      Great for BMCC

      By ramakrishnr

      from Johor, Malaysia

      Comments about SanDisk Extreme Solid State Drive (240GB):

      This SSD is perfect for 2.5K RAW recording on BMCC. Not observing dropped with this solid performer. Unfortunately, these first generation of Extreme SSDs are now obsolete and difficult to get from local computer shops here in Malaysia and Singapore. All they have now is the new Extreme 2 version. Albeit being faster than the first generation, it is reported to have dropped frames while recording 2.5K RAW. BMCC's Approved SSD list also contain the the first generation but not the Extereme 2. If you're seriously into RAW from BMCC, this is all you need as a reliable recording media. Special thanks to B&H for still selling the original version for BMCC users like me and delivering it diligently on time half the world away from New York to my home in Malaysia. Thank you very much B&H!

              Bought this to replace the stock 500GB 5400RPM drive in my 2012 macbook pro. Start up time is about 15 seconds! installation was easy! the firmware took a little to understand but on the second try got it going! definitely recommend this product to anyone wanting/needing a boost in performance.

                    This is the fourth SSD I have bought to upgrade two desktop and one laptop computers.

                    The price and performance of the SanDisk drive is by far the best of the SSDs that I have bought over the last two years. I use this in a desktop where I do all of my photography work. All apps work faster than ever and a real added bonus is the computer is much quieter.

                              Purchased 3 to use in Atomos Samurai recorders. I have a total of 10 of these Sandisk Extreme 240GB rotated through 5 Samurais on several continuous 4-5 hour events and they have been trouble free so far. Transfer times are speedy through USB3 on a MBP Retina, takes about 12 minutes to transfer 240GB onto a USB3 external HDD. Price is still a bit high compared to the much faster Samsung 840 Pro but chose the Sandisk because it was one of the verified and tested SSD to use on the Samurai.

                                      Very happy overall: easy to install and get up and running. Minor complaint: the data cable doesn't click and lock and detaches easily if bumped. This is my first SDD, so I'm not sure if this is an issue with all SDD or if I got a unit with a bad connection.

                                        I have bought two and installed one in an iMac and one in a MacBook Pro. They are super fast, reliable and quiet. I have had no problems.

                                            I bought this drive to hold a backup image of my production laptop road machine. I hope that I'll never need to reload that machine image in an emergency situation like a failed boot disk, but it's important that the image disk be ready to go when needed. The SanDisk SSD's are supposed to be reliable and highly shock resistant. So far, so good

                                              Have been replacing mechanical hard drives in all our home/business computers with SanDisk SSD's. The system response has been noticably improved - and they don't make any noise! No reliability issues.
