Customer Reviews of SanDisk Ultra 240GB 2.5" SATA II Solid State Drive (SSD)
Worst Decision This Year ....6/3/2012
I"ve had a solid state harddrive in my Dell XPS for 4 years, the speed is awesome, and it was well worth the investment 4 years ago, however I needed a bigger drove and chose this "DEAL" and it was the worst choice ever. First off, this Drive is Revision 1.0, and everyone knows the first revision is rarely a good choice. I installed the drive, used for 11 days, and when the computer went to sleep on the 11th day, it was the very last time it every worked, wouldn't power up, couldn't be recovered due to the encryption/failure to even power in slave bay... and the manufacturer didn't offer any help other than to exchange it for a new one. Like I would ever want to lose 11 days of software development again due to a poor hardware design. STAY AWAY FROM THIS DEVICE if you care at all about your work. Or run backups every hour to a different device, or prepare to lose it all.
paid for and works5/19/2012
Fast and cheap! I am in the process of replacing all boot drives onf my pc/laptops/macs with SSD's I know its quite expensive but I am taking my time and buying one by one. Cant believe a 4yr old macbook booting up in less than 20 secs and opening adobe CS in about 30 seconds. Update on Jan 5. This will be my third purchase of the same 120gb. Now its on two laptops and a desktop. I am debating if I going to put my third one in my mac mini 2011 or another laptop I have. :D
Excellent SSD. I have had 2 for 2 weeks and have had no issues. Super fast and reasonably priced. One word of caution, it does not come with any cables or mounting supplies if you are planning on installing this in a desktop.
You can't rate this 1 star because you don't know5/9/2012
SSD's don't allow SLEEP or HIBERNATE on any computer Win7 Or Mac OS. Read up about the product before you install it and actually learn how to optimize and set up the drive. New tech always comes with a learning curve; but its really pretty simple, you just use google. This drive performs just fine for the price it is a decent deal; but Sata III is about 2 X as fast; unless you only have a Sata II Motherboard I wouldn't really get this.
BSOD out of the box3/15/2012
No problems getting the drive installed and operating. Unfortunately there seems to be a problem with WIn7 and sleep mode using this drive.
