability-wise, this 240GB Sandisk Extreme is an elite solid state drive. If buying again today, I would choose between either this or the Samsung 830, whichever is cheaper. Typically that seems to be this one but you can't go wrong. Avoid any drives made by OCZ. The Crucial M4 is another reliable drive, but not the performer that this is. Intels are very nice but the prices aren't that competitive. Anyway I've owned mine for about 2 weeks now, loaded up with the Windows 8 consumer preview, and it works like a champ. The new Windows 8 interface is a little different, but that's another review. I love this drive so far, and there's even a noticeable difference between it and prior gen SSDs in boot times and more intensive applications. If the price is decent at the time you read this, pick one up. For those of you who have never owned a SSD, you're in for a treat. Note: The effective (usable) storage space is 223GB, not 240GB. It's typical of drives for reasons I won't get into, just passing it to the uninitiated so you don't think something is broken. Also be aware that this doesn't come with any kind of "upgrade kit" to migrate data from your old drive, though I always recommend a fresh install wherever possible. If you can connect the old and new drives at the same time, you can use cloning software as others in these reviews have detailed.
