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 Sandisk Extreme was once a good choice of SSD thanks to its extremely (pun intended) competitive price. In terms of performance the Extreme would of course obliterate any regular hard drive but at 16 months old the Extreme can no longer compete with more recent SSDs. In terms of typical consumer workloads the Sandisk delivers below average performance and is even less capable when it comes to server workloads scoring a total of just 761 on the AS-SSD benchmark. The weaknesses in performance are a consequence of the now dated Sandforce SF2281VB1 controller which delivers sub-optimal compressible transfer rates. The best thing the Sandisk Extreme has going for it is that its successor, the Extreme II, was just recently released. [Jun '13 SSDrivePro]
