SanDisk Ultra II 480GB SSD
Although this is our second review of the Ultra II Series, this is the first model we've seen with the retail box and accessories. The first 240GB Ultra II shipped in a drive only configuration, and wasn't on the market as a retail part when we tested it.
The retail kit includes a 7mm to 9.5mm adapter, paper warranty statement, and a reminder to download the SanDisk Dashboard software from SanDisk's website.
The drive is very light; half of the case is made of metal, and the other half is made of plastic. The controller, DRAM, and flash all face the metal side with thermal transfer material pads between the components and the case.
The back of the drive has the model number, serial number, and capacity label.
Ultra II has a 7mm z-height, so it will fit in newer Ultrabook designs that are too thin to use a full 9.5mm drive.
Inside, we found all of the components on just one side of the PCB.
This 480GB capacity Ultra II uses Marvell 88SS9189-BLD2 controllers.
The DRAM buffer is from Micron.
Although not much to look at, since it looks like other flash packages, this is SanDisk's new X3 TLC flash.
