[Review] SSD Sandisk ULTRA 3D 500GB 2.5 inch SATA III – AliExpress

The SSD Sandisk ULTRA 3D 500GB 2.5 inch SATA III was acquired in AliExpress, shop Shop2021013 Store, for use with my second PC, where an old HDD only 250 GB was being the bottleneck of the system, leaving him quite slow.

Motivation and Purchase

My second PC has motherboard Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H-WB Wi-Fi, Processador Intel Core i7-3770k, 16GB Memory Corsair Vengeance Pro (2x8GB) 1600MHz and Power Supply Corsair RM550X. But it was rather slow to still use a HDD only 250 GB, Seagate ST3250823AS to, even with a 64GB SSD as cache, um Sandisk SSD P5, to help.

I calculated that a 500GB SSD would be enough to solve the problem of slow and still leave a good amount of free space for future use, after all is double HDD space, which was almost full.

The 3D Ultra Sandisk is guaranteed 5 years. O model 500 GB is the SDSSDH3-500G-G25. But this line for SSDs 250 GB 4 TB. They reach up 560 MB / sec sequential read speed, and use the 3D NAND technology and nCache 2.0 da Sandisk, that increase reliability and performance, respectively.

Sandisk is my preferred brand for SSDs, because they have a guarantee that actually works. The price of SSD Sandisk ULTRA 3D 500GB 2.5 inch SATA III It was also pretty cool: R$ 305,37 with free shipping. In Brazil I certainly spend at least a 50% most, or would have to settle for a lower model.

Unboxing

Check out the photos and the video of the unboxing from the SSD Sandisk ULTRA 3D 500GB 2.5 inch SATA III:

The SSD came well packed, bubble envelope, without damage to the product or packaging. The store added a SATA cable in the package as a gift, which is one of the very cool.

On the back of the box there is one “scratch card” which reveals a number that can be used to verify the authenticity of the product on the site Sandisk. I auditioned and SSD showed genuine.

Installation and testing

I did the installation of the SSD Sandisk ULTRA 3D 500GB on the PC and transfer the data using the MiniTool Partition Wizard Free.

After that installed Sandisk SSD Dashboard to the monitoring device. Then did tests with the Crystaldiskinfo and the CrystalDiskMark. Check out the results:

Final Considerations

The SSD Sandisk ULTRA 3D 500GB 2.5 inch SATA III totally revitalized the PC where it is installed. Just that slow both the boot and in the use, by slow HDD account. The fact is that SSDs have become almost mandatory items in current PCs. The difference is very big, and use a PC without SSD is increasingly an exercise a lot of patience.

Buying items like this directly from China remains a great option. The delivery was relatively fast, in 15 days, e o pacote não foi tributado.
