So following the latest article about the new SanDisk SSD I was disappointed. I used their Ultra II's and they were excellent. This new breed seems to cost more and offer less performance. So what other current drives could be comparable to the Ultra II's? (Crucial, Mushkin???)
Kind of funny where I live WD/Sandisc is trying to charge more for their 3D than Samsung 850EVO.(good luck with that)
In the mid-range Samsung 850EVO is the yardstick others try to match.So that's a good starting point.
Crucial's new BX300 seems a good option,depending on price.(avoid the BX200 that was a bit of a lemon)
Intel's new 545S might also be worth a look as well.
With everyone now moving to 3D the "race to the bottom" might be coming to a end,just avoid planar TLC and any ram-less drives.
The two exceptions to that are Sandisk ultra 2 and Samsung 750EVO.
