SanDisk Ultra Plus 256GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - Sequential Performance

SanDisk Ultra Plus 256GB SSD Review

SanDisk brings another consumer friendly SSD to the market. This four-channel controlled drive should hit a very low price point and the programming should keep it very quick.

HD Tune is a Hard Disk utility which has the following functions:

 

Benchmark: measures the performance

Info: shows detailed information

Health: checks the health status by using SMART

Error Scan: scans the surface for errors

Temperature display

 

HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write and access time results and for the last couple of years has gained popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.

Reading across the drive we found the SanDisk Ultra Plus to be a very good performer. I was pleasantly surprised to see the drive outpace everything else on the chart in this task.

The write performance is very good as well. SanDisk firmware engineers must have put in a lot of overtime to get the new four-channel Marvell controller working at these speeds. The Plextor M3 Pro uses the eight-channel version of this controller and as you can see here the LiteON engineers need to take a course at the SanDisk school of programming.
