Enjoy Accelerated PC Performance
Upgrade your laptop and enjoy fast, reliable performance with the SanDisk Ultra Plus Solid State Drive. Great for home and business users, and featuring a storage capacity of 256 GB (1), this SSD delivers sequential read speeds of up to 530 megabytes per second (MB/s) and sequential write speeds of up to 445 MB/s (2). This means you can multitask, run graphics-intensive applications, and transfer large files with ease, as well boot up and shut down your machine without having to wait.
Designed to Keep Your Data Safe
Housed in a durable aluminum case, the SanDisk Ultra Plus has been engineered to resist shocks and vibrations, preserve the integrity of your data, and prevent data loss. The SanDisk Ultra Plus also supports thermal throttling, which protects critical drive components against extremely high temperatures. SanDisk's online SSD Toolkit allows you to check the health and performance of the SSD and upgrade firmware.
Quiet, Stable Operation and Low Power Consumption
Unlike traditional hard disk drives in computers, solid disk drives contain no moving parts, making them cooler and quieter and less likely to break. SSDs are also more energy-efficient than standard HDDs for longer laptop battery life. According to a SanDisk research paper, an SSD can extend the life of a laptop by up to 33 percent (3).
Sustained High Performance for Business and Home Users
Rather than focus on peak speeds, which may be achieved only for a few seconds at a time, SanDisk maximizes real operating speeds and performance consistency over a long period of time. Thanks to a Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) of 2 million hours (4), the SanDisk Ultra Plus can deliver years of fast, reliable performance, whether you're working with graphics-intensive applications or transferring big files at work.
Faster Write Speeds and Safer Data with nCache Technology
To optimize the user experience, the SanDisk Ultra Plus contains nCache--a large, non-volatile write cache that consolidates small writes to boost random write performance and the long-term data endurance of the drive. This proprietary technology from SanDisk is designed to mediate how modern-day operating systems and flash memory interoperate. The result is faster response times and better multitasking without stuttering.
Reliable Performance with an Extended MTBF
Like other SanDisk solid state drives, the SanDisk Ultra Plus offers a Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) of 2 million hours based on a parts stress analysis (4). MTBF is the predicted amount of time the drive will operate without failure and is a measure of reliability.
Monitor the Health of Your SSD in Real Time
Thanks to S. M.A. R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology) capabilities, this solid state drive can detect and report on various indicators of reliability and alert you of an impending drive failure while there is still time to take action.
The Advantage of SSDs
Why replace your computer's hard disk drive with a solid state drive? SSDs offer a number of advantages over traditional hard drives. Because they contain no moving parts, SanDisk SSDs are less likely to break, and they deliver cooler and quieter operation and consume less power than standard 7,200 RPM hard drives. In addition, SanDisk SSDs are cased in aluminum and are rigorously tested to resist shocks and vibrations. This, along with fast read and write speeds for games and more, makes an SSD a compelling option, and it's easy to remove an HDD and install an SSD without losing any data.
