Boost your PC’s performance
Speed is important, and Ultra II SSD delivers it, but our performance test results measure more than the fastest speed a computer can achieve for a few seconds at a time. It means how long you can count on that speed, how consistently your PC responds, how many things you can do at once without stalling out. It means how well your drive withstands the stresses the world hands out. On a whole range of important metrics, Ultra II SSD performs up to 25 times better than the hard disk drive you’re using now¹.
Experience the cool, quiet, and resilience of an SSD
Greater speed and more storage are not the only advantages of your SanDisk Ultra II SSD. Unlike that old hard drive, it runs cool and quiet, and since it has no moving parts, it’s hard to break. And, SanDisk SSD products are all engineered and tested to resist environmental stress3.
The environmentally friendly choice
Hard disk drives were great in their day, but let’s face it—they had their downsides. First, your laptop could get so hot you couldn’t really hold it on your lap. Then, the fan would start up and make a lot of noise. Sometimes you blew through your battery in what seemed like the blink of an eye. With SanDisk Ultra II SSD, that’s history. With no moving parts inside, your PC will run cool and quiet, your battery will last longer and you’ll use less electricity, too.
Monitor your drive’s status in real time
Your SanDisk Ultra II SSD comes with the SanDisk SSD Dashboard, so you can see at a glance how full your drive is and how well it’s performing. And, the dashboard highlights available offers from other software providers for cloning and security applications, too.
