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 128GB Sandisk Ultra Plus proved to be a bit of a disappointment in comparison to its larger 256GB sibling. The 256GB version has more NAND modules which enable peak sequential write speeds in the region of 450 MB/s. On the 128GB version we saw a peak sequential write speed of just 279 MB/s which is significantly lower than the market leaders which also manage to hit the high 400's. Across the core performance metrics, the 128GB Ultra Plus is around 25% slower than the average of its top competitors and, unlike its 256GB sibling, really struggles to keep up with its direct competition. In terms of value for money the Ultra Plus fares a little better thanks to its reasonably low price tag but there are far better deals to be had in the 128GB category. [Feb '14 SSDrivePro]
