The SanDisk Extreme 240GB does not wow in terms of aesthetics, it provides very good LSI SandForce SF-2281 performance but some drives are emerging as being faster and price wise SanDisk is stuck fighting with other LSI SandForce licensees. I came away with this basic thought, the SanDisk Extreme is

I wanted to put new life in my Dell n5110 laptop, and this drive just made it so much more enjoyable to work with on. It is blazingly fast. Win 8 Pro's boot time is around 10 sec, complete reboot around 15 sec. The Dell ships with a WD 640Gb 5400 rpm drive, so you can imagine the difference in speed - night and day. Photoshop and Lightroom starts almost instantaneously.
From a price/performance ration, this is quite possibly the fastest SSD on the market right now. I picked this up August 22, 2012 for $170 extreme deal of the day. So far I'm very pleased with the performance and am using the as a boot drive/apps in my wife's computer. Very happy indeed!
I am editing my review to say this drive performs extremely well. It was worth the money. But it came with a lot of initial frustration: the SanDisk team messed up and didn't let us know that TRIM was broken on the previous firmware. With the new firmware (which took a long time to arrive) everything performs as expected. SanDisk should have been upfront about this problem, but they never acknowledged their (angry) customers' complaints.
My computer still boots faster with a single SSD SATA3 than a RAID0 2xSSD SATA3. altho RAID0 loads windows faster... take an extra 10+ seconds to get RAID0 up and running on a X79. I personally like to go as big as I can afford. Its not any better or worse than the competition tho, altho my last 120GB mushkin was the cheapest SSD ever built that i have owned...Intel, crucial, corsair... Sandisk has done an awesome job with this drive, being solidly built for a competitive price point. It does what its meant to do.... You will not be disappointed.
