I bought one of these things as well, performance is poor:
I tried the suggestion from this thread about "Sanitising" the drive, but it failed. The Pre-OS version of Dashboard detected the disk fine, but it failed sanitising.
Now here's the results with a PNY 120GB SSD. Same PC, same system image, same software load, drivers etc etc:
I'm gonna get in touch with SanDisk, it must be duff.

Got an email back from SanDisk with some pretty bone questions, considering that I sent them the above screengrabs.
Anyway, questions answered, the reply should be interesting.

After answering a dozen questions, taking photos and running Crystal Diskmark etc etc, SanDisk have got back to me and told me to contact the retailer. D'you know what? I can't be bothered: I've wasted to much time on this stupid thing already.
It's going in the bin, and I'm not touching anything from SanDisk again with a 10 foot pole. Lesson learned.

Can we get an offcial position on this issue, I just purchased TWO of these garbage adds, which are slower than 10 y old HDD at writing stuff.
I can only do 80mb/s in benchmarks, because when I copied some large files to it, the sustained write speed was ******40mb/s*******
I'm not joking!
Tomorrow I'm returning both units to my retailer, I'm really disappinted with these drives because I have 4 other plus models on other computers and the performance just fine, just this horrible g27 is giving me such mediocre performance.
For now, back to my hdds.
Oh, btw, I heard from SanDisk Brazil that you are about to release a new firmware that suppsedly would fix this issue, could you please just post some official news on this so we can inform ourselves before wasting our time and money? Also, you should advertise write speeds for the plus series in the box! My ssd is nothing more than a glorified sd card. Hell, my 128 gb sd card can sustain 80mb"s write speeds for large files, and my ssd can't, wtf SanDisk?
