The Sandisk Ultra Plus has an above average consumer performance profile and is available at a fantastic price. It's one of the cheapest SSD's we have reviewed and we like it a lot. With a real world speed of 488.1 MB/s and an AS-SSD Total score of 910 points, the Ultra Plus is able to handle consumer workloads reasonably well and enterprise workloads just below average. The slightly below average server performance is primarily due to the Ultra's deep queue 4k write speed which clocked in at just 165 MB/s, considerably below the group average of 241 MB/s. Given that this drive is only a few months old, there is a good chance that its prices will drop even further which would make it an even better value consumer proposition than it already is. [Apr '13 SSDrivePro]

The 240GB Kingston HyperX Savage sports a Phison PS3110 controller. This marks a welcome departure from Kingston's use of Sandforce 2281 controllers and for the first time in years gives Kinston a shot at competing in the enthusiast/performance segment of the SSD market. Comparing the HyperX Savage and Fury shows that the new Phision controller has an effective speed that is around 40% faster than the Sandforce based Fury. But then comparing the similarly priced OCZ Vertex 460a and Savage shows that, although the overall effective speeds are similar, the Vertex has three times faster 4K Mixed IO speeds. The HyperX Savage is very good for typical consumer use but power users with more demanding I/O loads should probably look elsewhere. [Jun '15 SSDrivePro]
