Solid state drives have crossed over from the enthusiast and power user market and are going mainstream. The early performance issues and later stability issues have been overcome. Modern SSDs are reliable, with predictable life spans and that has opened the door for business use.

 

The SanDisk X210 isn't the first SSD specifically for business notebook use, but it's one of the first to merge enterprise SMART registers and an affordable price. SanDisk used the same controller that the company used on popular Extreme II consumer SSD. The SanDisk in-house firmware team traded a small amount of performance from the Extreme II in for more reliability. The result is a high performance, business focused SSD that's sold at a low price.

 

The X210 also serves an additional role, server operating systems. We're often asked about what product to use for server operating systems when the workload takes place on secondary storage. The X210 brings a high level of reliability and was designed for this purpose as well.

 

Let's dig in now and take a close look at the 512GB model.
