SanDisk Ultra Plus 256GB SSD Review

Rating: 8.0.

Today we are looking at the SanDisk Ultra Plus 256GB Solid State drive which features a Marvell SS889175 processor and SanDisk 19nm memory. Prices of this drive have dropped in recent weeks to around £130 inc vat. Is this an ideal large capacity drive to be shortlisting for a new system build?

Sandisk have targeted the SSD market hard in the last year and their Extreme drive was close to the top of the charts, featuring the SandForce SF-2281. Due to reliability issues last year with the 2281 controller many enthusiast users have been looking at other options, such as the Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller featured in the OCZ Vector SSD. How does the Marvell SS889175 cope with our extensive stress testing?
