Solid state storage is the most important performance component found in a modern system today. Without it, you do not even have a performance system.
SanDisk's Extreme II takes all the latest technology and combines it together in one lightning fast package. The Extreme II is a Hyper-Class SSD that is quality built and comes with a class leading five year warranty and an extremely affordable price tag of only 75 cents per gigabyte. You can get a Samsung EVO for about the same price, but the EVO has a three year warranty, not a five year warranty.
The other Hyper-Class SSD's backed by a five year factory warranty (Samsung's 840 Pro and OCZ's Vector) either cost more (840 Pro) or, have an element of uncertainty when it comes to warranties (Vector).
If you are an enthusiast and are looking for a blazing fast solid state solution that's affordable and backed by an industry leading warranty, then take a close look at getting yourself a pair (or more) of Extreme II's. SanDisk's Extreme II is one of a very few SSD's that are fast enough to be classified "Hyper-Class," and that awesome performance gets magnified quite nicely when you run them in RAID 0.
RAIDing two or more drives together provides you with storage that takes performance to the next level and is something I recommend you try. Once you go RAID, there's no going back.
