It's the SSD Plus Not Ultra II

I purchased the SSD Plus of this drive in February for an exceptionally good price. (I think I know why it was priced so low; I think it was old inventory) Anyway, it died 7 months later; no warning; just dead; all data lost. The 3 year warranty does not cover postage to ship it back the Sandisk in Guelph Ontario, but Best Buy agreed out of goodwill to replace it as an even swap with this Ultra Plus version it sells now. Initially they wanted the price difference for this upgrade, since the SSD Plus was discontinued from their product list. I was a bit suspicious because the packaging did not say "Ultra" anywhere on it. So I asked Sandisk who confirmed with the model number (SDSSDA-480G-G2) that the new drive was indeed the SSD Plus. not the ULTRA 2 (like Best Buy in the US sells, model SDSSDHII-480G-G2 ) I concluded that the Ultra Plus that Best Buy in Canada sells is merely the SSD Plus drive under a different product description; perhaps to distinguish between the new and the old inventory. Nowhere on the drive or packaging does it use the word Ultra. So it is not. You can check out all the drive models on the Sandisk web site. Basically, there are three levels of drives: the :"Plus". "Ultra 2," and the "Extreme." There is no such thing as "Ultra Plus" that Best Buy posts in the online product description.

Very Pleased - Highly recommended

I also have a Kingston 240 gb SSD ( about 4yrs old). I wanted a larger drive so purchased the SanDisk based on price per gb. I am very pleased with the product. It was delivered right on schedule. The SanDisk web site was really helpful regarding the installation and it all went without a hitch. Basically, i cloned the 240gb, to the new larger SanDisk SSD, removed the old SSD, installed the new Sandisk and booted up. All done and working fine!

Great drive

Used this to replace a spinning disk drive in a laptop purchased on boxing day 2011. Once I figured out that I needed cloning software that allows for cloning to a smaller hard drive (seems to be rare among cloning softwares) and that I needed a USB to SATA cable, the actual physical replacement process was quite easy. Now my laptop is honestly like a brand new laptop. For the price, which was the Black Friday 2016 price, this was a fantastic purchase and has definitely extended the life of my old computer. It's gone from barely usable to speedy and quick. Positive impact to general performance, massive impact on speed of boot-up, speed of turning off, and loading time for documents and applications. Super happy!

Nice SSD dive

The SSD drive is pretty fast. It makes performance of a computer better specially running graphic intensive software like flight simulator. The only issue is the special small mounting screws are not included. They are special kind and hard to find. This makes installation inside a computer problematic. Preferably it is best to buy a drive as a kit which includes all the installation hardware.

Nice SSD drive

Great product and Sandisk was very helpful as I asked if the SSD would work and fit in my 2011 Lenovo. Sandisk stated yes but be a bit slower as the existing laptop was SATA ll
