The Sandisk Extreme II uses the 88SS9187-BLD2 controller, Marvel's latest, and Sandisk's own 19MM MLC Memory. On paper this makes an extremely good combination and the benchmarks agree. The Extreme II scored an impressive 1143 in the server orientated AS SSD Benchmark putting it amongst the more capable server drives. In terms of real world consumer performance the Extreme II also fared well achieving a real world speed index score of 570.5 MB/s, amongst the top three scores we have seen to date. The Extreme II has everything going for it apart from its price which is currently significantly above average and hurting its value rating. Because the Extreme is the newest SSD we have in our group test we expect prices will drop with time. Until then, however, there is better value to be had elsewhere. [Jun '13 SSDrivePro]

The Sandisk Ultra II sits above Sandisk's Ultra Plus and below their Extreme Pro. The Ultra Plus would probably have been phased out completely were it not for its continued success within budget space. The Ultra II is the first Sandisk drive to utilize cheaper (and slower) TLC NAND. Similarly to the Extreme Pro, the Ultra II utilizes an nCache which operates a portion of the NAND in simulated SLC mode. This strategy also matches the one employed by Samsung's now 14 months old Evo. Comparing the Ultra II and Evo shows broad performance equivalence which given the Ultra II's 15% price discount makes it the better choice today. That said it's probably worth waiting for the release of the 850 Evo which will pack another 14 months of Samsung's market leading R&D and will probably steal the show. [Sep '14 SSDrivePro]
