Store and access up to 960GB of your data, be it movies, photos, music, documents, or other files, with the 960GB Ultra II SATA III 2.5" Internal SSD from SanDisk. It is equipped with a SATA III 6 Gb/s interface that fits into your system's 2.5" / 7mm drive bay, and provides load and access times for files and programs that are faster than those of a traditional spinning hard drive. In terms of speed, this drive offers sequential write speeds of up to 500 MB/s, sequential read speeds of up to 550 MB/s, random writes of up to 83,000 IOPS, and random reads of up to 99,000 IOPS. In addition to its enhanced data transfer rates, this drive also offers a life expectancy of 1.75 million hours MTBF, nCache 2.0 technology, NCQ support, TRIM support, DevSleep, dynamic and static wear leveling, thermal throttling, and S.M.A.R.T. support.

With solid state drive technology, you benefit from load and access times for your files and programs that are faster than a conventional 7200 rpm hard drive. As SSDs have no moving parts, they are also more durable than traditional hard drives and are better protected against damage from drops and bumps. Having no moving parts also means that SSDs receive less wear and tear, as there are no read or write heads for the drive media to come into contact with. SSDs also help to deliver improved battery life and cooler operating temperatures.

General Features

Accelerate Your System with Read Speeds up to 550 MB/s
Get sequential read speeds up to 550 MB/s for improved startup and overall performance. Load and run applications, games, videos, and photos more quickly so you can spend more time doing and less time waiting.
Enhanced Speed Technology
nCache 2.0 technology helps optimize performance by writing everything into the drive's high-speed buffer before transferring it to the flash array. This architecture helps enables faster burst speed, and allows the drive to achieve sequential write speeds of up to 500 MB/s.
Durable Solid State Design
With no moving parts, the SanDisk Ultra II SSD is engineered to resist shock and vibration, helping to keep your data safe even if you drop your computer.
SanDisk SSD Dashboard
The SanDisk SSD Dashboard gives you real-time visibility into how your drive is performing. It includes cloning software to help you set up your new drive, tools for disk analysis, and alerts for firmware updates.
A More Efficient Drive
SanDisk SSDs are cool, quiet, and efficient, so your laptop battery lasts longer on a single charge.
NCQ Support
NCQ support manages the queue length for better multitasking and workload management.
TRIM Support
TRIM support and Background Garbage Collection free up unallocated blocks that once held data to help lower latency and boost performance.
DevSleep helps to further reduce power consumption.
Dynamic & Static Wear Leveling
Dynamic and static wear leveling help make the drive last longer.
Thermal Throttling
Thermal throttling helps protect critical drive components against extreme high temperatures to enable data integrity
S.M.A.R.T. support monitors the health of your SSD in real time to help prevent data loss.

    960GB Ultra II SATA III 2.5" Internal SSD is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 66.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Device This is an absolutely great addition to my workstation. I have a lot of programs, so for a long time I was limited to a traditional HDD. Then this drive went on sale for $ and a went for it.I couldn't be happier with the results. There were some complications with the installation which you can see here (, but when I finally got everything working I was amazed. My computer booted up about 50% faster, and logging in was nearly instantaneous. In addition, I was able to start using my computer the second I logged in rather than having to wait for additional programs to load.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, energy sipping, and a real life-saver! When the hard drive on my MacBook Pro started to fail this month at the same time I realized that my back up system in Time Machine wasn't really reliable, I got really worried. I went to Apple, where they told me I probably needed to pay $1000 to get the data restored in a dust free room, etc., and where they also said that they could only sell me the same disk drive that was standard with the machine. But I decided to be a risk taker and so ordered this 1 TB solid state drive from B&H. B&H shipped it super fast and I was able to hook it up externally first to duplicate the failing drive (and actually capture all the data I had heard was lost), then install it easily into my Pro. Now, a week later, I feel like my old MacBook Pro has a new life. It's faster, it uses less power, and I bet I can keep it going another couple years at least. Thank you San Disk and B&H Photo!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from fast and reliable using this with an Atomos Shogun to record 4k from a Sony A7S. Works flawlessly so far.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid SSD - Great Value I cannot speak to the reliability of the drive as I have only had it in my machine for about 2 weeks, but it arrived quickly and continues to work perfectly so far. Capacity is great (usable space about 900gb) Speed is good. This feels a bit slower than some of my other SSD's, but still much much faster than any mechanical HDD. I would not hesitate to purchase again if I needed another large capacity SSD.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast hard drive with a lot of space I used this drive to replace an older 250GB drive I had used for a scratch disk. I was able to image my old drive within just a few minutes which was great and I'm no longer forced to move files around to save space on my SSD. Are there faster SSDs out there? Yes, of course. Are they worth an extra $100+? That depends on your application, I went through enough benchmarks and settled on this drive. I have used SanDisk products in my cameras for years and I trust the brand, the drive performs very well in tests and the price was excellent.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Happy I bought the disk for my Mac book pro 2011, since i put the disk in the computer i cannot run the computer off battery and for the past few days getting read/write errors. The machine seems to crash quite a lot with this side. I put back by old SSD 400GB and all the issues went away, i can use the Mac on battery and it does not give read/write errors.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of junk I should have listened to all the other bad reviews. Would have saved a lot of trouble. Bought the drive in August and is dead in January. Thankfully, I kept my old Western Digital HD intact and its redundant drive so I didn't loose anything. I'll check out Samsung's AVO. Friends tell me it's a better way to go. I do a lot of shooting for clients and average 250K images/year and like to keep current files with me on the road. Thought SSD was better than HD but my HD's have proven more reliable. Thanks WD.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much needed upgrade, Awesome fast SSD This Drive is fast! I didn't think I was missing much on ssds until now. I am coming from an old SATA 2 hdd with 75/50 r/w speed and I was fine with that since my old build wasn't for gaming or anything intense but my new build is and now the 557/500 r/w speed on this sandisk ultra 2 is fantastic. Transfer speeds takes seconds instead of minutes and boot time is way quicker than before. All around a great drive and way cheaper than samsung evos.I was debating to get the pro evos but this sandisk was a steal, 2 for $ (960gb x2) and the only speed difference between the two (ultra 2 vs evo pro) was like 4-9 seconds. Love everything about these drives, they haven't failed me yet and the price was well worth it, no regrets here. if things head south with these drives I'll update this.
