SanDisk Extreme II 240GB SSD Review

The SanDisk Extreme II hits a home run with its first time at bat. The average sequential read performance across the drive is a chart topping 475.8MB/s.

 

Someone wake up Samsung and OCZ, SanDisk just crashed the hyper-performance party!

The SanDisk Extreme II is a switch hitter; it can swing the bat writing sequential data across the drive, too. The 441MB/s write average in HD Tune Pro is also higher than Samsung's 840 Pro.
