First Look: SanDisk Extreme is a fine performer

2:41 /

The SanDisk Extreme is a standard 2.5-inch solid-state drive that offers very good performance and is one of the most affordable SSDs on the market.

Hello. This is (Don Wan?) (foster.com?) and today I have another associative drive to show you. This is the SanDisk Extreme. Now there's not much extreme about this solid state drive except it's made of aluminum casing. It's fresh steady and kinda nice. Now this drive support SHA3. So over here you can see it has a standard SAK port. It also work with SAK2 and SATA. Basically any SA2 application that a normal hard drive are used with. Now the big difference between solid state drive is going this one with hard drive is like that it would help improve the performance of computer a great deal. Especially boot thumb and look up. All right, all right. That's good question Kelly. Normally people take my which one but you know what, I'll show you. I happen to have a laptop here and it's not a slow laptop, the one with regular hard drive and it is in the sleep mode. So let's see how fast it works up. There you go. Not too bad but it's not too fast either. So if you log in, you can see that right now the Windows experience index is showing that the primary hard disc rating is at 5.9 and now let's see how it change, this change when I replace the hard drive with the SanDisk and by the way, before this it has already make a mirror image of this hard drive on this SanDisk. So the SanDisk has exactly the same data as the hard drive. And now let's see how fast it waits up. There you go. So now you're gonna see that the primary hard disc sub score is 7.7 which is very high for a short drive. Now this drive coming through capacity, 120 gig, 240 gig and 480 gig that cause $180, $318 and $799 respectively. Now that translate to about 1.3, 1.6 dollar per gig. A very good price compared to other SSD. Once again my name is (Don Wan?). This has been the first look at the SanDisk extreme solid state drive and by the way, let me know through my Twitter or Facebook if you want me to do a movie to SSD how to
