    Already have one of these and one of the X300's. Sandisk, now WD make some very nice and often overlooked drives.

    These are nice drives - I had a 960GB unit for a while, but I sold it when I got laid off - bloody good value SSDs.

    I've been using a Sandisk SSD Plus drive and found it to perform well with all the workloads I've thrown at it so far. This drive would be a little bit faster, though there's not much in it. Nice prize!

    Wouldn't say no to this

    Got a couple of SanDisks RAID 0'd in my laptop. 3 years old, still going strong.

    What a coincidence. I was just looking into one of these. Only ssd I have is a 250gb and I'm starting to run out of space so good luck all!

    Re: Win one of three 480GB Sandisk Ultra II SSDs

    I'm still unconvinced about whether an SSD would be worth it for me, but as I have never actually used one I can't say definitively. Perhaps if I win this and try it out, it'll make me change my mind.

    Entered, thanks.
