SanDisk Introduces New Affordable SSDs

Sandisk launched the SSD Ultra Plus late last year and now they’ve added to the series with the entry level SanDisk SSD Plus 2.5-inch drive. SSD drives do not only significantly improve the data rates compared to traditional hard disks, they also consume less power, are less prone to shock damage and create no noise. A perfect upgrade for any laptop.

The new Sandisk SSD Plus comes in two capacities, 120GB for $69.99 and 240GB for $109.99 MSRP. Both models have sequential reads up to 550MB/s while writing is limited to 350MB/s on the 240GB model and 180MB/s on the 120GB sized drive. The SanDisk SSD Plus comes with a 3-year warranty and will be available in Q1 2015.

Adding to the existing line of Ultra II, Sandisk is introducing the mSATA form factor to the series. The new mSATA SSD will be available in three capacities: 128GB ($73.99), 256GB ($115.99) and 512GB ($220.99). This line of drives can achieve up to 550MB/s sequential reads and 500MB/s writes. Random performance is rated up to 97K IOPS for the largest model. The SanDisk Ultra II mSATA SSD also includes a 3-year warranty and will be available in Q1 2015.
