Sandisk X210 256GB Business Class Solid State Drive Review


CrystalDiskMark is a small HDD benchmark utility for your hard drive that enables you to rapidly measure sequential and random read/write speeds.

Here are some key features of “CrystalDiskMark”:

  • Sequential reads/writes
  • Random 4KB/512KB reads/writes
  • Text copy
  • Change dialog design
  • internationalization (i18n)

Across the board, the X210 has high levels of performance and looking at the 4K sector we see a near 10x increase in performance when using a queue depth of 32.

Although the drive is tuned for IOPs performance, we do not that the X210 has some of the faster sequential write speeds that we have seen over the last year from any SSD.
