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]

The Kingston HyperX is nearly two years old which in SSD terms is almost an entire lifetime. Starting on a positive note this drive will outperform any mechanical drive hands down, and still has one of the highest sequential read speeds (517 MB/s) we have ever seen on a SATA SSD. That said a balanced performance profile is critical and the HyperX doesn't fare so well against its younger SSD competitors in the other write orientated benchmark categories. The poor results are explained by the Kingston's Sandforce controller which struggles to deliver incompressible data throughput. With a real world speed of 398.1 MB/s and an AS-SSD score of 728 (bottom 28th percentile) there are far better deals to be had at this time. [Apr '13 SSDrivePro]
