With the Extreme SSD 120 GB, SanDisk has a Solid State Drive in its portfolio which is based on the latest SandForce SF-2281 series SSD processor and it also comes with a competitive price tag. The drive features SATA-III support and Kingston claims that the drive can reach throughput rates of more than 500 Megabyte per second. Also for the IOPS the manufacturer promises sky-high numbers. When writing 4 KByte blocks the drive should be able to hit a whopping 80'000 IOPS and more.
I bought this from amazon, gold box deal. It's really "just another" SSD. Fast, reliable, effective. No complaints at the price I paid.
The only thing to beat it was the recent M4 128Gb priced at 109 USD *gasp* with an exchange rate at an all time low of what.. 1.23/4?. Inc shipping its about 150 SGD. Local retailers suck on that.
