What customers say about "Key Specs"
SanDisk SSD Plus
  • I needed more capacity for my PC and the solid state drive provides just what I needed.
  • The 250 GB capacity is perfect for a primary drive, plenty of room and small enough to cut down lag.
  • It's prices very well, as well as fast read/write speeds. Its great for replacing that old hard drive in a laptop.
  • Works awesome. Fast read and write speeds. Excellent replacement drive.
  • Quickly degraded. While read speed still good, write speed dropped below 30MB/s.
  • Write speeds are a little lower than some other drives in the same price range, but I felt like reliability would be good with the sandisk brand and was worth the slight decrease in write speed.
SanDisk Ultra II 1TB SATA III SSD (SDSSDHII-1T00-G25)
  • The speed improvement was instantly noticeable. Starting windows and loading all the on-boot apps was incredibly fast and at least 6x faster than with the spinning drive. Applications like Quicken respond instantly.
  • The speed and quietness of this drive compared to a typical HDD are almost eerie for ordinary tasks on a laptop like booting Windows, loading a large document into MS Word, etc.
  • doing a bunch of spreadsheet work, word processing, etc. -- the SSD Dashboard still shows the drive at 100% life -- so hopefully that's an excellent indication that I don't need to worry about running out of write cycles for several years, at least.
  • Great value SSD! Good enough to keep up with full DCI 4K 60FPS recordings in ProRes and DNxHR in my Atomos Ninja Inferno!
  • Easy to fit, I reinstalled Windows on this new drive. No problems, the PC is noticeably faster, and I have a bunch more space. Very happy with this!
  • The laptop still runs warm, so for me, can't comment on any difference between heat generated. I also can't comment on battery life differential as I'm generally plugged in.
  • The drive was great while it worked. It just disappeared from my 2010 iMac without any warning. The computer went to sleep mode and the drive failed during this time.

What customers say about "Features"
SanDisk SSD Plus
  • This configuration is considerably faster than using a flash drive and the form factor isn't ridiculous.
  • Gets full read/write speed when Sata 3 controller is present.
  • The SanDisk - 240GB Internal SATA Solid State Drive Plus delivers great performance for a good price.
  • Quite fast for a memory card. Have no complaints. Highly recommend.
  • It boots up fast and no complaints yet.
  • My one complaint is that it required the user to download third-party software to clone a disk. This caused a bit of confusion and was inconvenient.
SanDisk Ultra II 1TB SATA III SSD (SDSSDHII-1T00-G25)
  • This drive has been a great improvement over my spinning platter!! I love the fact that it is a full TB so I didn't have to shrink my existing 1TB drive. I could just clone it as it was. I would definitely recommend this drive to others. Had absolutely no issues with install.
  • Fast. Great storage. Bought the SSD mounting bracket to hold it. Absolutely no complaints.
  • Cheap and faster than budget ssd's. On par with top ssd's (excluding nvme) when copying large files.
  • Was an excellent purchase. With this the Macbook Pro is now faster and battery lasts longer!
  • A great drive at a great price! Transformed my iMac into a screaming fast mother that I can now run Mavericks and Sierra on it on 2 partitions. Just what my iMac needed!
  • While they honor the 3 year warranty the entire replacement procedure seems to turn into a 3+ week ordeal. Not acceptable in my opinion. They will not send out a replacement drive before receiving the defect unit, despite offering a credit card to guarantee the return of the old one.
  • Great 500GB drive. Sadly, it appears to be mislabeled as 1TB. Everything works fine until I hit the 500GB limit and then the drive refuses to write. Keep under 500GB, and it works fine.
