SanDisk Extreme PRO SSD 960GB SDSSDXPS-960G-Q25 Review
SanDisk’s Extreme Pro is a top performance hard drive manufactured to satisfy the needs of games as well as power users. It has an attractive price tag that gives it quite the competitive edge when placed against most drives in the market. It also comes with a long warranty which goes to affirm its high quality and reliability. This warranty is ten years longs and stands as the longest warranty given for any Solid-state drive in the market.
As mentioned, this particular SSD offers top performance and if you have been planning on buying a drive but have also been waiting for the perfect one to be launched, well, you wait is over. This SanDisk Extreme Pro is exactly what you have been holding out for. If you have had a different SSD, then this SanDisk will no doubt be a worthy upgrade. The attractive price tag I mentioned ranges $190 to $600 depending on the storage capacity the SSD packs. The entry level model comes with a memory size of 240 GB and is available for around $190. The other models have 480 GB and 960 GB and retail at around $350 and $450 respectively. However, as is common with most devices, the street price has dropped considerably since the SanDisk Extreme Pro was launched.
Its design is similar to the look we have come to get used to from SanDisk. While a little monotonous, it is still a beautiful design. It has the standard 2.5 inches of thickness for the internal drive. When taken out of its box, I have an extra 2.5 mm to its thickness. This extra size in its thickness can be explained by the piece of spacer which SanDisk incorporated into the drive. As a result of this spacer, the drive makes a perfect smug fit when placed inside a drive bay that is designed for a standard 9.5 mm thick laptop hardrive. It is able to function with most applications and is compatible with the SATA 3 interface. This is not just good but it is also futuristic seeing that the majority of the computers being released into the market are design to support the SATA 3.
This SanDisk drive comes with the same Marvell 88SS9187 controller that the Extreme 2 before it had. What is more, it sports SanDisk’s second generation MLC NAND 64 GB flash memory for its storage. In addition to that, the Extreme Pro is now the first of the company’s lineup to feature the incredible nCache Pro tech. This technology optimizes read and write rates for the drive as well as drive endurance. It also helps give better protection to the drive with regard to the data stored in it. According to the company, this technology is what is responsible for the drive’s consistency in great performance, with when performing a set of tasks. Multitasking is done with the least energy consumption and low latency.
