Experience: 2 Months


Quiet, reliable
Expensive compare to some other SSD
This drive is quiet and reliable. MTBF is better than most of the others.

Speaking of speed, it is extremely faster than normal HD, but not a big big different from my other 7200rpm drive. I would expect more from an SSD, but may be I am wrong.

But after all, it is a good buy. It will be even better if the price is cheaper.

Experience: 4 Months


Very fast as specs promise.
No mounting bracket included... a bit cheesy.
Using it for OS drive on new Z77 build
Windows 7 boot time = 13 seconds.
Enough said!

Experience: 4 Months


Great boot times
Low capacity?
I got this SSD on sale for $90, and for the price it's unbeatable. I've updated to the latest driver from SanDisk's website, and I've had 0 problems. My motherboard is only SATA 2, but it still boots in less than 20 seconds. This is possibly one of my best tech buys ever. I would highly recommend this SSD to anyone who wants something faster and more reliable than a hard drive. I still use my 320GB HDD as a storage drive, and they work great together. I may throw another in when I build a new system, that would be uber.

Experience: 4 Days


Appears to work as a storage drive in XP Pro 32bit okay using ICH7-R controller but that's not what I bought them for.
Does NOT work as an OS drive with nVidia nForce590 based boards.
Only works at SATA1 speeds on a SATA2 nVidia nForce590 based boards.
Sandisk's new R211 firmware seems to have serious issues.
Works with Intel's SATA2 ICH7-R controller on an Intel MoBo at 255MB/s write and 247MB/s read but never installed as an OS drive. The above seems great and this BUT that's not what I bought three of these drives for so here's the bad.

I am trying to use these Extreme 120GB SSD SATA3 drives on nVidia nForce 590 SLI MoBo’s as OS drives running Win XP Pro 32bit. For starters these drives do not negotiate to the SATA2 speeds that the MoBo controller is capable of and this is just testing them as a storage drives. They get stuck running at SATA1 and this is confirmed by ATTO results. SanDisk’s SSD ToolKit actually shows them as SATA 2 generation.

If you attempt to install software after you have installed Win XP Pro SP3 on them or even run an ATTO test you will find the system locks up and does nothing. All three drives did this and yes I did format these drives first using Win7 to get the correct partition alignment. Again, they work as storage drives on the nVidia nForce 590 SLI MoBo’s and return ATTO tests results without crashing ATTO or the system however you only get SATA1 speeds. I have SATA3 HDD on these system and they work fine at SATA2 speeds as both OS and storage drives.

So if you are attempting to speed up an older system running XP then I'd stay clear of these SanDisk Extreme 120GB SSDs unless you have a bunch of time to waste, a bag of chicken bones and several sacrificial goats. Maybe it will work under the right alignment of the planets and stars but I don't have time to wait for that to happen. I've wasted three days of my life just trying to get them to work and I give up.

Also to note SanDisk’s tech support is useless, contradictory, combative and when the tech rep realises that they made a mistake with the information they gave you then they just put you on hold and either the line goes dead or they never come back. Asking for a level 3 tech will also get you hung up on. SanDisk’s call centre being based in India makes it even worse because half of the time you can’t understand what the heck they are saying which is made worse by the lousy call quality over their IP based system.

SSDs still have a long way to go before they are simply just plug and play. For now the "plug and pray" saying is all too true for SSDs.

Experience: 7 Months


Wow, fast, random access.
This thing is fast
I did a copy comparison to my 5400rpm disk, what windows estimated 2 hour copy/paste from same drive job was done in 30 seconds on this drive.
I did tons of research, and this drive is the best for the money. They use their own memory chips, and Sandisk's extreme storage line always had the best speed and reliability. Is not the fastest drive out there, but is the best of the best bang for the buck, and it ranks near the top in speed.
I deducted 1 star because nothing is perfect. :P

Experience: 5 Months


toggle nand
didn't come with bracket
I got this when it was on extreme deal of day, good price at the time

Don't forget to turn on AHCI, I see a noticeable difference without benchmarking.

Experience: 3 Months


SATA3 performance
SSD Toolbox
None yet
I bought this to replace a Indilinx based Corsair SSD that completely died. Previous one had constant data corruption that required regular secure erase and rebuilds until it finally died in 2 years. Only had this one for a month, but it comes with a SSD Toolbox which the Corsair SSD didn't have, so it may optimize my O/S for SSD usage better than manually changing the settings. Hopefully, the Sandforce controllers are more reliable than the Indilinx; time will tell.

Comment: You have the confidence of knowing that SanDisk are one of the biggest hitters in the memory marketplace, as well as a good looking, high performing drive. It's a fantastic drive only let down by the slightly lower performance with small data block sizes, and the missing adaptor. Unfortunately w
