All well described but I don't totally agree with all of the following:

It is quiet, it is cooler, but on a MBP 2012, its overall power consuption is more than a regular HDD because, while it's supposed to be sleeping, it's collecting garbage.  I explain further:


I installed the Extreme II 240 in my MBP 2012 and was very disappointed that the built in garbage collection does its job while the computer is supposed to be sleeping, thereby decreasing battery life drastically.  I can pretty well confirm that this is the case, because I called Sandisk's Tech Support and he explained to me how and when the garbage collection takes place.  One such case in which I really noticed the battery life decrease is when my computer had 30% battery left when I closed the lid without shutting it off.  The next morning it was at 0% and off.  :smileysad:  I wish Sandisk would have left the job of collecting garbage to a third party software developer such as Trim Enabler to enable the task on Apple computers.  If anybody knows of any way to make garbage collection work while I'm working and not while the computer is supposed to be sleeping and saving battery, PLEASE: let me know.  If I can't get recommendations soon, I will have to part ways with this SSD. :smileysad:

 

Here are the specs of my computer for reference sake:

13" MBP June 2012

OSX 10.8.4

8GB RAM

240GB Sandisk Extreme II SSD

Garbage collection happens when the SSD is in an idle state not a sleep state. If the SSD is in sleep it will not pull any power. Garbage collection is transparent to the user so I am not sure how you would verify this is taking place at all. Additionally if you have enabled TRIM garbage collection will never really run because TRIM take care of that in real time. 

 

You may have some other issue going on but I do not think it would be related to garbage collection.

Sorry, I should do more testing before I jump to conclusions.  I was mixing up idling and sleeping when talking to the tech support. My battery life has been decent as of late.  Sorry to those that I may have turned off for the possibility of buying one of these SSDs. Can I somehow delete my other post so as to not lead others astray?  

 

Also: Would you recommend that I enable TRIM anyway?

 

To conclude: overall I would recommend Sandisk's SSD.  Thanks for the correction, drlucky.

Re: SanDisk Extreme® II SSD

You can only edit or delete a post for a certain period of time after it is posted. I just checked my post from yesterday and I can't edit or delete it so looks like your post will be there to stay but no worries we have set the record straight so to speak Smiley Wink

 

Yes I would suggest enabling TRIM. I have had this done since I put an SSD in my MAC and I have had no issues whatsoever.

Re: SanDisk Extreme® II SSD compatibility question

Id like to purchase this ssd drive to update my pc as i will be installing Windows 7 x64 bit fresh my older 2009 pc

. it's a Dell Inspiron 530 which only had a 3 Mb/s controller(i think SATA 2???).

 

  i know this ssd is tagged at 6mb/s so is it backwards compatible with 3mb/s? Will this still work?

 

i want to install the OS on the ssd and use a regular hdd for my drive. i don't think my bios has support for trim but still want to get faster not times.

please help.

 

my motherboard is a Dell / Foxconn  G679R G33 chipset board (Intel LGA775) if that matters.

i know the Dell site shows an SSD drive as  Possible upgrade part for the Inspiron 530 as an accessory part on their website but not sure what the max specs this PC can take.

thanks for the help.

Re: SanDisk Extreme® II SSD compatibility question

What SATA chipset is on the MB? there are some issues with older Nvidia chipsets. If you have some other SATA chipset you should be fine.
